“Surprise! We LIKE carribean quizine. (And great service, too)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Since we like Mexican food, we hunted for a Mexican restaurant in the area but when one we found had a line out the door we opted for Joe Caribe which was much closer to our hotel. We were in for a great surprise. We liked it. We really liked it. The coconut curry noodles were very flavorful, the curry not too hot and the other spices (including those in other dishes) were not overwhelming and very tasty. Our server was splendid and helped make out party feel welcome genuinely welcome. We had a larger party and they were able to seat us without a wait in an area where very little else was going on. A very good experience over all.

“Excellent value and good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Simply the best fish taco's I've had anywhere and a Curry Tomato Bisque soup to DIE for! Several vegetarian options, gluten free options also, all with generous portion sizes and very reasonable prices. A great selection of beers, some "okay" wines and fun "mocktails" (I don’t think they have hard alcohol but I’m not completely sure about this) Great location right of the freeway with lots of parking and a comfy/casual ambience inside. It’s our “go to place” when meeting friends or just grabbing a beer. Can get busy on the weekends but it’s always been worth the wait.

“Disappointed in the resraurant. Would not recommend.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

Attended an event at the restaurant. They were aware of the group but made no provisions for additional help. The server only one, did the best she could, but service was slow and many had to wait for food to be served. Also, found the bar pricey. Would not recommend for a large group.
