Dennis’ Cocktail Bar and Restaurant in Antigua
As a child, Dennis Thomas often climbed to the top of a hill sandwiched between two of Antigua’s most beautiful beaches. Upon reaching the pinnacle of this hill, Thomas would daydream of owning a restaurant that would honor the cooking of his mother and the memory of his father.
In 2006, Thomas’ dream came true when he opened Dennis Cocktail Bar and Restaurant on the same hill he roamed as a child. The restaurant Thomas built with his own hands is framed by the stunning twins, Little Ffreyes and Big Ffreyes Beach. These beaches are arguably the most picturesque in all of Antigua.
Lunch time customers can breathe a sigh of relief if one expects to pay the price for the extraordinary views. The panoramic head-turner is free and the menu is reasonably-priced. Dennis’ bistro is a great opportunity to sample home-cooked Antiguan cuisine. Local specialties include curried goat, grilled lobster, garlic shrimp, ribs, and the restaurant’s signature dessert, bread pudding. Customers can also take a break from the Caribbean sunshine with a chilled Wadadli beer or a rum lover’s favorite dubbed Romance.
Dennis Thomas’ childhood vision can be found in Bolans Village located just south of Antigua’s capital city of St. John’s. Tell your taxi driver to take the exit for Cocobay Resort and Little Ffreyes Beach.
If you’ve ever imagined photo-shopping yourself into a real-life Caribbean postcard, then Dennis Cocktail Bar and Restaurant is a one-of-a-kind Antiguan experience. You’ll find spectacular views, great food, and a restaurant that would make Dennis Thomas’ parents very proud.
