Don't visit the Jewellery Quarter without also coming here

Make a point to seek out this family run restaurant and you will not be disappointed. Although it is tucked away between jewellery shops down an alley, it is well worth making the effort to find it. Very friendly staff and delicious Caribbean food.

Visited Saturday 4th April with my girlfriend for our 7 year anniversary, was in the mood for Caribbean cuisine but didn't want to wait 1.5 hrs for a table with all the noise and rowdy cocktail drinkers (...Turtle Bay!) Managed to park for free (after 6) right outside the restaurant which is located in the Jewelry Quarter near the St.... More

My wife and I found this little marvel through Trip Advisor, and booked a table for one of the Caribbean by Candlelight evenings. From the moment we walked in we were treated like old friends by the 2 sisters who work there, and felt relaxed amongst the intimate, candle-lit setting. Kelly is pregnant, so she opted for a rum free... More

My wife had a a really good meal at this restaurant and booked it when we visited Birmingham next with friends. This can be a risk but we were in no way disappointed. There is an excellent range of both English and Caribbean dishes. The problem is choosing. The food is freshly prepared and is really good. The service is... More

Excellent Caribbean food. It's a little on the small side, but that added to its character (10 or so tables). Friendly "brummie" service very attentive. Good rum punches. Clean toilet across the alley - just take the key with a paving slab attached as a reminder to hand it back before leaving!

For starters we had the mixed platter and the coconut prawns whic were really good. For mains we had jerk chicken and jerk pork and for those that don't like it too spicy the sauce is served on...

This place is fabulous! Great location up an alley way, I felt like I was back in Paris. Homely decor which added to the welcoming atmosphere. Wonderful service from a gracious host and beautiful home cooked food at a reasonable price. I had the curry goat and it was delicious...soft, tender meat that melted in my mouth. Amazing find and...
