“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I was really looking forward to coming here for lunch but wasn't quite as good as I remembered from a cruise stop about five years ago. First the server was rude. Second the "jerk" chicken wasn't quite hitting the mark. It was all just ok Caribbean food. Will be searching out a new local favorite next time I visit there.

“Go for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We asked the locals where was the best spot to grab lunch in town? A sweet older gentleman told us about Cuzzin's - sid they made the best jerk chicken - he was right. We had a delicious lunch - jerk chicken wraps. Our waiter recommended some local soft drinks too - we had a yummy mango drink and a tamarind drink (non-alcoholic) that were refreshing and complimented the chicken well. Cute place.

“Good local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

After shopping we stopped in for lunch. We enjoyed the Jerk chicken wrap. Nice Caribbean decor, good service. Enjoyed one of their specialty drinks. Nice change from the food on the ship.

“Walk to the back street is worth the effort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

The authentic Caribbean chow at Cuzzin's is consistent and dependable fare for the weary traveler who couldn't get enough to eat on a ship. After the long trip from the mainland, our party trudged all the way to a taxi that let us off near the jewelry stores. Following hours of grueling shopping, it was time to settle back for an afternoon feast of a seafood platter and delicious conch chowder. The staff is patient and kind to those who were cranky until the first round of drinks lighten the mood. Good food, that's what keeps us coming back.

“A good change”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

A change from the "pub grub" burgers and fries that seem to be everywhere on the island. The mutton stew was tasty. We felt this was a bit less tourist and bit more Island though the crowd was just tourist...
