We loved it in De Shak a few years back when Anita was running it. We gave it another try and it was ok. We ate here one night and watched the Sunday Night entertainment there. We also met a great family holidaying from Trinidad.

We had jerk chicken and ribs, the ribs were delicious and highly recommend as the meat just falls off the bone. There was some entertainment next door with karaoke which we could see and enjoy- nice evening & would recommend.
