As a man that was raised in Brooklyn New York. I’ve visited my fair share of Jamaican spots and I’m proud to say the best Jamaican food I’ve ever had has been in playa del Carmen. Everything was on point. YOU WILL NOT REGRET COMING.

Me and my family just can't get enough of the food and the welcoming vibes of this place. Marvin and Stephanie, the owners and operators, are the most amazing hosts I've ever come across.

From the snapper to the dumplings, no matter what you order, you absolutely can't go wrong with any item on the menu. Oh and don't forget to try the rasta pasta. It's to die for.

Honestly, I feel bad for going so often, but oh well it's my second home in Play a now for sure.

See ya there!

Feel the Caribbean, island vibes here! I was in Playa for a month and made sure to include this spot in my weekly rotation. Really wonderful, authentic Jamaican cuisine, open air dining and lovely owner. Highly recommend the Rasta pasta!

I had such a great night, since the forts I¿ve repeated some nights there with close friends and every time I had a great experience.
The whole ambience of the place is so cozy and familiar, it¿s like eating ina friends house but with all the extras that a restaurant can offfer.

The food was so different to me and I enjoyed every single dish that I¿ve tried.
Defenitevely a place to try as a local or trhough vacations, such a great little place in playa!
