The food and atmosphere are amazing, but the service was very slow. They did not come bring us our check until we put the credit card in plain view on the table. If you are not in a rush this is a great place to go, but don't expect quick service on a busy night. More

Caribbean | Jersey City, New Jersey - North

My first visit to this establishment. Greeted by Ella who was a delight and seated at a high top which is a turn off due to age. Spouse had the red snapper with pumpkin rice which was delicious. I had the peri peri shrimp which was very spicy but delicious. My husband did not feel well so we took our dessert bread pudding home. The dessert was not worth ten dollars. My complaint was a certain gentlemen brought me two dishes that were not mine and my pet peeve is clearing my dishes when my spouse was not finished his meal. I would go back again despite my minor complaints. More
