“delightful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

The couple that run this restaurant are absolutely charming and cant do enough for you.The staff are great fun and inter react in a hilarious fashion.The food is always delicious we go every time we go to Antigua.Last time we were there it was a little girls birthday and the proprietores played Happy Birthday by Stevie Wonder and the whole resraurant joined in,even Simon and Jasmine Le Bon who were on the next table! Not many people can say they were sung to by the main man from Duran Duran. This restaurant is a must if you go to Antigua and it hjas the added bonus of being right on the water front so you can watch the beautiful boats come and go .

“Fabulous Water Side lunches/dining at Catherines on Antigua”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We visited Catherine's many times during our stay- for the stunning waterfront location on English Harbour, the best lobster risotto we've ever tasted (all the food we tried was superb), an excellent french rose and the warmest of welcomes from Catherine, Guillaume and the girls. It is exceptional in every way- a must if you are on Antigua.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We always make a point of having lunch here on regular visits to Antigua and it never disappoints. The food and service is excellent, and the location exceptional - though the addition of bar next door does distract. Main surprise for a waterfront restaurant is that there are more meat dishes than fish on the menu.

“Wonderful location, pretty good food, INCREDIBLY slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Definitely worth a visit just for the location. The food itself was pretty good, but not overly memorable. We had 2 appetizers, 4 main dishes, and 2 desserts and nothing was either amazing or bad. The lunch did take about 3 hours though. While in part due to us relaxing, our waitress would disappear for long stretches of time (we noticed other tables looking around for their servers, as well). Should give it a try. We went for lunch.
