The food is very good but also expensive. The personnel was not very friendly. Good place to have dinner.

The food is top, great fish and a mix of carribean and european style. It is a little bit too formal but for sure, if you do not have problems of budget, this is a great place for having a romantic unforgettable dinner. I was there with my family and definetely it was not the right place for urban children...

Try the seafood risotto, the best risotto I have had. Great rum punch (better than most). Great atmosphere.

We had an unplanned lunch there and it was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant. Jacque the owner is quite a character and Allan the chef is incredible.

Sitting right on the waterfront of Meads Bay in beautiful Anguilla, this restaurant has a wide variety of offerings and each one tastes better than the one before. The service is high end but not pushy, the view is wonderful and the food is excellent. Top this all off with a complimentary Lemoncello shot at the end of your meal... More

Terry nailed it in his review...Jacala is a great French dining experience. After starting the meal with a taste of asparagus gazpacho we had the grilled crayfish and shared a salad with lobster, exotic fruits, and vanilla dressing. We finished our meal with creme brûlée and espresso. I don't have the words to tell you just how wonderful it all... More

Francophiles: Gluttonous: Decadence @ Jacala, Anguilla. Francophiles seated everywhere from near and far. Yesterday, Jacala was serving Alain's famous crayfish and avocado salad. It is famous because it is magically delicious as nothing compares to expertly prepared fresh Caribbean Spotted Lobster caught nearby in the gigantic Prickly-Pear reef. This team of closely associated gastronomic experts deliver fine dining to the... More

My husband and I decided to have lunch at Jacala one day on a whim. The owner greeted us, chatted with us briefly, and was very personable. I had the chilled cucumber soup with tomato sorbet…delicious. My husband had the conch chowder which he thoroughly enjoyed. For my entrée, I had lobster risotto (special that day) which was amazing!
