Lots of variety

We visited Jeff for lunch on Thursday. The place was packed, and we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table to become available. I would say that it was worth the wait. There was a lot selection of choices, including a delicious soup, sushi, salads, and several entrée choices both local and... read more

I visited Jaffa today for the first time because it was doing great on trip advisor reviews! I must say the reviews had my expectations set too high because this restaurant would not even fall in my top 30 places to eat in Port of Spain. My family and I went for their brunch, and my kids could not find... More

I had lunch here as a pre birthday celebration along with a friend who had been here previously and absolutely raved about this place. Jaffa really lived up to the high expectations I had and then some. This is truly one of the best dining experiences hands down in Trinidad and Tobago and I would recommend it to anyone. I... More

A great place for a party of 20. Private room. Everyone enjoyed themselves from a varied buffet to suit all. Nice selection of seafood salads. English club atmosphere. Come again.

Went to a catered dinner there 2 weeks ago. Great service. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Plus there was a roast beef I wish I could have brought back with me :) Everything was delicious!

Our management team had lunch at this restaurant. It was a buffet style setting but value for your money couldnt get better than this....especially with over 6 types of sushi, salads, soups. The main course was epic and the dessert choices were over the top. The service was exceptional. The general ambience was totally lovely. Perfect place for any celebration... More

My wife and I visited Jaffa for brunch. The wide variety of very tasty food, excellent service in a warm and inviting environment, was more than I had expected from a restaurant in Trinidad. We'll definitely be back, again and again. Hats off to Joe and Team for making our visit a most memorable one.

We have often had lunch at Jaffa, but with their addition of sushi on Fridays with their new sushi person, it is even more fantastic
