Situated in a lovely old dockyard building by the water, the view is wonderful. The welcome was warm and the service good. The cooking was ok but somehow missed being great. The first courses, deep fried squid and Thai crab cakes were better than the rather tough steak and the average chicken for seconds. The price is about average for... More

the food was good enough, especially the crab cakes but having been to other places in Falmouth and English harbour we have had better. Antigua is nota place to worry about prices so my advice is do not try here if you are on a budget.

We visited on a night when there was a big function going on outside. We called on the same day for a table and they duly obliged. A table for eight is not easy to cover even when you're not busy!!! The girls done very well and the food was extremely nice also. I had the lobster & chips and... More

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
