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

I went to a company event in July 2013. The atmosphere is elegant like any other fine dining establishment.The buffet is good with a wide variety of salads and meat.The taste is very international with some dishes having local flavour.The service could be better and the waitresses pleasant.

I was at a Corporate Event at this establishment recently. Though I was not a part of the organizing Committee (Invitee) I appreciated the layout of the room as it facilitated a "forum" type event. Breakfast: Limited but fine. The young lady who helped at the station was not very courteous. She seemed preoccupied. Lunch: Nice array. In general I... More

It has taken me 7 months to finally have my first meal at Jaffa's and it will definitely NOT be my last. All the things I would want out of my dining experience were there - warm welcoming service, nice amount to choose from in a lunch buffet, everything sampled (did my best to have a tiny bit of everything,...

Jaffa has been serving a lunch buffet for a couple years now that is extensive, tasty and reasonably priced. There is a wide selection of hot foods, salad bar and desserts, and since it is served buffet-style, we can have restaurant quality lunch in less than an hour.

The Buffet selection, presentation and taste of the various items is of a very high standard. Perhaps the best lunch buffet in Port of Spain.
