A little restaurant with bags of character. Family members had visited before and fully recommended it. We enjoyed a Caribbean tapas and appropriate beer and cocktails. It is a small restaurant but tastefully decorated in the manner you would expect. Everyone was cheerful, service was excellent and ambience made is a great evening. We enjoyed small dishes of rice, chicken,... More

We had eaten here previously and had always planned to return and we were certainly not disappointed that we did. We were glad to get a table just outside the door as it was a really warm evening and the restaurant was quite warm inside. They recommend 3-4 tapas per person but we only ordered five between the two of... More

We had a family meal at TJ's and it was the best West Indian food we have ever had. The children had Ribs, coleslaw & dumplings whereas we had the curried mutton, jerk chicken, fried fish and the prawns, it was all incredible. The desserts are also lovely, properly homemade white chocolate cheesecake which is quite a big portion and... More

This is a fantastic idea, especially for people who are not too sure about Caribbean food or would like to sample a variety of foods, as you have the option of having the food served with the 'tapas' theme in mind. We loved it! We couldn't fault it. The service was excellent and the owners were very friendly. Whenever we're... More

We were a bit dubious about eating here after being turned away from Emma's Cantina as it was empty, but what a good decision it was to go in! Staff were welcoming and helpful - ask about the dishes if you are unsure - and the food was excellent. Can't rate it as Excellent because I don't know Caribbean food... More

We come here every year when we are in Puerto Del Carmen and look forward to it every time. The food is delicious and the service is just as good with a warm welcome.

This was my 4th or 5th time eating here and the food remains consistently good. Jeanine was as friendly and helpful as always and Tony's cooking is as delicious as ever. Finding a tiny bit of Jamaica on this island paradise is such a treat, don't miss out on it. We had the Caribbean chicken, jerked chicken (spicy but so... More
