Located on the stunning Pigeon Beach, Catherine’s Café, now in its third decade, has a new and dynamic team at the helm. The vibe is the perfect combination of the unhurried ambience of a quaint Parisian café with the fresh, aromatic cuisine of Provence and the barefoot cool of a beach club.

Catherine’s Café offers classical French cuisine with Provence-style influences and local ingredients. We offer an unparalleled chill out experience. With two new beautiful areas on the beach perfect for groups to lounge all afternoon, and an amazing beach menu featuring French Tartines designed to share. Relax on our lattice-back chairs and languish in Catherine’s refined-yet-chic sun-dappled setting. Think the sleekness of Saint-Germain-style music with the relaxed vibe of a beach club.

Our goal is to create a truly beautiful French restaurant here in Antigua, which serves classic French food yet is cool, fun and captures the charm of the Caribbean’s laidback atmosphere.

Catherine’s is a gem! Fabulous location on the beach and overall venue setting is gorgeous. Service a little slow but made up for by great food and delicious, fresh cocktails. Totally recommend and would go back again and again for sure.

The food just wasn’t what we had expected. Certainly one of the most expensive restaurants on the island but not up to scratch.

Amazing experience at Catherine’s!!! Our favourite spot in Antigua to dine with group of friends!!!! Amazing food, especially tartare and fish! Beautiful and cozy interior, insta worthy! Great cocktails and menu list, wine variety of great wines! And they make the most amazing mojito cocktails!!! Staff is super friendly and professional! Always the best experience in Catherine’s! Also amazing beach chairs to chill and have cocktails there too!!! Looking forward to come back to this gorgeous atmosphere!

Fell in love with this place, the atmosphere just added to already amazing food. Probably the best food I’ve eaten in the world let alone Antigua. We went at sunset and was unbelievable. Highly recommend

Really poor service and food. It took over an hour from ordering for our food to arrive, and when it did the parsnips were totally raw, the meat also undercooked and the ravioli swimming in water rather than the promised butter and sage sauce, very soggy and sad. A beautiful setting, but poorly executed and over priced for essentially inedible food.

Very overpriced with tiny portions of food. Quite frankly for a premium food destination in Antigua the food was not good enough.
But the location and restaurant and ambience are excellent.

Have been here a handful of time and usually it’s great. Unfortunately, it may have been where we were seated, but the service was abysmal and night and day compared to previous experiences. 20 minutes before anyone came to check on us / order drinks as tables around us were being served. No water, no bread, no one coming to get fresh drinks - for the price point this shouldn’t happen. Willing to give the place the benefit of doubt and hope it doesn’t happen again

Having just re-opened after the pandemic and with a new chef this place is still number 1 in English harbour. The setting, staff and food is all top notch. We love seeing the band at the weekend but also enjoy a quieter lunch during the week when you can relax on the beach. A must not miss for anyone coming to Antigua.

All round this is a great place to eat. Out third time there and always a jolly reception from the staff. And the Pina Colada’s are first rate. I slightly surprised the band played the same tune four times during our dinner. They need to extend their repertoire!

Catherine's is in the most beautiful setting, the welcome from the staff is really lovely and everyone creates a lovely ambiance.
This is our second visit and a real highlight of any Antigua trip.
This visit there were one or two things that could have been better, the service, whilst super friendly was very slow (more to do with the chefs I think) the wine could have been kept colder (top ups of ice offered) two of our party had ordered lobster and were disappointed after the starters to be told the chef had miscalculated and they couldn't have lobster after all. I had quiche which was nice but not as full of flavor as it could have been. My scallop starter was delicious and my husbands Mahi Mahi a real delight.
the gin and tonics are superb!
This is a top end restaurant with prices to match, high standards have been set, a truly beautiful place, I hope you wont mind me just mentioning those one or two points to improve on.
We LOVE this place! :)

Strange because we ate at their sister restaurant Sheer Rocks and had an amazing experience. I have a feeling they just had an off night Server thought we canceled our appetizers but non of us could come up how he got that. Owner offered us bread instead but never brought it. Food was only OK. Amazing ambiance though. My guess is this was just an off night because Sheer Rocks was amazing
