This was one of my favorite spots. On my last visit, it was very disappointing. The menu had changed along with the staff and the service was poor. After being seated and waited for 15 minutes for a server, we decided to leave. The previous manager is now at Cascadia and he was all about customer service and was great... More

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. The initial service was fine, 2 servers, drinks fairly quick, but the food orders took almost 2 hours. The food was acceptable, 1 steak was so overdone you could have... More

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.

Nice bar, very central, clearly popular with tourists and visitors. Had some decent and very reasonably priced fried fish. Came with a smile

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
