I love the Rum Punch....omg! Ok, note the food is good, my fav is both the chicken & beef patties, jerk chicken and cabbage. My friend tried the Jamaican burger and wasn't pleased. Overall, the menu has more great authentic food to choose from.

The appetizer section included fresh shrimp and a variety of fresh fruits including mango. All of it was beautiful! The jerk chicken, curry chicken and red snapper were fabulous. So we're the plantains. Service was efficient and elegant.
