I've eaten here several times over the last two years and have not been disappointed. The fish, particularly the salmon, has been excellent. The pasta also was homemade and delicious. And the wines were great. The service is extremely warm and attentive, and it is a romantic and relaxed vibe. It is a splurge, but worth it.

French bistro with tons of charm. A variety of mouth-watering food choices make this a special place for all who dine there. The dijonnaise steak was tasty and tender. A variety of drinks offered. Good for couples or families. A little pricey but well worth it!

Cafe Cinq attends to details. Each dish is prepared with attention to every aspect of the food experience: from texture, delicate combination of discreet and unique seasonings, and highest quality ingredients, to the inviting atmosphere. One of the best in any town anywhere.

A good treat and has a great wine list. Draw on the table cloths while you wait for your fantastic food and if it 's good enough it may make it to the wall which is decorated with artist of previous tables. Very professional, attentive staff, upper class menu which the price reflects but sometimes you just want a great... More

One of the best restaurants I've ever been to! So happy to have found this gem in Antigua. The beet salad and mussels are a must.

Probably our favourite restaurant in Antigua; we were dining there when a 5.5 earthquake came along. The metal frames holding 100 candles was swaying back and forth. Another memorable evening. The Hot Beet Salad always my appetizer.

This restaurant was highly recommended by the staff at our hotel, so we tried it for our last night in Antigua. The room is warm and inviting, and feels very French. Unlike most restaurants in Antigua, the server was not very friendly and disappeared for long periods of time, even though the restaurant was mostly empty (it was early in... More

We were recommended this restaurant, but sadly it was very disappointing. The menu was not well balanced and very little in the way of a vegetarian option. The bread they served was stale and inedible, the main course was uninspiring. We thought the dessert may be more exciting, so ordered two creme brûlée, only to be told they were not... More
