Fodor's Expert Review Papa Zouk

$$$ Antigua Caribbean

According to owner Bert Kirchner, Papa Zouk is not a restaurant, but a rum shop surreptitiously disguised as a favorite seafood joint—don’t miss the pan-fried snapper and garlicky gumbo (bouillabaisse). Located off the beaten path, the deliberately kitschy decor—madras tablecloths and lobster traps turned chandeliers—draws a hodgepodge of characters from locals to English Harbour yachties, actor Robert De Niro, and the man who notoriously set the bar ablaze. Showcasing more than 100 rums, the bar includes rums from Japan, Papua New Guinea, and, of course, Antigua.
