The fine-dining focal point of Jumby Bay, The Estate House is a stylish Spanish Colonial plantation house on the western edge of the island. Set overlooking the sea and the lights of Antigua and surrounded by a fragrant garden of palm trees, hibiscus and wild orchids, the classic colonial house (c. 1830) was once the centerpiece of the island sugar plantation. Now it's a sanctuary of civilized dining highlighted by romantic sophistication and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine.
The Mediterranean-inspired menu of The Estate House features selections of short courses and entrees with bold flavors. Among the menu's many highlights: Palm Heart Salad with garden greens, tomato, celery, and passion fruit dressing; Lobster Risotto with roasted prawns, spinach, almond and balsamic glaze; and Grilled Lamb Cutlets with grilled new potato, carrot broccoli and bacon jus, and Crisped Whole Island Fish with sweet and sour sauce, plum sauce of sweet chili glaze with vegetable fried rice. The Estate House serves dinner and afternoon tea Monday-Saturday. The Estate Bar is open Monday-Saturday.
