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

A group of my colleagues and I recently headed over to Jaffa's for lunch - it was a first experience for most of us - and we all left quite impressed with the food and experience. First of all, the venue is interesting to say the least. Located in the 'stands' of the Queen's Park Oval, one side of the... More

Visited for a lunch with friends. Ideal choice for a party including vegetarians and those with dietary restrictions. Guaranteed to be sufficient choice as Jaffa's lunch buffet comprises a variety of main dishes , salads , sushi, soups , and desserts. These vary but all have one thing in common. The dishes are creative and exceptional. Examples - roasted garlic... More
