Everyone keeps telling me how good Rum Baba is, but i cannot get past the dirty venue and dry (2-day old at least) bread they served me (on two separate visits). The food is cheap, but so are the ingredients and it shows. Sorry Rum Baba, but doubt i will be back.

So good we went twice in our 9 night stay. Really delicious and very charming shabby chic shack. Highly recommend this venue, Each dish surprised us with just how more technical and complex it was than it sounded on the menu - loved being surprised and delighted by every plate!

Gorgeous little restaurant just opposite the Entrance to Falmouth Marina. We went for lunch and dinner. Lunch was a choice of delicious salads and a short menu (I had a fried feta salad - amazing) and dinner was an experience - fresh, local seafood and vegetables(meat was also on the menu) beautifully presented and prepared in the kitchen, right in...

Took the whole family for probably the best meal out we have had in years for New Year 2016/7. Great atmosphere, delicious eclectic food cooked in front of you, wonderful staff and owners! Thank you!

Been to this superb atmospheric Italian restaurant several times for supper, never fails to impress. From the simplicity of the menu to the execution of divine food served beautifully by the owners😀

Have been coming to Antigua since 1976 but had never visited Rum Baba (though to be fair it wasn't open in 1976...). Went for dinner with friends who highly recommended it and I can see why. It is a family owned and run restaurant with a gorgeous vibe. Very relaxed. Super food, beautifully presented. They were very accommodating for my... More

We enjoyed Rum Baba so much we went twice and it was just as good the second time. Don't expect finesse, but do expect a warm welcome attentive and engaging staff and the food !!!!! Great atmosphere we have been in the middle room which can get a little warm as you see the chefs cooking the food and outside... More

In 16 years of visiting Antigua we had missed this one. We went because our other favourite, Abracadabra had disappointed us by closing immediately after sailing week. Yes, the other reviews are right, the restaurant is small to the point of being cramped, but the food is simply spectacular. Depth of flavour, great presentation and you can see the prep,... More

the restaurant is small in size but the food is excellent. I enjoyed the chicken stir fry which you can see being prepared and cooked in front of you. The food is very reasonable and they provide a takeaway service to many of the local businesses. they also offer an excellent buffet service. always book to guarantee a seat!
