Where to Eat in English Harbour: The Best Restaurants and Bars

February 20, 2018 Veronika Gaddis

English Harbour is a natural harbour and settlement on the island of Antigua, in the extreme south of the island. The settlement takes its name from the nearby harbour in which the Royal Navy established its base of operations for the area during the eighteenth century. Its population is 759 (2001 Census).

Trappas Bar & Restaurant

Reviewed By Beachhut45 - Surrey, U.K.

If you find yourself in English Harbour wanting good, honest food at a sensible price then Trappas must be on your list.
The menus have hardly changed for many years but are quite extensive and should cover most tastes. The food is fresh and well cooked and is popular with locals which I always think is a great sign. There are no frills at Trappas but there is a great atmosphere and the staff are very efficient and friendly.
For us, there is really nothing not to lioke and we will be back on our next visit.
Just one word of advice. Printed publicity cards say that Trappas is nor open 7 evenings a week but was not open on Sundays while we were in the area.

Shirley Heights Lookout Restaurant & Bar

We are a small but proud restaurant and bar located at the historical "Lookout", part of the Shirley Heights military complex. The Lookout affords a breathtaking view over English and Falmouth Harbours. The view from Shirley Heights Lookout is a perfect setting to watch a sunset. Behind the catchment on the highest point, 490ft (150m) above sea level, was the Signal Station from which a system of flags was used by day and guns by night to convey messages to St. John's by way of Great Fort George on Monk's Hill. Our opening hours are generally from 9am-6pm during which lunch is offered. We extend our hours to accommodate dinner on the weekend and also to host our exciting party labeled 'Sunday Sunset Barbecue' from 4pm-10pm. Our Seasonal Thursday Afternoon Barbeque runs from November until May.

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.

We had been recommended to go here for some local food and were not disappointed. Both of us had the chicken roti and enjoyed it. It was a good experience and although the staff werent over the top friendly (they came around lol, I think it may be a cultural thing?) it shouldn’t discourage you from stopping by.

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!

We ate breakfast here most mornings and they have a good choice and reasonable prices. They also do a great pizza if you want something in the evening. It's a great place to sit and watch the world go by with a beer too. Staff are wonderful and very friendly - Glen, Julie and LaToya we miss you all

Found this restaurant by chance after coming out of Nelson's Dockyard and exploring English Harbour. A small restaurant back off the main street (follow the arrows) serving great local food.The friendly owner put different items together for us so we could taste more of the authentic dishes.Locals eat here and there is a varied menu to choose from. There are local homemade drinks.... I enjoyed the Sorrel.

Good service. Very friendly. Kept checking you were ok and if you needed another drink etc. The carpaccio starter came very shortly before the pizzas so we were double parked. It would be better to finish the starter first. This place is relatively new and I would recommend it and return.

Rum Baba

Reviewed By Richard G - Hungerford, United Kingdom

Outwardly the appearance of this place does not give you the impression that you are about to have the best meal of your holiday. Don't be fooled, how wrong first impressions can often be. This place and its owner are priceless, we did indeed have the best meal of our holiday.
It is a very small shack like restaurant on a busy street. The first thing you will notice about it is that it is always packed and not without reason. Booking is essential.
We had dinner for 6 and the service was quick and efficient but not hurried, the wine list was more than adequate and not over priced. The menu was first class. 6 or 7 starters and the same amount of main courses and for the first time in many years there was nothing on the menu that I would not have had. The food was superb, authentic and fitted the location brilliantly.
The whole evening was a total joy and I highly recommend it. £45.00 a head and worth every penny.
The place is run by an Italian lady who was full of character and quite clearly is extremely good at her job. The place ran like clockwork.
