We ate here on one of our last nights on the island. We arrived around 6pm, without reservations, and luckily they were able to accommodate our group of five. We were seated at a great table towards the center of the restaurant, but without much interference between us and the great view. All of... read more

The steak and the seafood bouillabaisse were to die for! This is a must eat at high end restaurant. With beautiful views and great food!

Fabulous views and ideal time to visit at sunset. First glass of wine was corked but was replaced quickly. Food was good but very expensive. Service started well but got lazy as the evening wore on. Needs a Maitre D to oversee service. Food was better value at Sugar Club. Overall would recommend Sheer Rocks as better value and service.

Whilst staying at Sugar Ridge we ate at Carmichael's and the service and food was outstanding. The setting is also awesome. It is fine dining, a little pricey but worth every penny.

carmichaels was recommended by a friend. The views are outstanding, the food was describe by the chef as modern Caribbean with world influences. He had a crispy duck salad and a crudo of marlin for starters, both fantastic. Main dishes or coffee crusted pork tenderloin with plantain soufflé- very creative. If your looking for traditional cuisine Carmichael's isn't the place... More

Poor quality for the price. Nice views, but not to die for. Staff lazy and slow, somewhat rude too. Would not recommend it.

We ate here 5 nights when we stayed at Sugar Ridge, every night the staff were excellent. My partner is vegetarian, but the staff were very flexible and went out their way to make something she would enjoy. Gregory the chef was very friendly and always happy to change dishes to suit. The views from the tables were great, it... More

We were allowed to purchase a Mediterranean quinoa salad off the Chef's inspired menu that is normally part of a 3 or 4 course meal. It was exquisite! For the main course,we opted for the Beef Wellington. This was cooked to perfection and very filling. We didn't have room for dessert so we went back the next night. I tried... More

We have been travelling to Antigua for quite a few years and stayed at Sugar Ridge where the restaurant has a superb location on the hill. We had not returned since but this year we returned and was not disappointed. On arrival Marion remembered my wife and was thrilled to see us after several years. To us this makes us... More
