    Oh my God I love this place. This was one of the highlights of my trip. The views where Majestic the music had you up and ready to party it was Lively and relaxing. I good place to order for the chicken and the potato salad was so tasty, yummy yummy. If you ever have the privilege of coming to Antigua this place is a sure-fire must. You will not be disappointed. But you really should wear comfortable shoes because it's a hill and your on rocks and everyone looks relaxed so no high heels for this ladies LOL

    Such a good visit on a Sunday night! They have card machines for bar but bring cash too. Such an amazing view and the band at night is great fun! Watch out for the Rum Punch!!!

    A must see if in Antigua. Beautiful view day or night. Thu and Sun nights there is live music and a great atmosphere. What a place to watch the sun set, drink rum and dance the night away!

    Awesome view of the island. Fun place on Sunday evening if you like live music, booze and dancing.

    1 of the most picturesque views on the island, and the area is drenched in deep island history. The Sunset party on a Sunday gives visitors a real taste of island/Antiguan style partying! Will be memorable for all who visit and a favorite for visitors FOR SURE!
