We are regular visitors and we absolutely LOVE this place. I am a Jamaican food lover but my 12 year old daughter is not into spicy or eclectic foods AT ALL. This restaurant caters to all. I had a jerk chicken sandwich and she had a burger with delicious dutty fries. Last time we visited with family, we had the curry shrimp and the Caribbean hot wings. They have something for everyone and the service is out of this world. Our waitress couldn't have been any sweeter or more attentive. The music adds even more personality and the colorful walls and pictures add to the ambiance. I would recommend this place to anyone willing to try something new or go with a tried and true choice. As a lover of all foods Jamaican, I can tell you that their recipes are true to their origins and the food is "natty dread." There's something for everyone here!

not sure if this is a family restaurant but it sure looked that way. we went there for an fsu graduation celebration b/c all the tally restaurants were booked. liam's was too crowded. richard's was full of rednecks. not only was the service excellent, but the food was absolutely out of this world and i would recommend this place to anyone! the decor and ambiance was totally mexico, nothing too cheesy, and the staff couldn't have been any more attentive. i was not thrilled about having to "celebrate" in a casual restaurant but, the food and service made it so much more memorable than i could have imagined. i will definitely return to this great restaurant!
