The food at the Island Breeze Grill is distinctive and delicious. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The picture shown is the old location, they have moved and are located in downtown EC now.

My husband and I dined for lunch on a Friday. We went for the $9.99 buffet although the restaurant has a menu with something for everyone, sort of southern/Caribbean fusion. The menu includes such things as meatloaf, jerk chicken, and oxtails. The buffet was a...More

Awesome lunch buffet. Come hungry. Full bar and the employees like the food. Lots of spice (big flavor, not too hot), chicken, beef, goat. Amazing vegetables and sauces. Desserts are authentic and unusual. Have come back more than once.
