The food here was absolutely outstanding, I'll definitely be back!
Took my dad and Bro to visit they loved it. The Rum flights are a must try. Music and hosts were wonderful and it’s a must return for me and anyone trying to find somewhere Caribbean to call a new home
Food is always amazing and the staff were very welcoming! Felt like home.
Food was delicious and great portions.
Amazing staff as well and topped with fantastic music made for a memorable night :)
Was delicious as always. The speaker was right above us and the staff were very good at trying to keep the music down. But the server said it’s an old system and the volume control is touchy. But certainly did not ruin the evening. So nice to be back there.
My girlfriend and I loved everything about this restaurant. Friendly service, high quality authentic tasting food and a great vibe. Some of the best food and one of our favourite new date spots.
Great food ambiance and vibe. Definitely would recommend this restaurant to family and friends 2 thumbs up and a full belly!
Honestly one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver. Outstanding food and service. Black owned and serving it up right. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Amazing place and food. The drinks are a must here.
Had a great time!! Great food, awesome music and just a good vibe.
Great customer service and it's a good value for the quality of food you get. Thumbs up for their cocktails!
It was such a great experience, but obviously in such a sketchy neighborhood!
Excellent food, great selection of rum and good music.
I’ve been meaning to go here for a while and glad I finally did. We tried a few cocktails which were tasty and refreshing. The oxtail and jerk chicken were so good. Will definitely be back and would definitely recommend!
We love this place !!! Best EVERYTHING! Staff was wonderful
I've visited here many times over the years and has never been disappointed. But the first time after the dine in restrictions lift was a great experience. My girlfriends & myself had a blast with the DJ weekend music & the most awesome Caribbean food & drinks! I loved the oxtail brisket mix burger. Usually my go to is the oxtail platter. But you need to try everything in the menu. Lol! I switched salad over fries for the meal. Coconut dumplings are a must! Service is really good! Please support them to keep their business going.
The outdoors of the restaurant is not as desirable but the inside is totally awesome!
Upon arrival our table was ready. They were welcoming and attentive.
Tables are well space out, maintaining Covid protocol.
Their was a sudden leak from a pipe. The staff dealt with the matter efficiently and professionally, moving us to another table which was also reserved. One of appetizers ordered was offered to us complimentary which we appreciated.
Everyone enjoyed their meal and look forward to returning soon.
I highly recommend this space, for the food and the vibe inside.🙏
The location might throw you off but once you’re inside you forget about the outside!
Amazing food, service was great, drinks were really fresh and they had a Dj playing great throwbacks! Was a bit hard to talk downstairs cause it was a bit too loud, but still the vibe was great!
Good food, great service, we had the veggie poutine, jerk chicken, and chicken roti. All was delicious, and portion sizes were generous. I'd recommend.
Always good vibes at Calabash. Good food, good music, and amazing drinks!
Celebrated my 30th birthday!
Amazing food and is a total hidden gem! The mango dumplings were to die for.
Loved it here, food and service was great. One tiny thing - just too loud on the music. It got really hard to hear each other near the end of our meal and we were glad that it was near the end... just a thought as everything else is really rockin'!
Food was really good .the workers are super friendly .
The food is very good, it's a fun spot to hang out, catch the Dj downstairs. Or just dine.
The jerk chicken was really not to my liking as a jamaican descent..
Friendly and efficient service! The waiters give you space and are on it when you need something. Such good food!
Great food, atmosphere and servers!!! Definitely recommend!!
Family dinner out
Great food, will be back! Great portion for price, all satisfied. Vegan special was a great choice!
The cocktails were fabulous - we especially recommend the Dark and Stormy. The coconut dumplings and vegan special were sublime. We lived in the Caribbean for 2 years and eating here brought back so many memories.
This was a great first experience. Wonderful food and atmosphere. Will definitely be back!
We had a noisy table so they moved us and comp’d our dessert! Great service! The food is delicious!
Food was great. Service was great.
Excellent experience all around!
Never a let down attending this spot. My favourite place to go with an amazing vibe of music and food. Great experience!
Excellent food, service and price. Really cool interior design too. Would definitely recommend.
Great vibe - even during Covid.
Can’t wait to go back when we can dance!!
Best vibes & soul food in town !! Highly recommend !
