We recently visited Trinidad to honor our music teacher from high school. It was her 75th birthday. We held a birthday dinner for 16 of her students/protege's. Jaffa's did her proud. The service--from preparations, to set up, to the event itself--was extraordinary. As one example, our cake designer botched the icing message, and Jaffa's offered to correct the icing at... More

Jaffa at the Oval, whose chef remains the grandfather of cuisine in Trinidad, never disappoints. During the week, an International lunch buffet is available, and offers great value for money. Afternoon tea is usually served on Wednesdays, and again, is exceptional value. Finding a restaurant for brunch on Sundays in Trinidad can be a challenge - again Jaffa rises to... More

I love eating here. A favorite. A consistently good restaurant with friendly service. Can be pricey depending on what you order. As it's at the cricked grounds, it can be combined with a visit to the cricket museum. This a family friendly restaurant with wheelchair access.

This is not a fancy restaurant. It is located at The Queen's park Cricket Club. The menu is decent and suitable for a quick meal. Not a place for fine dining or a fancy dinner get together
