There's no question that if you walk through the back alleyway that leads to this restaurant, you'll turn around and walk the other way. You'll get whiffs of a foul fishy stench. Broken planks of wood liter the grounds leading to The Little Kitchen. A large weathered purple loveseat sits abandoned under a palm tree right next to the stairs that lead up to The Little Kitchen. Etched on the wall, just under the restaurant, is an ominous warning: "Beware of Stray Dogs!"
Had we not researched The Little Kitchen on TripAdvisor, we probably would've looked for other restaurants had we bumped into it randomly. Fortunately, we did our research!
The restaurant itself is unassuming. Two flights up on rickety old wooden stairs, you'll find a basic setting of wood tables and plastic seating. Reggae music playing in the background and a friendly staff, all of the sudden you're whisked away from the less than ideal surroundings just two stories below.
My wife ordered a garlic butter lobster while I opted for the curry shrimp. Both were excellent - cooked just right, tender, and juicy. The lobster was sweet with a hint of citrus and garlic. My curry shrimp was zesty with some heat to back it up. Both were absolutely delicious. Both main dishes came with a rum drink.
Serving sizes were a bit on the small side, so we opted to order an additional appetizer. We chose a helping of chicken burritos. The chicken was succulent and the burrito was wrapped with some greens to help balance it out. Drizzled with a bit of hot sauce, this was a great way to end our meal.
Prices were on the more reasonable side for fare on the island. If you're looking for a good meal and don't mind the unassuming walk through a slightly dodgy back alleyway to get there, The Little Kitchen is a great option!
