Great atmosphere for different occasions. This was my 6th visit and I've never been disappointed. Buffet style catering - soups, a wide range of salads, main courses and desserts to excite your palate. Complimentary wine and a well-stocked bar. A great place to celebrate with loved ones!

Heard about Jaffas a lot and eventually decided to try it. The brunch was self service. The main course was horrible tasting. Not what i expected from a renowned chef.

Consistency of the quality of what is delivered is my prime reason for rating. Jaffa comes as near to this in Trinidad and Tobago as I have experienced. There Is a great variety in the meals provided and plates to suit all tastes. Service personnel are polite and pleasant. Clean environment and over-all good management are evidenced at this venue....
