“Evening Extravaganza.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

I give Del-Mel an A+++. I have traveled to the Caribbean since 1966. Pauline knows the cuisine of the Cayman Islands as well as Jamaica. Jerk chicken and pork was excellent. She wouldn't give me a taste of her 'curried goat'...cause she said I had to come back to try it. Please try this fine establishment. Pauline actually sat with us and discussed 'Grand Cayman' in the better days. Be sure to ask for 'hot sauce'...Pauline makes it herself. IRIEEE'..

“Bringing Jamaica to the mainland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

My husband and I have fond memories of trips to Jamaica, and this restaurant was a treat that brought us the wonderful taste of the island. We both had the delicious jerk chicken and were delighted with the food, service, and the atmosphere... All of which were authentic. The woman behind the counter was a joy. We'll definitely be back next time we visit Naples!

“Fun and different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This sweet little out of the way spot is like a brief escape to the Carribean. I had jerk chicken which came with rice and a fried plantain and cabbage. With sweet tea. It was all tasty, and the lady behind the counter was filled with good humor. Try something different!

“Our favorite restaurant in Naples!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We stumbled onto Del-Mel by accident and what a treat! Our family of 5 all agreed it was one of the best things we did while in Naples. It is a small, charming, very casual family owned restaurant and the food is unreal! Mel, one of the owners came out and explained to us what we were eating and how it was made, adding" I cook all my food with love!" We had the rabbit, the jerk chicken, the cabbage and rice-all delicious and interesting to the palate. We also really enjoyed Mel's special sangria! Very well-priced, clean and feels like Jamaica!
