We have a very lovely dinner. Small but great place. The ambience is wonderful and the food is delicious: the spicy shrimps, the grilled sea bass fillet were excellent. The Vanilla ice cream with olive oil drops and some salt . The friendly service was great . Good value for your money.

Hector's Bistro is my favorite restaurant in Antigua. My husband and I ate here 9 years ago when we were visiting here and ate there a lot. Hector sold the restaurant 4 years ago but the new owners have kept the name, the menu and the recipes and now it's as good or better than it was all those years... More

While ownership has changed, no more Hector, the food remains consistantly great. Still small, frequently need to wait to get a good table, but worth it.

This hole in a wall is a must. No more than a dozen tables. the menu is imaginative and all they do is TOP drawer. The local shrimp heads on in a spicy (not too) are a must/ their steaks are great and super fried with real ketchup

I come here at least once and sometimes twice during each visit. Small but cozy and the duck is best ever.

Not sure how this estblishment got such high reviews. The place is tiny and our table was so small. they put 3 tables into an area that should have had just 2. You would almost be eating on top of each other. Not for us. We came for lunch since we were out and about Antigua and needed someplace to... More

I came here on my first night at Antigua, it was a gorgeous place with a rustic theme, although the service wasn't very good because I constantly had to get up to ask for something. The food was delicious, I ordered a plate of duck with potato and carrot slices, amazing!

The place is small and not appropriated for large groups. Party of four is ok. The food is excellent, the best portobello mushrooms ever. The fish delicious. The price adequate and you really could have a nice experience. The service regular. Probably what they have to improve is the restroom, clean but only one. I will come back.
