Arrived around 1:30, and ordered drinks which came promptly. Also ordered two starters for our wives and mains (burgers) for myself and my friend. Realised there would be a wait, as there were several other tables with cutlery who had ordered before us. However, we noticed that the party on an adjacent table were getting increasingly annoyed about the slow... More

Beach is nice. Wide sand and the water is pretty. More waves at this beach. The restaurant was just okay. It was busy when we were there and the service was non existent. Lots of seafood on their menu. Turner's beach is nothing compared to Valley Church beach - go to the NEST!

Enough said other than service can be a bit slow by our 'western' standards but we soon got used to that and actually the less frantic atmosphere made for a much more relaxing holiday

Stopped in for lunch. Great burgers and service. Good value. It's right on the beach, has a car park, restrooms and showers. We'll be coming again to try the fish and ribs which look fantastic!

We went to this fine restaurant 4 times during our 2 week trip to Antigua. Often saw locals dressed up as this was their spot for grilled snapper or a Father's Day lunch. Melly who runs the place is great very thoughtful and welcoming. You can arrange a snorkel boat to take you to the reef just 10 minutes away... More

This is a wonderful place to dine out. Being on the beach gives this restaurant the most ideal location. The food is excellent and the service is first class. I had the pan fried fish, it was done to perfection and the portion was ideal. The prices are reasonable.

This is great place to grab lunch when you relaxing on the beach all day. You can walk right up and sit down looking back on the beach and ocean from an elevated view. Had the fish and some drinks and was surprised how good it was. After lunch went right back down to the towels and took a lovely... More

Service is great, I was a guest at Sugar Ridge so our meals and drinks were free. The food is very good, the drinks plentiful. Our shuttle driver got us our loungers as soon as we arrived and we set up and spent the afternoon. It was a great afternoon and one of my favourite beaches, nice and clear ocean... More

pleasant service and simple fresh lunch in smart and clean surroundings. I had a lobster salad which although looked quite meager when it arrived was quite tasty and very enjoyable.The prices seemed very reasonable for Antigua. My husband had a disappointing roast chicken salad.
