“Good food”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

Went here last week while staying at Tranquility Bay! The food was good and the closest to authentic Antiguan food as you're going to get near the resort. Yes there are bugs yes there were cats and yes there were dogs but the food was banging. The problem is that since it has to cater to customers from other parts of the world they can't make jerk chicken the way it should be with bones in it. Every bit of food we ate was great. The owner Wes even offered to take my family to find bread and cheese. A little pricey but good.

“Hoped it would be more authentic !”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

On arriving at what seemed a little yellow cabin we were excited by the overall look. Service in the Caribbean is laid back but only one type of red wine was a little disappointing. Once we had settled on our food selection it was relaxing apart from the scurry of cats who roam searching for food. It does put you off a little but we thought what the hell ! The starter of bread and homemade salsa was to die for quite literally! The mains came along at a leisurely pace but we found it a little disconcerting that the old plates and glasses were left on the table. When the food arrived my wife's was awesome being a seafood dish with rice! Mine was the homemade beef burger with lots of herbs in it and very tasty. Unfortunately the accompaniment was macaroni pie which was stodgy and not particularly good. I was also a little disappointed that there was no Caribbean music but British and American records from the 70s and 80s.
What would improve the charm of the place is to play local music ,get rid of the cats and possibly some wine alternatives. Food quality is a matter of taste so that could just be my own opinion on a part which could have been better. Price was excellent and consider it good value for money.

“A real gem in Jolly Harbour area!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Checked our Miracles on our recent trip to Antigua after reading the reviews here. We were not disappointed! The lobster special was wonderful (and a really good value) and the macaroni pie was to die for; very pleasant and attentive service as well. Our first experience was dining on the porch at the restaurant with our party of nine (4 adults and 5 kids), and we all enjoyed it very much. After experiencing the food that night, we ended up stopping in for take-out two more times during our stay. Even having a rum punch at the bar while we ordered and waited for our take-out food was pleasant. We'll be back next time we stay in Jolly Harbour.
