Don't let the rustic little shack turn you off. Joyclyn is putting out some excellent food. The location right on the waterfront is very relaxing if you ignore all the garbage washed up on shore. The day we went for lunch, Joyclyn was working by herself, so things were a little slow, but worth waiting for. One of her local... More

Joycln has great local food at great prices. Had the lobster curry and loved it. And of course the view is one of the best in Punta Gorda!

Not only is the view beautiful and the owner a wonderful friend, the food is out of this world. If you are looking for authentic Jamaican Jerk chicken, you've found the place to visit. Our group of 19 visited twice during our stay in PG. The second time we ate there, Joycln searched high and low for fresh lobster for... More

This was my first and last lunch in Punta Gorda. Always loved coming here for quick service, large helpings, the best stewed beans in town, and always a smile from Ms. Joycln. I highlighy recommend!

Joycln can cook. See really took care of our team when we visited PG. She cooked it all, boxed it all up, and delivered to the arena for us(we had a long, overtime game). We had jerk chicken and BBQ chicken, and both were great. We'll definitely be calling her again.

This small restaurant with a new back porch on the water at Punta Gorda has great food. The jerk chicken was prepared just for us by Joclyn when we missed it the first day. She really knows how to grill snapper as well. We had really great meals here three times and loved every bite. Nice place to meet fellow... More

Joycelys' Cusine is just a shack on the Caribbean with a recently added back deck and more seating. But the food is outstanding. Joycelyn is outgoing and personable. Like many fresh food restaurants in the area the menu is limited, but always fresh. We missed her jerk chicken one day and she made it just for us the next evening.... More

What a great location, right in front of the pier, and it's where a lot of locals eat. Always a good sign to me. When I got there I placed my order, being next to the sea, with fish of course. Joycelyn told me it would take 10 minutes which was fine, nobody was chasing me. I told her I... More

I liked the portions, the taste & the cost. Not really a dislike, but she would accommodate more customers if she was inside a building. Eating outside is chic...eating area is right next to the road & across the street from the Texaco gas station.

Joyclyn serves up fantastic local dishes, all freshly cooked in her shack located right next to the municipal dock overlooking the Gulf of Honduras. Offerings include fried fish; jerk chicken and jerk or baked pork. Dishes are served with delicious sides such a rice and beans or homemade potato salad or coleslaw, all for less than $5 US.
