If it's one thing I can always say about this Restaurant, it's Relaxing, Quiet, smooth and friendly staff. Also, you have nice view over looking most of Dickenson Bay and a few other areas. Will always be a restaurant to return too.

Great Antiguan breakfast and service is present throughout meal while not hovering over you. The view and decor (beautiful terrace and marble dipping pool just off the seating area) alone is worth a meal there. They have great lunch specials too. Truly one of the nicest restaurants in Antigua. It's worth your time and money.

We visited recently for a romantic meal for two. My wife is quite fussy and a vegetarian, there weren't many veggie options, but that's not unusual. The decor looks a bit faded and we were unlucky to visit when there were a group of drunken Brits in the bar area (the bar is right next to the restaurant), engaging in... More

Went for dinner because it was very good last year. Disappointing. Had the pumpkin soup which had absolutely no taste. Not even pumpkin taste. My friend has the vegtable pasta dish that didn't have any taste either. Very bland. I have what was chicken alfredo but not described as such on the menu. It was OK but nothing outstanding.

Stopped in for lunch with my son who goes to school on Antigua. Sat at the bar, very friendly and attentive barmaid quickly got us cocktails. We split a perfectly cooked bacon burger with a thick slab to piquant cheese and a very nice bruscetta. A little expensive but ALL food on Antigua is expensive.

Worst service we've seen any where. Staff is so rude and even there is 10 tables empty they still want you to wait 40-50 min. and when we ask them why you're not giving us the table the answer was that's how we do it if you don't want to wait that's your choice.
