The moment my family and I walked in, we were greeted by an extremely friendly staff member. He waited on us for the entirety of the meal with great charisma and gave us great recommendations in terms of food and activities to go around town. The food and drinks were extremely flavourful and I would say certainly justify their price!... More

A trip to Papa Flava's was a dining experience, we enjoyed the coconut bread, samosas, coconut shrimp, stir fry, brownie & coconut ice cream. And the best ice tea ever. Each item was delicious. The restaurant had a joyous atmosphere. Bonus, Papa is a world-class raconteur.

I don't think there menu has changed since I first was there 5 or 6 years ago, even the best food can get boring!

Wonderful dining experience for my husband, grand-daughter and I. Newly renovated with great carribean colours. Papa visited our table several times to chat which we enjoyed tremendously. Food was delicious! Excellent service, very clean and friendly. Would highly recommend everyone try this unique carribean experience. So glad we did!

After 3 weeks in USA great to find spicy subtle flavors integrated into the dish rather than tipped in. This is real food prepared by a family who really understand the food and the business. We took the surprise option and let the kitchen choose our starters and mains. Couldn't fault any aspect. Well done and TripAdvisor #1 well deserved.

If you are in Fredericton do not miss this spot! We had a wonderful family meal hosted by a wonderful family. So good to have a home cooked meal while on road. Really enjoyed everything from the ice tea, to the coconut bread and samosas to the wings, curries and chocolate brownies and coconut ice cream. Kids loved it all... More

Tripadvisor didn't point us wrong on this one. Family-run restaurant where they're sincere to every customer with great quality food. Can't wait till they expand next to another dental clinic!

In town on business. Saw this place listed high on Tripadvisor. The reviews were right. This place is fantastic! Nice atmosphere, super friendly people and the food was fantastic. The samosa are great and the lamb is fantastic. Listen to their advise about how hot they can make it because they can. I usually get medium to medium hot, not... More

Went for supper with my hubby, and it exceeded our expectations! Started with the homemade iced tea and carrot and coconut milk smoothie, both where good, smoothie was a little sweet but quiet tasty! Shared the jerk wings, great taste, nice spice but not too hot. I ordered the catch of the day, I was sold as soon as he... More

My family and I stopped off at this great little spot on our way to Nova Scotia. Despite being a little hesitant at first, we were pleasantly surprised with how great it was! It really felt like we were visiting family and the owner and his dad were very welcoming. We're a Haitian family and are pretty picky about restaurants... More
