This is a casual quick restaurant where you order first and then take a seat. The traditional foods are a cheesy potato/corn casserole, rice, green salad and barbecue pork, chicken or fish. Their curry hot sauce is fiery, but good. The service is simple and the open air restaurant was the perfect spot for lunch.

I like the food and the ambience. I would visit there again. I don't like how it was close to the road.

This is an outdoor restaurant on a very busy and noisy street. A large group of us were there on a Friday night, around 6:30, and were the only patrons.

Though I only dined here on one occasion, I recall the fish and chips being a great meal. The atmosphere is also good for lunch meetings or simply catching up with friends.

My husband and I stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. The server explained that since it was Sunday the menu was limited then proceeded to tell us our choices. I had the BBQ chicken, callaloo (sp?), and green salad. Everything was wonderful, especially once I added a bit of the hot sauce provided. My husband had the green salad, callaloo,... More

We went to this restaurant for dinner after a reference from one of the residents of Trinidad. The food isn't Delicious, however the price was okay, so it was worth it. We ordered the fish and chips, and chicken and chips. The fish was freshly made, however, the chicken was lukewarm, which made it not that enjoyable. I commented to... More

Great seafood joint on Ariapita Avenue. The seafood creole is great stuff. The bartender is good for chatting to and makes some lovely drinks if asked to make off the menu.
