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

Great place, small and intimate. Better to make reservations. They are closed Monday and Tuesday, may open on Sunday for season call first. Ordered off the menu, shrimp curry. Roti and tostones. Everything was great and flavorful. Live music on Saturdays.

Went here after reading other great reviews and those reviews were spot on! This is a family run restaurant - husband and wife both cook, daughter and other family are waiters/servers. The food is Caribbean and spicy and out of this world fantastic. ( They will tone down the spices willingly). Very friendly & fun atmosphere, prices are more than... More

This is a quaint little restaurant. We have walked by it many times and it's always busy. Tried to go once but there was a very long wait. There's only about 15 tables of seating. So we made a reservation the next time and got the table by the bar inside. It's run by a family and they are very... More

Nice little place in Delray. Recommend reservations because it is a little place. This is not a fancy place - quite casual, but teh food is outstanding. I had the Oxtail, my wife had teh jerk grouper, and our friends had pompano. All was amazingly great - heck even the rice was special good. The bar is very limited was... More
