Spicy Prawns, Jerk Chicken and the best beach in Antigua!

This was our favourite beach and we ate lunch here five times during our 10-day stay on the island. Beautiful views and excellent, friendly service. Sun beds available and no pushy vendors, only a few friendly ladies selling jewellery and hair braiding. Wonderful food and meals each time. We think... read more

Having eaten Christmas Dinner at Dennis's in 2012, we did not think that meal could be beaten. But, we were wrong. The 2014 dinner was even better. The pumpkin soup to start had a wonderful flavour. The main course was turkey, gammon, sweet potato mash, rice, coleslaw and stuffing and was a great mix. But the best part of the... More

I have been visiting Dennis's for a few years and it has improved immeasurably with a new beach bar/restaurant that has great west-facing views, including dramatic sunsets. What started as sundowners (old-fashioned rum punch - a quadruple measure - at EC$15) turned into a look at the menu and then dinner. The goat curry (or coat gurry as it became... More

Perched on the top of the hill, with amazing views over Ffryes beach, Dennis' place has always impressed for its laid back style and excellent food. Don't expect super fast service, but do expect a lot of banter and a laugh - especially if you're a regular. Reasonable prices and a nice place to go after a swim in the... More

We ate lunch here three times during our 9-day stay on the island, and had excellent service and meals each time. Dennis' restaurant overlooks one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, Ffryes Beach, which is an added bonus. Highly recommend.

We have rated here many times and food is always tasty although we feel over rated and over priced. We lunched on Christmas Day and left full but disappointed as there was just no effort made by the management and staff to get a special Christmas thing going. It was just like any other day where the main objective was... More

I've been to Dennis's many times.  Dennis has a bar at the north end of Ffreyes Bay and a restaurant right up the hill facing the other direction, overlooking Coco Beach.  I love the bar -- the view is wonderful (Ffreyes is very picturesque, and on a nice day you can see Montserrat on the horizon) and the drinks are...
