First time visitors to Jolly Harbour - we decided to try out the Friday night BBQ at Castaways. Overall it was very good - the place was packed so the service was a bit erratic - but the staff were running around trying to make it work, and slow service isn't something I overly worry about on vacation. Definitely worth... More

Restaurant was located within walking distance of the hotel we stayed in, directly on the beach. The Jerk Chicken was very good as well as their Pina Colada - one of the best that I have ever had. Staff was friendly and the view of the beach was very beautiful and relaxing. Except for the flies and mosquitoes - I... More

The staff always had a smile on their faces with a special mention to Daisy who never seemed to stop smiling. The owners take a genuine interest and are... More

As third time visitors to Jolly Harbour we were delighted with the new and improved Castaways. Situated in a prime spot on Antigua's beautiful Jolly Beach, this previously bog standard cafe has in recent months morphed into a stylish restaurant and bar, complete with Buddha statues and - when we visited - cool chill-out music from London DJ Mikey C....

We initially came to Castways for the Friday night beach fire BBQ night and so good it was that we're coming back again this Friday as we were well impressed by the Indian tikkas which were super fresh, moist and very, very tasty. Castaways is undergoing something of rebirth this season with a revamp of the bar area allowing the... More

Food was delicious and options were plentiful. I recommend the Beef sandwich, it was crazy good! 3. People were friendly, professional and attentive. 4. Owner stopped by to make... More

Last night, we had a memorable experience at Castaways in Jolly Harbour. I will explain, but first I must set the context. It starts with the Jolly Harbour grocery store and bus stop, which are a little more than a kilometer from our rental villa. Pedestrians commonly walk along the edge of the narrow road that connect both ends. Some... More
