“Superb High End Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

There are a handful of fining dining restaurants in Antigua but
this is the only one that we give 5 starts to.

Everything is perfect from the moment you walk in.

The beautiful building and decor is striking.

From the starters to the main dishes and then desserts
everything is a taste sensation. Perfectly prepared food.
Fantastic service and good value for a fine dining experience.

“Gem with great chef in Antigua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Superb modern cuisine utilising fabulously tasty local produce served up by inspirational chef Titi Bruderer & team. Ground floor restaurant opening onto courtyard with fountain or alternative roof terrace where the log fire maintains the warmth after the sun goes down.

“Great meal! Best food in Antigua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

My wife is fully vegeterian so we ordered the Aubergine Napoleon, the Artichoke gratinee and the gnocci with a sauce gorgonzola. It was all exquiste! Hands down best food we had in Antigua.

Ask for the lamb and the desert sampler. Call the chef, she is very friendly and capable.
