Great atmosphere, great food

We were surprised by a pasta and salad buffet special - all very excellent. It's not every night, so when you call for reservations, which I highly recommend, ask when that is offered. Well worth it. All tables are waterfront. Service is slow, but that seems to be standard for Antigua... read more

Good service, fresh food, and very reasonable! It can be hard to find a meal in Antigua that hits that perfect balance of good food, comfortable atmosphere, and timely service. Al Porto succeeds year after year. The live music is a real plus too!

If you are in the mood for some authentic pizza, look no further. The pizza oven is real. Caprese salad could benefit from riper tomatoes, but the cheeses are truly superb.

Overlooking the boats in Jolly Harbour - a bit out of the way of most of the other restaurants there. Reservations are essential. Great choice of very good food at good prices. Service is smiley.

Everyone raved about the restaurant and pizza but I think it was average at best. Nice atmosphere with live music. Requires a reservation. The calamari tasted like cheap deep fried batter and the pizza was hard. Suggest going to Sheer rock if you want the best meal in St. Mary's

The Pasta, seafood and tenderloin were outstanding. The service was friendly and prompt. The live music was lovely but not overpowering ( you could talk and be... More

This restaurant is located in Jolly Harbor. Service was excellent! I had the 24 ounce Angus "Cowboy" medium rare. Our waiter was very attentive, and the hostess was also very nice. The steak was fantastic, perfectly cooked. The surroundings were great (on the water/docs), the restaurant was meticulously clean, and everyone was very pleased with their food. This may be... More

I wiah I could give them 10 stars. We went there for their Lobster Sundays, and what a treat that was! For XCD$100 (US$37), you get a whole gigantic lobster and the sidedish buffet of salad, pasta, steamed vege, and potato. They said they were 2lbs lobsters, but they must have been at least twice that. They were so huge,... More

We ate here last week and are heading back for our "farewell to Antigua" dinner before returning home to Canada. My husband had the Americano pizza and I had the Diavolo. Both were perfect with a wonderful thin crust. Loved eating on the open patio. Our waitress was so friendly - a French Canadian girl!
