We attended the Christmas Tea on Tuesday 29th November, 2016 and we attended the Christmas Tea last year as well, however this year was a big disappointment. The buffet choice was poor, the dessert buffet was absolutely horrible and the price for the Christmas tea was increased from last year. If you cannot provide quality food then do not increase...

If you are hungry and in the Port of Spain area, visit Jaffa's. Here is a continental fusion with undertones of Caribbean flavours. I would say, North meets South. Tasty soup awaits, delicious salad and mouth watering main course and dessert. The price is nice too.

Chef Joe Brown laid out an exquisite four course dinner for 30 persons last Saturday evening. We had the restaurant to ourselves as they do not open on a Saturday evening but will accommodate private dinners. The main course was pre selected by guests and following drinks, guests were invited to be seated and the meal started. Each course was... More

The service was good. Staff very welcoming, drinks were poured without being asked. The setup was nicely arranged and the variety of salads was wide. The food was tasty and with soup, salad, main course and desert buffet style was good value for money and food was tasty. Parking was easy.
