In my opinion this is one of the nicest beaches in Antigua. The restaurant is relaxed and welcoming and the staff are extremely helpful. The food is varied and the portions are of a good size. Highly recommend!

A lovely, relaxed restaurant situated right on the typically beautiful sandy Antiguan beach. Food good and varied, lovely breeze flows through this restaurant which is set under a canopy. Beautiful area and views and you can watch the yachts as you dine. Worth a visit.

Great restaurant in fab location. Food is great, freshly made on site with the Caribbean influence. Great people watching too and with the beach front tickling your toes, you cant ask for more. Try the crab cakes or the sticky ribs. Killers blended drinks are awesome and its good value.

The restaurant has a great set-up where you sit at the best vantage point for looking at the waves and they send your orders by phone to the kitchen. The service was some of the best on Antigua, and the prices were decent. I had the jerk-pork salad which was spicy and delicious, and a mango "smoothie" which was so... More

Had lunch here on our last day in Antigua. After a bit of a mix-up over whether they were actually open for business or not, we managed to secure a table and sat down to a delicious lunch. Lovely salads, divine apple pie, good wine and big smiles and chat from the staff. Huge praise to Kimberley who not only... More

Service usually good but relaxed! Need make reservation as can get quite busy. Nice to go for a dip after... More

What a location, fantastic views of big & small boats, Montserrat on the horizon, cooling breeze under the palm trees, wonderful. The food is ideal for a relaxing lunch before going back to lie on the beach, great food, good service.

We were looking for somewhere to eat around English Harbour one afternoon, and decided to follow the signs for Calabash along the road up to Shirley Heights. We were a little concerned that our little hire car wouldn't make it back up the road, but carried on. We found the restaurant on a lovely decked area overlooking a beautiful beach... More
