Best Restaurants and Bars in Antigua and Barbuda

Sunday, December 25th, 2011

Antigua and Barbuda is a country formed by two islands found between the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea and just to the east and slightly south of Puerto Rico as well as being just off the northern coastline of South America.  This tropical location has long been a favorite destination for vacationers from all over the world, not only for the tropical client but for the amazing cuisine and nightlife that you can find all over the islands.

Lunch could be anything that is purchased in a bakery or deli shop while dinner is usually a considerably larger spread that includes macaroni, pasta, or rice; salad or vegetables; a main course of beef, chicken, fish, or pork; and a side dish such as macaroni pie or scalloped potatoes.  The following are some of our top choices for the better dining venues on Antigua and Barbuda.


Calabash – a brand new restaurant and bar located in English Harbor which features some of the best international cuisine served for lunch and dinner.  The establishment has excellent indoor or outdoor dining facilities that provide patrons with some amazing views of the island sunset.

The Cove – the best example of fine dining on the island of Antigua, the restaurant and bar are perched atop a cliff top on Antigua’s northwestern coast.  You’ll be able to enjoy some breathtaking views of the Caribbean at night or during a sunset.

Bumpkins- One of the causal ocean front beach restaurant and bar that offers a selection of local Caribbean fare and drinks at reasonable prices. Situated at Pigeon Point Beach close to the Flamouth Harbour, it is usually a busy place with expats, tourists and locals enjoying a drink or a meal.


Green Door Tavern – located in the heart of Barbudan life, the establishment is decorated with historical boating artifacts.  They serve delicious food as well as cocktails and wines.  The relaxed atmosphere includes an assortment of jazz and merengue music to listen while enjoying your meal.  The restaurant also caters to special parties and for other occasions.

Lyme Bar – the bar, disco, and restaurant is located in close proximity to Codrington Lagoon.  You can enjoy lunch between noon and 3 pm Monday through Saturday while dinner is served from 6 pm until whenever they decide to close, but it’s usually late.  Burgers and chicken are the specialty and for entertainment you can play dominoes or pool.  Friday to Sunday nights are dance nights with DJ providing the music and allures both locals and tourists alike.

Despite the fact that we have only listed a total of four bar/restaurant combinations, there are dozens of others to enjoy whenever you are visiting this tropical two-island nation.

    In addition to those listed, my wife and I would heartily recommend The Hideout restaurant near St. James’s Club. Hosts Max and Nikki are extremely friendly and the food is always excellent!
