The Mainbrace Restaurant

There’s a splendor and magnificence to the Nelson’s Dockyard National Park that has taken the breath away from the millions who have journeyed to Antigua to experience paradise. At the centre of the Dockyard, stands the Copper and Lumber Store Hotel and Restaurant. It is more than a modern day masterpiece of restoration.

The doors of the restaurant open onto the dockside of the Dockyard, where some of the most expensive yachts berth during the year.  The courtyard restaurant blends Caribbean romance with a European feel for an astonishing setting of dinner intimacy.

Its stony architecture, held together by huge wooden beams, keep the inside fresh, cozy and relaxing, perfect for breakfast and lunch time dining. Lunch time choices include Grilled Chicken, lightly glazed with Balsamic Honey, sitting against a julienee of vegetables. Our staff recommends trying the grilled Mahi Mahi - our personal favourite!
