This small, family run business offers the best caribbean food you will eat outside of the caribbean! True, you probably will have to wait a little while for your food... but remember, this is authetic caribbean family cooking. Personally I would rather wait a while, feeling welcome and relaxed, knowing i have the table all night and great food on... More

A group of us had dinner here, and the food was excellent. A few of the group were nervous about spicy food, but the food was to everyone's taste. The owner is a fantastic host and made us feel welcome, like long lost friends. There was a slight mix up with my order (two dishes sound the same!) but I... More

Carib Grill looks a bit rundown from the outside but a warm welcome is given when you go in. The food was fine the quality good but we did experience too long a wait before our order for drinks was taken. Caesar salad was suggested as an accompanying dish but this was not needed as exactly the same salad and... More

Went here on a Groupon offer with a group of friends which actually wasn't that much of a good deal. We had the sharing platter which was totally unimpressive and I could buy food of this standard in Iceland. The drinks arrived 20 minutes after food which we couldn't understand as the restaurant wasn't busy at this time. We were... More

Hey Lisa, Sorry we disappointed you on your visit. I don't know the reason for your combo starter arriving before the drinks but can only assume that as you were on a Groupon voucher the order went to the kitchen immediately for the combo. In the meantime the waiting staff may have been distracted by other customers arriving and did... More

I visited this restaurant with a friend in July. My friend had a voucher offer. We were seated almost straight away and given menus. It was mid week busy on arrival although most tables were already eating. 45 minutes later our order was taken. It took a further 20 minutes for the drinks to arrive. The waitress then took the...

Hey toni15, It would appear to me that there was a total breakdown in communications here. For this I sincerely apologise. What you have described is so out of line with our operational mode. I can only assume that as it was busy the waitress assumed another had dealt with your table. This is no excuse and we feel disappointed... More

Amazing food. Curry Goat was cooked just right, very generous portions also. Service was fast and all the staff were extremely friendly.

After discovering the Turtle-bay chain I found a taste for Caribbean food , I went to Carib Grill for a meal with the Mrs . We spotted a deal on Groupon and gave it a try. The man, front-of-house was really friendly. He took time to explain the different options on the menu. The mixed started platter was fantastic. I... More

My wife and I went on a Groupon voucher with a rum punch each and a sharing platter. The rum punch was delicious, and the platter had a good variety of tasty morsels. We then decided to share a goat curry. The goat curry was very tasty, but there was not much of it! Also, the portion of rice was... More

Hey Gobinder, Thanks for the review on TripAdvisor. You did leave me a bit puzzled however because you said it wasn't value for money although you came on a Groupon voucher with a 53% discount. You also said that you shared a Goat Curry and "The goat curry was very tasty, but there was not much of it! Also, the... More

I had never eaten Caribbean food before, everything me and my family of 8 ate was delicious, the staff were so friendly, it isn't expensive but it's also not cheap, but every penny is well deserved. I would particularly recommend the jerk chicken or the sea bass!
