Fabulous place. Visited for lunch twice. Excellent ambiance and wonderful staff. Pricy, but you get what you pay for. On a lovely beach with beautiful views. Would definitely visit again!

OVERALL I booked by watsapping Lance which made life very easy. On arrival we were greeted with warm smiles and made to feel at home immediately. Excellent covid precautions were in place. The view was breathtaking, we were the only people in sight it was...like a private beach. The beach beds were a highlight of my trip. FOOD AND DRINK The rum punch was sublime, I forgot to get the recipe, I must fly back to get it. The food was brilliant, the pineapple gazpacho was a particular highlight. Inventive, refreshing and delicious. The perfect refresher on a hot day. We shared two fish dishes, grouper and Mahi Mahi. Both very different and flavourful. Cooked brilliantly with delightful touches like light and crispy plantain crisps, not oily at all. The wine list, is fantastic. I work in wine and I often avoid wine in areas where it is being imported, we are fortunate in the UK being closer to the great wine countries of Europe so it is often an unnecessary expense when rum is so delicious and much cheaper. That being said, I wanted to lower my alcohol intake since we were planning to stay for the day so I opted for the house white and sparkling water to make spritzers and I have to say the French Chardonnay was so delicious I couldn't bring myself to do it. Excellent price, delicious. I know it won't be everyone's cup of tea, but if it is do not hesitate! The rose, pale, provencal and perfect. THE SERVICE From start to finish was charming, smooth, un-invasive and personal. The perfect blend of informality without sloppiness. My only regret was not being able to go again. Yes the prices are high, but they are worth it. If you can go, do. It may not be your everyday meal but it will be a memorable one. It really is worth it, even if it is for the view alone. The sand is soft and the sea a beautiful turquoise, the sea has the perfect temperament for swimming. I wish you the very best Lance, thank you for being part of our happy Antigua memories. My final point, is the water foot baths to clean the sand off before entering.... why do more people not do this? It makes your experience so much more enjoyable.More

We went here twice in March just before things shut down and absolutely loved it. The food is very good, the location is amazing, and the staff and owner are lovely people. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Went to Jacqui o’s for a Sunday lunch. The food was fantastic, the service from the waiting staff excellent and Lance was an great host from start to finish. We started with the open ravioli special which was very good, moved onto the Mahi mahi...and the New York strip which again was excellent, Caribbean not renowned for its meat quality in general, so it was a nice treat to get really good quality meat. Surprisingly, the highlight for me was the mango tiramisu which was extremely good. My partner got the cinnamon chocolate pudding which again was very tasty. We are not big wine drinkers at all but do recognise good wines when we see them on the menu due to our line of work and the wine list looked exceptional, and all hand chosen by a very proud owner who seems to ensure his clients have only the best in all departments. When there were no taxis available due to the torrential downpours that were intermittent through our lunch, Lance very kindly drove us back to the resort we were staying in. We will be sure to come back on our next visit to Antigua and it’s a must for all!More

Always on our list when visiting Antigua and should be on everyone else’s. If anything it’s got better! As always a warm welcome from Lance and exceptional service from the team. Relaxed and never intrusive but perfectly timed with engaging personality when required. Take the...bed on the beach and watch the boats bobbing out front while sipping on something fizzy, then be seated for a wonderful lunch. The local clams and the parrot fish were exceptional. Back in April and I will be going twice, an essential island booking!More

Nice review and much appreciated in these difficult times. Now the dining room has just half the normal amount of tables I have more chance to get around to meet the guest, a silver lining in the cover cloud. See you in the new year...More

We visited Jackie O’s the day after re-opening from lockdown. We had a warm welcome from Lance, the owner. Lovely laid back beach club vibe with super cocktails. Food was excellent. I started with Pineapple Gazpacho which was a first for me, followed by a...whole Snapper and hubby had Chicken Masala. Food was great. Staff were very attentive . We had a lovely walk along Love beach following lunch which is a truly spectacular beach.More

We celebrated my brother’s 21st Birthday with Lance and his team at Jacqui O’s. As always the hospitality was second to none and the food absolutely impeccable. So much so that my family and I indulged ourselves with two appetisers each (Vegetarian rolls and fresh...Clams), followed by Mahi Mahi and then a Chocolate fondant. All of which was accompanied by a variety of delicious cocktails and champagne. There really is no finer nor more authentic restaurant in Antigua than Jacqui O’s, and any guest would be fortunate to experience the sumptuous cuisine first hand. Thank you Lance & Jacqui’ O’s for making the birthday evening so memorable and for the very naughty shots throughout! Looking forward to dining with you all again soon!More

We were traveling the Caribbeans during a record hurricane season and COVID. Antigua was a beautiful oasis and then we discovered Jackie O's. Beyond the great food in a pristine location, Lance brings a dimension of soul to his restaurant. The connection he makes with...each guest, the adventure stories and history of Antigua and Montserrat, and his passion for everything he does. Lance, thank you for such a memorable experience and look forward to seeing you again soon.More

Called and made reservations with Lance the owner for 6 p.m. on the 22 nd of Sept. Lance personally greeted and seated us. He also went over the wine list and made a nice selection from Italy. Appetizers were amazing especially the Pineapple gazpacho and...the smoked Ahi tuna. Main courses of local pork tenderloin , with mango jerk sauce, Aged New York strip, fries and salad with mango dressing and finally Spaghetti with Prawns. All I can say is Lance, the food may have been some of the best we have experienced since we have been traveling. If you find yourself in Antigua, please call and visit Jacqui O's Beach House. I almost forgot the amazing beach and view.More
