The restaurant is slightly raised from beach level, on a headland between Cocobay Beach and Ffryes Beach. A huge stack of blue-canvas beach loungers is available for users of the bar/restaurant and the sand quality is excellent. This beach is not as crowded as some other Antiguan beaches with the same quality white sand. Recommended lunch is spicey shrimps with... More

We tried Dennis's for lunch based on the TA recommendation. We booked in advance. The food was good and the location is lovely - and the food was reasonably priced for the location. The staff were lovely. The bread pudding (and I don't like bread pudding) was delicious. The food was good. Freshly cooked. Good quality. We would definitely go... More

We spent a few hours on the beach by the Dennis Cocktail Bar and Restaurant, and eventually ended up wandering up the stairs and ordering some cocktails. Didn't have a chance to eat, but their painkiller cocktails definitely were delish! Gorgeous view, friendly staff, laid-back atmosphere and the menu looked good. Hate I didn't have time to try the food!... More

We had visited Dennis' once before on a previous stay in Antigua when we hired a car and stopped off for lunch. This time we were staying just a 2 minute walk away so it was our local. We loved each visit, having had 3 lunches and 3 dinners. The staff were friendly, fun and attentive (especially Dennis and Simone),... More

This is what you hope for from a Caribbean beach bar - friendly & polite service, great food, overlooking a terrific beach. I loved the spicy shrimp, but would recommend you go along for Sunday lunch when their special is suckling pig. We had lunch here several times and dinner on Wednesday evening when the upper restaurant is open. Had... More

Visited here one day and tried to book an evening meal, but as it was low season, they would only take very early (6:30 pm) bookings, which was a little too early for our party. We decided to come back for lunch on our last day. The service was good, if a little slow (This is the Caribbean!) , but... More
