Located in the middle of playa blanco and playa negro, Edith's was a delightful place, with real home cooked nosh, opted for the local jerk fish, which blew our minds, we were eating with tears in our eyes!

Ughh I made the mistake of going here. I regret not looking at the reviews here first. I wanted jerk chicken and the previous posters comments are bang on! I sauce I really liked but my $12 jerk chicken was basically a drumstick. The rice and beans were disgusting they had like dehydrated crawfish in them. The people are nice,... More

We had two meals at Miss Edith's while we were in Cahuita, a breakfast and a dinner and enjoyed both. Service was really friendly and the food was good and very reasonably priced.

Don't expect a quick meal here. The pace was very slow and laid-back and if you're really hungry and needing needing something fast, you will be disappointed. If you are not in a rush and want to enjoy some authentic Caribbean food this is a must. Worth the wait. I tried Ediths BBQ chicken and it was fantastic.

Watered down jerk chicken with barely any meat - and way over priced. Don't recommend this place at all - save your money and go elsewhere.

Food here is incredibly pricey. We tried the fish, but it was *so* dry that it tasted like chicken! We haven't tried the famous rondo or jerk chicken, maybe that is better. The one fish plate (and it wasn't that big!) cost almost 20 bucks.

Found it by chance... Ended up eating dinner there every night I was in Cahuita! Found the jerk chicken the best!

The flavors here were great and just the carribean influences we were looking for. The jerk chicken, the coconut curry with ginger over smoked chicken, the coconut curry with peanut over chicken, and the rondon with smoked chicken all made us smile. I'm generally pretty ambivalent about chicken, but the smoked chicken had me sucking on the bones. We went... More

My wife and I spent part of our honeymoon in Cahuita, and our hotel set us up with reservations at a different local restaurant each night. The hotel owners told us to expect a very traditional, authentic experience, and we ended up having a very pleasant meal. We had garlic and cheese potatoes as an appetizer, which was simple but...
