Jacala Beach Restaurant is my favorite restaurant on the island! I live in Anguilla for 22 years and am a frequent guest there. Food, staff and setting are perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant to everybody visiting. Make a reservation early because it's usually booked out for lunch and dinner.

Beautiful setting. We enjoyed dinner during sunset which was amazing with a nice glass of wine. For appetizer we ordered the tuna tartar which was delicious. Hubby ordered the chicken stuffed with lobster which he was not crazy about. However, we both agree that the crayfish was the best on the island. They were grilled perfectly, juicy and delicious.

My wife and I got married on Anguilla on Mead's Bay (Larimar Beach Resort), and as we were wandering down the road and back to the grocery store, we found this place a bit by accident. We went out again around 6:30pm, and just popped in for the heck of of to a nearly empty restaurant, to see if there... More

The delightful Jacques himself greeted us when we arrived for dinner and showed us to our table. The setting and ambience here is wonderful. We started with a delicious bottle of chilled red wine and a homemade assortment of bread, olive oil, and a variety of spices with which to season the oil. And a shot of chilled asparagus soup....

Will definitely be back!!! Food location and service was excellent, really enjoyed the dinner. Highly recommend the conch ceviche and the steak tartar, absolutely fantastic. Service was also really good and the owner Jaques was great, what a character... Thanks for a great evening, will be back.

We had dinner on our first night and our last night. As always wonderful food. The snapper in a cream sauce that Alan prepared as a special on out last night was the best dinner in our two weeks on Anguilla. I'm tempted to ask for the recipe ! We will be back in November !

The food at Jacala is very good, and the restaurant opens right out to the beach where there are lounge chairs for the patrons' use. Everyone in our party of six absolutely loved the apps and each of their lunch entrees. Afterward, while others went back out to the beach, a few of us had cappuccinos and shared the sampler...

We enjoyed dining at Jacala twice during our week long visit to Anguilla. The service is excellent and the food was delicious. The owner makes it a point to be an active presence in the restaurant and helps to make the experience even more enjoyable. There is a wonderful selection of French wines and local seafood. Highly recommend!
