Excellant service and food

It's located a block off the Main shopping Street. The server was wonderful explaining exactly what each meal was and the service was great. The Jamaican food was some of the best I have had outside of Jamaica

OMG, delish!!!! Our tour guide recommended this spot to us while we were touring St. Thomas. At first glance the restaurant was not impressive by American standards, but if you are familiar with many carribean restaurants they offer a very casual layed back appearance in general. The food was AMAZING!!!! I ordered a chicken patty appetizer which was one of... More

Visited early April. Loved the food and the wait staff very pleasant. We love finding a place that is a little off the tourist trail. This fit the bill. If you love Authentic Jamaican or want to try it, this is the place to go. Should we be in St. Thomas again, we will definitely make this a stop. Nothing... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch and decided to do apps. Loved the coconut shrimp, conch fritters and Jamaican hand pies. Jerk chicken wings were only disappointment. Scrawny and cold. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Good vibes with locals and a few tourists. Nice way to kick back and rest from shopping or tours!

If you love Jamaican food, this is the place to find. There were 6 of us and we were all very happy with our food, the flavor and the abundance of. A few other restaurants were suggested to us, but we chose this one and walked away full and happy.

Met a friend here for lunch, the food was fantastic. I ordered the ginger beer (very spicy and delicious) and the jerk chicken with green bananas, plantain and the cabbage. He ordered the passion fruit juice and the brown stewed chicken with macaroni. Everything was very good and one of the best values in town. Will be back again soon!
