We ate here our first day in Antigua. Closest restaurant to our condo at Tranquility Bay. The front desk recommended this restaurant. We do NOT recommend it. The service was slow, the food overpriced and the portions were small. We were tired from traveling and just wanted a place to eat and relax. We were approached by 2 local guys... More

We arrived on Saturday and decided on this nearby beach front restaurant for our supper. We are fully aware when we travel outside the States that dining experiences are at a more relaxed pace and my family appreciates that when on holiday. But we were not prepared for the extremely long wait for our food and we also notice that... More

I must preface this with the disclaimer that we had just spent 2 hours plus in the immigration line after our travel from the frigid north. I was looking for a smile, good beer, some tasty food and my bed. Leisurely dining was not in my plan. I got my beer and my bed, and after another 2 hours plus,... More

We stayed for a week in a villa practically next door to this place. We ate there once - not wanted to repeat that experience! The restaurant part gets 2 stars from me. Nice, friendly service but the food was seriously overpriced. Really small, almost tasteless portions. My 4 stars comes from the beach bar part. After we had been... More

The staff was very friendly, including the owner. The food was quite bland with small portions and overpriced.

Beware of taxi drivers that that operate out of Castaways. This is a huge cruise ship stop...at least one a day stop during our two week visit, taxi drivers prey on people not knowing the area. Castaways is right down the street from Jolly Harbor with what appears to be all kinds of security... but it is only for looks.... More

Sorry Guy's but we had the worst meal here during our 2 week holiday. The staff were friendly and its quite a nice place. We waited an hour, which we didn't mind but when it arrived it was truly bad. My husband had fish that was so tasteless he covered it in pepper. I had bbq pork which was mainly... More

We ate at Castaways once during our trip to Jolly Harbour. The food was ok but the service was inattentive at best. I'm a person who likes to slow down and enjoy a meal, but I think having to wait 10 minutes to order drinks - when the restaurant was mostly empty - is a bit much. Second time we... More
