We just got married at Half Moon Bay, Smiling Harrys was the natural place to get out of the sun and grab a bite to eat after the ceremony. The food is excellent, they offer lots of local dishes all at reasonable prices. Thanks to Giselle, we will see you next year.

Whilst Harry Thomas, God rest his soul, aka Smiling Harry is no longer with us, his spirit lives on at his restaurant through his friends and daughters. Situated on the approach road to Halfmoon Bay. It isn't so often that a tourist can introduce a local to something truly fantastic, but that is exactly the privilege that my wife and... More

This was a great and simple place to eat like a local, not too pricey either and next to our favourite beach on the island.

We had the Sunday buffet, pumpkin soup, a selection of meat and fish with a variety of side orders. Delicious and excellent value. This is a great place serving home-cooked food. Highly recommended.

This was Harry's place but now it's run by his daughter and her husband and it's just so wonderful, friendly and has the most amazing view over Half Moon Bay, Antigua. Now called the Beach Bum Bar and Grill the food is wonderful, fish in delicious garlic sauce, chicken wraps and burgers. Heaven!

There are two restaurant choices if you are visiting Half Moon Bay. The first, Smiling Harry's, the place on the left after turning in and a second place located at the beach. We noticed that Smiling Harry's was a local's place and we decided to give it a try. We weren't disappointed. We never had roti before and we asked... More
