I loved the unique and relaxing atmosphere - a very small place, but "oh, such a sweet" place". A wonderful family owned, and caring about the food they are preparing for you! You must go there!!

Interesting location beside StB Hotel, small (seating for around 20 I think). Normally I am a little wary of spicy food so when I was told that the jerk chicken was marinated and the level of spiciness could not be changed, I was a little worried. I decided to try it any way and paired it with a Cesear salad... More

Tiny little diner with only 6 tables. Have been here several times now and have not been disappointed. Great jerk chicken and jerk pork. The pulled pork was really tasty if somewhat sweet for my taste. The cassava fries with the garlic sauce are worth having even of your on the strictest diet. Looking forward to trying it the rest...

Our foodies group visited this place twice though I only attended the last visit. Wonderful ribs, great presentation and awesome service. Hidden gem in St. Boniface. I will definitely come again. Nice to see an woman cooking - go girl!

We enjoyed dining at the Purple Hibiscus this summer. It was nice to sit on the outdoor patio on a hot day. We had the rib special and it came with a nice variety of Caribbean veggies. The service was attentive. A nice addition to the St. Boniface restaurant scene.

The foodies were booked here in August and the proud owner (Avee) made sure our foodie experience would be one of a kind, and it was! She had prepared a special menu for us, as well as her regular menu, and she was kind enough to let us sample free morsels from her kitchen. Avee is truly a culinary artist... More

A lucky accident we found this little gem....Once you get past the location, you will be pleased. We were very happy after our first visit, with great flavorful food and friendly family style service. This impression continued to improve with our second and third visits with friends and family!. This is not big budget chain style food which is always... More

The food, the flavours, the spices and the service here are TO DIE FOR!! I love this restaurant. I discovered them a few months ago and have been ADDICTED. I love eating here and when I'm not eating here, I'm craving their food. This is a MUST visit place - off the beaten path, but well worth a try!

We were looking for something different for supper and found it! This tiny (6 tables of 4) restaurant offers Jamaican/ Caribbean style foods to suit every taste. It is located in the St. Boniface Hotel. The restaurant is nicely decorated, the hotel, a bit run down. We were served a light fresh salad to start. Our server explained the dressing... More

Too bad the food and service aren't! I went here with a friend. We were both excited to try a new Caribbean Restaurant. The review in the Free Press was positive, but I've since realized that the Free Press Reviewer and I don't share the same tastes. We arrived at 530 and were seated right away. There was a couple...
