Nice location

I went with friends for lunch. If memory serves me right it was a buffet. The options were varied and good. What stood out was the dessert fare from international to local options such as tamarind and pawpaw (papaya) balls. I would gladly visit again. I want to do tea there as I heard it is great.

Sunday brunch has magnificent multiple options. Both the breakfast menu and the lunch menu are varied, ample and all delicious. The service is spot on and the ambience adds tremendously to the taste buds' temptation. All in all a wonderful culinary experience!

The atmosphere is serene and enjoyable. Sone of the dishes are pretty good while others are somewhat mediocre.

Brunch Buffet is excellent. Good variety of breakfast and lunch . Service was very good.Staff very pleasant and helpful. Dining room is not very large but could accommodate different groups without encroaching on each other. Good value for your money. I have been there several times

The Restaurant food and the service is good. I was not impressed with the desserts at the time. The staff was cordial and approachable. On the opposite side of a hallway there is a lovely birds eye view of the Queens Park Savannah, but only members of the Queens Park Cricket Club are allowed to go into that seated area.

I have been going to Jaffa for approximately 7 years now & I am always blown away by the delectable desserts & decadent meal choices. I don't eat pork or beef, but there are always a lot of other food items to choose from. I have been to Jaffa for Lunches, Dinners & Company Events to name a few occasions.... More

Lovey top notch food and service that matches. The staff were friendly and prompt which I like. Parking is ample and secure, washrooms are clean and modern. Visa and MasterCard friendly cannot comment on the price as my boss picked up the tab.... Thank goodness , I had a great time.
