Fine dining its not but that does not take away that this is a fun place seving reasonable food at a good value. We had no particular plans for dinner on a Sunday night but were just walking past and were tempted in. We were happy that we did. There is of course a McDs on the next corner if you prefer !!!!!!

I was really looking forward to their cuisine because me and hubby , we like experimenting with new dishes ,but this was a disappointment. Hubby had ordered Prawns and coconut and scallops while i went for Jerk chicken and chicken wings and they both ended up having the same sauce on boiled chicken.The staff was friendly, the ambience bright and colourful but the food was a let down.

In the middle of inverness, found a real gem. A restaurant with around 40 covers and mixed reports on tripadvisor.
Very friendly welcome and good range of starters and mains on the £11.95 menu wife had pork cheek which she thoroughly enjoyed. I had the prawn and curry sauce mix which must be one of the best starters I have had . An additional cost of £1.95.
For mains wife had the goat curry which has been the subject of much comment and whilst it did have a lot of fat and bone, it tasted delicious. I had the pork chop with black pudding and cabbage with a tasty sauce it was good but not as good as the starter.
2 delicious desserts to finish and really well presented together with 2 large coconut rums total cost £57 well worth the value
We were going to have coffee but the electricity went out! Nothing to do with jamaica . All of the power in the scottish highlands went out that night affecting 200, 000 homes!! Recommended

I do see a lot of good reviews for this place but for us it was rather disappointing. I had the scallops and the taste and presentation was rather amateur. My wife went for the jerk chicken and it was just unseasoned boiled chicken with sauce on top. The coconut prawns was ok but the rice was overcooked and again no seasoning. I truly hope that this low quality of food was a one time thing. It was also rather empty for saturday evening.
