Great wine selection, nightly Special Chef creations, menu of carefully selected items, and superb service in a Very Intimate setting. I shared the duck and a chicken selection with a friend.. What a treat! The duck was the best I've had anywhere. Being very small (cozy) great place... More

We visited for our second time this year and the restaurant was great. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious. Portobello appetizer was perfectly cooked and the shrimp special and Mahi Mahi specials were fantastic. Highly recommended for anyone.

I'm a fairly big foodie who has been fortunate enough to eat at some of the best restaurants in the world. I'm not saying that Hector's is some sort of fine dining establishment hidden away in Antigua, but this was a fairly special meal that was prepared with great care and tasted amazing. The steak was cooked to perfection, the... More

Had a great meal here while sitting at the kitchen bar. The lights went out and the staff never missed a beat. No stress, no frustration, just an excellent meal. I had the duck and it was perfect. I'd go back!

Ate their twice - had the steak and the open steak sandwich with amazing sweet potato chips. The service, atmosphere, drinks and food are all perfect. Very reasonably priced for what you get as well.

We went for a dinner to hectors, everything was perfect. The ambiance, the service but most of all, the dinner! If you want a romantic dinner it's the place to be and the boeuf bourguignon was amazing!!

When one hits Antigua one feels the urge to try all that is offered and as so we tried to have each meal of the day for a whole week in different restaurants, sometimes eating small portions or tapas in others so we could visit more than one in each meal. Hector´s Bistro was by far my fa-vo-rite and that´s... More
