Chicken sandwich was good but wouldn’t recommend it for kids as it had some kind of sauce all over it and some vegetables (couldn’t tell what kind with all the sauce…think it was onions and peppers). It was a great sandwich, just not a plain sandwich most kids would like. Best rum punch on the island! Finally found a place... More

This spot is literally right on the beach and off the beaten path road wise.The view is great, the water crystal clear and the the sand is powdery white. The food is pretty good and the ribs are what I recommend. It is on the expensive side for a plate of 4 ribs but hey, you are in paradise and... More

Caribbean beach bar and restaurant. Extremely rustic at the end of the beach at Shoal Bay East. Getting there is an adventure. The service was good and the food Ok but you go for the atmosphere of a rustic beach-bum bar at the end of Shoal Bay East. It isn't easy to get to and a good 15 minute walk... More

We went here a couple of Sundays. The first Sunday there were lots of people and the dance floor was packed. It was awesome!!!! You couldn't help but smile and laugh. It was such a good time. We had the ribs and chicken and it was good. The second Sunday it was still good energy. You cannot help but dance... More

We always enjoy hamburgers at Gwen's..and after years of travelling they may be my most favorite in the world. The side salads and the happy faces make every day a happy one. Of course you do need to come on Sunday afternoon for Tap's band and some fun music and dancing. Truly a must do for Anquilla

Loved meeting Gwen and sharing a great time at her perfect location. The beach is right at the door, how can you go wrong. Loved the entire experience. The food was very good, the music perfect and the overall day could not have been better.

The time to go is Sunday afternoon or Thursday. The band, dancing, and (most importantly) people watching is best when the Scratch Band is playing. The food is fine, nothing to write home about but totally fine. We had ribs, which were quite good though not best-thing-I've-ever-eaten. What was best was the band, which was quite good pop-reggae with charming... More

We have been to Gwen's a number of times. You can drive there or take a walk down from Shoal Bay. The walk is a little interesting due to the beach erosion but the view when you round the point is unbelievable. The variety of colors in the water go beyond description. When you get there you will find picnic... More

We had lunch at Gwen's Reggae Bar, and while the view was awesome...it was clear that we hit this bar at the wrong time. Apparently, this place really rocks on weekends, but we were there on a Monday, and the place was absolutely dead. The beach looks like it was hit hard by recent stoms, as it showed vast erosion...
