We keep returning year after year. The same Cook making Lovely creole food. Always very fresh, Always very well cooked. Not at all a fancy Place but that doesn't matter because the food is so good. A wide variety of dishes are offered and we have tried most of them. Come here !

After reading the reviews on these pages, expectations were high. Mo's exceeded all expectations and was simply superb. The fresh fish and vegetable dishes cooked Caribbean-style were delicious. This is a no frills, no nonsense eatery where the staff were pleasant and accommodating. Reservations are recommended.

About a 15 minute walk east on Truman off Duvall street, then a block or so south. Diner atmosphere. We had the Caribbean chicken and the shrimp pasta (spicy, but not really). Both were superb, with huge portions we took away with us. Rice and beans accompanied the entrées. Complimentary pumpkin or Key Lime pie. Very friendly and cheerful waitress.

i was intrigued when i saw casseroles on the menus, so i ordered the shrimp casserole. who would ever guess that bowtie pasta, shrimp, cream sauce and cheese would taste so amazingly delicious? A large portion too. Everyone in our party really enjoyed their food. All plates left the table empty. We ordered a key lime pie to go and... More

We stopped here mid-week for a late lunch (around 2:00) after reading all the great reviews. Service was slow and we were the only 2 customers in the place. I had the chicken with black beans and rice; the chicken was dry, overcooked and had several small pieces of bone. The black bean sauce was tasty but contained few black... More

Great food and the owners are really friendly. Authentic Caribbean food, we both had the creole chicken with black beans and rice. Great flavors, very fresh. Thought we were back in the islands...except not eating outside with sand in our toes! The best, give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

This restaurant is very casual, but the food is delicious. We had the chicken and oxtail and finished with an amazing key lime pie. I would highly recommend this place for a casual, budget friendly meal.
