We had the plantains and the tamales and both were excellent! The plantains were SOOOO amazing with their home made hot sauce! Everything on the menu looked great. Slightly pricier than other restaurants in Banos but worth it!

The homemade veggie burger was delicious, and the side salad tasted so fresh and healthy. The portion was large and satisfying. The prices on their website are outdated, but this meal was worth the $7. Yum!

This place had an interesting menu and reeked of marijuana. The floors and tabletops are comprised of broken pieces of ceramic tile, and there are wall paintings that reflect Jamaican culture. They serve vegan food.
