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...

Didn't go swimming. Just came for the sunset and the $5 crayfish specials. Wonderful. The best cole slaw I ever had. Tried to get the recipe but they would not part with it.

Wow! Scilly Cay was a beautiful and delicious experience. The meal was amazing. We had 16 in our group, and the service was great. The island was beautiful and made for a great beach day. They have a free shuttle to the island. It only took an hour to prepare a delicious meal for 16. We enjoyed a beautiful day... More

I absolutely love scilly cay. The hosts Gorgeous, Sandra, Alexander and Brandon are gracious and go out of their way to make sure you have a fantastic experience. The island itself is remote and secluded. The food is deeeliiicious and the rhum punch will knock you out (in a good way of course!) Lived on the island for 16 months;... More

All the dishes come with peanut sauce over the fish or chicken. As I began to go through a serious peanut allergy episode I left the lobster uneaten and refused to accept their invitation for a lobster without sauce (you can not eat while going into shock). We closed the tab shortly after to decide whether to go to hospital... More
