This is an amazing find. the food was outstanding and the service was even better. The specials Board was our selection for dinners. Whole Snapper grilled and and this was outstanding. Nice wines but not over the top in prices. looks like an exciting club atmosphere later on but we departed at 915 and still no action.

We have been regular visitors to Antigua for many years and have somehow overlooked Abracadabra before so this year we thought we ought to give it a try. Sadly, based on our experience I doubt we will be back in a hurry. Firstly, we perhaps chose a bad night (a Tuesday) but between 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm there were... More

This is always the first place i visit when landing in Antigua because arriving at Abras makes you feel like you're coming home. Simply cooked, delicious, fresh italian cuisine. Their pumpkin ravioli is the simply the best (especially when washed down with one of Sonias Passionfruit cocktails!).

Near the historic Nelson's Dockyard, this restaurant looks very Caribbean, but is as Italian as possible, including the owner explaining the menu in brilliant Italo-English to each table. Large choice of food and well executed. Some great wines. All in all a pleasant evening out.

We have been going here for the last 7 years, but had not been on Trip Advisor to extoll its virtues,( which are considerable). WE ate early, before the 9pm rush, and thought it better for it, the anti pasta was generous and well thought out, the mains, two fish and a wonderfull suckling pig, were generous, well cooked, all...

Repeat visit one year after last one. Welcomed by the ebullient owner who gives a great explanation of the food from a board. Menu is traditional Italian well prepared and cooked...don't expect uk type Italian, this is the stuff they eat in Italy but using local ingredients and all the better for that. Location by car park not great but... More
