Fodor's Caribbean Cruise Ports of Call
By restoring part of Ft. James, with its glorious views of the bay and headlands, and converting it into a semi-alfresco eatery, Russell's delivers a delightful dining experience. Jazz and reggae on the sound system (live music Friday and Sunday, with open mike Monday), beamed ceilings, cool canvases of musical instruments in fevered Fauvist hues, and red or black hurricane lamps lend a romantic aura to the stone-and-wood terrace. The limited menu—local specialties emphasizing seafood—includes fabulous chunky conch fritters and whelks in garlic butter. Danielle Russell maintains the tradition her father established at this restaurant. Russell's sister Faye co-owns Papa Zouk, and sister Valerie runs Shirley Heights Lookout; the Hodges might well be Antigua's first family of food.
