Decided to go out for a quick bite and very nice location in Brooklyn. No waiting for tables and the food was pretty good. I had the curry shrimp and the fritters. My sisters has the rasta pasta with chicken, shrimp and salmon. Everyone enjoyed their food and drinks. Reasonable price.

My friend and I had dinner and drinks this past Friday and had a good time. The food was really good and so were the drinks. The waitress was very pleasant and made recommendations.

QueenieD69, thanks so much for dining with us! We're sorry we weren't able to keep those citronella torches lit, but we'll keep that in mind next time. Otherwise, it sounds like you enjoyed your meal, and we're happy to hear it. As you can tell from our name, we're not entirely a Caribbean restaurant, so we don't always serve oxtail.... More

Small place, but good food, nice vibes and music. Seems like a food place to take a date. They have booths, low tables, high tables and a bar. They so also have a dress code, mostly for guys.

I have been to Vivid Cafe on a few occasions for Happy Hour. The drinks are good. The staff is friendly and the $5 deals are great. There was little to no wait time.

We came here for Caribbean restaurant week in Brooklyn. It's a cute little restaurant with a bar on the side. I was shocked that it wasn't more crowded for a Saturday night. They played some great music. They had a separate Caribbean restaurant week menu. I ordered the Jerk chicken with rice and peas and their rum punch. My friend... More
