Restaurants that stay open during the summer
In Antigua, businesses tend to close down their restaurants in the summer months.
The warmer weather and less tourism tends to cause some restaurants to close up shop until the fall. However, we have gathered this short list of restaurants that will be staying open during the entire summer on the West Coast of Antigua to give you some options for dining if you’re in the area.
-Al Porto – This Italian Restaurant is always consistent and lovely. Located on the water’s edge, this spot never fails.
-Darkwood Beach Bar and Restaurant – This local beach bar and restaurant is located on one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. You can enjoy a swim and local cuisine like curry goat or the day’s catch!
-Fox House Restaurant and Bar – Here you can expect a chic twist on local food, delicious cocktails and good vibes. They are farm-to-table.
-Karnagio – An authentic Greek Restaurant that has a fantastic menu and location that transports you to true paradise.
-Sea Dream – You can get the best lasagna, burgers, and chicken wings here!
-Sheer Rocks – Gorgeous sunsets and yummy tapas, people tend to go here for a romantic date. They are currently offering summer specials, which is also a great day out with friends.
–Wild Tamarind – Located on another stunning beach in Antigua, this restaurant is a fantastic spot for lunch and dinner.
Each restaurant is about a 5-10 minute drive from The Gardens and offers excellent food, ambience and service. If you are in Antigua make sure to try one of them out! Always call ahead to make sure they have space available, some of these restaurants require reservations beforehand as well.
Jolly Harbour and the West Coast have a remarkable array of restaurants that allow you to travel the world with your tastebuds. We would highly recommend trying the local spots – there is nothing quite like West Indian cooking! The summer can be a slow time in Antigua. However, there is always a lovely spot that you can find to eat at and enjoy a cocktail or some delicious local juices. During the winter season, starting in October, the island starts livening up again and the choices for restaurants, cafes and bars are endless!
