Delicious Local Food

Had same meal twice, that is how good it was. Had authentic Haitian food, not Haitian light for tourist. Fresh cooked vegetables, good pikliz, delicious rice and beans, banan and poisson boukanen.

We just visited Kay Atizan to visit their store to buy some Haitian pieces. They had such a great selection! Our whole family found Haitian treasures. Then we went to the restaurant for lunch and had the BEST Haitian food. I had the lambi and it was amazing. The service was great and the atmosphere was so fun. I would... More

Lots of great items to choose from. Beautiful gallery. Something for every pocket book. We decided to eat at the restaurant as well, and it was wonderful./

Super cute setting. Service people seemed to be overwhelmed most of the time, not overly friendly as always too busy. Very tiny and lots of tables, so not much wiggle room. A little pricy for the food since there are often shortages of the main dishes at the buffet. Worth a visit.

Went to Kay Atizan with a friend for a weekday lunch. Large menu, multiple specials, fresh seafood, and prices on-par with good-quality Petionville restaurants. Kay Atizan houses not just a restaurant but an art gallery and excellent (though pricey) souvenir shop. It's a must-go for visitors to Petionville in my eyes.

The food was good. It took a while to come out but it was worth the wait when it came. The artisanal shop was unfortunately closed when we got there for dinner. The owner came over and chatted up our group. He seemed really nice.

This is a restaurant that is attached to a great shop for buying Haitian arts and crafts. We both had lambi creole (conch in sauce). It was cooked just right and the sides were very good. I don't remember the last time I had lambi that was this good. I will definitely return to this restaurant to try some of... More

I actually loved Kay Atizan, Not easy to find the place especially with the roads in Haiti. Nevertheless the price seemed a bit high but compared to other places they were around 25% less. A lot of there products were very hard to find and are only found there. Tabacco leaf Bolls, small bags with beads etc. i love the... More
