It will be hard to find a more beautiful Garden setting in Antigua. The fish was overcooked but good anyway. Service good but not very friendly. The burger was good but expensive. Probably because the cost of mushrooms are excessive in Antigua. We would return another day.

We went with a large group and were treated to a very fine meal. I had the Mahi Mahi on Polenta. I don't know that any restaurant I've been to has offered this combo, boy did it work! the polenta was creamy and buttery and really went well with the fish. The restaurant it self was beautiful and well kept.... More

this little restaurant has a beautiful, calm garden at the back with a lot of shade - welcome respite from walking around in the heat. the food is western, decent, and good local drinks (like horchata and jamaica). nice little food shop at the front too. all in all, worth a pitstop

Impressive garden with seating built around a pond and some ruins, well-trained and professional service, cry clean. Perhaps best portobello mushroom ($9US) burger ever, Tilapia ($9US) was acceptable. Hard to fault the place. I must say we didn't feel good intestinally after the fish for dinner, then the burger for lunch the next day. Can't say it was this place,... More

Our first meal in Antigua was at Epicure. We happened upon it; only to find out later our daughter who lives there would have suggested it. The setting is charming & the food was very good.

Friends and I quite enjoyed going to this restaurant while we were in Antigua for six weeks. The garden setting is serene and lovely, the service very attentive and the menu and wine choices are excellent!

Fantastic dinner at a friendly restaurant. My main dish of Mahi Mahi stuffed with asparagus over polenta was to die for. Restaurant works well for medium sized groups. If you're in Antigua you should definitely have at least one meal here.

The owner, John, is very kind and considerate of my wife's gluten problem and makes sure that her meals are prepared accordingly. We live here in Antigua and this is the principal place we eat out at. This is a nice family restaurant, so if you looking for a bar scene or a disco, please don't go there! there is... More

This is certainly the best restaurant I ate at in all of central America and perhaps in my life. It is owned by a man who has made a lifelong search for happiness and of course food, prepared in just the right amounts and with great care) is part of his quest for happiness. He also owns a farm, so... More
