We randomly stepped into Jamaican restaurant. The waiter highly recommended curry goat. So we ordered curry goat and curry shrimp. The curry goat is so good. Probably the best curry goat I ever had.

Hello. It would be best to check with the restaurant. As for places to eat we found nothing particularly inspiring in the town in the evening.

This friendly neighborhood restaurant and bar features authentic Jamaican creations paired with a fun and lively atmosphere.

For those of you who are familiar with these specialized dishes, you will not be disappointed with the delicacies of this authentic Jamaican restaurant. Vegetarian entrees are also offered, along with a great selection of beers and spirits to compliment your meal. Besides the culinary experience, you will also enjoy the smooth sounds and vibes of reggae artists like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Glen Washington, as well as live reggae music every Saturday night at 10:30 PM. We invite you, your family and friends to visit us for a truly unique experience in Puerto Rico!
