Have been visiting Eddie and his brothers for years. The chicken is always moist and delicious. Cooked to order it may take time, but the atmosphere of conviviality and great music makes you not notice the wait

Best Jamaican restaurant in the West end. Great vibe and the best jerk chicken and lobster on the island.

From the outside you would never guess that this place has amazing food. I had curry shrimp by candlelight and it was amazing.

This spot takes a while but well worth the wait. Best jerk I've had on the island. It's a good place to take everyone, bring a game to play or hang out by the coal fire while you wait. Ginger beer and really good cocktails.

We often enjoy a beer here. Food is good. Very simple. Large thatched roof bar, lots of room. Usually quiet.

We've been here several times during our holiday and have tried many dishes. The jerk chicken is lovely, lots of flavour but not too spicy. Curry chicken tastes great, but sometimes more spicy than other days. Curry goat was okay, but next time I'll go for jerk chicken again. Nice relaxed atmosphere, and Eddie is a great cook.

We loved our dinner at De Bar. We both got the jerk chicken and it was GREAT. I'll be honest it didnt taste like jerk, but just bbq'd chicken but it was done perfectly! Expect you meal to take a while but it is well worth it! Bbq chicken takes time...the longer the better. Tell Eddie and Wrinkle hello for... More
