I dined here with my girlfriend in August 2016 during a ten day stay at Sugar Ridge, where the restaurant sits at the top of the hotel grounds. Service was warm and friendly and the food was okay although a little bland and portion sizes were small. This was disappointing as the menu read so well. The vast majority of... More

We were staying at sugar ridge so we dined at Carmichael's on our first night. The views are incredible, and the restaurant is classy and a nice setting. However as we were there off season, it was very quiet - there was just one other couple in there at 8pm. Some music would have made things more atmospheric. We had... More

We decided to have dinner at Carmichael's last night since it was our last night in Antigua. The views are great as everyone has indicated and the reception and service throughout the meal superb. The staff are very eager to please to ensure the dining experience is pleasant and memorable. The setting is excellent for a special occasion or intimate... More

Even better than last time. As we were staying at Sugar Ridge we ate at Carmichaels a few nights. The food was again very good, my other half who is vegetarian was very well catered for and the chef would let her create her own dish by picking and choosing from various bits and pieces from the menu. A few... More

After reading some advertisements about this restaurant in the local tour guides, i was expecting an elegant dining experience. The views are fantastic, but don't expect air conditioning! It's open air which, yes, can be enjoyable as long as that's what you're expecting. Wish the restaurant offered an air conditioned option which would have allowed us to enjoy our dining... More

high end fine dining in a great location. Classy service, great menu and wine list, every course was delightful. Recommend this for a romantic, special occasion dinner for couples or small groups.

My husband and I visited here for our wedding anniversary. It was our first time. We arrived at reception at sugar edge and were driven up to the restaurant with another couple. When we arrived we were shown to our table. We were given the menu and wine and cocktail list. We were brought water straight away. We decided to... More

Though staying at Sugar Ridge, I didn't dine at Carmichael until my last night. Though the night started with a couple of hiccups, the staff did their utmost best to turn it around and indeed they did. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant. Yes, for the view, as many have stated. (I'd suggest coming early tonight to catch the... More

If you want to experience fantastic food in a setting to die for then Carmichaels is a must. Situated at the top of the lovely Sugar Ridge resort this is by far the best food we have had since arriving in Antigua and we have been really spoilt. We starting the evening off in the bar area where the lovely... More

Wow, what a spot. High up on a high overlooking the entire bay area and Jolly Harbor area. The views are stunning and the sunset was so amazing. This is a very high end restaurant but worth every penny. My husband had the Beef Wellington and I had a seafood pasta.
