“good food and good staff”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Was in Antigua Jan 2013 and this place was the first place we had lunch. Got to say the food is amazing and the staff are very friendly. Only bad point is the stairs to get in. One of the best burgers i have ever had :-)

“Enjoyed our lunch at Hemingways”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Had rotis - both great. Nice view over the streets of John's and comfortable breeze. I liked the menus are there many items i wanted to try, something for everyone (except vegetarians....). A little pricey but the quality is there.

Nice art gallery on the lower floor too.

“Don't miss it!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

If you are in St. John's and are looking for a great place by the cruise dock for a meal or a drink, don't miss it!

The staff definitely operates on island time so if time is an issue, make sure you tell them right away that you are in a hurry.

“Lovely food and friendly staff”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Ideal for those in town for lunch or dinner. Great views of what's going on below and lovely friendly staff. Food is really good, love the coconut shrimp, curry, snails! They have a good variety and have some great specials too. Definitely worth a visit, even if its just for a cocktail or three!

“Still there after all these years!”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

We went to Hemingway's almost 20 years ago and stopped there again this year on our way to the cruise ship. Typical Caribbean bar, located above all the bustle, perfect for an island drink and to view all the street action below. Hasn't changed in all these years, so they must be doing something right. Keep doing it, Hemingway's! We'll be back!
