Interesting experience and well worth a visit. Liked the rum tea we had - something different. Food was pretty good, but not excellent - pan fried red snapper, mahi mahi. Owner not used to low key feedback on food (he expects it to be loved). If he doesn't want constructive criticism he shouldn't ask for it. Summing up, this is... More

It was more than just great food, the entire experience was outstanding that started with Bert, the owner who sat down with us to share the menu - personally! The boulibaise was phenomenal and the fish was equally as good. Overall, it was a very good experience that we... More

Than we sat at the bar a bit chatting with the womAn owner and some staff. They were great and it was fun. Then we sat down... More

Excellent for local cuisine, mostly seafood. The tea punch is delicious (a mixture of rum, sugar, and lime juice) and quite addictive.

Myself and husband visited Papa Zouk last week whilst on honeymoon in Antigua. It was so good we went back the following day. On our arrival we were met by the friendly staff and the owner came to our table for a chat. If you are a rum fan, you will not be disappointed, as there's plenty to choose from.... More

We went with an island friend here, but after being told how good it was, we were disappointed. No atmosphere, staff although helpful were just that brought your meals and no conversation, the owner who was there also said hi and that was it. Wasn't busy when we arrived although a table of 10 did arrive later. Had the snapper... More
