Very dissapointing. The service is incredibly slow and the food less than acceptable: the fish overcooked, the fries soggy and salty, the veggies salty as well. The jamaican style fish were spicy to the point of unedible (and we are mexicans and we can handle spicy) but not this fish. Overall not a good experience. I don't recommend it.

Not my favorite, but my husband enjoyed his jerk. Not the cheapest and plan on being there at least an hour.

Good food for the price paid. I had fish and it was nice and fresh. There is much else to say about this place I think.

The wait is worth the results you get. It is the best Jerk Chicken ever. They are not going to hurry, so if you are American be prepared to wait. You will not regret it. The night we were there the children's were out under a lanai entertaining us with their play.

Miss Edith's is a great source of authentic Caribbean and Costa Rican food. Everything is fresh and made to order, and the prices can't be beat. Great service. Will definitely go back next visit.

My friend recommended this restaurant. I went with high expectations about their famous rice and beans. Once there, I realized by looking at the menu that the dishes were overpriced, but didn't care because I was expecting to have a delicious Caribbean dinner with my family! I was so wrong! The rice and beans was old and dry, the fish... More

Though a bit pricey, the food is great, and the atmosphere is nice. Service with a smile, and the beer is cold!

Tried this restaurant based on a local resident's recommendation. Unfortunately, it was horrible. We both ordered fish dishes and were so disappointed. My fish soup had so many bones in it. I'm used to eating fish with bones but this was scary to eat. My friend had the whole fried fish and it was cooked so dry, the bones were... More
