I love supporting local businesses, but our experience of going here twice has been very poor. The service is good, but the food doesn't even come close to fresh and authentic taste. The food tasted like if had been sitting all day. I hope the owners do something about this or we're never coming back. I really wanted to like... More

The quality of the food was exceptional. The plantains were some of the best I have ever had. Restaurant is well decorated. Will have to return to try additional dishes and desserts.

Flavorful and fresh with direct contact with the owner/chef. Very affordable and a welcome change from the typical fare of the area. Bright... More

I personally like the spicy pork and the jerk chicken, but everything I've eaten here is delicious! The chicken soup is the absolute best I've ever tasted.
