This small privately owned island was an experience. The shuttle boat is free. Either Brandon or Alexander will take you via boat from the dock and back. The family is very friendly. Eudoxie and Sandra are very nice. We had the crayfish and lobster , and it was very good. Lots of food, I am ashamed to say that I... More

You will pay for the experience. There are many better meals on Anguilla for less money (see Veya). We ordered two lobsters. They were split in half and grilled, both were very generous sizes. They were topped with a delicious sauce made in house, and a small side of pasta salad. The location is charming. The live music and rum... More

The owner (man) needs serious training on customer service! Sarcastic and rude. Free boat ride to the island was the only good part of this visit. Won't ever return.

Definitely a serious lunch !! Way over priced !! Yes you get a free boat ride over but 90.00 for lobster ! The gentleman who runs it is not a nice person. Arrogant to say the least. Had the kids working there quote us 5 dollars for a rum punch. If they were 5 dollars how come our bill was... More

No serious "foodie" should miss this fabulous Anguilla island landmark! We each year to our favorite lunch spot. Take the time and enjoy the day on this small off-shore island (a quick boat trip from land or while at sea). Eudoxie (aka "Gorgeous") and his wife Sandra (who retains her southern charm even after more than 20 years!) and their... More

We didn't know what to expect when going here, but we were really surprised! I won't describe the entire thing, as other reviewers have done that. But hitting the important points... Good things: - REALLY good food, huge portions. We had the crayfish and the chicken. My husband's plate of crayfish alone had 4. The chicken crayfish combo had 2... More

My husband and I could see Scilly Cay from our balcony at the Arawak Beach Inn and thought taking the boat over for lunch would be a charming little experience and we could swim/snorkel/enjoy the beach. When we arrived, we found there were no menus - but we could order giant plates of grilled lobster or chicken. We were hoping... More

The owners are friendly and the food is great. I had the lobster and my wife had the crayfish. Everyone on Anguilla will let you know that the rum punches here are the strongest on the island and they're not kidding. Just show up on the pier at Island Harbour on the East end of the island and the boat... More

We took a day trip to anguilla and to scilly cay for lunch. We got there at 11am and were the first ones there - the island is beautiful! The conch shell fences, abundant lounge chairs and live music are awesome. So is the free ride to and from! The food is marvelous! The crayfish cannot be missed - yum!... More

Scilly Cay is a place that is like no other. It's almost like you are in the middle of a well-written fictional novel. Sandra and Eudoxie Wallace are super friendly and awesome cooks/mixologists [their son was not a bad barkeep himself] From the way we arrived to the amazing lobster to Sandra's stories of the past 30 years is not...
