Really varied menu however the veggie options could be better & more authentic - rice & beans etc as opposed to pasta! Pasta was a bit salty. Fish dishes really good & fresh. Meat eating companions all loved the ribs & jerk chicken. Good portion sizes. Really friendly staff & good atmosphere. Amazing and very spicy homemade pepper sauce! Would definitely recommend it.

Wow what can I say that has not already been said.
If this is what Jamaican food tastes like I want to move there tomorrow!!
We had a selection of tapas including curried goat, lamb and mint with sweet potatoes, beef with five spices, jerk chicken and my favourite chilli prawns. Everything was very, very tasty and I could have eaten it all again if I wasn't so full. We also loved the fried dumplings and rice and peas!
This place is a must if in PDC!

We have stayed in The Old Town, Peurto del Carmen a few times now and always look forward to having a meal of two here. Interesting variety of unusual tastes, all freshly cooked and delicious. Fabulous value, very warm, friendly and unpretentious. looking forward to next time.

Sorry but this was not for us. Greasy, salty and underwhelming.
Other reviewers class this as good, so perhaps the Chef was on a night off and had a sub in, I certainly won't be going back to find out.

We spotted this on a walk through the Old town, and remembered it from the Trip Ad list.
We decided to try and were not dissapointed, very friendly service and the curried goat described as slightly spicy???? will be a dish not forgotten.
Thanks for adding to a lovely holiday.

Thank John E
