We took some friends from Montreal to dinner at Papa Zouk last week and they were in 'heaven'. If you like fresh seafood this is the place to go in Antigua. Fish and lobster that was caught in the morning, so fresh fresh fresh! This is a no frills restaurant, very casual , with threstle tables, (so you get talking... More

My wife and I had dinner at Papa Zouk on the evening of 10th January 2017. It is a fish restaurant and was recommended by our hotel concierge. It's a good job we travelled by taxi as we would probably not have found it on our own, and secondly the rum punches were the best we have had on our... More

Funky place with bar with lots of bottles and a few seats. The tables are open air covered with roof . Several choices for entree and starters but fish is the main choice here. Our group of 9 enjoyed their selections . It took a long time to get our meals but they all came out together and by then... More

I visited Papa Zouk whilst staying in Antigua and it was lovely. It's a small local restaurant with a good atmosphere where the owner himself tells you what's available to eat (i.e. no menus!). The food was delicious (I had the lobster, shrimp and fish combo) and there was lots of it. The house rum punch is dangerously nice and... More

This is a quaint little find in St Johns. So glad we went. The food is all so fresh, the menu is limited to what is available that day. And so busy/popular some dishes run out. Well worth going for some authentic local food and a lovely atmosphere. May be a 'bit down to earth' for people who have expectations... More

I had heard so much about this place that possibly I had too high of expectations. However, the service was horrible, and the food was just not worth the wait or the money. Won't be going back, ever.

The dinner we had here was excellent. It is a quaint little spot, with a locals atmosphere. Portions were large, and the staff was very friendly.

We had this restaurant recommended. It was such fun. Our waitress was a St Lucian girl and had such a great sense of humour. She made the evening. The male owner was not there, so we met the female owner (I am sure they know one another!). She took us through the menu and whatever we had was delicious. I... More

A fantastic meal. Catered for our vegan need even though it wasn't a normal menu item. Would highly recommend the fish options
