papa zouk restaurant

best antigua recommended

Located in St Johns is the well known and reknowned Papa Zouk Rum Shop. It's much more than a rum shop and has some amazing food. There is no menu instead the patron Bert Kirchner will come to visit and tell you what is on offer.
It only opens 7 til 10 pm and closes sunday.


Under New Management- the following information may be out of date.

Probably the best sports bar in Antigua - maybe the only one really. Certainly the go to bar in the Jolly Harbour area. Rumour has it they are opening up in the mornings to show english premier league football. The food is very good too. You will get to mix with locals and expats alike. Marc the manager certainly knows how to run a good bar with his experience of managing bars all over the world. It's almost a theme for the bar as well with flags adorning the walls and ceiling.

Lobster Night Al Portos

Italian restaurant on the Jolly Harbour waters edge. Specialising in Pizza (2 for 1 tuesday night) and Pasta dishes. I know them for the informal and fun atmosphere and eating lobster on a Sunday night. Try and get a table by the water and stare at the tarpon swimming round - love that.

Castaways Antigua

Now under the name The Popup Beach Bar previously under the name Bo Dog and before that Castaways Beach Bar and Restaurant.

Popup is located on South Beach adjacent to Jolly Harbour. Rated for location and it's authentic Caribbean menu. They have beach volley and depending on the evening themed nights.
