We were in Antigua for a month and Melini's was our favourite restaurant. Adrian and Mark the owners were fantastic and looked after our family every time we visited (4 times). Our children (11&8) were given every accommodation: smaller portions, special 'mocktails' and great friendliness. As well behaved as they are, our boys don't always get this. The menu is... More

A fairly extensive menu plus a special board. Yes sometimes takes a while for food to be served but always good. On occasions a few problems but owners Mark and Adrian will take off the service charge if there is a problem. Very good portions so will not go hungry but also will serve half portions on request for pasta... More

The staff here are really genuinely nice people and we always have a nice experience here... whether it's a morning coffee, a beer or lunch/dinner.

Food was good - portion was limited. You felt hungry after you left. The restaurants in Antigua aren't the cheapest. Between a 10% government tax and a 15% gratuity before you even start your meal!! Service was excellent overall portions were limited.

Had a fantastic meal here while we were in Antigua. We loved the little town of Jolly Harbour and visited a lot of the restaurants while we were here. They have a nice variety to choose from.

Food was good, bread was excellent! Staff friendly and courteous except the boss , probably a smoker himself as he has no clue on how disgusting it is for non-smokers to eat down wind of that filth. No provision made at all and all he had to do was ask and keep parties as far apart as possible. It's not... More

Family and I visited restaurant for dinner. The food was very good, service was generally prompt, and attention to our needs was adequate. Female wait staff was strictly business..no small talk. Off season...so not very busy. Overlooks Jolly Harbour for ambiance.
