Describing this place in some words is not enough... you gotta come to feel a piece of the caribbean in Santa Ana, close of everything. Love being here with my family, friends and business meetings... I can't tell you how the food tastes. I love the seafood here and my sister how is vegeterian has no problem with the veggie... More

A nice getaway that gives you the feeling of being on the east coast. Quaint building, friendly staff and owners and Caribbean-flair food that takes you away from the hustle & bustle of everyday and puts you on the beach! An absolute pleasure.

Caribbean Food - as good as it gets! The Caribbean Camarones with Rice and Beans was absolutely perfect. A great blend of those flavors and spices that you only find in a good Caribbean Restaurant. The one downside of our visit of 9 people was the curry shrimp pasta could have used a little more curry flavor I found it... More

, The food was great, I had some rice with plenty of sea food, tasty, tender, good size. But, I guess we were not lucky and there were many kids (5 to 10 yrs) running all over the place, screaming every where and so it was not very pleasant.

This reminded us of delicious meals we had on the Caribbean coast - wonderful chicken and shrimp dishes with great texture and flavor. Great service, as well. This would be a good place for kids - there are toys and the atmosphere is really relaxed. Just off the beaten path and nestled into a little jungle yard area. Good prices.... More

This was a great way to spend our first night in Costa Rica! Starving after a long flight and anxious to get our vacation started, our friends took us here shortly after our arrival. It did not disappoint! The appetizer plate was fantastic, our food was ample and absolutely delicious, and we enjoyed more than a few ice cold beers... More

We were looking for the amazing afro-caribe flavours we loved on the Caribbean coast in the San Jose area and this restaurant was recommended to us. It lived up to all the great things we had heard. Very much a family restaurant, with both a play room and an outdoor playground. The food was excellent and I must learn how... More

We had a very good meal at this restaurant, I will DEFINITELY go back. It is a Caribbean theme, I had the jerk chicken. It was really tasty. They brought a great appetizer on the house, little cups of fried platano with different fillings. The wine was good- certainly not the best selection, but it worked for our group. Setting... More

I have been here three or four times and each time the food was outstanding. You get excellent value for your money and the flavors cannot be beat. From the agua sapo - caribbean ginger ale, the patacones, the coconut rice and beans, you just want to moan with delight. We are so lucky there is excellent caribbean food in... More
