Restaurants & Bars
Simplicity and individuality are at the heart of Jumby’s cuisine. Executive Chef Alex Chen creates signature dishes and an array of combinations that simply must be experienced. His fusion of East and West is inspired, fresh and elegantly understated.
The Jumby Bay Veranda
At the heart of the island is the Jumby Bay Veranda – steps away from the water, welcoming guests daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A generous breakfast is available with choices of a la carte specialties, and a continental selection with fresh breads and pastries. Lunch and dinner offerings transport guests to a seaside Italian trattoria, highlighting home-made pastas from fluffy and light gnocchi, to rustic tagliatelle, and fresh seafood and meat enhanced with Jumby Bay Farm’s own herbs and produce. This open-air restaurant offers a refined culinary experience elevated with the passion of Italian cuisine and the rhythm of the island and ocean.
The Estate House
The Estate House is the top fine-dining destination in the Caribbean, combining classic fare with modern island flavors, drawing on the culinary traditions of the West Indies. The circa 1830 plantation house, once the centerpiece of the island’s sugar plantation, includes a main restaurant and the 1830 Bar with three private dining rooms as well as a wine room all inspired by the home’s rich history and island traditions. Richly combining the impressions of a traditional colonial home with a contemporary perspective, The Estate House’s design represents a modern interpretation of the Colonial spirit. Curated local artwork depicting local Antiguan life, flora, and fauna, and vintage maps adorn the walls, while sophisticated tableware and accessories offer a refined dining experience while enjoying dishes tastefully designed to enhance the delicate flavors of the freshest seafood, meats and produce of the Caribbean. This isn’t just dinner – it’s an experience!
The Pool Grille
With its spectacular beachside setting, skirting the oceanfront infinity pool that overlooks the Caribbean Sea, the Pool Grille is perfect for those who can’t bear to leave the water’s edge. Serving casual bistro fare for lunch (salads, sandwiches, grilled seafood specialties), in addition to house snacks and refreshing cocktails, smoothies and fresh fruit juices throughout the day, sunbathers can choose to dine under the shaded canopy or order from their lounger.
Jumby Bay Island x Casamigos
The new place to be on the island is the limited-edition Casmamigos Margarita Beach Shack pop-up with cocktails specially curated for the resort.
Jumby Bay’s bartenders have been fully trained by Casamigos mixologists to serve up delicious cocktails, including the Casa Margarita and La Piña. Located in the vibrant center of the resort on Jumby Bay Beach, the beach bar embodies both brands’ ethos of bringing friends together in a fun and relaxed way with branded umbrellas, surfboards and glassware, creating a colourful backdrop and photo moment.
The Jumby Bay Bar and Lounge
Often the first stop for many guests of Jumby Bay Island, and the final place to share a drink before returning to the rest of the world, The Jumby Bay Bar & Lounge, is the chic social hub of the island.
Just steps from the sand, The Jumby Bay Bar & Lounge offers the perfect location for beach side cocktails throughout the day, or an after-dinner nightcap. Small plates, snacks, and scrumptious cocktails are served here daily, complete with charming West Indian smiles from the bartender.
Upon arrival, guests are transported to a world of colonial elegance in 1830 bar. Situated within the old plantation house and retaining historical elements of the original structure, the bar features a color palette of rich green tones inspired by the verdant island landscape. Whimsical palm murals that have adorned the walls for over thirty years have been thoughtfully restored. Furniture and fixtures incorporate traditional materials such as teak and rattan to emulate the style of past travelers and explorers. Guests can also relax in the courtyard, an outdoor lounge space to savor pre or post dinner drinks amongst tropical plants and a commissioned fountain carved into the shape of a “Turk’s head” cactus by a local artisan. Cocktails at 1830 are refreshing, making use of local tropical fruits, honey, and West Indian spices to enliven classic and obscure cocktails with a modern twist.
Beach Chic Bar
Set directly on the sands of Jumby Bay Beach, and surrounded by a garden of towering palm trees, hibiscus and wild orchids, the Beach Bar is a traditional open bungalow with a thatched bohio that is the center of beach service.
