“Love your food? Love it spicey? This is a must visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Me and my dad visited this place last night, having been recommended by previous guests of the villa we are staying in and seeing it as the number one restaurant in Puerto Del Carmen on here, and I have to say the food exceeded expectation. This was the first time we had experienced Caribbean food, it was fantastic. We both cannot recommend going enough.

We decided to go for the Curried goat and Jerk Chicken from the meat dishes, the Prawns in garlic and Caribbean fish of the day from the Fish dishes, Mushroom stroganoff and Leak with pastry from the Vegetarian dishes, with two sides of rice and peas and Potatoes.

Our favourite dishes would have to be the curried goat, Prawns and the mushroom stroganoff accompanied by the rice and peas!

We recommend making a visit!

“Small friendly restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Doesn't have as many different tapas to chose from as the bigger restaurants around Puerto del Carmen, but the ones they have a are good at a decent price. Very friendly staff.

Would definitely return.

“First class. will certainly go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Went here for my 52nd birthday with my sister and brother inlaw. could not fault the food or the place.lovely atmosphere made very welcome. the goat curry was very spicey, but delicious. we tried quite a few dishes. from the jerk chicken to the prawns and mussels. everyone was lovely. To finish we had the cheesecake which was out of this world. I dont usually write reviews. but found i had to for experience. well worth the money. and will certainly go back when on the island again.

“Excellent Carribean food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

Very impressed over all. Nice menu. Goat curry gravy was particularly nice. Jerk chicken, ribs, chilli prawns all yum! All authentic no ancona etc used here! Excellent friendly service. Looking forward to trying the minted lamb next time. Slightly pricy but i'd much rather give my money to a nice couple who are really trying to make a difference than a faceless commercial Spanish restaurant. Well done. See you soon.
