We had lunch here one day - coconut crusted chicken and pork, both served with rice and beans, cole slaw and plantain. The flavours were outstanding and we would highly recommend this place overlooking Burns Avenue.

This place serves really amazing, local dishes with lots and lots of flavours without being pretentious. The service was great! They also have great vegetarian food and serve tasty and healthy juices. All for a very fair price!
