“Great atmosphere and food!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Not only was the food excellent but it was a very cozy, warm and comfortable place to lounge once you have stuffed yourself with the amazing food. The food and drinks are a little on the pricey side, but you definitely get what you pay for. I would highly recommend going there and spending the entire day. The bartender REALLY knows how to make great cocktails and the loungers on the beach are super comfy to watch the sunset!

“Jacqui O's - Amazing hospitality, exquisite food all in a superb setting”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We have visited Jaqui O's Beach house for the second time in a week.
Really is a must if you are visiting Antigua as nothing like it elsewhere on the island.
The owner, Lance, has assembled a great team around him. Think slick operation but in a relaxed Caribbean vibe.
Great menu, amazing presentation, heady cocktails all served with a welcoming manner.
Thoroughly recommend.

“A wonderful experience, if you're tempted... Do it, you won't regret it!”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We're sitting at the airport and I'm compelled to commend the team at Jacqui O's for their hospitality and fantastic food.

We were recommended by another couple we met whilst on our two week holiday, we saved be best until last clearly!!!

Portion sizes are enormous, so make sure you are hungry! We were impressed with the wine list and after saying we weren't going to drink, ended up having two bottles of wine!

Yes, it's expensive, but you get what you pay for, a wonderful, unhurried chilled out experience which epitomises Beach Chic for us.

Well done, we hope to return one day in the future.

“Jackie O's a must visit while in Antigua!!!!!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

What a great place! Great food, wonderful people and service. Lance and his team are devoted to making you feel at home. Best parts are eating a great lunch with a glass of champagne and falling asleep on the comfortable beach beds! Pavarotti and sunset absolutely moving too. If you are in Antigua you need to spend a day at Jackie O.'s. You will keep coming back! Lance and team...thanks for making our stay so relaxing and comfortable! We will be back!

“An outstanding setting and wonderful food”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

This is a beautiful beach bar/restaurant. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Specials were superb although no prices on the specials menu. Had one of the best crab salads I have ever had. Meal was pretty expensive and then they charged US$10 for use of the sun bed! Marred the experience somewhat.

Thank you for your positive review.

As for the prices of the specials, I don't quote the prices individually as they all fall within the level of the median of dishes of that category but when asked will do so readily. Occasionally the chef, who is tremendously talented as you have seen , will come up with something truly amazing, for example, Easter Sunday was Herb Crusted rack of New Zealand Lamb with rosemary reduction. It was Michelin star quality, but the cost of raw materials on the Island meant we had to sell it at $135 per order and I was sure to explain that it was outside normal pricing structures.
Last Sunday we featured Rossini Burger, described by me as 'the most self indulgent burger in the caribbean', it was topped with Foie Gras and accompanied by a white truffle au jus. it was also $135 and a crazy price for a Hamburger as I advise all takers. We sold out in the first sitting !

The chairs are very expensive and of high quality. Our chair charge for diners is simply to offset the cost of maintaining them and provides no profit centre for the restaurant, however they provide a level of luxury unknown outside of a few resoets in the entire Caribbean.

Hope to see you back on Antigua soon and welcoming you to Jacqui O's Love Beach.

All the best
