This restaurant is fantastic!

My husband and I had lunch here. Both of us had the curry chicken and it is fabulous!!! The serving was HUGE! It was at least half of a chicken served with a type of rice. The chicken absolutely melted in our mouths! We had a "rum and Pepsi", as well as water. The waitress was very attentive... read more

A wonderful restaurant and bar. The food is fresh and very tasty. Lots of nice drinks too. Don't pass up the chance to visit the popular spot just off Main St.

My wife and I ate at this restaurant last week during a Caribbean cruise. It is hard to find down a small alleyway but worth the effort. We were only able to eat a snack there because of limited time. But the conk chowder was so good we wanted to write a review. We also got conk fritters and while... More

This is the place to go for lunch if you're in downtown Charlotte Amalie. The food is fresh, delicious and offers a taste of native Caribbean favorites. Plus, it's very reasonable. Loved it.!

This is a great place for lunch. Nice atmosphere in the old warehouse area of St. Thomas. Not easy to find but worth the effort to go there. The food was very good and the service was great. I had the Mahi-Mahi sandwich, very tasty with Glady's hot sauces, there are quite a few to pick from..

Went due to the recommendation of the desk clerk at our hotel, and it was worth the stop. I had the French toast, cooked perfectly, and very tasty. My husband had the ham and cheese omelet, night and fluffy. The waitresses helped each other and were attentive to the customers.

I was here about 4 years ago a local told us about this restaurant and let me tell you, the food is just simply amazing. We felt right at home, its not a far walk from the shopping district and you walk through an alleyway to the restaurant, the drinks are excellent and the store owner is amazing. I brought... More

This place has been raved about since we got here so I had to try. We waited 10 min for our waiter to get our drinks. Food came out fairly quickly. I ordered the Oxtail and it was good, kind of bland. My friend ordered the cheddar burger and it was, well, a cheeseburger. The diner has so much potential... More
