I went with a friend and the wait wasn't long to be seated. This restaurant is well respected so making a reservation is a must. I was seated by the door which wasn't a problem to me, but to some that would be an issue. The food is Awsome, great taste, and just wonderful. The BYOB part, Love it!!! I... More

We had a wonderful dinner and experience, two couples getting together to catch up and enjoy each other's company. The food was exceptionally good, we all thought. The service was attentive and friendly (e.g., water glasses were kept filled). The atmosphere and decor are kinda plain, but it felt very homey. We stayed for over two hours and were not... More

Love Haitian food and was so excited to find a place in Montclair. Ordered tons of different things and only one item was edible. The food was spicy to another level. My lips were burning and my husband and I basically threw it all out. The haitian caviar was horrible - red beans and rice were not so spicy they... More

We've been here several times and haven't been disappointed. Wonderful atmosphere and charming host. Love the soups and fish patties. Whole baked fish. Rice and beans. My own favorite is okra. Great desserts especially creme brûlée. Great experience.

This hidden gem is definitely worth the effort. We came out despite the weather and I'm so glad we did! General Note: I'm still getting used to bringing my own bottle of wine to restaurants. As a born and bred NYer, there's alcohol EVERYWHERE! I can adjust to change quite easily so it's no biggy. There's a choice of two... More

This off the main strip charming Haitian restaurant is definitely worth checking out. The meals are plentiful and heavily seasoned, just the way we like it. The three course meal comes with soup and salad, both of nice quality. It does take a bit of time for the food to make it out of the kitchen so plan accordingly. The... More

Off the main area of Montclair restaurants. Not a lot of skill in the waiter & buss boy. When he filled our water he filled it all the way to the rim. They assume that you are eating 3 course meal Soup, Salad, Entree. We felt like we were in a foreign country. The food! Wonderful (small) empanadas of many... More

I have been many time and felt that I wanted some fish " gros Sel" for unrefined sea salt last night. The atmosphere was convivial, as usual, especially when welcomed by the owner who is very warm and welcoming. He enticed us to try some raw conch that is a special Caribbean recipe and was spicy ( too much for... More
