Yummy!

Great food! I loved the pumpkin soup. The mahi-mahi was also quite delicious, as was the key lime pie dessert. Very good indeed!

Great food. Great service. Absolutely love this place. Will go back everytime I'm in Antigua. The garlic shrimp and keylime pie are to die for.

We were recommended Hemingways by our hotel as a good spot to watch the Carnival from. They were spot on with their recommendation, as we were sat upstairs on a great balcony, from which we had a great view. Very friendly wait staff and we all had cocktails which were nice and strong. We didn't eat here but that was... More

Visited St John's for the carnival and happened upon this cafe while looking for a good spot to view the parade. Had a wonderful Rum Punch! Lovely, friendly service.

Stop by Hemingways and eat on the balcony, enjoy a cold frothy beverage and watch the locals stroll by below. Best jerk chicken wrap and key lime pie around. This place is a must stop for everyone in Antigua.

Had a nice meal with cocktails, crab cakes and steaks. Not a bargain but fairly priced. Very friendly service. Being the Caribbean, the parade was late and we'd finished our meal... More

On a first floor with a verandah overlooking the street, Hemingways is a casual restaurant without compromising the quality of food or service. The menu is small but essentially Caribbean in style, with both fish and meat. Service was friendly and attentive. Prices are reasonable. A great place to watch the world go by, either on the ground floor, in... More
