You’ll want to try every one of our five restaurants and bars serving delicious dishes from Italian classics and authentic Indian to grilled catch of the day seafood and jerk chicken. Whether you love adventurous flavors or are a finicky eater, there is a meal suited for every palate. Be sure to stop by the Courtyard for Afternoon Tea every day at 4:30 p.m. for a scrumptious pick-me-up and find the opportunity to socialize with family, friends, and guests from all over the world.

Hemispheres | Buffet
Start every day at the breakfast buffet with selections ranging from fresh fruit and granola to pancakes and made-to-order omelettes. Come in from the pool or beach to a lunch buffet of soups, salads, sandwiches and tasty selections from the grill. In the evenings, menus are inspired by world cuisine and change nightly.

Bocciolo | Italian 
Classic Italian dishes served in air-conditioned comfort, Bocciolo offers a cool change of pace. This antipasto bar will call you back for seconds, but try to save room for the chef’s homemade pasta, salads and mouth-watering Italian entrées.

Lydia’s | Seafood 
Tropical blended drinks, grilled catch of the day, waves lapping on the shores – that’s Lydia’s! This open-air beachside restaurant is casual and relaxed with a real island ambiance and flavor. Lydia’s is the place to be on Sundays for lively steel band music and a delicious Antiguan brunch buffet. Sunday Brunch is seasonal.

Margarita’s | Mexican  
Tucked in a cozy, open-air setting, Margarita’s is an excellent place for Mexican cuisine.

Coconut Grill | Beach Grill
Steps away from the beach and pool, the grill’s grab-and-go menu offers quick and tasty choices like hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled jerk chicken and crispy French fries all afternoon. Take a seat on the Observation Deck and you’ll be treated to an amazing panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea and Jolly Beach.

Afternoon Tea
Every afternoon, the Courtyard at Starfish Jolly Beach Resort turns into a casual gathering place where guests can wander in from the beach and pools to nibble on sandwiches, scones, cakes and cookies while catching up with friends and family.
