My group and I had the best
My group and I had the best time at Calablash! The service was great and our server new all there was to know about the menu and what to suggest. A few of the things we wanted to order had sold out so that was a bit disappointing but I guess it just goes to show how good their food is!
The music was a fun volume, the lighting was just right and the seating was comfortable with a very funky ambiance which I liked.
Overall experience was fantastic and I would not only go back but would recommend Calablash as well.

Over-all a great time
I planned a gathering of 7 friends at Calabash to celebrate my birthday and we had a great time. I wanted a one-stop evening and Calabash's DJ provided an opportunity for my friends and I to dine and then spend the rest of the evening celebrating. The food was amazing and I will definitely go back to try some of their other dishes. Our waitress was great and attentive, although she was less attentive as the night progressed and the restaurant switched to nightclub, although I don't think this was any fault of hers. The number of people in the small space increased a lot but the number of servers didn't.

They have Tusker!
They have Tusker beer! That's gutsy, considering most places are too snobby to serve a good Kenyan beer. Goes great with the Ackee and Salted Fish (prepared with great skill and very flavorful). Probably the least pretentious restaurant in that area. Service was fantastic, and the atmosphere was truly Carribean without feeling contrived.

I've eaten here 4 times and
I've eaten here 4 times and always find the staff very attentive and accomodating, while still giving you your space and allowing you to dine 'in peace', so to speak.
The food is great; There aren't really any other palces around downtown that cater towards such an authentically Caribbean menu.
I am vegetarian and the options they have are really nice.
I've recommended the restaurant to 2 or 3 friends :)

Great food, felt rushed
Restaurant was very accommodating with a last-minute addition to our reservation. The lady over the phone gave me the impression that we had plenty of time to have dinner and enjoy ourselves, but they started clearing our plates pretty swiftly, which would have been fine except one of my guests had not yet finished her meal.
However, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful. I would go there again but not with a party.

Nice vibe. Friendly service. Good Caribbean style food. Quieter upstairs. Lively music scene downstairs.

This is my favorite island restaurant from
Paris to Toronto.. And one of my favorites anywhere I've travelled from Ibiza to Jamaica, Miami, New York...

Second best West Indian Food Ever!
So, I was told about this place by a good friend of mine, and since I am Jamaican, she suggested we go there. Now, I am VERY hesitant to eat at Jamaican or West Indian food places because I think my dad makes the best Jamaican food EVER lol so because of that I am extremely critical and usually end up disappointed. However, this was most certainly not the case with Calabash. The service is fantastic! Super friendly and sweet. The food was absolutely fantastic all around...everything was cooked just right and bursting with flavor. As an added bonus, the restaurant has something going on every single night and we had dinner late on Saturday and waited for it to turn into a dance club- I had a phenomenal time and this is my new favourite place

The food was really good, however, the portion size was a bit much! It would be nice if there were smaller portions.

Food was great. Waitress def knows her job!
Only thing is that music was too loud. I recommend it if you are woth a group but not if this is a romantic dinner.

Dining was exceptional, we were greeted at the front door and taken down to our seats. The service was on time, not too rush and paced. We would have loved to stay in for the reggae live DJ, but was getting too packed downstairs. There were a lot of people standing already so we felt obliged to leave. Nonetheless, it was an overall pleasant experience, and would definitely book for larger group dinners and or potential venue for live performances. Thank you. Keep up the good work, and keep tryting to improve.

Great night out!!
Amazing, unique food at every visit, outstanding service and delicious drinks (dark and stormy top of the list !!!!). Will be coming here many more times in the future!! The music and downstairs lounge is the best way to end the experience!!

original food that tastes amazing
We have gone to Calabash many times before and it never disappointed: everything on the menu is delicious, including unusual items, like oxtail. Seriously, where else in the city will anyone be able to find the most delicious oxtail dish served in tiffing boxes? The menu also has plenty of vegetarian options as well as amazing seafood. Their rum selection is one of the best as well. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to try authentic Caribbean food: you won't be disappointed!
