My classmates and our instructors were visiting Kingston. We had an amazing dinner there. The food was delicious. I had the oxtails and fried bammy. We had the platters to try out the wings and more. Everything was tasty, hot and delivered quickly to our...table. I plan on return to Chillin' the next time I visit Kingston. You should definitely give it a try.More

We had dinner here, on Valentine’s Day, made reservations online, before travelling and call and confirm 1 hour prior to arriving- At time of arrival, the hostess told waiter to take over to the nicer side of restaurant, as we requested nice table due to...us being on honeymoon. We walked over all excited to find out no seats were there, the waiter than shuffled us over to any available seat, which was a back facing to stage show, small cocktail style seat, close to waiting bar area. We were not happy, asked to speak to manager, who then proceeded to say “oh we saved these seats for all reservation customers, and no one else complained” Thank god, another hostess over heard and told us to place our orders, as it takes time to come out, have a drink and he would move us to nice bigger table. Once that was resolved, we got to enjoy the live music, we love the atmosphere, the ambiance, the scenery, love it all. The food was really good- flavorful We will return on next visits. Would give 5*, if the table mix up didn't happenMore

The ambiance of the zoo is so nice...especially when you get there when the suns about to go down. Can’t go wrong with the salt fish fritters, wings, jerk pork and the “Burga”. Just order a que of rum with couple friends and catch a...vibe. The staff is polite and chill. Chillin is a whole Mood!More

As always a great experience. Food is always palatable. However, I believe I have exhaust the menu and for 2020, I would be delighted to see some addition to the menu. For example Chicken Buritto or even to introduce new meals on specific days apart...from the standard menu. OTHERWISE, ALWAYS PLEASURE DINING HERE.More

The atmosphere was good however.More

Good food. Friendly and pleasant staff. Interesting setting at the zoo. The reservation system seems to have some bugs that require attention.

They have a rule which states that if you make a reservation for say eight persons you can't be seated until at least half of them show up. I find this to be absolutely ridiculous especially when the "waiting area" had been prepared for another...group which meant that it was unavailable and I was told by the lady at the front that the only place I could have a seat and wait on my party was at the bar. When you get all dressed up to dine you don't want someone sending you to the bar to sit among people in casual attire. Then to make matters worse everything that my party and I ordered was cold. My fries and green plantains were cold. My friend excitedly ordered their famous curry mutton which was also cold. Jodi was our waitress and probably the only good part of the night and also my Charcoal chicken. I probably would not go back or recommend.More

This is like my 100th visit to Chilling. (smiles). I placed an order for a drink was after receiving and tasting the alcohol content was a bit strong for me. I however, explained to a gentle I saw walking the floor and he was more...than happy to take the drink and replaced it. Yanick you and your team provide exceptional service. I want to personally big you up and by extension the team. It was my friend's first time visiting and the food was delectable not to mentioned the curry goat which was the talk of the night. . Thank you guys for always meeting and exceeding my expectation.More
