In the day it is a great spot to visit. South Beach is fantastic and this restaurant is the only option for refreshment there. It is a popular beach stop for cruise ship visitors. If you are staying in Jolly Beach Resort it might be worth wandering down in the evening to grab a cocktail and catch the sunset.
The location is beautiful. You would dine here in the evening to get the experience of eating on the beach. Check in advance as there could be the added benefit of a bonfire and evening party on friday.

Dinning is affordable but many are suprised at the final bill. It seems tax and service charge get added after. Other restaurants in Antigua typically allow you to choose the level of tipping and/or they absorb the tax or it is clearly stated is included or not.
