  • For a Taste of the Caribbean...

    Tropical Sensation, a Caribbean-themed restaurant on upper Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan, more than exceeded our expectations, with very tasty Caribbean selections, good service and a pleasant, neighborhood atmosphere. Try the paella, served for two but easily, three or four people could eat this wonderful seafood concoction with delicious yellow rice. Also try the tender Ropa Vieja, served with a huge mound of yucca. Terrific empanadas and fried meat croquettes; in fact, we could have ordered one order of each (instead of two). Tropical Sensation has a nice wine and beer list and good sangria, too. Go for the fun atmosphere, the neighborhood feel and the excellent food - a nice surprise.

    We were looking for a place that served yucca ( long story,regarding the proper way to prepare it) and unless we want way uptown, there seemed to be nothing in my immediate area until I "found" Tropical Sensation. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but once inside you'll finds a clean, well laid out neighborhood place with a menu that would be ideal for lunch or dinner ( we went for brunch). The servings are large so you can definitely share plates. The quality of the food is vert good and the prices were in-line for the area. The service was friendly and prompt, making a return very likely.
