This is the most talked about place in yachtie season. Don't go there just for the food (although it's great), go there for the atmosphere and the friends. Paolo, the owner, is passionate about his lontime adopted island and this Italian, knows how to start a party and keep it going until the wee hours. Abra's is definitely on our... More

Unfortunately, I did not eat there but went twice for dancing. It is a famous place on the island and the venue is very well located and nice.

Having a delicious Italian dinner on an al fresco terrace it's an experience I would recommend when going to Abracadabra. You can enjoy a full night there, as after dinner you can dance in the club part of the building: Ask Paolo, the manager, for the daily suggestions and indulge on the choice of fresh hand made ravioli: the ones...

The owner was quite friendly and offered to show us the basement with its meurtrières when asked about the history of the restaurant’s main building (which apparently pre-dates the dockyard constructions). The food was good, and when they didn’t have the ice-cream flavour I ordered, we were offered complimentary digestives. There weren't many patrons there that night but it made... More

Though I've never eaten from the restaurant. I have partied till the sun came up at Abras. During the winter yacht season Abras is the place where all the yachties go to party on the weekends. If you like techno and reggae and everything in between, this is the spot to be on a Friday/ Saturday night.

Ok I may be a typical Brit but my idea of an Italian restaurant is pizza, calzone, lasagne, spaghetti bolognese and garlic bread. If you like all of these things then don't go here as they don't serve them. Very disappointed

The Abracadabra cocktail is out of the world. The atmosphere is fantastic and the food is damn good too! Would definitely go back if I ever get the chance. We even were fortunate enough to meet the owner, who checked to see if everything was alight with our meal. He suggested a few places for us to visit during our... More

This is simple. English Harbour is a stunning setting. This restaurant is beautiful, such a stunning place that has evolved over time, all of it unique, quirky, welcoming and combine to create a fantastic dining environment. One of the partners is still hands on and explains the menu with real passion. I ended up ordering all the specials and didn't... More

Paolo is extremely passionate about the food they serve here and I have to admit it was very good. The shared starter plate is very good and my beef was cooked exactly to my liking so no complaints. Paolo is a natural front of house talent with his warm enthusiastic personality and friendliness. This combined with the laid back Caribbean... More
