Our family usually went to Jacksonville or the beach for Caribbean food but were extremely delighted to find this quaint restaurant. The food is SO good and the staff are delightful. We have decided to visit biweekly on days no one wants to cook. Worth it!!

What a wonderful discovery. Visiting from Long Island, we found this hidden gem on Trip Advisor. We were with a group of 8 and although the restaurant is quite small the extremely friendly owners promptly accommodated us. We were not disappointed. All the Caribbean dishes were home cooked and delicious . We all loved our selections and highly recommend this... More

We went to Jamaica several years ago and fell in love with the flavors in the food. So happy to have found this wonderful restaurant! Since we are local we know there are amazing choices available in the area, but this one is not to be missed. Nothing fancy, just authentic and delicious. The staff are lovely people and service...

Let me see how to say this while staying polite. My husband and I went into this restaurant based on a recommendation from a nearby store employee. We order the regular plate of jerked chicken. I got the cabbage and mac & cheese. He got veggies and fries. The veggies and fries were average. The cabbage was sort of mushy... More

Friendly staff with a laid back Island feel. Food is very flavorful and fresh. Yes, it takes a minute to get your food however, it's worth the wait.

My niece wanted me to meet her here for lunch so we decided to meet there today. I was a little sceptic but I'm so glad we ate there. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was very Jamaican.

Very tasty Jamaican food. Hard to find better Jamaican food outside of Jamaica I try to eat there at least once a week. The curry oxtails are super.

Found this place by accident and what a lucky break that was. It is a small place and food does not come immediately but it is well worth the wait. Jamaica is one of our favorite places to vacation and the food tastes as good as on the island. They have curry and jerk as well as beef patties and... More
