We visited this bar every evening during our stay at Jolly Harbour. It has a great atmosphere and the owners and staff are wonderful. Everyone makes you feel like a local. The staff always had a smile on their faces with a special mention to Daisy who never seemed to stop smiling. The owners take a genuine interest and are... More

As third time visitors to Jolly Harbour we were delighted with the new and improved Castaways. Situated in a prime spot on Antigua's beautiful Jolly Beach, this previously bog standard cafe has in recent months morphed into a stylish restaurant and bar, complete with Buddha statues and - when we visited - cool chill-out music from London DJ Mikey C....

We initially came to Castways for the Friday night beach fire BBQ night and so good it was that we're coming back again this Friday as we were well impressed by the Indian tikkas which were super fresh, moist and very, very tasty. Castaways is undergoing something of rebirth this season with a revamp of the bar area allowing the... More

Food was delicious and options were plentiful. I recommend the Beef sandwich, it was crazy good! 3. People were friendly, professional and attentive. 4. Owner stopped by to make... More

Last night, we had a memorable experience at Castaways in Jolly Harbour. I will explain, but first I must set the context. It starts with the Jolly Harbour grocery store and bus stop, which are a little more than a kilometer from our rental villa. Pedestrians commonly walk along the edge of the narrow road that connect both ends. Some... More

Castaways is a must if you go to Antigua. The food is fantastic, the staff are super friendly and the atmosphere is great. It is set right on the beach at Jolly Harbour, so the location is perfect especially to watch the sunset.

This place used to be a very cool beach bar/ restaurant,,,,now beach bar is gone and its Budha central.. food took for ever and was incredibly expensive. I guess things change but what a shame to take away the beachy cool atmosphere that was there and make it cold and out of place.

You probably have to go in the evening to appreciate the grilled food, the music and the sunsets - relaxed, convivial atmosphere in the daytime

Castaways_Antigua, Guest Relations Manager at Castaways, responded to this review

Hi Mister J, Castaways Antigua has an atmosphere for everyone. Relax on one of our beach chairs with your toes in the sand and sip on a frozen cocktail by day or sing and groove after dinner to one of our live bands by night. We hope you found what you were looking for when you visited with us. Thank... More
