My husband and I have been here each time that he has been to Delray Beach on business. This is a great off the beaten path restaurant. The food is excellent, but the family that owns the restaurant is what brings us back. We particularly love the daughter who has been our waitress the past couple of visits. She has... More

I wish I could write two reviews on Bamboo Fire. To keep a long story short I'll try to summarize. The Appetizers were absolutely great. Both the meatballs and conch fritters were to die for. The entree's were a little less than amazing, but still okay. My coconut shrimp were disappointing due to the portion, 4 shrimp for $20 was... More

Celebrated with friends, and it was so delicious! We shared a variety of items, and everything was good! Have to mention the conch fritters, the best I've ever had!

Looking for something unique? Try Bamboo Fire Cafe. Don't expect your food to come out fast, it is cooked to order. Beverly has a way of cooking delicious Caribbean dishes that you will love.

After a few weeks in Fl, I was delighted to get some spicy food. An understated low key restaurant of the Beaton track in delray. A good mixture of jerk and curried dishes available with spice levels to suit. ( Caribbean hot is really spicy. I loved it) Would recommend for great food in a laid back atmosphere. Yeah mon.

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

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
