And of course, we never forget the little ones – they have their very own menu! Serving seafood, salads, freshly baked breads and satisfying pasta dishes Indigo on the Beach is popular throughout the day ​
With a reputation as one of the best restaurants in Antigua, East also attracts many visitors from around the island. Entering through tall, carved Indonesian doors the dark wood and fuschia interior is seductive. Japanese, Thai and Indonesian dishes all feature on the menu, expertly created by our multi-national culinary team. Choices include freshly-caught seafood, duck, beef, chicken, lamb and vegetarian options, all prepared with the tantalising flavours of the east.

This is a sophisticated and stylish dining experience and perfect for celebrating a special time together. Dinner in East is your chance to shake off the sand, dress up and create holiday memories to treasure for years to come. East is also an ideal venue for a wedding breakfast or a family occasion. Speak to us if you would like to organise a booking for your celebration.
A feast of authentic Italian dining in a less formal setting, poolside under the shade. Ottimo! is often the first choice for lunch or a casual dinner with the family. The wood-fired oven produces the most sublime pizzas while the menu also includes antipasti, crispy salads and gelato to cool off. Ottimo! looks after the younger guests too with its Little Ottimo! menu.

This is a holiday dining experience that appeals to everyone. You will have the chance to spend time together and enjoy really good food simply prepared. This is what Ottimo! delivers.
Jetty Grill
The Jetty Grill boasts another superb setting, overlooking the Carlisle Bay jetty and those clear blue Caribbean waters. Adult-only dining, it still retains a relaxed atmosphere making the most of the unrivalled views and gentle sea breezes. The rich aromas of grilling meats, fresh seafood and a carafe of fruity wine in such a magical setting will create a lasting holiday feeling.

Food is locally-sourced and the menu reflects a Caribbean fusion of these wonderful, fresh ingredients. This is a great place to sit back and enjoy simple yet exquisite food in that special unhurried atmosphere of the Caribbean.
