I came here during a special night. It was a few years ago that I was living in Antigua and there was a huge set of yacht parties going on in the harbour. I didn't eat here but I did drink here (open bar at that event) along with many visitors from the yachts. It was such an awesome time... More

Good, wholesome, unpretentious, delicious food, with courteous service. Especially liked the chicken and mushroom pie, also the fish and chips. Pork ribs were also very good. Would have liked to have gone through the entire menu in the 8 days in English Harbour but wanted to also sample other eateries. My fall back restaurant when undecided. Good location.

Takes a while for your food, that will be fried and salted, if that’s what your into. Not bad for bar food, lobster actually wasn't that bad, don't get stir fried vegetables if you don't want them drowned in soy sauce and salty. Pricy and Happy hour is just beer and rum punch not good drinks.

My wife and I had two burgers and two cokes totaling $31.00 USD. The food was good, the service was acceptable, and we loved the giant dry erase board the waitress carried around for a menu. Would recommend the Mad Mongoose for those looking for a laid back meal right in Falmouth Harbour.

We visited Antigua just recently and we booked a table to watch the Super Bowl and to have dinner. Even though the game was not the best, the evening will be well remembered because of the service and the food we received at Mad Mongoose. I ordered a burger that was really delicious and just the right size. My friends... More

We went to happy hour nearly every day of our vacation for the fantastic specials (beer, wine, well drinks and rum punch for approximately US$2 apiece), served by cheerful bartenders to locals, tourists and expats. Our drink of choice was their very tasty dark-and-stormy (made with house-made ginger beer), but the rum punch and local beers were also worth trying.... More

From the outside of the place I didn't expect much, but was really surprised. I had the coconut shrimp, it could have used a touch more sauce but otherwise great. The rice was flavorful and worth every bite. I was wishing more shrimp would appear on my plate! My husband had the West Indian curry. Presented with a flatbread on... More

If you are visiting English Harbour in the evening, you must go to this place - particularly at Happy Hour (4pm to 7pm). It is a really lively, fun, relaxed place. The staff are excellent - particularly "Junior" behind the bar. The bar snacks and restaurant food is all good. Everything is excellent value for money. We tend to go... More

The overall vibe of the place is nice, with those familiar bar items like pool, darts, etc. A huge an overwhelming negative memory of this place was that my phone was stolen. It would not have been that bad, but the owner (?) was very unsympathetic about the whole situation and even insinuated her staff were involved. It was taken... More

The Mad Mongoose was a nice bar that we went to a few nights for some drinks. It is located at English Harbor close to many restaurants and pubs. The bar itself is set in with a Caribbean and low-key vibe and is very relaxed. Prices were about 8 EC dollars for a mixed drink. We tried out there mudslides... More
