Came here a few times for dinner and drinks. Customer service is average. The ambiance is nice but the furniture looks aged. The food is just normal. Conveniently located in Movie Towne Plaza.

A relaxing ambiance and good menu selection. The outdoor seating made our service unbearably slow. The food was good and tasty. The Tilapia I had was well prepared with white wine sauce and creamy mash potato with sautéed spinach. The staff were pleasant but hard to get their attention. The restaurant was busy as it was carnival period. The prices... More

While on business we decided to check out Movietowne after one of our evening sessions. The taxi took us to the back of Movietowne and we saw trader jacks bar. We decided to sit in the courtyard and order the local beer. Carib beer was the beer of choice. The staff were friendly and timely with the service. I ordered... More

Me and my wife went out for a date. A little escapade from the children. We decided to have a "dinner and movie" night out. It was a Saturday night, and we expected the place to be full to capacity. It was not, we were glad to have a table within 5 minutes of our arrival. I asked for rum... More

very ordinary food, far too expensive for what it was. prices on menu are subject to VAT and a 10% service charge on top of which when i paid by card they had the cheek to ask if i wanted to leave a tip!

I took my wife for her birthday tonight. My meal was unrecognizable when I got it! I ordered the Steak & Shrimp dinner. Look at my photo below and tell me that doesn't look like VOMIT!

I visited last night I had the sea food soup aswel as the shrimp and lobster Alfredo and both were very delicious. I love the food . It was very tasty and serving sizes are satisfactory.
