Description: Beautifully nestled in the heart of Historic Redcliffe Quay in St. John's, Cafe Napoleon was formerly an old sugar warehouse by a busy dockside. Sympathetically renovated, the restaurant serves a cosmopolitan menu using the finest fresh, local fish, meat, vegetables & fruits. The homemade desserts are just mouthwatering! Dont want to eat, then just chill with a Cocktail in the new Lounge Bar looking out at the beuatiful gardens and watersedge. You can be certain of the warmest of welcomes and excellent customer service from owner, Lisa and her team.

We sent our teenage boys here for a cold drink while we shopped at a nearby store during a day trip to Saint John's. When we arrived to meet them, they were enjoying a drink at the counter and chatting with the owner (?) as though they had known her for years. We were extremely impressed with the friendly service and enjoyed the lattes and ice crushes. The strawberry crush is delicious! We did not eat while we were there, but would definitely return for lunch if we are in Antigua again.

Fusion of Antiguan and standard American/European flavours.
Had the lunch specials and while the food was good it wasn't outstanding nor very authentic which was disappointing since we did order an Antiguan plate. Fish cakes were a little gluey and seemed a little lacking in fish pieces but overall flavour was ok. Pork skewers were also decent. Plantains were nice. Casava fries were crisp but my friend felt they were a little bitter (I didn't taste any bitterness myself).
Staff were pleasant.

On our recent trip to Antigua we used this restaurant for lunch on several occasions. The menu is varied with good quality freshly cooked food. There is something there for everyone at reasonable cost. Good wine list again at good prices. The service is excellent so overall a place to be recommended and we will definitely use again on our next trip.

We stopped here for a nice cool drink whilst shopping in St Johns. The staff were really friendly and we enjoyed a nice chat with them.The drinks we had were very reasonably priced and my son especially enjoyed his lime crush! We visited as a family, and my husband went back a few days later as he had some time to kill before going back to our resort and said the 2nd visit was as good as the first! Thank you for making us feel so welcome!

The menu and personal attention you get here will take you back to the days of Mom & Pop style eateries. One place you can get your johnny-cake/bakes/fried dumplings. Also, I thought it was interesting how you get a little bit of everything, all in an outdoor dining area
