Description: At Morgan’s Mango, we try to reflect the life of the islands, a place of dazzling light and color, tropical breezes and starry nights, a relaxed and sensory experience.Joining us, to share in the culinary history of an island world crowded with so many wonderful cultures that it takes your breath way. Our food covers many Caribbean and South American cuisines—Creole, Bahamian, Cuban, Jamaican, Haitian, Puerto Rican, Argentinian and Mayan. All of these cuisines have been influenced by the original inhabitants of the islands, the Arawak and Carib Indians, as well as the Africans, East Indians and Chinese who arrived later. Add to these the foods of the Spanish, French, British and Danish settlers, and you have an incredible melting pot of ethnic and classic cuisines.Hence Cuisines of the Caribbean, a neo-Caribbean experience conveying the juice and jazz of the islands, a carnival of flavors and lifestyles.

Great food for a fair price (on the island anyway), great atmosphere. Very accommodating even though we didn't have a reservation. Music was very nice.

Thank you Morgan's Mango for helping us out with a last minute Thanks Giving Dinner reservation. They squeezed us in for Thanks Giving as we found out on the day we arrived which was Tuesday that our dinner reservations at another restaurant had to cancel for unfortunate circumstances which we found out later was really out of the other restaurants...

Last night of our stay went to MM. Great environment and food. Highly recommend Caribbean ceviche and the pork...like no other I have had. Marinated in ginger and sugar cane for 24 plus hours. Ashley was great.

Originally, we decided to try Morgans because of the vegetarian platter, since two in our group were vegan. We ended up loving the atmosphere, the friendly service, the cocktails, and of course, the food. We requested a table near the back, away from the live music, so we could converse comfortably, and were happily seated at a great table. The... More

Excellent service, ditto organisation considering the overwhelming number of guests. We are happy that we made a reservation. The food is delicious, and Hurricane Marilyn 1995 suits spicy food.

This place was recommended to us by local taxi driver. It was very good suggestion. Service and ambiance were highlights of our dinning. The waiter was very friendly, explained the menu and specials really well and was able to serve drinks not listed on the wine list. Nice touch! We ordered Crab & Lobster Cakes as our appetizer.
