5 Stars! Don't miss this Jamaican Oasis! Worth the trip to Playa. Would have eaten here every day if not for the "all-inclusive" we paid for!

We visited this place after reviewing it on Trip Advisor and we are so glad we did. Called before we arrived so they knew we were coming because we went 30 minutes prior to their closing. We had Christian as or waiter and he was attentive and very friendly. For our group of 7 we have two full chicken specials... More

After reading the reviews we took a taxi to the restaurant from playacar which was only 110 pesos. We were on a mission to try something different and so glad we did. The chicken was amazing with a finger licking spicy coating. If you don't like spice they also do regular fried chicken. The jerk chicken was melt in the... More

My family and I wish we had found this earlier on our stay in Playa. We would have gone there numerous times. We had the kilo of ribs and a 1/4 chicken. The food was fantastic and the whole kitchen crew were enjoyable to joke around with. A can't miss on a trip to Playa.

When my wife and I lived in Playa we would eat there once a month. One of the better jerk chickens we had had and only once in a dozen times or more was the chicken dry.

This is a great place with Great food and great prices. It's truly "Not" in a touristy area. It's a small diner that has authentic Jamaican Jerk food. It's smoked fresh daily by Jamaicans with a talent for their recipe. The service is a one person show. The atmosphere is non existed, and check the bill's addition - check for... More

The most delicious jerk chicken in all of Playa del Carmen, one can eat! I simply love this place and find great joy in recommending it and hearing the responses of others after they have enjoyed the experience also, as I live in Playa. The spices are perfect on the grilled chicken, and even more spicy sauce is offered if... More
