Lovely!

We were recommended this restaurant by fellow holiday makers at our hotel and I agree, it is just lovely - great prawns and lobster and we thought good value. It is more or less on the beach but you wouldn't know this at night so lunch time might be nicer but definitely worth a visit if near by.

We've been coming to Antigua for 12 years and have eaten regularly at OJs, but have to say this time we were underwhelmed. Clearly the location (right on Turners Beach) is fantastic but the food was average with above average prices. We both had Red Snapper which may have been fresh before being frozen, but was dry once defrosted and... More

Go to OJ's to watch the sunset and enjoy their great seafood. It's casual - you can wriggle your toes in the sand whilst enjoying a drink and a lovely evening meal. Try the homemade ginger beer - it's really lovely and won't burn your mouth. Best of all, this restaurant offers great value for money. On a clear evening... More

We came here for lunch whilst passing to get back to the harbor and we are so glad we did! The view is amazing and to have your feet in the sand whilst having lunch is amazing! I had mahimahi and my other half tried the lion fish which was so good!!! The service is great and very reasonably priced!

Food wasn't the best but good. The view, drinks and staff were excellent! Definitely local fish is better than An American hamburger. Stupid choice on my part!

Had a massive freshly caught red snapper here once and lobster the next time. Both very good dishes and friendly staff. Great atmosphere. Great cocktails. Very good prices in comparison with other restaurants in it's class. Would go back for sure.

If you want to eat on the beach in a relaxed,friendly place with good service this is the place. Had a very nice dinner here, not many people but it is the end of the season but there was live music. Very different and very nice.

Ahh...Love to drive through fig tree drive to this side of the island for a lovely lunch served at this restaurant on a beautiful white sand beach. Snapper and french fries and a bottle of white wine....then lounge on the beach and soak in the afternoon sun.....hmmm.

Stopped off for brunch at this charming and rustic restaurant, sand floors in some areas meant the kids could play at our feet when they had finished eating. Varied menu from red snapper to ribs, excellent wine choice and delicious desserts. A thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours with the ocean breeze whipping our hair as we all sat back, ate... More
