While my wife and I are foodies, we don't like "fancy food" that has more sauce than substance so we were reluctant to try this French restaurant - despite the rave reviews. It was the best meal we had on the island - and that's really saying something since each meal was better than the next. I had the best... More

While service was slow the burger was well worth the wait. The restaurant was busy even late in the afternoon so be prepared for slower service. Also, the bathrooms were out of commission on the day we were there. Seems to be a common issue on Anguilla. I would definitely place this restaurant on a redo list and plan to... More

We were in Anguilla for a week and dined at many restaurants, Jacala definitely the best! We had heard about it last minute and did not have reservation but fortunately since we were on the early side, 5:45ish, the owner made room for us. They only have one seating per night and only 10 or so tables so we felt... More

When looking for alternate to blanchards beach shack we loved coming here. Great views and fun vibe . Felt like St. Tropez. The ribs are amazing as well as lobster club.

This is the best restaurant on the island. You need a reservation. Jacque and Alain the owners get to know you. I never order. They know what to bring. Very hard to get in and I am considered family and they let me starve. Prices are moderate but food always a 10

As per some of the other reviews, the owner is unacceptably rude and clearly does not appreciate your American patronage. We had a 1pm lunch reservation and were seated before 3-4 other tables. The owner was insulting from the start when I asked if the soup was a large or small portion. Instead of simply answering my question, he arrogantly... More

I have been to Anguilla many times and this was my first Jacala experience. WOW!!!! Absolutely incredible meal. We will definitely go back to Jacala. Two in my party had the snapper. prepared two different ways, we couldn't decide which one we liked better. The lobster is spectacular as well. Dreaming of my next meal there!

Anguilla is my favorite Caribbean Island for restaurants. I give many of these restaurants 5 stars (which I am usually stingy with). Of all of these wonderful places Jacala is my favorite, without question. It really is about as good as it gets. The owner takes all of the orders and does a great job recommending and explaining the dishes.... More

A handful of people raved about Jacala to us so we couldn't wait to try it out for ourselves. They were spot on - the food here is absolutely delicious. The quality of the food is a 10. We shared pasta for appetizer, my boyfriend had the filet mignon which was cooked perfectly and I had mahi mahi with bok... More
