Catherine’s Café can be found along Antigua’s southern peninsula at stunning Pigeon Point Beach. This beloved gem is tucked into the corner of sailor’s paradise, English Harbour. Established in 2006, it became a Rocks Group Restaurant in 2017, now alongside Sheer Rocks & Rokuni.

The French-inspired beachfront venue offers modern, healthy, and stylish menus that are created around the native produce from local famers, which a focus on fresh seafood. Catherine’s Café is surrounded by lush greenery and mesmerising neem trees, providing an idyllic backdrop for long daytime lunches or refined & relaxed dinners by the sea.

Saturday afternoons are a crowd-favourite, featuring live music on the beach, as are Wednesday evening Jazz Nights with the O'Neal-Mason Quartet. The fun and friendly staff only heighten the experience!
Luxurious daybeds are sprawled across the sand, with a popular beach menu, designed for sharing. Sit back with a rosé in hand and enjoy Catherine’s sun dappled setting.

    Another fantastic meal at Catherine’s. Loved the band. All the staff were super friendly and attentive particularly Earl who was lovely. Can’t wait to come back and will definitely try Rokuli too.

    Despite being told many times before and during our meal that my wife is coeliac and needs gluten-free food and despite specific discussions about it with several waiters she was then served with an obviously gluten based dish. When queried, the waitress reaffirmed that it was gluten free. Fortunately we insisted on checking with the chef and the meal was changed. Amazingly, waiting staff continued to offer obviously gluten full dishes. The staff are obviously poorly trained and/or not very bright. How can we ever have faith about anything at Catherine’sCafe again? Exposure to gluten for coeliacs is dangerous with distressing symptoms and effects. I would be interested in hearing from someone in authority about this sad affair

    The food and the setting of Catherines’s are hard to beat. We’ve always loved both the food and service at Catherine’s, Rokuni and Sheer Rock. Unfortunately, today we were overcharged €125 and instead of getting an apology, we just got bad attitude and excuses from manager “N” blaming a staff member who had to go home to attend her child. The correct and professional response is “I’m sorry” but all we got was fake indignation and excuses instead of a genuine apology. It’s a shame because this group of restaurants brings a level of professional service that is sadly lacking from many restaurants in Antigua. We’ve eaten at Catherine’s dozens of times so we won’t let this single bad experience stop us eating there again but I hope they train their staff better to deal with customers who have been overcharged. The rest of the staff (like always) were lovely apart from this manager.

    We were made to feel so welcome by everyone and the staff were very attentive. The Cane Sugar mojitos were the best ever! We had a lovely afternoon here chilling on the lounge beds followed by a superb lunch in the restaurant. I loved the feel of the place and the ambient music. The baked snapper for two was deliciously moist, washed down with the most perfectly chilled bottle of Chablis. This was all topped off by the best lemon pie I have ever tasted. A little bit of paradise on earth. Can’t wait to return.

    A very uninviting restaurant, dirty tables, incessant flies buzzing around, worn grubby sticky menu cards and smokers at tables either side of us. Unmotivated slow staff. Food… Caesar salad fine, but tasteless prawns. Seafood taglioni a disaster. Pasta swimming in watery juice and very mixed quality of shellfish. No acknowledgment from the manager that we we’d sent this back. Used to be a very special restaurant and now unloved by present owner. We will never return.

    As frequent patrons, we were pleasantly surprised to find Catherine’s returning to its old best. Food was good, although we’d like to see greater variation in the menu (accepting that there are daily specials). Service was better than in recent years. All looking good for the season.

    Catherine’s was a breath of fresh air. From the friendly staff to the welcoming atmosphere, Catherine’s is a must visit when in town. We especially loved their cocktails! The icing on the cake is Pigeon Point beach located right outside of the restaurant. Following our reservation, we took a dip in the water and relaxed until we went back for drinks afterwards! 10/10

    We had a really weird experience here. Wait staff was not very friendly and we were told that the reservation we had was not valid. Food was okay and ambiance was fine considering we’re in the off season. It was a beautiful restaurant but it felt like we were doing something wrong by eating there. Overall wish this experience was better.

    Unexpectedly quiet for a Friday night but nonetheless a really pleasant dinner and excellent attentive staff. The food was great if not the wine a tad expensive despite its drinkability. Katherines remains a splendid place to eat.

    The BEST! You must visit and spend the day at the beach here if you are in Antigua! We went our first time a few years ago and knew we had to come back again this trip. The food is so good and the view is to die for! After we ate lunch we lounged in the day bed and went for a swim.

    We had a very disappointing experience. Staff were very welcoming and attentive. We initially had very nice cocktails but the food was very poor. I had the pork belly which was just one piece of fat with no meat. I also had the catch of the day which was grouper and after the pork asked for chef to make sure it was well cooked. It was served raw in the middle and was cold. I sent it back but it wasn't right even when they have re-cooked it. We were expecting a nice meal that turned out to be very poor. The cost, even after not paying for the pork belly was nearly EC$800. AS I result of this experience we have cancelled our lunch at Sheer Rocks.
