A welcoming beach bar with lovely authentic Antiguan dishes and plenty of seating. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The choices of dishes were varied and any slight alterations were given without judgment

Called in on our first night in Antigua. Very quiet but the staff were very attentive & helpful. The food was okay. We called in another evening for a quick drink but the manager seemed more interested in having a domestic with a woman at the bar so we left. We gave it another go as it is great to... More

Met up with some friends who were staying at the Sugar Ridge resort, so we all decided to travel down to Jolly Harbour to hang out at the beach. For brunch, we ate at the nearby Castaways restaurant. Even though I've ventured out to Antigua on a number of occasions, Castaways was my very first visit. I tried the Castaway... More

Castaways has quite a few high points. Free chairs on the beach if you eat there, great curry goat and jerk chicken, actually all the food we have eaten there has been great. It is a bit pricey though. Over $100 for lunch for two adults and two kids (who ate off the kids menu).

Enjoyed a couple of evenings here. The cocktails were great and cheap during happy hour. Ate there twice, first time food was lovely, second time not so good. The menu was on a blackboard and taken to each table so you can wait a while to get to choose your meal.
