This little beach bar / restaurant was a joy to be at. They had lovely chairs and umbrellas to rent to keep you out of the hot sun while ON the beach, and wonderful RUM PUNCH. Best we had on the entire island! We had one of the staff delivering drinks to us at our beach chairs, so that was awesome! We also had lunch, which consisted of a lovely lobster salad and a club sandwich. Oh they were both delicious! Dessert you say? Try the creme brulee..to die for!! Service was great, cheerful and friendly servers. Prices were high..but then they are all over Antigua! Bartender gave me the recipe for the drinks so I could make them here at home. Lots of tables, chairs and umbrellas on the patio to enjoy your meal outside, or inside in the open air atmosphere. Lovely. Closed early due to end of season so we did not get a chance to enjoy dinner there.

Loved Long Beach and being able to sit under umbrella's at the restaurant all day long. Great food everytime we ate there and definately the best rum punches on the island!!
We stayed two weeks on Antigua and tried a lot of different places.

Excellent spot for relaxation and a spot of shade from the intense mid day sun. Staff very helpful and the food was excellent for all the family

I am starting to think that on antigua you cannot eat well, no matter how much you spend or where you go. I was looking forward to having lunch at Tartaruga, we probably decided to spend the day on long beach for the sake of having lunch here

The beach is not too big, but was not crowded, and the sea has so many shades of blue it reminded me of Sardinia, so when I saw lobster pasta on the menu at half the price of our hotel restaurant (still 25 USD, beware) I felt inspired and just went for it

Unfortunately it was nothing as expected. It was not bad, but nothing unforgettable: the pasta was alright, maybe slightly overcooked, the sauce was not acid but not something a good chef should put on a table either, and it definitely looked tossed on the plate, as a lazy mamma could do, or maybe not even - see photo

My boyfriend had the burger. He said it was alright but it looked as if it had been sitting on the bar, waiting to be served and the fries were soggy, so the place is not good on comfort food either

In all fairness I can't really rate the food, it seems we were a little over served and none of us can remember what the food was like..

the people were very friendly and the service was great, it was by far the nicest looking place on Long beach
