I would not call this good, edible but not good. There are a few choices that come with the all inclusive and several you can upgrade for a cost.

This is a seafood restaurant, but I had the chicken because my options were limited. I ordered calamari for an appetiser only to be told that it was unavailable. Strike one. I wanted seafood, but shrimp and lobster dishes come with a hefty surcharge in US dollars. This restaurant is located on an all inclusive resort. The two fish dishes... More

I visited this restaurant twice during my stay at the Jolly beach hotel, in my opinion its the best of the Al la carte restaurants the hotel operates. You do have to pay a premium for lobster, but that is expected. The service is prompt and friendly the snapper I ordered was cooked to perfection and I thoroughly recommend a... More

This restaurant was a highlight of our stay at Jolly beach. Good sized lobsters (a premium is charged for guests) and worth the price.

The restaurant has no air very hot in Antigua fish was overlooked chicken parmigiana minus the cheese more like chicken tenders decorated on top of scoop of spaghetti with drop of sauce. Lobster tail was good but you paid extra for it. No impressed better food at red lobster

Lovely food at the restaurant. Romantic and need to book at the concierge at the hotel as they give you set times and open on set days.

The food here was amazing compared to main restaurant of the hotel. Do not make your reservation too late though, they run out of certain dishes you may want.

I ate at this restaurant twice as it was well prepared and the presentation was very good. I had lobster the first time. Even though it cost $25 US, I had to have it. Done to perfection. Had dessert as well, coconut cream pie. It fit the spot. The second time I had snapper. It wasn't really seared but all... More
