As a newcomer to Trinidad I wanted to try the local food without being overwhelmed by anything too spicy-this place is perfect not over priced and the food delicious. The owner is only too happy to explain dishes too.

The food is very tasty capturing the rich flavor and essence of Trinidad & Tobago creole cuisine. The restaurant has a nice cottage feel with a décor reminiscent of Traditional Trinidadian home (Grandma's dinning room). Definitely recommend if you want that authentic Trinidadian dinning experience....More

Very nice "creole" setting, with hospitable welcome. Natural cooling with fans. Food was ok, though not special, and "medium" Caribbean.More

Love the term "Artsy Caribbean" ....I'll certainly borrow it for my write ups on the restaurant, if I may! Hope to see you back soon.
