The setting was very nice. (although too many mosquitos) . The food was good, (probably very good for Antigua) but not great. No Children's menu, but they were able to make Pasta for the kids. Service match the food. fair prices.
Very very long wait for their shuttle to take you back to the lobby. We were not staying at the resort, but the only way I would consider ever staying at the resort would be if they gave me my own personal golf cart.

This restaurant is situated right at the top of a hill in the Sugar Ridge Hotel complex. You get there by golf buggy provided by the hotel. We ate dinner there so it was dark but would imagine the views are stunning in the daytime. The service was very good and the ambience of the restaurant was excellent. The table we had was a little dark though as we weren't near any of the ceiling lights but the food was good. We both had a filet steak which was delicious.

The maitre de Clifford, was a lovely guy and complimented us on our choice of wine which he had selected earlier that day. He made us feel really welcome and took time out to have a chat with us.

A bit more expensive than some of the other good restaurants in Holetown but well worth the experience.

My husband arranged my birthday dinner here and Clifford took great care of us. The view was spectacular, wished we had arrived earlier to see the sunset. The service was amazing, the best we had on the island by far. The special birthday treat was very yummy. Thank you for making my birthday special.

The restaurant is beautiful, in a great spot overlooking the ocean. Service is wonderful, staff friendly, atmosphere perfect. Food is good, but not amazing, and in the opinion of all 6 of us who dined way overpriced for what it is. I think I'd eat elsewhere but maybe go here for the sunset, with a drink and an appetizer.

we stayed at Jolly Harbour for 10 days and luckily we made reservations ahead of time.. we were picked up at our Villa on time.. and were welcomed by the Maitre D', Curtis?? because it was our friends birthday... he had spread some flowers on the table.. we were right at the railing... and watched an amzing sunset.. wow.. mmm fantastic.. the menu was great.. Curtis explained everything...he took the order and than turned if over to a server.. (that part was not that great).. the server tried hard... and kind of made it... but he had not the same experience Curtis had.. something missing..
the meal was great.. dessert. mmmmmmm .. we did not have wine.. and after dinner drinks.. but felt all prices were reasonable..
after dinner we walked around a little ... what a view.. what a place.. then we were taken down to the bottom of the hill by golf cart.. another experience.. (my wife keeps her eyes closed)... and the driver took us as close as possible to our street.. he is not allowed to leave with the golf cart.. and the Range Rover was out... so we walked home.. which was a perfect ending..
