A nice find that was recommended by our cruise ship director. After walking about I wanted a drink and decided to stop in. There was a long waiting list to get a balcony table, which looked wonderful. Since I was by myself I sat at the bar. I had the house specialty drink that was refreshing. Friendly bartender and staff.

Great coffee and service. Nice lunch menu, and has other great meals available. Make sure you ask for your change, it won't be given if you don't.

It is located on the second floor of the building, not really handicapped accessible since you have to climb a flight of stairs. But when you do get to the top, grab a table on the balcony, order one of their fresh seafood. Even the lobster looks delicious. We had a drink and a sandwich for lunch. Get break for... More

Having been recommended hemingways from various websites, we approached the restaurant with some expectations! :) when looking for it, everyone seemed to know it and say that the food was great, which can only be a good sign! The table we got overlooked the street and had an open window - lovely. It's a very cosy setting, very relaxed and... More

This restaurant was just what the doctor ordered after a morning of snorkeling. We had a lovely outside balcony seat, wonderful service and yummy food and drink. Make sure you have the local beer Wadadli and request a seat on the outside balcony.

Day stop on a cruise brought us to St. Johns Antigua. After walking around the town we needed a refreshment and found Hemmingways. Located on the second floor of an old house the ambiance was fairly inviting. The service was good with numerous staff. The tables were decent as we enjoyed our refreshments. Many food orders passed by and look... More

Dropped by for lunch and saw a vacant table by the window. Make sure you grab one of them when you visit... It's a perfect spot for watching the world go by while having a great meal!!

although Hemingways is in the centre of St.John's by climbing the stairs to their restaurant with its first floor verandah you can get away from the crowds and noise but watch the bustle from above whilst having your refreshment/meal. There is a very good cafe menu with charming service.

Nice characterful setting overlooking the busy street, great for people-watching and getting a flavour of the local specialities. We both had the curried conch and it was delicious and great value. A good strong rum punch too. The service was good, if a little indifferent.

Thank Manny S
