Savor the Caribbean beyond the beach during Antigua and Barbuda Restaurant Week, May 7-21, and save $500 on air fare.
As a region known for its fusion of West African, Creole, Amerindian, European, Latin American, Asian and Middle Eastern flavors, the Caribbean is a melting pot of culinary creations with restaurants helmed by chefs and restaurateurs from around the globe. Antigua & Barbuda stands as a shining example of that culinary mastery with restaurants ranging from roadside favorites to innovative, gourmet encounters.
Created by the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority as an avenue to extend the winter season into spring and summer, the event promises to be a celebration of food, people, and culture. Antigua & Barbuda Restaurant Week invites visitors and residents alike to explore the fresh local produce, seafood, and farm-to-table fare of the islands through prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus at participating restaurants (tariffs range from USD $25-$75 per meal); celebrity chef appearances; and Eat Like a Local experiences, in which islanders invite guests into their homes, shops, or businesses to enjoy a home-cooked meal (USD $15). It’s a taste of island life most tourists never get to enjoy.
The Grand Finale, held on Sunday, May 21st, is the Food and Art Experience, a sensory adventure that invites visitors to explore the art, culture, and gastronomy of Antigua and Barbuda through taste, smell, sight, and touch.
