I've tried Sunday brunch....delicious...easy dinning, lots of choices... Their guava panna cotta desserts is AMAZING! Had Wednesday afternoon tea buffet and found it "nice"... Not great but good enough. The choices were a little boring for the price, however the guava panna cotta was once again present and I ate a few!! Delicious! Both visits for me were self service...

We met some friends and went for Sunday brunch but it was not what we expected. After having our salad, we then explored the main course where the food was laid out buffet style. While we perused the menu for the main course, the food combination was not as expected. There was veil, and some other meats that one would... More

The buffet had a lot of options and they were all quite tasty. Very warm staff and the ambience was also very nice. The starters and main were all really good, but the desserts were the pinnacle of the experience. Very delicious array of sweets. I would definitely go again.

Went with family and friends. Large group. Great service and location. The buffet had variety and tasted excellent. We had salmon for starters and as an Norwegian I must say it vas perfectly cooked. Lots of choices of vine, champagne and drinks. This high class restaurant should remember to change their light boulbs. Other than that excellent food and service.

Jaffa's is great for afternoon tea, or lunch with business partners, friends or the one you love. There is a wide array of food from soup for starters and then sushi, heavenly salads and then fusion-American-Caribbean food. There is a wide assortment of desserts, which could be nicer, but they are not too bad. The staff is well trained and... More

This is still the best lunch value in Trinidad. The food has maintained a high standard and you get proper bang for buck....and that's hard to find in Port of Spain now

I visited this restaurant with friends. The menu items were varied and there was excellent balance between sweet and savoury items. The ambiance is nice and the servers friendly. My only complaint is that some of the savoury items were a bit too salty for my liking.

I had lunch here and all I can say is OMG the food is excellent! I enjoyed all the courses from the pumpkin soup right down to the buffet desserts. The options for vegetarians and persons not on the chicken and other meat diets were many. The wait staff was very attentive and the ambience was relaxing enough to enjoy... More

Great service and atmosphere with comfortable seating. Wide selection of quality, delicious foods gives you great value for your money! Definitely above average buffet in taste and variety - one of the best in Trinidad. Highly recommended. Four stars instead of five because I think the hot lunch selection can use a little improvement, though still good. -- Jaffa has... More
