/Lovely beach bar restaurant overlooking the beach and not far from the hotel Curtain Bluff. Food is excellent but the service rather slow. Jill & Tony make you most welcome. Access to the toilets not easy if you are slightly handicapped. Well worth a visit!

Let me premise this review in saying I was on the Carnival cruise ship Freedom with my wife for 8 days, four ports and many taxi rides and tours. All the taxies take you to the same places trying to give their friends the business and to get free lunches and such for bringing you. My chance we had our driver stop for a picture and noticed an open sign at the Boxer Shack. We went in had a drink and rest room break only to leave and be taken by our driver to his wonderful local beach restaurant. It was packed with at least 30 taxis, the restaurant was crowded and hot. We left and had our driver take us back to the Boxer Shack. The location is gorgeous, the breeze was blowing through for the perfect temperature. The food was unbelievable. We had the fish soup, made from red snapper and split an order of spring rolls. The owners are a British couple, the husband the chef and there is some resentment from the locals and the drivers won't stop there unless forced. The complete experience was so refreshing after being herded from place to place on the cruise. We paid in US dollars but the bill came in the local currency format thus $127.50 equaled $46 us with tip. Don't miss this place.

Beautiful beach bar/restaurant with an amazing setting above the beach.
We didn't eat here as were just passing and couldn't resist so stopped for a beer. We accessed the beach via some steps which was empty and very romantic!
Will definitely return!

My wife and I stayed at Villa Genevieve just adjacent to the boxer shack. After a long day traveling we had dinner with the owners Gill and Tony. The steak was amazing and the views are incredible. We spent a week traveling and "eating" the island. All was said and done The Boxer Shack was at the top of our list. Don't' miss the sirloin, grilled fish and lobster salad. "To die for."

We discovered this gem on our last day in Antigua. The food and wine were divine, the host was the most helpful and attentive. The other young waitress who's service was only matched by her beauty kept our glasses full and attended to us without being intrusive. A fantastic romantic lunch ended our stay perfectly. It is pricey but you always pay for good food and service so we were happy to leave a tip too.
