Our favorite meal in Antigua

We were directed here by a local and what a great recommendation it was. Our waitress had the most amazing, sculpted hair style and she couldn't have been nicer. Her drink suggestions, rum punch and dark-and-stormies, were perfect. Our party ordered some salads, the fully-loaded hamburger... read more

Her drink suggestions, rum punch and dark-and-stormies, were perfect. Our party ordered some salads, the fully-loaded hamburger, steak-and-ale pie, fresh fish, and chicken curry. All were excellent and beautifully presented! The... More

Great local sailor bar. Good hearty food and happy hour. Eat before ten or the music will take over.

After being overcharged and ripped off by the bar next door (and other local eating establishments) we found the Mad Mongoose. They serve great food - cooked to order - at reasonable prices and by friendly staff. They have daily theme nights sometimes with live bands after 10pm. And their Paella Nights are very popular. Also if you have a... More

Popped in here for a few drinks on a couple of occasions. Happy hour starts at 4.00 and local drinks are $5 EC which equates to about £1.25 for a large G&T in a nice environment with free nibbles. What's not to like???

I dropped in during the Super Bowl, because the American owner had the game showing on 7 big screen TVs. This is a lively local bar and restaurant within walking distance of both Nelson's Dockyard and Falmouth Harbour. Happy Hour on most nights from 4:00 – 7:00 pm, with drink specials. The food is what you would expect from a... More

We loved visiting the Mad Mongoose for drinks, happy hour and dinner. Whether sitting at the bar, out at the picnic tables, or in the back with the pool tables this is an all around great watering hole. The drinks are cold and the food is tasty and well priced.

Great 'home-cooked' food, and unlike the venue next door does add on charges for tax, service, etc. Friendly owner and staff - who give hugs in abundance.
