“Lovely food and drink”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Jaffa's is great for afternoon tea, or lunch with business partners, friends or the one you love.

There is a wide array of food from soup for starters and then sushi, heavenly salads and then fusion-American-Caribbean food.

There is a wide assortment of desserts, which could be nicer, but they are not too bad.
The staff is well trained and friendly and it is well worth the price which is $200.00TT.

Your tummy will be happy!

“Lunch Buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

This is still the best lunch value in Trinidad. The food has maintained a high standard and you get proper bang for buck....and that's hard to find in Port of Spain now

“Afternoon tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

I visited this restaurant with friends. The menu items were varied and there was excellent balance between sweet and savoury items. The ambiance is nice and the servers friendly. My only complaint is that some of the savoury items were a bit too salty for my liking.

“Best lunch in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Jaffa at the Oval offers up the best lunch deal in Port of Spain. Apart from the lovely ambience and great service, customers are treated to a wide selection of food that will satisfy any palate. This buffet consists of a soup to start, (sushi and sashimi on a Friday), an extensive salad and seafood station, main course buffet that may include prime rib one day or roasted pork loin and a wide variety of delicious desserts. You also get a complimentary glass of wine with your meal. For TT$200 inclusive of all taxes this is by far the best and most delicious lunch deal in town.

“OMG The Food is Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

I had lunch here and all I can say is OMG the food is excellent! I enjoyed all the courses from the pumpkin soup right down to the buffet desserts. The options for vegetarians and persons not on the chicken and other meat diets were many. The wait staff was very attentive and the ambience was relaxing enough to enjoy the meal and forget you were in the middle of Port of Spain at the Oval.
