Absolutely loved our meal here
I had curried lamb with rice and peas and plantain
It was my favourite meal of the whole trip
My friend had saltfish and rice and peas and took some home as she was full
Would love to go back
Friendly and helpful staff
Would be great if they added cocktails to their menu :
AMAZING!

We ate there after a recommendation however the food was only warm and poorly presented. We were greeted by the waiter who told us half of the menu was now sold out. My son asked for his food to be heated in a microwave which took 10 minutes and then it was still only warm. I wouldn't go there again.

The service was ok on arrival but nothing outstanding.

We selected what we wanted only to be told they didn't have a lot of the menu options. Only fish available was parrot fish... just poor.

We chose a variety of mains, curried lamb, jerk chicken, jerk pork.

Portions were small, food Luke warm and dry.

The plantain was lovely and the bakes were tasty.

Would not recommend. The other Jamaican restaurant around the corner is by far better all round!

Breakfast was excellent (still thinking about the perfectly fried dumplings), went back for dinner both days of my trip to Barbados. Gracious hosts, hope this family owned and operated authentic Jamaican spot continues to delight foodies.

One of our favourite casual spots on the island. Terrific roti, great friendly service and always affordable.
