“Third trip for good reason!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

Coming from St. Thomas we eat here every trip. The food is outstanding and the same with the service. White bean soup is banging good and the menu seems to change frequently. Can't get enough of the plantains, and thinking of moving the 65 miles west. Eat here.

“Absolutely delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Been here twice and would highly recommend it. The white bean truffle soup is a must have! Very friendly staff, fun decor with lots of small dining rooms. Walking distance from La Concha Resort (Condado).

“Our favorite dinner for the whole trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

I highly recommend this place for a fun, casual yet elegant meal. The decor is hip and trendy, but nothing about the place comes off as pretentious.

Every single dish our party of four ordered was as perfect as it gets. Try the soups, their combination of ingredients were both inventive and delicious, as was the ceviche. There was not one entree that was not a fresh and unique combination of Caribbean-American fusion. And, to top things off, the service was impeccable. Our waiter was prompt, attentive, and most importantly, extremely knowledgeable about the menu answering all questions without hesitation and quite capable of providing recommendations when asked. Absolutely perfect.

The food is on the upper end of 'average' in terms of price, but this place is worth every single penny.

“Absolutely Marvelous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Wow! Wow! Wow! Stopped here with my boyfriend for a few drinks since we heard they have a great rum menu and ended up having to be rolled out of the restaurant... Tried the first class rum flight and i have to say it was a little much. 5 diffrent rums at an ounce each... but they all did taste really great. Then to tone it down we ordered apps, the beef turnover and the beef carpaccio. Excellent quality product i have to say. The turnover nice and thick and juicy and the carpaccio, cold and really perfectly sliced with a bit of a crunch because of some potato skin crisps. Then we each had a cocktail. I had a low carb pina colada... pure alcohol martini style but so smooth and yummy. my boyfriend tried a white sangria, a little tart for him but i loved it. Dinner came with a complimentary white bean soup tasteing... (to die for!) But the red snapper and the tuna dishes were equally as good. Dessert was a key lime pie and chocolate mousse. Both sweet and decadent but not overwhelming. Definately extremely pleased with Jam!!
