Given the current restrictions service was good, friendly and the place had a nice atmosphere. Covid protocols in place so felt relaxed to enjoy a pleasant evening

Four of us ate at Trappas three times in a week - the menu is varied and of excellent quality and I don't think anyone had the same thing twice - not because it wasn't good but because there is so much to tempt you....Good pricing system too - 30EC for any entree and 60EC for any main. Highly recommend.More

On our third trip to Antigua and staying in English Harbour, we visited Trappas a few times during our fortnight, twice for food and a couple of times just for drinks. The reviews where people complain about 'slow service' are really missing the point. This...is the Caribbean and, more specifically Antigua. You are on 'island time' and are eating (and drinking) somewhere where the food is freshly prepared, sourced and cooked. We sat out at the front for drinks and also for our final meal there and watched the guys in the kitchen working their hearts out. The seas had been rough one day (when we were just having drinks) and consequently, there was no 'catch of the day' because it is exactly that...not frozen or transported halfway round the continent and given a grand title. The owner, Caroline, was present a couple of times when we were there and was lovely, passionate about her business and took the time (even though she was busy) to have a chat with us. Shannon, who serves at the front of the restaurant (amazing specs) is lovely, friendly and fun. Jason behind the bar makes the BEST Old Fashioned rum Dark and Stormy ever - he showed us his 'recipe' - they certainly pack a punch. On the evening we ate inside, we were served by Michelle. She was really busy, but when asked for advice about my potential choice of starters, steered me to something else that she recommended and thought I might prefer and she was absolutely right. The 'maitre d', a lovely guy with a beard and ponytail and some fabulous bright shirts was also so lovely and helpful. I think maybe those few negative reviews on here say more about customers' unrealistic expectations than about the Trappas experience. Don't expect a meal at the speed you might get in UK eating establishments (where much of the food is pre-prepared, bought in, or mass-produced (and having had a daughter work in a couple of such establishments, I know that to be the case). Don't expect to be 'pandered to' without putting in a bit of effort yourself - I observed some customers treat those professionals working in Trappas with indifference and even rudeness, and those same people might expect a stream of smiles and constant undivided attention. Do expect a warm welcome, and a leisurely meal. Don't expect to be rushed through so they can 'turn tables'. Do ask for suggestions about menu choices - if you like a curry spicy - say so, or ask how hot it is - it will be a Caribbean curry - not an Asian one, they are different. This food is all freshly cooked and they can make reasonable adjustments. Do try the fresh catch ceviche - utterly delicious. The Tuna sashimi also unbelievably good. Do engage with the staff - they are knowledgeable, professional and happy to help and engage with the customers - Michelle was clearly slightly surprised but delighted to be asked for her advice about what I should order, but she was so right in her suggestion that when she came back to ask how the food was, I replied by giving her a hug. A couple of evenings later when we returned for just a drink as we were passing, she saw us at the front and came and gave me a hug, like an old friend. Wonderful! Do be prepared for the occasional power cut - yet another thing the island occasionally contends with, but don't worry - the restaurant's generator kicks in automatically, and the chefs just carry on as normal. Overall, this is a fabulous place. The people who work there care about what they do and they do it well. We can't wait to be back there.More

A few years ago I wrote a review saying that someone had taken there finger off the pulse at Trappas ..... but I’m happy to say it’s back to the Trappas we all used to enjoy . I’ve seen the owner back on the premises...and food is very good . Also thanks to the waitress who works the front of the restaurant ( outside ) great fun and super at her job ( sorry no name but she wears funky black glasses )More
