We had the lunch special, which included a drink and main. It was a good value for what we got. The food was okay but not amazing. Wouldn’t mind returning but not before some other places we tried in Antigua.

Pricey but good food. Waiter tried to charge my friends the whole bill even though I had already paid my part of the bill. I also dont like it when they add the tip without mentioning it beforehand.

Great food, beautiful location right by the church and cozy ambience inside. Service was great, got our food right away, surf and turf was worth it. Moderately inexpensive compared to the things we ordered.

I love Hectors...it is a small but delicious place to get a meal. By far the best item on their menu is their steak sandwich and fries. If you have one choice try this. They serve it with homemade ketchup but they also offer Heinz...More
