Escaping the crowd downstairs at the Antigua fishing tournament, we found ourselves at Hamilton's. Terrific service and a simple menu (which I prefer to a menu that tries to do everything), reasonable prices. Portions were small, but everything was delicious. The lobster basil sauce that accompanied my catch of the day mahi mahi was the best. I scooped up every... More

So we went on a saturday night. I had Tuna stake. It was the best tuna I have had. The reason i rate this bar so highly is not only down to the quality of food and large amount of rum I drank when i went there but because this bar felt authentic. lots of local expats in the bar,... More

Highly recommended by our villa property owners — and rightly so! Gorgeous location at the far end of Nelson’s Dockyard, on the harbor. Upstairs dining on a covered porch was tranquil and romantic. Funky atmosphere inside, walls covered with hilarious chalkboard quotes about wine and champagne! Food was scrumptious — spring roll starter, steak au poivre with hand cut fries,... More

This was a delightful find. We had tomato soup with basil, a burger with fries, and hummus with olives. They also have a great wine selection and the service was friendly and non-instrusive. We especially appreciated the harbor views and sea breeze as we ate on the outdoor deck. Highly recommended!

We ate twice at Hamiltons while on holiday in Antigua and even cancelled a reservation elsewhere to come back for our second trip! Lobster was superb - really great value... Service very good and a birds eye view of all the yachts we'd never be able to afford!!! Would highly recommend.

Good restaurant but a bit disappointed as the menu is very simple, I feel that rum baba, Catherine's and admirals inn are more creative and special. The lobster was great though! View is great

Best bit about returning to Antigua, particularly English Harbour is the array of excellent dining on offer. As soon as we checked in we were off to Hamilton's to revisit our many splendid dinner previously. Although they were fully booked they squeezed us in and everything was lovely as usual. The view and ambience are great, service is very good... More

Great location on the water front admiring to the rather fancy yachts. Large comfy sofas to sip a glass of wine from the extensive wine list before being seating for a table outside whilst admiring the gorgeous artwork on the walls and the many famous quotes scattered around on blackboards. Service was superb, food very yummy - all in all... More

Historic premises in Nelsons Dockyard with a fabulous view. Good food, good wine list, good service, great company, and value for money. What's not to like ?

So, while waiting for the Copper & Lumber seafood night to begin next door, some 45 minutes early, I went up to check out the menu at Hamilton's Wine Bar & Bistro. The greeter was just so darned friendly I took her up on her offer to step inside and take a look, while perusing the menu. Very inviting decor.... More
