“Beyond Delicious!”
Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

Dinner last night at Hector's, which was just truly exceptional. Very small restaurant, which makes for intimate setting and you are kind of on top of your next guest. However, that is really no big deal. Just amazing food (portobello mushroom, surf and turf, tomato salad), and friendly, great service. 5 star service deserved and earned.

“Excellent food, poor service”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

Delicious food! Would have given five circles if not for the non-existent service. When I told a local how much we enjoyed the meal, he thought the new owner had even brought up the quality of the food since taking over. There was ONE waitress for the whole tiny, packed restaurant that night. She gave bread to everyone but us and only came by to pick up our dishes and present the bill. She spilled a glass of liquid on the floor and left it there at least ten minutes before we had to step over the puddle to leave. A good reason restaurants should not add an automatic tip to bills.

“Top restaurant in Antigua”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

This is a very small place, but it is hopping with energy and fabulous, creative food. We had the open face tenderloin steak sandwich and the duck...out of this world!

“Deserves the good reviews”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

We dined here our first night in town. The restaurant is so tiny - we had a table by the door and quickly moved inside as a table became available.
The seervice is excellent - your chefs are only a few feet away and the food they prepare in such a small kitchen is amazing.

“Must dine here”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

The delicious dinner we had lived up to the reputation! It is very small, so it's probably best to get there around 6:30 or later in the evening (~8:00) for a second seating. The beef tenderloin was a delicious piece of meat cooked perfectly with nice accompaniments - I would highly recommend it!
