Thank you for sharing about the food , setting and music. I've had a talk with the chef about the portion of Shrimp that's served on the Reggae Barbecue night and for those that follow they can thank you for a larger serving. Gracias!

We had watered down fruit juices, over cooked chewy fish with bland sauces and boring beans and carrots with no taste. This was not the Caribbean meal I was expecting having had some great ones elsewhere. Don't waste your money here.
