Karibu is a fun place to go to to enjoy good Bajan food washed down with a cold banks beer. Don't miss the Saturday Karaoke.

Went here for the karaoke on a Saturday it was lots of fun for both tourists and locals alike. Our friends ate there and said it was delicious. A great night was had and plenty of Banks & Rum punch consumed.

Stopped here as I heard they had good Trini food. Can't say that I can verify that it is or is not Trini but it is very good. I like spicey food and it is certainly that.
