We had a stop-over here on our cruise and had heard really good things about it so made sure to check it out. It was a little difficult to find as it was down an alley way, but it was worth the look. The food is delicious, and the service was great. We tried the lobster stuffed avocados and the... More

We had the jerk chicken and the avocado stuffed with chicken salad. Both were excellent my jerk chicken was the best I ever had. Well worth making the effort to find and try.

A small bar in a passage that is not easy to find unless someone directs you there. Once there it was great. Beside the best jerk wings we had Caribbean lobster salad on half an avocado. Superb.

Restauarants was very busy with cruise ship passengers. Our waitress was friendly but overworked. My fish special came with jerk spice not the grilled I ordered but was wonderful. Did not come with the plantains I ordered. My husband had the fresh avocado stuffed with lobster salad and conch chowder. He thought the conch chowder he had in the Florida... More

On a search for a roti shop we'd been recommended we found this little place in the small streets of the old town. Not what we were looking for (Ideal), but a good place nonetheless. We had callaloo soup which was excellent, and a chicken roti which I think was very close to the Port of Spain variations. Carib beer.... More
