Wanting to visit Barrel Stay as it was a favorite years ago proved a good choice. We had a martini each. Their famous fish soup was almost as I remembered. Added to that I had a simple Caesar salad and one homemade lobster ravioli. My husband had the soup as well and an entree plus a shared dessert. Price $190... More

The food was very good. The owners of the restaurant are very nice. The fact you can have your mean while enjoying the ocean view makes it very pleasant. However, it is more on the expensive side.

Reading the reviews, you either loved it or hated it. We didn't love it. Aside from Jill, the owner I suppose, the waitstaff seemed rude and untrained. The food was fiercely expensive and the portions were small. They even charged me an extra $5 to refill my diet coke which was served in an 12 oz glass full of ice.... More

The food was great but the personalities of the owners is what makes this place a gem! They were very friendly and accommodating. Everything was great!

Barrel Stay came highly recommended by friends that frequent the island often. We were delighted by the hostess/owner, Jill. She was a lot of fun and had us laughing more than once. Her restaurant is very warm, island-beachy. There are beautiful sailboats anchored in the water, the restaurant sits right on the beach. It was exactly what we were looking... More

Jill's welcome from the first made for a great evening and the food was more refined and very different than other places in Sandy Ground. While it is on the on the beach this is a place for fine dining with beautiful presentation.Service is also very good.... More

A wonderful dining experience with the beautiful, charming hostess Jill. The food is absolutely delicious and the open air ambiance is a special treat for a dinner on the beach. A must when visiting ANguilla.

Practically on the beach itself, the food was great with the only drawback was not the food, but rather the need for bug repellent as the sand flys were merciless.

On our final night in Anguilla we went to Barrel Stay for an exquisite dinner. Their specials @ $34 are a very good deal. The food is cooked to perfection, the dinner had a great mix of flavours and was carefully crafted in its presentation. There is a lovely view of Road Bay and you are sure to see a... More

This is one of our favorite beach front restaurants in Sandy Ground. Owner/Hostess Jill is amazing. You will love her theatrical presentation of the specials. My husband and I shared the special shrimp tempura appetizer, which was crunchy and so delicious. Husband had the pork tenderloin. I loved the mahi special in red Thai sauce with stir fried veggies and... More
