Antigua, GT: Pangea

We dined at Pangea and were introduced to Chef Neil on a gorgeous night in February 2011. We stopped by earlier in the day to make sure that they could accommodate 8 people. The server stated that this would be no problem and that he would be happy to set the table up for us right now. It was only 3pm and we weren't planning on returning until 7pm or so. We explained this but he insisted on getting the table ready for us. We were happy but it made us a little nervous. Were they that desperate for business?

It didn't matter. We returned that evening and sat at the table that was specially set up for us. There were a number of other diners who were obviously enjoying their food and we were happy to sit back, enjoy the live music, and join them. We ordered wine, appetizers, and entrees.

My radicchio, prosciutto, and fig salad was tasty as was my husbands similar flat bread. For an entree I had the blue cheese pasta topped with steak. The steak was perfectly mid rare. I was almost expecting a heavy cream sauce but was happy with the lighter pasta that Neil prepared.

My friend was pleasantly surprised that the coconut shrimp was not your standard fried affair that we might expect in the States but rather a sauteed dish served with rice and salad. She loved her meal and her husband also thought the filet of beef was delicious.

This is certainly a restaurant to visit if you are spending any time in Antigua. Here are some photos:
