“Great Lunch at Catherine's Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

By far one of the best restaurants in Antigua. Very friendly hosts and staff combined with wonderful food and ambiance.Located at Antigua Slipway with views of Nelson's Dockyard and the entrance to English Harbour. Wonderful to sit and eat drink the Minuty and watch the yachts sail by and view some of the fantastic mega yachts that are docked in the harbour. While we were there M/Y Leander was docked across from us and the owners came across on their tender for lunch.Wonderful !!!
Just a word, this is there last season in this location. However they will be in a new location for next season late October onwards. The new location sounds great by the way, again waterfront.

“Excellent meal, great location, friendly hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We returned to Catherine's Cafe for the first time in 3 years. Greeted like long lost friends. Excellent food - fresh Mahi Mahi always good, as is Salidou mouse. The Rosé 'Minuty' great value - perfect for a leisurely lunch.
Can't fault it!

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Hard to know what to say, really, other than this restaurant deserves a Michelin star. Quite exceptional in all respects.

“Don't miss at Nelson's Dockyard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

"This is a happy restaurant," my wife said. "Everybody is very happy here!"
We were strolling on the quay, gawking at the trophy yachts when we got to Catherine's and yes, every table seemed to be having a very good time. Catherine is in the middle of it all, going table to table with the menu on a chalkboard and plenty of Gallic charm.
Menu has the French bistro standards with generous helpings of Caribbean spiny lobster--lobster soup, lobster cakes, lobster salad. The soup was creamy and foamy with excellent flavor. Tartiflette is a little individual version of quiche with a layer of gratin potatoes beneath the eggs and bacon, again excellent. You see where I'm headed, lots of reasons to be happy at Catherine's.
Loved the tarte tatin, the true classic, crunchy puff pastry and warm apples topped with vanilla bean ice cream.
A big storm broke out while we were eating, torrential rain pounding the bay but by the time we were done the sun was back out and we headed for the beach. It's never bad for long around here it seems.
