Though it was very cold ( I think they need outdoor heaters)
The restaurant was definitely worth it all
Great food and service

It is a good location. But as we went when the weather was still rather cold and unfortunately went in the afternoon when the sun was right on the other side of the restaurant, it was not pleasant sitting outside in the cold and would highly recommend outside heaters for outside sitting. I am sure when the weather warms up it will be good enough. Another thing that lets the restaurant down is the the long wait for food especially when seated outside when the weather is cold.

The food was okay enough, tasted fresh but did not make up for sitting in the cold. Shame we have had an April weather that is not warmer maybe this brought a downer on the experience.

Get outside heaters and the food should not take that long. I want this restaurant to succeed so might give it another try when the weather is a lot lot warmer and give another review.

Food and service was amazing. Daughter has a milk allergy and they went above and beyond to cater for it. Staff were really friendly. Will be returning again.

The food was amazing and the staff were incredibly hospitable. They gave my friend a slice of cake for her birthday which was so kind of them. The staff are very friendly and I would definitely recommend them and I'll 100% be back.

Food was good, lovely jerk chicken and plantain. Can get a bit chilly outside, mocktails were very refreshing and well presented. Worth a visit for sure.

Lovely food in a lively environment. Great music with good vibes. Very nice staff too. Only negative was there were no outdoor heaters so we were freezing. The food also took a long time to arrive. But overall we loved the place. We will definitely be going again, when it’s warmer!

Service was super late, and our food took 1hr 30 mins to arrive. Would probably be best on a summers day as there was no heating or blankets available. Thanks to the kind gent who offered us complimentary hot drinks at the end which was a nice touch to end the evening.

Arrived to a friendly nice environment. Took a while for someone to take order so we had to call someone. After quering how long starter would be they brought out wrong starter. Them after being very cold outside 15mins went by we asked another waiter and he said he would check. We ended up asking for main to be packed as we were not willing too wait even longer for the main. Starters came to be honest very tasty but by then fingers were numb. Manager offered discount so we paid and went. Very dissapointed as we found out our order was lost. If someone had explained this in the first place it would of been common courtesy.

Service was very slow but food was quite nice but expected a little more for the price. However understand the poor service as they were understaffed but waiting a long time for an order to even go through then waiting again for the food to come.

Great friendly service. Interesting and different food, especially the Caribbean breakfast [new to us].
Ideal out door venue as covered over and overlooks a body of water AND in the sunshine.
it was someone's birthday and two lovely people/staff came out singing Happy Birthday with a marvellous and fresh fruit covered cheese cake and candle. beyond the call of duty. Breakfast - clean interesting and no excess fat. eggs done to a turn
All in all the restaurant cannot be faulted
