In my opinion this is another one of these cases where a place gets way too good reviews just because of supposedly decent / low prices. This is a shack type places with authentic caribbean atmosphere. There were some tourists having dinner and some local having drinks. All things considered the food was not bad, but it certainly also wasn't very good as many of the reviews here suggest. Also the prices were also just ok, this is still a touristy place (even though less than rodney bay). In any case you pay less than in rodney bay but also get less meat / fish and more sides. So in terms of value I am not sure there is a big difference. On the other hand we ate at a similar place souffriere and the food was slightly better and much cheaper there. Combined with the average service and average food quality I don't understand the high ratings.

Here it is always a great food experience away from home. The space is very intimate and the food is always well presented and in great portions. Warning.....specify what "sides" one wants or the plate will come with ALL the sides.....no objection here if the appetite is big. A lovely place for ribs, fish and bouillon(a local soup that's not for the faint of heart)
Friday Night is a good night to dine here but get there early!

A good meal, nice atmosphere, reasonable price, Caribbean taste, in a small town, accessible by bus, easy parking if it's not on the busy Friday night, just right

OMFG Went there for a fish meal and now I'm extremely sick...my throat is so sore. I don't know if the fish was bad or something in the food. Was hoping for a great meal but was greatly disappointed an hr later

Very well done local cuisine at reasonable prices; great bar scene for the younger set and noisy street party on Friday nights. Great place to mingle and dance with locals and visitors alike. However, if you don't like NOISE, try lunch, or a night other than Friday.
