Nice spot, decent food

We ate here on the first night of the Antigua carnival and got a table on the balcony overlooking the street where the parade was due to come down. 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... read more

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.

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

We visited Hemingways on a wet Monday at the start of our holiday to celebrate my wife's 50th and my daughters 21st. The cab driver had dropped is at the duty free shopping section which is OK but nothing special and definitely not a memorable one for Antigua. We found this bar whilst we had an hour to burn waiting... More

The location is on a corner, on the first floor. An outside balcony goes the whole way around the building, so great for people watching and lots of breeze!. The staff were very friendly, the food (conch curry and shrimp curry) absolutely delicious and all very reasonably priced. Will defiantly visit again if in Antigua.

the food was like a sport bar food and the tables were filthy. i would say it is more of a tourist area.. however nothing else around there was any better. to be safe -- i would go to this place first than the others.
