Other reviewers pegged this well. The place is small, in a nothing neighborhood, shared tables with dirty tablecloths, limited service, and a more limited food offering (no menus or prices discussed unless you specifically ask the cost). The feature is seafood and fish, some of...More

The place was crowded with fairly basic, colourful decor but with a jolly atmosphere. Booking was definitely necessary. The food was very expensive for this area of Antigua. We paid 225 EC dollars for 2 courses and a glass of the house rum punch, which...More

Dear Sir, I’m so sorry about your comments but they are not reaching the truth. First of all the large crew came by there own accord and were not rich yacht owners but rather boatcrew with a budged. Furthermore most patrons of Papa Zouk are...More

We really enjoyed our visit. The house rum punch is very good. I had excellently grilled lobster, probably the best I have ever had. Great, friendly service. The entrance is not especially enticing, and most of the visitors were tourists when we were there. Very...More

The first thing to say is that the restaurant only takes cash so go prepared and take quite a bit as it is not cheap! Also it is not a big menu and not everything on the menu is there. That is not an issue...More

Went as part of a large group. Food was cold and over cooked could not complain about the quantity but the quality was certainly lacking. Very genial owner and good rum punch.

We still have two nights to go, but I think Papa Zouk's is the best we have had the first five nights. No menu - he sits down with you to discuss what he plans to serve. I have a shrimp allergy, and he adjusted...More

We try to eat a Papa Zouk whenever we are in Antigua (which is often) - it is such a wonderful little gem of a restaurant. It is not super smart and the menu is not huge, but the food is fabulous - always the...More

We seated in this “restaurant” in six persons..... I immediately noted that the hygiene all around was incredibly scarse...., the table cloth was probably been washed in June 2015 for the last time..... The owner arrived mentioning us the very few menu options, no written...More

This was our second time at Papa Zouk and we'll go back any time we're in Antigua. The service is very personal and friendly. The bouillabaisse is SO tasty. The lobster/seafood combo is creamy and delicious and my husband's snapper was some of the best...More

Yes you can get vegetarian food as I ate there with a vegetarian friend. One word of warning, they only accept cash for payment.
