It is an open restaurant. Good food - especially their breakfast and day long menu is tasty and good value for money. avery good views......but the mosquitoes and the heat take away from the overall experience.

My husband and I lived in Antigua for several months, so we got to know many of the local restaurants. This was our favorite for breakfast, mostly because of the gorgeous view of the bay. We also loved watching the little yellow-breasted birds (bananquits). The breakfast items are fairly standard, but they do offer a local breakfast (fish) and also an full English breakfast (very filling). I always ordered a side of plantains (yum!). The wait staff is reserved but sweet, and the atmosphere is unrushed and relaxing. I'm not a fan of this restaurant after dark, as you miss the great views and other restaurants have better dinner food.

Nicely located on a patio, with no real views but it was quiet. Very good scallop appetizer. My seafood sampler, supposedly a specialty, was anice piece of fish, two small shrimp and half of an over-grilled lobster. Dried out, some garlic butter could've saved it but it was served plain.

My husband and I ate here on our first night in Antigua. It was very close to our condo at Dickenson Bay Cottages. We are early diners and had the place to ourselves for about an hour. The wait staff was very friendly and took some time to chat with us. It was too dark to see the view unfortunately. We both enjoyed our dinner choices. I had the blackened mahi, which was crisp and tastey. It was served with a mix of some roasted vegetables which were quite good. I would have liked more fish on my plate since it was so good. My husband had the mixed grilled seafood. The lobster in this dish was superb. Overall this was an enjoyable dining experience.

My wife and I took a party of 10 for lunch to celebrate her birthday, having pre-booked a long table, which was laid up and in exactly the requested spot on arrival. Having been many times on previous visits to Antigua we knew the view of Dickenson Bay is spectacular. We were courteously received, our varied orders for drink and food taken efficiently, and then extremely well served without further queries as to who had order what. Everyone was complimentary about their individual dishes, and a mini birthday cake arrived unexpectedly at the end of the meal.
Service and food quality much improved compared to our previous times at The Bay House. Thoroughly recommended.
