Antigua Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Antigua

January 26, 2018 Osvaldo Hartline

Antigua has hundreds of beaches, from the bustling Pigeon Point to the kitesurfing paradise of Jabberwock Beach. It's fun to mix it up—a day spent in a secluded cove, another spent people-watching at a tourist magnet. When you’re tired of sun and sand you can shoot ‘em up at Reservoir Range, where archery and air pistols are a fun way to work out any lingering pre-vacation stress. A tour of the Antigua Distillery is a spirited way to experience a true taste of the island.

Melini's

Reviewed By Peter F - Sandwich, United Kingdom

We had another lively week in Antigua and eat again twice at Melini's although we were actually at the nearby all inclusive resort (we know as the penitentiary)!
Mark and Adrian did us proud yet again with remarkable, authentic Italian food and wine.
You have to go there.........go! You won't regret it!

Roti King

Reviewed By Steveb4569

Came into Antigua on a cruise ship and wandered the streets of St. John’s where upon I came upon this wonderful taste of the Caribbean. Being a Trinidadian and finding a roti shop was quite a find especially in Antigua. As I entered the business I was taken back by the menu; doubles, aloo pie and Rotis. I was in heaven. I ordered doubles and aloo pie along with a shrimp roti. Doubles were cooked perfectly; light bara and filled with curried chickpeas; hot sauce was a nice finishing touch. The aloo pie was nicely seasoned and very filling. The roti which was the high light of the meal was full of potato (aloo) and curried shrimp. The roti was so good that we ordered a chicken roti as well; consisting of boneless chicken and chickpeas with potatoes in a wonderful curry sauce. $10 for the shrimp roti; $5 for the chicken roti and $2 each for the doubles and aloo pie. Close to the cruise ship port; walking distance 10min.

Setting and views amazing, food was good ! Curried seafood tasted fantastic -Mahi Madhu was cooked to perfection warm quinoa Kale and feta was cold ! As was the service, service was intermittent attentive for some folk and not for others. Be warned they do not accept ECD via card payments it is linked to USD only with no other option, the exchange from ECD is fixed and does negatively affect the cost of the meal it spoilt what could have been a great meal ! Complaints are not dealt with well especially the management Ah well you live and learn! Better places on the island can be found for better food and better value

Reviewed By galliardo - wales

Paolo and team do such a great job with the daily specials (octopus salad on our last visit) to keep up the high standard as well as an outstanding suckling pig and mixed antipasto which are old favourites. Long and excellent wine list by Antigua standards. Energetic and cheerful service lovely vibe throughout the room. Best for dinner, since there are a few good places with a view for lunch.

Papa Zouk

Reviewed By MonikafromSurrey - Surrey, England

It was so good we had dinner at Papa Zouk twice during our hols in Antigua. I love everything about this place - food, casual atmosphere and friendly staff. I had grilled red snapper and hubby had his fried. Both really tasty. And during our second visit after the meal we had 2 rum shots on the house. I think it was called rum fire and was a blend of several different rums. Just brilliant!

Reviewed By Bea-maddy - London

Lovely restaurant just north of the airport , beautiful table settings it really looks like a seaside restaurant . We arrived on a really windy day so didn't get the full benefit of the location with its beach and outside Seating..... 2 wonderful dogs especially the Great Dane who is enormous but a very gentle soul . My reason for 3 stars is simply the food I didn't think it came close to the food at Catherine's or Jackie O's but it was a very similar price ,some of our party struggled to find a main course they fancied and when it did arrive we were far from impressed. A shame the look of the restaurant didn't translate into the food.

Enjoy lunch and dinner in gorgeous surrounding of the harbour with only the freshest food available .... Cloggys is becoming the place to hang out.. Meet friends and enjoy a chilled drink any time of the day

Reviewed By NgFamilyLondon2013 - London, United Kingdom

Lovely location on the marina, with a great view of all the yachts. We had to pay to get into the Nelson Dockyard National Park area. Very good seafood, average price for the area. Friendly service. We had the lobster salad and coconut prawns. Generous servings of both. The lobster salad was the best we had anywhere - the lobster was grilled, perfectly cooked, taken out of the shell and chunked so easy to eat.The sauce was not all over the lobster which it often is in Antigua, so you can't taste the lobster itself. This was just right.

Catherines Cafe

Reviewed By yushany - New York, NY

My husband and I had an excellent meal at Catherines Cafe! We decided to try tasting menu with wine pairing and were not disappointed. Perfect pairing of food and wine flavors. The service was fantastic, friendly and professional. While the memory of food will fade away, our fantastic experience of this very special evening most certainly will not! Catherines is much more than good restaurant. This is a first class restaurant we would highly recommend to all visitors to Antigua!

I wrote a review for This website about how good the hotel was but as I mentioned a travel agency they rejected it. It's a great hotel and we had a good time but trip advisor is crooked.
