Love going to Jacala for lunch at least one time during our stay in Anguilla. Jacque is always friendly and helps make our dining experience more fun. Go for the Rum punch - it is simply the best.

expensive but most of the good restaurants are higher end. This was just ok to us maybe it is just not our flavor others seemed to like it we didn't. The Chef was a very nice man.

The food was great though long in coming. The servers are friendly and helpful but we will NEVER go back because of "Jacque" the owner. If he is of French extraction, there is some doubt, he embodies what people dislike about French snobs.
