Beautiful views

We had the coconut and garlic prawns and the coconut chicken. These dishes were amazing! So tasty! The views from the veranda were stunning and the beach below looked really inviting!

Good food, great view and friendly service. Nice informal setting and really what I was hoping to find in Antigua. I love the fact that the food was wholesome and not fussy which I hate.

We stopped for lunch and enjoyed a seafood and chicken medley and a bread pudding. Our 3 year old are the whole dish as well as the cake. I would not rate the food exceptional as it is basic thing. Family food, I would call it. But it is tasty and well executed. A safe choice also for the kindness... More

We ate at Dennis Bar 3 times during our 5 day stay in Bolans. Our hotel was walkable so we took advantage. The food has a great Caribbean flare and is very authentic. We had the curried goat, the jerk pork, coconut chicken and sweet and hot wings. Everything had very full flavor and was delicious. The restaurant overlooks beautiful... More

What an amazing meal! During our stay in Antigua, my husband and I wanted to try to enjoy as many authentic meals as we could. Dennis' certainly fit the bill. Sandwiched between two of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen, the views were amazing. Dennis himself was at the restaurant and hard at work. The staff was relaxed and... More

The food here is delicious! Spicy is the way! I had a shrimp dish that was perfectly hot. The only drawback in any restaurant on the island is that you always have to pay for water. There is no complementary iced water provided.

Lovely situation, shaded from the sun, and with a view of the wonderful beach. Food was fairly ordinary when we were there, but we only went the one time.

A great place right on the end of Ffryes beach so a fantastic location. Very friendly service and Dennis made sure he chatted to all his customers. We visited for dinner and so it was dark, but lovely to eat with the sound of crashing waves in the background and we had a nice walk along the beach after the... More
