“Best Jamaican Dining Experience in MoBay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Conveniently located, the food and ambiance are always good at the Pelican. Must have the Johnny cakes with ackee and saltfish; the stewed peas and the oxtail. Good service too!!

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

Everything I ate here was delicious: curry goat, ackee and salt fish, stew peas soup, stew peas with pig tail, bread pudding, fried chicken & stewed oxtails. My favorite was the stew peas soup, which is not served everyday. Definitely the place to visit for a consistently good authentic Jamaican meal!
