“Okay Caribbean”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

While the food was enjoyable, it wasn't spectacular. Two of the items we ordered were unavailable, though the menu wasn't changed to note that. The rum drinks are very good, though, and rum they have in abudance.

“Fun and funky with good food”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

This is a casual fun and funky place to dine that offers a varied Caribbean menu at a very affordable price. The service is great, the drinks are generous as are the portions. Definitely worth a visit.

“Perfection!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

This is a neat littile place in Laguna beach and food is utterly amazing! Cajun shrimp is not for faint of heart- so spicy that one of my friends asked Eva if it had 'Harbenero peppers', to which Eva's response was ' harbenero peppers?' And she just smiled!

We pulled our friend's leg coz obviously he did not know Carribean food!

The rum cocktails and chocolate deserts were food heaven.

Sadly, that food heaven lasted only 2 hours!!

“A change of pace, BUT...”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Having travelled to the Caribbean dozens of times, and based upon the hIgh ratings for this restaurant, I must say that my expectations were high. Quaint look from the outside led to a rather basic, yet colorful interior seating area. But we came here for the food. Conch fritters were average, at best, as an appetizer. The curry chicken main dish had a generous portion of sauteed veggies (carrot, squash and onion) and rice, but the curry chicken tasted purely of black pepper, and none of curry. The amount of chicken in the dish was less than half a small breast of chicken. At $21, this was not what I expected. Hot rolls to start the dinner were nice, and the service was excellent. The specialty rum punch was very good. No room for dessert, so I cannot comment on that. Overall, I felt the dinner was overpriced and of very average quality. I would not repeat here given the other great places in the area.
