Reviewed April 21, 2013

Specially made and served food by a friendly caring staff. Excellent conch cowder, fresh king fish and lime shrimp. This was capped with an outstanding key lime pie( the best ever)

“Private Dinner For Two”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

What a great private dinner we had at Ali's. Barbecue ribs, salad, rice and beans, preceded by black bean soup, one cigar, and fouur Caribe's. It was all sensational. Thank you very much.

“Good but kind of pricey for what you get”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I'm not usually one who mentions price in a review, after all, the prices are on the menu and if you don't like it, go somewhere else. However, in this case, I was still pretty surprised when the bill came after our lunch. Five of us had Roti and two drinks for lunch, no dessert, and it set up back $150.

OK, how was the food? The Roti was great, drinks were good and service was really slow. I took us 15 minutes to track down anyone in the restaurant so we could pay and go. Satisfying meal, nice view, just a bit pricey.

“Laid back service with excellent food”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Ali Baba's does not really get hopping until evening time. Our group got there early (around 3pm or so) and enjoyed a couple rounds of pain killers and one of the most amazing views while the sun set. It does take a bit of time for the food to be prepared, but we enjoyed watching the night life pass by as we waited. The food was excellent!! I have to say. I did not expect this high of a quality of food when we just originally stopped by for drinks. I usually do not like carrots, yet I find myself craving a serving of their's while back in the states. In total the five of us spent about 3-4 hours there. Worth every moment!

“Rip off”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Service slow. Never bothered to ask if we wanted another drink while we waited 45-60 minutes for our meal. Food was good. Chicken roti , garlic lime shrimp and Mahi Mahi and key lime pie. However when we went to pay and the pie was $10 / slice we totally felt like we had been had! $40 for 4 pieces of pie - give me a break!!! We felt ripped off. We are not cheap but that was completely out of line. So if you go to Ali Baba's ask the price first!
