Jacala is so wonderful L. After a beautiful day in Anguilla ( especially Cap Jalucca ) there is no better restaurant. The atmosphere and food is perfect . Order anything that the owner suggests along with the wine pairing. You will not be disappointed ....More

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...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!

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.

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 made reservations three weeks ago via our hotel and were just informed "Sundays will no longer be available" as of the exact date we are there!

We ended up going for lunch and it was great!
I would love to see your menu online but unfortunately this is not available unless I log into Facebook. I have no interest in joining facebook so you will probably lose my business while we are in Anguilla.
