I had the lunchtime buffet which seemed good value with a wide variety of choice. My glass of Prosecco was flat so make sure that they open a new bottle rather than squeeze the last drop out from the evening before.

There for business. Nice buffet provided though I wish we actually had a view of the cricket. Nice place though.

Went with friends and family and had an extremely amazing experience. It was restaurant week and the choices of dishes, the display of the dishes and the service was amazing . One of the few places in Trinidad that gives you top notch service.

The layout was nice. The salads and dessert were nice however I was not impressed with the main meal. The meats and the sides were not as tasty. The air conditioning was also not working on that day

Always consistently good and the service is great as well. Full five course meal and then some. The buffet offers a lot of variety

Dishes are attractive to view, and there is a wide variety. However the food is not as tasty especially the local dishes. Service is selective, nor everyone gets the good, attentive treatment.

I love Jaffas lunch...all you can eat. Plenty choices. Attentive staff. I hv never had their breakfast or tea options but if it's anything like the lunch, it's amazing.

I had brunch at Jaffa at the Oval and it was a great overall experience. It was in a buffet setting. The food was laid out in a very attractive fashion and it tasted quite delicious. The choices were varied from cooked foods to sushi...More
