Caribbean
Traditional meets modern in this new age Caribbean cuisine restaurant brought you by Chef Tavel Bristol-Joseph of E&R Hospitality Group.

Named after the Canje pheasant, national bird of Guyana, Canje pulls inspiration not just from mainland Guyana, but from Jamaica to Puerto Rico, and all the islands in between. Our menu explores the cooking techniques, ingredients, and many expressions of vibrant food across the region.

Tucked away on the east side of Austin, this lively environment brings a unique cocktail program boasting both spirit forward and fruit driven cocktails and a small selection of natural wines alongside our inventive food menu.

    Canje was phenomenal as always. Service was a bit slower than usual which was surprising. The pacing of the orders was correct and felt right, however when the entrees came out for the table the jerk chicken was delayed a bit, and then the second order of rice took a bit longer than we would’ve liked. Otherwise, everything was phenomenal.

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at Canje, and I was thoroughly impressed by both the service and the food. The staff were attentive and welcoming, ensuring a delightful experience from start to finish. The jerk chicken was a standout, perfectly seasoned with a harmonious blend of spices that delivered an authentic and flavorful punch. The oxtail empanadas were nothing short of extraordinary—crisp on the outside and bursting with rich, savory filling that left me craving more. And the roti? Simply the best I’ve ever had. Soft, flaky, and ideal for sopping up the delicious sauces, it completed an unforgettable meal. Canje is a must-visit for anyone seeking top-notch Caribbean cuisine and exceptional service.

    Great food. Recommend sitting outside as inside is too loud from the music to have a conversation.

    Outstanding family-style meal. Jerk Chicken with the Roti and curry was so good. The albacore ceviche and taro chip combination was unreal, and the cassaveep ice cream was delicious and so unique. Asked for refills on the taro chips and curry and waitstaff was so hospitable and attentive. We even got a nice extra bit of ice cream for our anniversary. Would highly recommend and will be returning!
