What a great meal the experience exceeded my expectations. The oxtails were amazing as well as the jerk chicken. From the owner to the hostess to the server everyone was so friendly and personable. I’ll definitely be back.

Tonight was our first time here. Wonderful family operated restaurant with outstanding food and service. Extremely comfortable and very relaxing. Family couldn’t have been more helpful with our choices and sauces. Really top notch and we look forward to returning.

What a gem! We vacation in the area and eat out every night for a month. We will absolutely be coming back next year. The owner and staff asked if we were first timers and went out of their way to make us comfortable. An assorted appetizer was suggested to give us a variety of the chicken dishes. Hot sauce was on the side so we could judge our level of twice. It was delicious. My husband had ribs and they were spectacular. My salmon was well prepared. We had boiled dumplings and fried plantains. No room for dessert. Definitely recommend.

Service was amazing, food was very good. Jerk chicken could have been a bit spicier, but coco bread was on point.

Ordered the waitress picks but found oxtail stew and goat curry to be mediocre quality and the side dumplings so dense they were not edible.

This restaurant is excellent but there are many very good Caribbean/Jamaican food restaurants in that area that cook the same food almost as well for HALF the price! Their Red Snapper was $30!!! Delicious but I can get that a lot cheaper at Judy's, Coconuts, Donna's, Jerk Machine etc etc.

What a great find! Casual and homey with true Jamaican flavor - you might feel like you're actually in the islands! A fantastic and varied menu offering all your Carribean favorites - plantains, jerk anything (from fish to french fries), delicious curry and fresh fish! Loved our waiter, Morgan, and the rest of the "family" who made sure our experience was authentic and enjoyable!

I visited this place a couple of years ago and thought the food was great. For some reason I didn't get back there again until just a few days ago. The menu was full of a nice variety of both spicy and not so spicy things to eat. The service was attentive but not annoying and I was able to get a cup of fresh brewed Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee after dinner. Fabulous!

I would have liked to give this place 5 stars because the food was great. However, the service was awful. We waited almost an hour for our food to come out, and when it did, only part of my meal came out. My main dish, which was shrimp, arrived with no sides. The server said my sides, which was rice and plantains, would be out right away. Unfortunately, the sides did not make it to the table until after I had finished my shrimp. Not the best way to enjoy your meal. Like I said earlier, this is unfortunate, as the food was really good. I noticed a lot of take out orders being processed. Maybe this is the way to go with this place, just make sure your order is correct.

This is the 2nd time I have eaten there. Once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times it was exceptional! Food was fabulous both times. One of the best restaurants I have enjoyed since moving to Florida two years ago. Food is delicious. Staff is fun without being all over you. Restaurant is adorable! We all got something different and shared. Loved everything. Jerk chicken, jerk shrimp, ribs, salmon...the sides were excellent too!
