I know this is a highly reviewed restaurant but it's very small (maybe a dozen tables) and the food it pretty average as far as more expensive trendy restaurants go. I was definitely underwhelmed. A tip--you are going to have to ask for everything. You want bread, ask. If you want butter to go with that bread, ask. Want your... More

Ate here last night. Wonderful fettucini. Wine, especially Spanish Malbec great. The best is 5 tables and an international clientele.

Delicious steak sandwich and sweet potato chips! Cosy restaurant. Scented candles not such a great idea as interfered with smell of food.

This is a small little restaurant across the street from one of the main churches. The food was excellent. Pace of service is "relaxed," but not disrespectful. Just a great, little place. Love it!

I went with my parents to Hectors to celebrate their wedding anniversary. All of us have lived in France at various times in our lives. I like a small restaurant, I like a small menu but this didn't work. The space was long passed cozy - very cramped. The toilet was basically in the kitchen, with only a little sliding... More

Hector's is a not-to-be-missed restaurant for foodies. The menu is basic French fare, with daily specials. The Hubby had the beef bourguignon, which was delicious. I had the daily special, filet mignon with large shrimp in a creamy sherry sauce. Yum! Hector's is a staple on the scene in Antigua for a reason. Definitely stop in to this small, delightful...

Great reviews led us there and we have to agree, it is great. Crowded but while not my favourite mode, we enjoyed it. Food was perfect - salad and roasted tomato appetizer and duck. Delicious!! We will be back!

Although this restaurant has gone downhill in the past few years I've eaten there the Beef Bourguignon has remained spectacular and is reasonably priced. I highly rate this dish.

I went there in the evening on the last side when most of the guests were leaving. As I was looking outside the menue a lady said to me "great food but terrible service here". So perhaps I had low expectation. There was only one lady serving so if I came earlier, perhaps I would be frustrated about the service.... More

My three hour stopover in Antigua went from frustrated to elated. I happened upon Hector's and saw the French menu and free wifi and my quick snack to work for an hour turned into NO work but the most incredible Bleu Cheese burger with fries I've ever had. The menu was enticing but I was undecided - as luck would... More
