We visit every year and are never disappointed. There is plenty of choice and the food is consistently good. Staff and service hit the right balance. We're looking forward to returning again next year. Thanks Mark and Adrian!

Beautiful location right in Jolly Harbor. My fiancé and I agreed that their eggplant parm was the best we've ever had. Coming from New Jersey. Huge compliment . Service was impeccable . I Highly recommend this restaurant for a wonderful meal.

The food was very good and what made this place stand out from anything else was the service, not the usual Antiguan Time style, much more of what you would expect from any decent restaurant in UK. Drinks served very quickly order taken promptly and no wait for your food, it was a refreshing change!

This is a pleasant place to eat on the covered verandah. The beer is served very cold and the food is competently prepared without being outstanding.

This place was recommended to us by others staying at Jolly Harbour and we weren't disappointed! It is not cheap but the food was delicious. It was a romantic setting. I would definitely recommend to others.

We chose Melini's whilst on holiday for the second time in Jolly Harbour. There were 3 adults to please and Melini's was one of our favourite eateries. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food plentiful, the menu varied & we could sit outside. Steak, tuna, seafood pasta and the chicken dishes were our favourites. Overall we find Antigua matches... More 

Thank paulandsueatnumber3
