Very Good Food and walking distance from the resort. I met the owner and he cares about the customer satisfaction of his restaurant.

Above average service and food but missed the spot in being excellent. Fish was above average, pasta average, pizza above average. Cheesecake with lemon flavor not to my liking and chocolate indulgence excellent.

We stopped here for dinner on one of our first nights. The location is right in the harbor overlooking the boats. The food is great and so is the service. Prices again are very reasonable. For my main course I ordered the seafood special which included scallops, shrimp, mahi, with roasted potatoes. The garlic butter sauce they put on fresh... More

The food was really good the service was average at best , but this could have been due to the fact they were busy. I would go back again.

We have been to Jolly Harbour for 4 years now and each time our favourite place to eat is Melini's. The staff are always friendly and attentive. Try the specials board, always good value, their vegetables are cooked to perfection. If you are looking for a coffee in the morning this is the place to go. Well done to all... More

The menu is varied and the service is good. The meals were exceptionally good in taste and quality and the absolute best while vacationing in Antigua.

Food is ok but not as good as we expected from reviews. It's fine but no more. Location feels a little odd as though it's a shopping centre food court

Was so looking forward to an authentic Italian food experience as the reviews were all favourable. The staff was attentive and the owners were very observant and very quick to make things right. Even the chef made an appearance to see who was unhappy. We had ordered pepperoni pizza which was just O.K tho the serving portion was very generous.... More

We felt very welcome by the owners when we arrived. I'm sorry to say, but the dark tall waiter was not the right person for this job. He was unpleasant from the beginning to the end. Never smiled, never said thank you, he forget our bread but did not excause himself. I want to give this restaurant 4 stars because... More
