This intimate restaurant in downtown Phoenix has a warm atmosphere, excellent service, great food and amazing cocktails. The food was fresh, prepared with care, and delicious. Portions are small but intensely tasty. I had one of the best cocktails ever and I have never been very fond of rum. All four people in our party left happy and ready to... More

The Breadfruit and Rum Bar is a Jamaican restaurant in downtown Phoenix. The food is excellent, and a nice alternative to the sameness of large chains. The only caveat is the small portions. You could easily spend $40 on an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert, and still walk away hungry, which happens to me every time. If you enjoy... More

Our party of four stumbled upon Breadfruit and decided to have dinner. We didn't have a reservation, so had to wait about 30-40 minutes. The only irritation was that you are not allowed to stand at the bar and wait, so we went around the corner to Chambers On First for a bit. We sat outside which was really nice... More

I am laid back guy and don't sweat the small stuff. I took my wife here for her birthday along with party of 6 other folks. While at the bar attempting to order a drink the party was seated. The bartender Sam and host were so rude I did not order a drink and instead went to the table to... More

Very, very impressed. If you're going to do small plate service - not just appetizers you're labeling small plates - then the food quality needs to be top notch. And this was. Excellent food. Its a small, intimate space, well appointed and just plain comfortable to be in.

The jerk pork with polenta was excellent. And the desserts are definitely worth a try. Great selection of rum drinks.

The bar was wall-to-wall RUM concoctions! Whatever Rum you desire, in a variety of mixtures, available for an affordable price. And then there's the food. We had deliciously prepared and beautifully plated shrimp dishes. The wait staff is very attentive and the ambiance is truly relaxing. Great place for conversation among friends or a romantic night for two.
