“Mmmmm mmmm local food”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Cuzzin's is off the main Street but not hard to find and we'll worth searching. The jerk chicken was outstanding!!! It was spicy but not overly hot. We also had the local stuffing that was sweet potato based and fried plantains - both were delicious. The service was excellent.

“If only they served dinner !”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Excellent Caribbean home cooking, comfortable room, lovely staff. This is the real deal, not food "inspired" by local cuisine. years ago they were open for dinner, and I really wish they would be again.

“Authentic food at Cuzzin's”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We at lunch at Cuzzin's and it was good. They advertise that they are authentic and they offered different foods than the typical restaurant on St. Thomas. I got the Seafood Combo - deep fried conch fritters, a piece of deep fried fish and deep fried shrimp with fried plantains, french fries and coleslaw. All were very good. The fried plaintains were much sweeter than expected and very good!

My husband got Jerk Chicken with steamed veggies, spanish rice and a green banana. The green banana was interesting - it was hot but I didn't care for it. Service was good and the restaurant was busy. We could overhear others saying they were told they had to eat here by others who'd already visited the restaurant.

“Best conch chowder ever”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We were in St Thomas for a cruise day and found Cuzzin's for lunch. It was restful with brick and stone walls, updated from an old stables, and on a back street (Back Street). Locals were coming in for carry out but it was early afternoon and not too busy so service was quite prompt. The conch chowder was tender and flavorful, not overcooked, and the best I've ever had. Jerk sandwiches were also good especially with their homemade hot sauce (sadly not available for sale).

“Perfect Lunch for a Cruise Stop in St. Thomas”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Three of us just finished a delightful lunch of jerk chicken and vegetables. The restaurant was clean, the service prompt and professional. The cost was modest and the meal was the most tender and delicious jerk chicken I have ever tasted.
