We just went for drinks. We were by the pool and watched the sun go down whilst sipping some cocktails. The drinks are not the best I have ever had but they are Ok and reasonably priced... It is a fabulous location and well worth a visit for the view alone...I can't comments about the food other than it seems... More

This is some view! the waitstaff is very nice and the food is very good- quite expensive, but over all worth it! Get there for sunset and enjoy the view!

The view from this restaurant is 'off the clock'. A lovely bar for pre dinner drinks and a varied menu that should suit all tastes. The lamb chops that I ordered for mains, just fell off the bone. Very good service from two attentive girls. The trip up to the restaurant on the golf buggy is an experience in itself.........

Sorry, but honesty first. The view is stunning, no doubt. Unfortunately the food portions are ridiculous small. We didn`t order starters, had to wait 1 hour for our mains. When they arrived, my wifes ravioli had changed to risotto, so we asked for the ravioli, instead of maybe leaving the risotto as a gift and waiting food on our table... More

Had Christmas dinner hear this year. What a great location and view and good atmosphere. Ate from the Christmas menu and I was disappointed that several in the group were served cold food (should have been a hot course). this let them down as the food was good but would have been better if served hot. Still worth a visit... More

The restaurant is at the top of Sugar Ridge and has a stunning view. The bar is really relaxed and well run with a great selection of cocktails. The food is amazing, the chef was delightful and came to my table to organise a vegetarian starter for me so I could still have the tuna from the specials menu. The... More

I've been to Carmichaels a few times over the years. The food is good although choice limited despite several options ( for example no hot starters ). The service is ok but not what you'd expect for a fine dining restaurant when you compare it to others on the island. The atmosphere is slightly lacking but this could be due... More

There are many good places to eat in Antigua and I had expected this to be one of the best however I was disappointed with the overall experience. The whole experience feels like an overpriced chain hotel restaurant. It requires some effort to get there as it is at the top of the ridge. Suggest you don't dress up for... More

There are mixed reviews here, but we had a lovely meal. On the more expensive side than other restaurants but service was excellent and we had a lovely meal. Fabulous sunset views over the Caribbean sea and jolly harbour. When leaving ask for a golf cart to take you back down to the bottom.
