We stopped off for a few drinks at this bar around lunchtime. It has a really nice traditional Caribbean atmosphere. We sat on one of the balconies overlooking the streets below. There was a nice breeze, the building is on a corner plot and has...More

Enjoyed a lovely dinner with my wife on the open air balcony of this place. The seafood linguini was fantastic. The evening general manager was present and oversaw an enjoyable night for us.

We had a great meal at Hemingways for our honeymoon! Our favorite was the kingfish! Definitely recommend this place!

Don't be put off by the entrance, there really is good food served at the top of those stairs! Location convenient but by no means the best, furnishings spartan but the food is really good and the staff helpful. I would definitely go again.

Dropped in for a couple of beers on visit to St. John's, good service and a authentic almost Havana feel

The only bad thing was we were there when a cruse boat was in so Hemingways was very busy. Good for them they deserve the business. Its an interesting Caribbean eatery and well worth trying if you can manage the stairs..

Hemingways is located just outside the duty free shopping zone where the cruise ships dock. It is up a flight of stairs, so access is limited to those that can climb the steps. From our table on the porch we were able to watch life...More

Far from it! There's a set of very steep, long wooden steps which lead to the restaurant off the road. Very tricky.
