We thought it was ok. Food just a bit lacking. Conch fritters were very doughy and not much conch. Pork was a bit tough but curry good. Have to say staff really good and that's why a 4 rather than a 3.

Spent a day in Antigua while on a cruise. Came across this place by chance but delighted with our find. Had a really tasty lunch of seafood pasta and my wife a super garlic shrimp with chips (fries) and salad. All cooked fresh.

While visiting the Island my wife and I stopped here for lunch. The people were friendly and the establishment was exceeding clean, including the kitchen which you could look into. Service was fine and the food was excellent.

Nice restaurant right outside the Heritage Quay. We were very well received and the food was really good. Probably one of the best options in the area. Just outside you can then find the best ice cream place in town with amazing Italian gelato.

We were looking for a place to try the local food before the ship ships and found this place up the stairs. The owner's wife who runs the restaurant is also a Canadian originally from Toronto so it was great to hear her story!

Far from it! There's a set of very steep, long wooden steps which lead to the restaurant off the road. Very tricky.

Good Evening, If you're coming off the cruise ships, just keep walking straight as you're entering Heritage Quay, which is the Duty-Free outdoor mall, and keep walking till you're leaving the Duty-Free mall. It's... More
