Wow...had the best meal yet at Rum Baba....an exquisite starter of small squid stuffed with caramelised onions and a main course of seared wahoo in a subtle sesame and soy marinade. I'm not even a great fish eater...but if this place was local, I'm not sure I'd eat meat again! Staff were also friendly and attentive......and made it all the... More

If you are in Antigua and you're vegetarian/vegan, this is THE place to have lunch. Traveling as a vegan is always an adventure, but the buffet lunch at Rum Baba's blew me away. Easily the best vegan/vegetarian I've had any where, the buffet offers multiple vegan/vegetarian choices, in addition to the meat and seafood dishes.. The fusion of tastes with... More

A little more expensive than some local restaurants but the quality of food and service make it well worthwhile visiting. Wonderful fish and tasty meat all served with a smile - go!

A rare night away from the kids allowed us to try the highly recommended Rum Baba. We started with the spicy prawns, followed by the oriental seared wahoo and lamb tagine. The food surpassed our expectations and is some of the best I've experienced on the island. Fresh and simple dishes packed full of complex, but well balanced flavours. With... More

What looks from the outside to be a road side shack, is in fact a tiny, shabby chic restaurant offering undoubtedly the most imaginative and best quality/ value we have found so far in Antigua. An Italian / French partnership have come up with inventive twists on traditional dishes, the red snapper in coconut milk starter was fabulous as was... More

Hilaria and Serge never let us down with their fantastic food in an intimate lively atmosphere. Need to make reservations early for dinner which speaks for itself. Every time we go we meet other regular visitors which is about the best endorsement you can get.
