Our experience was a good one. Our food was good the service was great and the drinks were great and always ontime. My only comment would be online it stated that the restaurant opens at 5 p.m. however when we got there a sign on the door stated that it was opening till 5:30.outside of that everything was great.

I always enjoy dining here but the wait can be a pain when your hungry! Dined here on a Saturday (early evening), we were told we had an hour wait and decided to hit the bar. The drinks were "horrible"! I had a watermelon martini and my sister had a plain mojito; the bartender forgot to add the sugar to... More

I was desperate for a roti and so my friend took me here. Roti did not disappoint. Authentic Trini roti. A bit too big but oh so yummy. Cocktails are on point and the atmosphere is friendly and lively. Make it a point to get some good food here when you are next in town!

Same ol Sugarcane. Great Food, great drinks, all if you can get them. Yes, Service is wanting. But, it's West Indian, so that explains that. But, if you have patience, sit at the bar ( go early) and make sure you order everything you need from the bar man at once as he will disappear for 20 mins. Yes, he... More

Small space but the food is fabulous! Make your reservations or else wait and wait and wait while you smell the aromas coming from the kitchen. Unique flavors and dishes especially the sorrel. Don't miss the experience. Without a doubt you'll be back!

Sooooo...........I've been coming to Sugarcane since 2004 and the quality remains the same. Great food and drinks. The oxtail is always a favorite, along with the Stew Chicken and the Jambalasi Shrimp. Mac and Cheese is a go to as well. The only downside of Sugarcane is the size of the restaurant. Its always super crowded because it's not that... More

I came here with a friend who is a regular. It was late on a Thursday, and the place was heaving. I would've liked a bit less noise, but at least the music was good and the talk was peppered with laughter. This is a genuine Caribbean place, with all the classics: Jerk, callaloo, plantain and dumpling. The restaurant was... More
