Within walking distance of the Avenue, in the Pineapple Grove neighborhood, is a hidden gem of a restaurant. It is family-owned, and the food is delicious. The only drawback is the size - small, and crowded with tables. But the ambience is wonderful - like you're at a party on the beach with friends on an island. Try the curries... More

The people that work here made us feel very welcome in a way that seemed like they new us for a long time. The food was very good and authentic. I will definitely be going back.

We love little Ma & Pa restaurants where their unique cultures are exposed to the dinning public and Bamboo Fire is that type of place. Located off the main drag, the Caribbean restaurant was very small with about four or five tables inside and four or five tables outside. The appetizers of Chickpeas, fried Conch. Ceviche and spiced meatballs were... More

Found this hidden gem which is a true Caribbean taste in your back yard was truly amazing. The gynormous home made coconut shrimp and tostones with sauces were out of this world. The hogsnapper in coconut milk with veggies and jerk chicken was very tasty. If you can hold your alcohol don't miss the rum cake. The service was a... More

I had dinner here tonight. The food was fine but the service was extremely slow. It took 2 hours to get the main course. The waitress was rude and acted like she did not want to be there.

We were in the mood for something new and this place grabbed our attention with lots of good reviews. The high expectations have been met. The goat was tasty, my jerk pork was melting in the mouth and the array of spices to compliment any meal was second to none. Note to the winos: the corkage fee is $15 and... More
