“'What's not to Love"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

After coming to Antigua for over 10 years its always very exciting to find new great eateries and everything about this place is exceptional. I was lucky enough to fit in two trips over the last two weeks and just wish I had found it sooner!

The restaurant itself is beautifully furnished with great attention to detail and is run by Jacqui and Rachel who are extremely helpful and friendly. It serves simple fresh delicious food and is positioned on the stunning west side of the island directly on the white sandy beach with crystal clear turquoise sea. We had a truly memorable time enjoying great hospitality and food and rounding off the day relaxing with a refreshing cocktail on the magnificent beach. This place is truly fab and deserves to be highly recommended - I can't wait to go back!!!

“Wonderful lunch !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We visited Jacqui O's on the same day as the 50th birthday celebration , and after singing Happy Birthday we were kindly given some of the delicious birthday cake - thank you!
This is our eleventh summer spent in Antigua and we all think that Jacqui O's is a wonderful find!

The decor is exquisite - we described it as Girlie Caribbean Shabby Chic !!! and its location is amazing !- set on a really beautiful beach .

Our lunch was excellent - we all had different meals and all thought our own was the best - I had the Middle East wrap! After a really wonderful lunch ,we relaxed on the beach on loungers or in the hammock and then had a lovely swim .Rachel and her lovely staff were very welcoming and kept us plied with delicious cocktails.We really didnt want to leave !

However we will return next summer and head straight back to Jacqui O's!

“Amazing day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

My great friends who my husband and I are here on holiday with organised a 50th birthday celebration lunch yesterday at Jacqui O,s and it was an amazing memorable day, Rachel could not have looked after us better and the hospitality shown was second to none. The decor and style is so pretty with a wonderful relaxed ambience. A beautiful birthday cake was presented which was a great treat to soak up all the wonderful cocktails. We eventually retreated onto the beach beds on the most beautiful beach ever after a dip in the warm calm sea followed by yet more cocktails to watch the sun go down with. Perfect place for a romantic dinner or a fun party.
Thoroughly recommend!!
Thanks Rachel.

“Great place to chill whilst waiting for your flight connection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

My son and I visited for a great lunch and lazy afternoon, whilst waiting for our flight connection onto Nevis. They were great in arranging a taxi to collect us and take us back to the airport. Had a fabulous lunch, would recommend the seafood platter and chilli chicken especially. Great service and amazing hospitality from Rachel. Was so good, we repeated whole thing again the following week, when our family came through. Highly recommended for anyone with a few hours to kill, as only a half hour, enjoyable drive from the airport.

“Great new addition to Antigua”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Had a wonderfully relaxed lunch at this picturesque beach restaurant. Rachel is a fabulous host and the food is delicious, fresh and simple. The ambience and general feel of the place is great and you can tell that someone really puts their heart into this place. Shame they're not open every day
