On an island featuring many very fine restaurants, Jacala stands out as certainly one of the best. The combination of excellent cuisine & drop dead gorgeous location make for a very special experience. Our group of 8 enjoyed a relaxing day on the extraordinary Meads Bay beach followed by a delicious & leisurely Sunday lunch. The menu has a good... More

Perfect spot for our first night's dinner and loved the fact that it was an easy and fun walk down the beach from the Frangipani on a gorgeous evening. Once we got to the restaurant it was kind of strange people (and I mean other diners) staring at us coming up from the beach when we put our shoes back... More

Jacala is one of the best restaurants on the island. The setting on Meads is stunning, a great place to watch the sunset. The service is spot on...but the food is the standout. We started with the tuna tartare and conch ceviche and both were outstanding. For dinner I has the mahi-mahi special which was perfect in every way. My... More

Second Trip to Anguilla, had to return to Jacala. Wonderful place to eat. Bring appetite and wallet! Lamb was perfect. Each part of my dinner was better than I expected! Do NOT MISS Jacala! Make a reservation before you get to the island!

I'd heard about Jacala for years! After reading reviews about the owner and how difficult it was to get a table, this made the adventure that much more exciting. We didn't have a reservation and were able to get a table. The owner was a character, he made the experience memorable. Jacala is one of best spots on the island.... More

We just had the most wonderful dinner at Jacala! It was even better than I had imagined. Jacques was charming and Alain came out briefly from the kitchen to say hello as we know an old friend of theirs FIRST THING when we got there! The cucumber soup with a dash of tomato sorbet was incredible. So simple but so... More

Food delicious, more of adult setting and experience. Our children dined with us at every fine dining restaurant in Anguilla, we felt the menu and atmosphere at Jacala were not as inviting for children. A nice evening overall.

Excellent as always. One of our favorite restaurants for fine dining in evening. Wonderful place to go see sunset. They are now open for lunch but we haven't gone for lunch

Best food, service and atmosphere on the Island. The owner goes table to table to explain the menu and make sure every customer is happy. He is engaging and charismatic. The lobster was incredible. Every aspect of the meal and service is done superbly. A+

We walked down the beach on a very hot afternoon in pursuit of lunch at Jacalas. We were very hot and sandy upon our arrival, and the staff was wonderful. They immediately came over and seated us at a shady table on the veranda with a beautiful ocean view. They came with cold bottles of water and menus and asked... More
