We had a great experience at Jacala. The food and drinks were amazing. We stayed at Viceroy and it was about a 10-15 minute walk down the beach. Our reservation was at 7:00pm so we were able to watch the sunset while walking and also from our table. The owner was walking around taking orders, showing us the daily caught... More

We had a wonderful table right on the beach. The lighting on the beach at night was beautiful. We had a delicious chilled cucumber soup with a spicy tomato sorbet, fresh crayfish, lobster with spinach in puff pastry special. It was one of our favorite meals on the island. Great service.

We had made a reservation which was just as well since there was only 1 table left when we arrived. We were seated promptly, give the menus and asked what our preference for water would be. After that, we were left for 20 minutes without being asked if we'd like a drink. The owner or maitre 'd seemed to be... More

This was our second time eating lunch at Jacala. Food is amazing. NY Quality. Beautiful location right on Meads Bay. Steps away from the water. The food is gourmet quality. It wont disappoint.

What a gem! We enjoyed a delicious beachfront lunch at Jacala. Ordered two of the best salads we'd ever had. Fantastic rose. finishing off your meal with the cafe gourmand dessert (best creme brulee I've ever had) is a MUST! The chef came out and greeted us, the owner is very friendly. A must visit on Meads Bay!!

Jacala is an institution on Anguilla. Beautiful selling on the beach that attracts all the beautiful people. Food is expensive but not out of line with other expensive restaurants on the island. Sit as close to the front as possible to try and catch some of the sea breezes.

Jacala came highly recommended from everyone we spoke to. Our dinner was as good as everyone said! We had the sirloin steak which was seasoned to perfection…. really. Also had the pork which was tender and the sauce was superb! It was beautiful night with a warm sea breeze. Be sure to make a reservation.

My husband and I went here for dinner. Sadly I have to say this was one of our worst dinners on the island. We stared with the veggie feta appetizer it was gross not what we expected at all. My husband had the lamb chops which he said were good but wish they had more flavor. I had the Lobster... More
