Beautiful food with the stunning backdrop of the setting sun over the beach. My family visited last summer while on holiday having been recommended by a family friend and we were very impressed. Although a little expensive everything we had was exquisite. The owner and...staff made us feel very welcomed and we enjoyed it so much we made a reservation for 3 nights later (while we were still eating our food!). Definitely recommend here (especially during sunset)!!More

We traveled all the island and Lance and the team at Jacqui O made the visit great. Awesome place located on the beach. so much so we most have returned for lunch 8 or more times easy. Super Welcoming. Try the Passion fruit mojito if...made by either of the two great mixologists, it is the best i promise. Chef Juan and the kitchen team made amazing lunches, and specials were new and fresh ideas, and the adored. Our Daughter loved it there as you can play on the beach, and always got prepared lunch and drinks early, a great extra which not many restaurants in the world understand that need with a toddler at a dinner table. We always left wanting to return for the food and service. Best place on the island with great views of the beach and sea.More

We literally stumbled on this gem of a beach bar and restaurant when taking a short walk along the beach from our resort. It’s a very beautiful spot and the restaurant sits perfectly into its surroundings. We went back for dinner the same day and...the food is amazing. The clams and tomato bread are out of this world and the local clams are huge! The mains were equally delicious. Service and drinks were also great and we even got a lift back from the owner!! Put simply, if you’re in Antigua; you need to visit Jackie O’s. Thanks for a great night!More

Jaqui O’s has been one of our go to beach restaurants on the Island for many many years and to put it simply - it never disappoints! Lance his team always go above and beyond to deliver gold standard customer service, they are super attentive...and take care of you and your party with the utmost attention to detail. Not to mention, the setting is beautiful, the love beach is picturesque and the sun loungers are perfect for relaxing with cocktails in hand. Now as for the food - calling it exceptional would be modest! All the dishes on the menu are fresh and seasonal and utterly delicious, we especially enjoyed the Mahi Mahi, specially caught tuna steak and the crab salad - for afters, the mango tiramisu is beyond heavenly! Once again, we had a wonderful day, made very special by the high quality food, drinks and brilliant service. 10/10.More

We had the opportunity to visit this beautiful restaurant today. Lance and his team instantly made us feel Welcome. The smoothies were amazing,. We have been here a week now, and I can honestly say our meal today was by far the best we have...had. Wonderful flavours and presentation. Deserts to die for! Excellent menu.

We found this almost by accident; a very lucky accident! The location is spectacular - right on a beautiful, tranquil beach. Lance, the owner, is a great host and his staff are, without exception, friendly, attentive and charming. Having stopped only for a quick drink,...we decided to stay for lunch. A great decision! The food is, without doubt, absolutely delicious. Our “quick drink” morphed into an idyllic afternoon - and we’ve already booked in for tomorrow! Definitely NOT one to be missed.More

Fantastic food. The food Chef Juan prepares is significantly higher standard than any other restaurant we found whilst on the island. A number of the other so called top restaurants on the island seem to focus on the spectacular locations at the expense of the...food. This place is all about the food. The clams in white wine, garlic and parsley were amazing but you have to pair them with the tomato bread. I also had a superb snapper dish grilled with fresh herbs and the chefs signature ratatouille.More

On our most recent trip to Antigua we decided to rent an AirBnb in Jolly Harbour rather than go down the all inclusive route. While Jolly Beach is gorgeous, there’s not much to do there during the day. A local recommended we should checkout Jacqui...O’s so we made a lunch reservation via WhatsApps (advised) for the next day. We arrived at 12 and rented one of the very comfortable beach beds in front of the restaurant. The beach is really quiet and beautiful so we ordered a cocktail and had a swim while we waited. At 1.30 we had a very nice lunch in the pretty restaurant. Lance, the owner, explained all the specials to us and was always on hand to make sure we were enjoying our afternoon. After lunch we returned to our sun-beds and had a couple of more drinks until the sun went down. Overall we really enjoyed our afternoon at Jacqui O’s. While there is lots to do and explore in Antigua, Jacqui O’s is a great option if you just want to relax and have some very good food on a beautiful beach. Lance also has one of the better wine menus on the island so it’s a good option if you have something to celebrate and feel like popping a bottle of champagne.More

My wife and I arrived at midday and enjoyed some fantastic cocktails on the beach sunbeds. The rum punch was quite something! Lunch was pretty spectacular by all accounts, Lance was a great host and he has assembled a really great team. The staff were...all lovely - the starter of clams my wife and I both had was exceptional and the mains of red snapper and tuna were next level, the most tasty fish dishes I can remember having. The mango tiramasu was similarly magical. We are planning a 2nd visit before we leave!More

We sat at a bench (not on the round beds some of which which looked rather dilapidated) we had 2 Wadadli beers which were beautifully cold and the waitress was chatty and nice. That was the good bit however the bill was eyewatering for 4...small beers and the male owner was only interested in getting the money. No niceties. Next day we returned to the beautiful beach and had a sunbed & umbrella all day, snorkel & flippers, 2 soft drinks and 4 beers from the very friendly Trevor who used to play cricket for Northampton. It was only a teeny bit more than we were charged for the 4 beers at Jackie O's.More
