We came for dinner to a fairly full restaurant near the end of dinner rush and received great service. The coconut lobster is amazing! Tender, fresh and perfectly seasoned.

Went to Erva's for breakfast. Enjoyed our meal immensely. Two breakfasts with coffee for around $15 usd. Service was friendly. Place was empty at 9am on a sat. Highly recommend the fry jacks and beans! Sooo good!

We enjoyed drinks and nachos here during happy hour. We sat outside near the walk and enjoyed the strong drinks and watching the people walk by. The staff was friendly and quick to answer any questions related to tours or activities.

This restaurant has been around for many years. They will cook most anything but their local favorites are GREAT! Clean, friendly and a good meeting place.

Had a really good Caribbean meal here. Curry with rice and slow cooked pork with rice and beans. We even got extra plantain on the house. Worth a visit.
