Good food enjoyed again here. Large parties are not a problem the only downside is on party nights if your staying locally and not one to party till 3am the music is rather loud! Food is Excellent and a very friendly enthusiastic welcome to all

As usual, Paulo creates a wonderful atmosphere for a fabulous Italian dinner. Cannelloni is crowd pleaser but everything is great too

Spent a week in Antigua recently where we ate out at a number of restaurants and can easily say this was my favourite. The food was excellent and the service very good. So good, we went twice!
