our first night at Dennis was on a Wednesday. A party of 4 of which 3 guest chose the grilled lobster and one the whole snapper. It was heaven....the taste was so unique: mix of herbs and spices topped of with wedges of freshly cut lemon. Dash of the home made hot sauce made the meal one to plan the next visit, which was sooner then we expected.
On the following Friday we visited Dennis again, this time for the assortment of BBQ items like jerk pork, jerk chicken, ribs, served with home made green and macaroni salad. It's uniqueness lies in the blend of the herbs and spices. The meat was so tender, literally melting in the mouth. flavorful and fresh! Amazing dining experience......one that will definitely take us back to the green café on top of the hill by Ffryes Beach!

We visited Dennis Bar on a Friday evening during our stay at Cocobay - we were recommended it by all the locals and are really glad we visited.
On a Friday night they have a DJ playing music and happy hour from 6pm, along with a barbecue menu.The staff are very friendly and the bar is in a lovely location above the beach - only a short walk along from Cocobay.
The food was very nice and tasty and very good value - same with the drinks. Lots of choice available too! We would have liked to eat there a second time however ran out of time during our stay. We would definitely recommend to anyone passing the area looking for a nice meal with local food.

We visited Dennis' three times during our ten days in Antigua, once for lunch and twice for dinner. The food was consistently good, portions are generous and the prices are reasonable (around $15-20 for a main). The ribs and creole chicken in particular come recommended.

Service was friendly, although we found Dennis to be a bit gruff. As with most of the island waiting time can be longer than you would expect back home. We travelled with three kids (aged 4-13) but the array of pets (Rex the cat and the dog and her puppies) kept them entertained. Well worth a detour off the main coast road for.

Called in to see Dennis last week, not seen him for 4 years, but still remembered us. He cooked us pork chops with all the trimmings. A great host, a great chef and wonderful views to make your meal something to remember

If you want to visit the bar with the best views in the Caribbean go to see the delightful Dennis. His fabulous bar looks out over both Cocos and Ffryes (now nicknamed Turtle Beach after we saw a giant turtle there). A great wedding party venue with two bars and a wedding platform with great views over the turquoise waters of Cocos Beach, hosted by the hard-working and excellent chap Dennis. Great cocktails, views and staff make this a "must visit" bar in Antigua, surely one of the safest holiday destinations in the West Indies.
