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.

Our first night at Sugar Ridge we dined at Carmichael's. It was perfect. The food was spectacular and the setting and view was ridiculous. We started at the bar for their famous Mojitos which were the best we had on our trip. The view of the pool and the ridge was great. We sat for dinner in the open air... More

The location and setting of this restaurant is beautiful and everything started so well with lovely cocktails at the bar. The quality of the food served was however somewhat of a mixed bag. Starters and desserts were v nice but for our family, 3 of our 4 main courses were disappointing - the snapper was over cooked and the filet... More

Great view but go during the day. Restaurant is high up on a mountain with great view during the day but just lights at night. Food is excellent, service is great. Price is comparable to a 4 star American Restaurant.

This is the first restaurant we ate at arriving after a long haul flight from the UK. The restaurant is perched high on a hill top overlooking the Sugar Ridge hotel and harbour area. There are many tables for two with a view for that romantic evening dinner. Adjoining the restaurant are three covered lounging areas alongside a small pool... More

Great setting, great view great pool,end of greats. Was here for a wedding dinner where all meals had been pre ordered. Service was slow and disorganised and the food when it arrived was cold and fairly bland. Based on this performance gave it a miss for dinner during the rest of our stay.

This is Sugar Ridge's "fine dining" restaurant. The grounds of the restaurant are beautiful. The mountain top view and open dining atmosphere is worth a trip for dinner. If you go early enough you can snag a drink by the beautiful infinity pool during sunset. Service is great, but the overall food taste and quality was just okay. The menu... More

Beautiful location here inside the Sugar Ridge hotel....but you'll pay for it!! By far our most expensive meal on the island ($170 for 2 people who split a bottle of wine). The food was pretty good but where we got stuck with pricing was on the water. We didn't specify that tap water was fine so they poured bottled water.... More
