This is a small cafe style restaurant on the approach track to Half Moon Bay. They serve drinks and a small range of lunch dishes. It has a number of picnic benches with plastic table clothes which are all under cover. We stopped before visiting the beach and very much enjoyed our visit. We had goat curry and a cheeseburger....

We've been to Antigua a good 5 times now and every time without fail we go and have a burger at Smiling Harry's. Not only is the food delicious but he and his staff take good care of their customers. They catered to my vegetarian needs, turning their amazing burgers into a meat free version of it the first few... More

Judging by the other positive reviews, this place has gone downhill. We had the snapper and the grilled chicken. They were both poor to average and the place was empty. The shack nearer the beach was far better.

Our two trips to Antigua were blessed by this man and his brother the year before. Never have we spoken about a local establishment as much as this one. Delicious food, great conversation and bottomless rum and cokes toasted the day at Half moon Bay. This man was a great one and we will no doubt feel his presence when... More

Whilst Harry keeps on smiling in the great Half Moon Bay in the sky, it is worth visiting his family's other bar 100 meters down next to the carpark, where it is business as usual. In the meantime, the family are working hard to tidy up the area and re-open the original Smiling Harry's. It was such a shame not... More

We have previously reviewed smiling Harry's and just wanted to say what a lovely man, and sad loss to the area. He was great company, and we will miss not chatting with him next time we visit Antigua. Our thoughts to his family, bless you Harry you were one of a kind.
