Fodor's Expert Review Amalia Café
A great place to take a break and get a bite while shopping, this open-air café tucked into the alleyway of Palm Passage is owned by Antiguan-born Randolph Maynard and his German wife Helga. They serve authentic Spanish cuisine. Try tapas such as mussels in brandy sauce, escargots with mushrooms and herb butter, or Galician-style octopus and baby eels served in a sizzling garlic sauce. Paella is a house specialty, as is the caramel flan. Ask for an inside table if the idea of passersby checking out your meal isn't too appetizing.
