We had an excellent evening meal. This was by far the best restaurant we visited. I had tenderloin pork which was served professionally and tasted superb. The manager named Prince went out of his way to ensure our meal was perfect and his staff are a credit to him. A first class restaurant. We will return.

We happened to stumble across Carmichaels driving back to our hotel after a day at darkwood beach, we spotted it up in the hills :) The views are amazing- try and get there to watch the sunset. Beautiful. We hadn't booked but the staff were accommodating and everyone was really friendly and helpful throughout our meal. We both enjoyed our... More

Ok, so we know that Antigua is not exclusive cheap when it comes to food, but when one goes to a finer restaurant, one would expect something for your money. Four of us went to dinner at the lovely restaurant at a great location. After somewhat reluctantly being seated at a folding table with a table cloth, the mediocre service... More

Mr. Prince was extremely personable and made us feel right at home whether it was for a sunset dip in the infinity pool or for an after dinner drink. Views from atop the restaurant are rivaled by few other places on the island for the gorgeous west coast sunset. Worth a visit.

Having only visited for cocktails at sunset I am unable to properly assess Carmichael's. What I can say is that we enjoyed the cocktails from this elevated location and thought that it would be a great place for dinner although did not see menu.

I dined here with my girlfriend in August 2016 during a ten day stay at Sugar Ridge, where the restaurant sits at the top of the hotel grounds. Service was warm and friendly and the food was okay although a little bland and portion sizes were small. This was disappointing as the menu read so well. The vast majority of... More

We were staying at sugar ridge so we dined at Carmichael's on our first night. The views are incredible, and the restaurant is classy and a nice setting. However as we were there off season, it was very quiet - there was just one other couple in there at 8pm. Some music would have made things more atmospheric. We had... More

We decided to have dinner at Carmichael's last night since it was our last night in Antigua. The views are great as everyone has indicated and the reception and service throughout the meal superb. The staff are very eager to please to ensure the dining experience is pleasant and memorable. The setting is excellent for a special occasion or intimate... More

Even better than last time. As we were staying at Sugar Ridge we ate at Carmichaels a few nights. The food was again very good, my other half who is vegetarian was very well catered for and the chef would let her create her own dish by picking and choosing from various bits and pieces from the menu. A few... More

After reading some advertisements about this restaurant in the local tour guides, i was expecting an elegant dining experience. The views are fantastic, but don't expect air conditioning! It's open air which, yes, can be enjoyable as long as that's what you're expecting. Wish the restaurant offered an air conditioned option which would have allowed us to enjoy our dining... More
