I called ahead to request preparation of a dish, I was met with a polite and rather helpful individual by the name of Debbie, Having taken my order, when I arrived at the restaurant there was another helpful individual who assisted me with parking and directed me to their rather rustic and quaint place. I wished that I my decision... More

I go there on Fridays to have shrimp and chicken pasta, which is always good. There seafood selection is heavenly and you can pass the time away there with good company is a very relaxing environment. There is also a show area around back which is nice too.

The summation is that they try. Food unremarkable and overpriced. Service mediocre. Mosquitos in residence. Parking 6 spaces max. Nice ambience. Overly extensive menu does not allow for excellence. Unfortunately, after multiple visits we will Not return. I'm posting menu pictures, since not available elsewhere online.

Place was nearly empty on a Friday night yet car park was full of cars. They had tv blaring in restaurant. Not sure what ambience they hoped to achieve. Took over hour and 20 mins to get our food. 5 small shrimp in curry sauce with small handful of fries was nearly 30 US dollars. Total rip off. It's a... More

This place will almost let you forget that you are still in Kingston. Hats off to the owners for creating an ambience so simple yet very effective for this particular location. I didn't dine in but while waiting for my takeout I had a chance to observe. Looking forward to dining in. My take out was wonderful as well.

Never go to crab night....at JMD $2250 a head, its really not worth it...crab is very cheap! They use raw blue and its really just shell and sauce.

Very Nice ambiance aside.....What's happening here not what it used to be. I will pay for good food but...not of this now constant poor quality..Either get a new chef(s) or give them the tools to cook....I have always raved about this place and refrained from post anything negative....always giving them the benefit of the last 3 visits but now I...

My fiancee and I were the first customers of the day and still it took almost an hour to receive our food. The bartender and waitress were very friendly, but the owner made me feel like I was inconveniencing her by arriving 10 minutes prior to them opening. The food was ok....definitely could have been warmer. lunch for 2 was... More
