“A Fine Caribbean Dining Experience”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

My wife and I were dining with friends for Morristown Restaurant Week and Hibiscus was my selection. We entered to a steel drum and keyboard playing Caribbean music. They offered a prix fixe menu for $30 each. First was a Caesar Salad or a Hibiscus Salad. I was trained by an expert to select the dish with the name of the establishment on it and that proved a good choice. The appetizers were either coconut shrimp, which I got a sample of, or jerk shrimp on a skewer with more salad. My jerk shrimp was excellent and so was the salad. The entree choices varied. Two opted out of Caribbean flavors with salmon and Chicken Marsala, which they reported to be very good. One had the jerk chicken and called it spicy. I had oxtail in a brown sauce, which had less heat in the sauce than I was expecting but very good even without that. All came with either mashed potatoes or Jamaican rice and beans. The mashed potatoes looked great, but to have an authentic Caribbean meal I had to do the rice and beans. Dessert for the group was one cheesecake and Jamaican rum bread pudding. This bread pudding was very tasty. A fine meal all around the table for $30 each plus tax and tip.

“Great Food”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

We were in Morristown for business. Found this place highly recommended on both on Yelp and Tripadvisor. The restaurant is located on the basement level of Best Western in Morristown, which was unexpected to us. The place was nice and cosy. The staffs were very attentive. We had Hibiscus appetizer, curried goat and jerk chicken. Everything was very flavorful. The sauces that came with the appetizer were really good. If you love spicy and tasty food, we would totally recommend this place.

“Great food, old timerz feel”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Very small place and they seem uncoordinated being the basement of a hotel. Took a while to get the food, but had a great pianist there to pass the time. Food was excellent (mozzarella/tomato salad to start and rasta pasta with shrimp which reminded me of a spicier pasta vodka).
