This is not a fancy restaurant. It is located at The Queen's park Cricket Club. The menu is decent and suitable for a quick meal. Not a place for fine dining or a fancy dinner get together

We attended the Christmas Tea on Tuesday 29th November, 2016 and we attended the Christmas Tea last year as well, however this year was a big disappointment. The buffet choice was poor, the dessert buffet was absolutely horrible and the price for the Christmas tea was increased from last year. If you cannot provide quality food then do not increase...

If you are hungry and in the Port of Spain area, visit Jaffa's. Here is a continental fusion with undertones of Caribbean flavours. I would say, North meets South. Tasty soup awaits, delicious salad and mouth watering main course and dessert. The price is nice too.
