Visited this quirky restaurant for the first time and was not disappointed. Service was unobtrusive and pleasant. Menu choice is not extensive but they stick to what they do best. The jerk chicken and pulled pork options were very tasty. A bottle of wine is...More

From beginning to end this was a most enjoyable dining experience. Our servers were very friendly and efficient. The restaurant has a small and dark frontage, tucked between bigger shops, so can be overlooked. This would be a pity, as you would miss out on...More

we were recommended to book this restuarant by our friends. It was easy to book online as most need phone call which was difficult for deaf people. However limit choice of menu but the food were delicious. Worth a wait.

As there is nothing on the menu that is vegan, I FB messaged them a couple of days before our trip. They got back to me within hours, saying that as everything is freshly cooked, you can play about with the menu and choose... More
