Since my wife is vegan I inquired about the vegan options when making the reservation. The owner's daughter said that they always have vegan options, but would nevertheless make a note of our preference for that evening. When we arrived the owner asked whether we...More

After reading the great reviews I had been looking forward to eating here for awhile. I knew the restaurant would be very simple and that was fine, but I expected the food to be great. The prices seem a bit high but when you get...More

This restaurant is not far from our house so it was a great choice for our anniversary dinner. it's one of Winnipeg's best kept secrets. This Caribbean restaurant is very intimate, seating no more than 30 people or so. The owner and chef is Trinidadian...More

Another Winnipeg ethnic gem. So happy we took a chance and tried this little restaurant. Even though it's tiny, it's exceptionally quiet, even when all the tables are filled (including one family with 2 very well-behaved children). One suggestion - in the evening, some dimmer...More
