“Great time!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

If you're in the Gros Islet area on a Friday night, this is the place to be!! Travel by taxi is easy and quick both from and to your resort.

“Great Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Visited in June 2013. Great atmosphere with VERY loud music, drinks, food and dancing. Understand it goes on until 4am - two hours was enough for us but well worth the trip.

“Not a bad Friday night lime, a little commercial, but safe enough if you are careful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Street dancing, crowds, roadside drinks, etc, with a ( small ) number of pushers offering faked drugs, a "Cuban" cigar seller wandering around with some dubious "Havana " cigars and some "commercial" looking and calculating local girls ( and probably some boys ) for hire. Friday night is the big night, as it is in most of the Caribbean.

Its a place mainly for tourists and if you go, take it all with a pinch of salt but watch your surroundings and possessions ( ideal place for pickpockets ) , don't carry or wear too much fancy stuff or look too affluent, don't get falling down drunk or you will be an easy victim, but otherwise enjoy it. Having said that I was with around 40 street - wise Trinidadians who pretty much took it over and I live in the Caribbean so I know the score. Yes there is some security but look after yourself , however its probably less edgy than it initially looks, so don't be scared away. Its the sort of place you probably go to once and with some friends, and the next Friday you find something better to do.

The small restaurant in a wooden chattel house just down a side street from the main crossroads, The Golden Taste, has been highly recommended and we chatted with the chef / owner who is very pleasant.

“friday night out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Event was just as described where tourists mix with the locals eating and drinking the local fare.Did not enjoy the food that much as it was too cold. The vendors need to have food warmers.

“Enjoyed every bit of it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Loved the people, atmosphere, dancing, freedom. Love it all. I enjoyed the fact that police was also present so there was a great sense of security.
