It's a small restaurant with a great easy going atmosphere and friendly staff. Starters were coconut steamed mussels which had a lovely sauce with a very... More

the owner is a great guy and I really wanted to be super positive about his restaurant but sadly some his staff and some of his dishes fall short in every way. Thought long and hard about posting a review because he deserves success, we visited many times hoping things would improve but won't go again. Sorry.

The atmosphere, service and food at Kool Runnings was amazing! The menu had so much choice - both for the adventurous and those that wanted to play it a little safe. I had the jerk chicken with sweet potato - chicken was so tender, literally falling off the bone and the sweet potatoes soft and delicious! Would recommend 100 times... More
