SIZZLING, SUCCULENT, SCRUMPTIOUS Antigua’s European history is still evident today, particularly in the English Harbour and Jolly Harbour areas where French, Italian and British pub grub are easily available alongside Caribbean food.  Antigua offers excellent and culturally varied cuisine island wide.


Roadside barbecues near Nelson’s Dockyard on Fridays and throughout Antigua Sailing Week offer an affordable option for crews. Many visitors have favourite vendors that they return to each year for local dishes such as conch water, lobster and grilled fish, as well as the inimitable chicken, ribs and burgers.  The Copper and Lumber Store Hotel also features Seafood Fridays on most Fridays throughout the year on the lawn behind its historic location.
