Mouth dancin with flavors.

A very small restaurant serviced by a lovely family. Mom in the kitchen creates wonderful Caribbean cuisine. Jerk chicken was delish. My husband had the fresh fish curry, he was ummming through the meal. Be prepared for some strong spice. The plantains were fab. We will return.

My husband and I eat here often and love the flavorful food prepared by Beverly and her staff. My husband loves the jerk pork or chicken and I prefer the fresh fish. This is a small family run restaurant. The service is not rushed and you feel like you are on island time. They only serve beer and wine but... More

This little restaurant was very enjoyable. Maybe 6 tables inside and patio seating. Family run, friendly, attentive service. Started with tostinos and eggplant dip. Both delicious! Diner was cracked conch that was good and hog snapper baked inside banana leaves with great seasoning and veges. Hog snapper was excellent. It smells spicy when you walk in but the food was... More

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
