We came here quite late one evening, it was almost closing time, but the personnel were kind enough to serve us anyway. Me and my husband had never tried Haitian food before so this was an exciting new experience. We tried the shrimp in coconut sauce and grouper in lime sauce. We really enjoyed the food and the restaurant itself... More

The food is rustic but there is so much flavor, that you just enjoy every single bite. Food is totally different than anywhere else, it’s experience. Also the hole place and decoration make great atmosphere.

Went here for my penultimate dinner in Miami, hoping for a authentic Haitian meal - not to be disappointed. We began with a mixed platter for an appetiser, two of which were perfect for my family of five. Then as an entrée, I had the goat stew which was beautifully tender and flavourful. The rice and beans were great too.... More

Quaint little restaurant, full of Haitian cultural ambiance. Ive visited several times and have never had a bad meal. The fried snapper is the best! Service can be a little slow, seating can get a little tight, but overall great experience.

The place looks cute with its hand painted chairs and tables. Service is very, very nice! The food is fantastic, fresh, well spiced. Taste combinations are new for me, very exotic, like: fish with mango on it. I ordered a traditional Haitian soup (which was extremely tasty!), shrimps in coconut sauce served with rice and beans and fried banana. It... More

First from the decor to the food everything feel and taste authentic. My partner and I, wanted to sample everything but that was imposible so we decide to try a bit of a mix. First the spicy marinated conch, was French and zingy with amazing flavour. We also had the spinach and coconut sauce as well as the herring and... More

My boyfriend and I never Haitian food before so we tried out this establishment. The vibe of the restaurant was very nice, beautiful murals and friendly waiters. We started of with home made lemonade and a mango salad, this was very refreshing. Then I ordered the grass-fed beef, this dish was a slavery stew accompanied by a corn porridge. The... More
