This is one of our favorite restaurants on Anguilla. Anytime we are here we try to get a reservation and dine here. The have a fair priced wine list to complement your meal. My wife and I split the Fettuccine pasta appetizer and it was plenty for both of us. We both had the snapper meunière and it was delicious.... More

We had been referred by the owner of our resort to Jacala as the best French restaurant on the island. The food was very good to average. I had the grilled crayfish which was excellent while my wife had the stuffed chicken breast which was ok. We found the pricing relatively high. Service was average but deserved a failing grade...

Went to Jacala our first night on Anguilla. We were not disappointed, one of our best meals on the island. There was a nice selection on the menu, the food was fresh and delicious. Definitely the best restaurant on the west end.

Have never had a bad experience. Feels like you're in France with an island setting. Service, food, setting unbelievable. This is usually our last lunch before we leave the island. The chef is amazing, very humble and a great chef. Highly recommend, but in season make reservations for dinner. Can't go wrong. If you want fast food don't come here.... More

Plan in advance! This was my favorite restaurant on the island. We were lucky enough to get in when someone did not show up so we hopped in a taxi and were there in 5 minutes. They are normally booked and I would recommend making a reservation 1-2 weeks in advanced if possible. Call… do not email for a reservation.... More

We visited Jacalas on our second night in Anguilla. We ended up getting engaged after a wonderful dinner at a table overlooking Meads Bay. The food is very fresh and flavorful. I had fresh fish, a good bottle of wine and chocolate cake. The service is very friendly and the owner comes to your table and visits. This is a... More

Ready for a little French flavor? Reserve a table at Jacala on Meads Beach. It is unquestionably the best restaurant in Anguilla, ant the owners know it.

Jacala Beach Restaurant is my favorite restaurant on the island! I live in Anguilla for 22 years and am a frequent guest there. Food, staff and setting are perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant to everybody visiting. Make a reservation early because it's usually booked out for lunch and dinner.

Beautiful setting. We enjoyed dinner during sunset which was amazing with a nice glass of wine. For appetizer we ordered the tuna tartar which was delicious. Hubby ordered the chicken stuffed with lobster which he was not crazy about. However, we both agree that the crayfish was the best on the island. They were grilled perfectly, juicy and delicious.
