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...

Good for a day on the beach to hang out and have drinks and lunch, also great for sunset spot and if you stay long enough on a Friday you might get to dance with Dennis. Amazing ribs, good island style food and make sure you buy a bottle of chefs hot sauce. People are super friendly and excellent price... More

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
