First visit for us, but certainly won't be the last. Fantastic shrimp curry with such wonderful flavours and interesting side dishes (chana dal, pumpkin, banana chutney). Fab Rum Sours, nice and strong. Proper caribbean food.

Back again to one of our favourite restaurants . Sisters Pat and Marie give you such a warm welcome. Super fresh home cooked real Bajan food. An absolute delight. Again star rating not working. We gave it 5 stars for Service, Food and Value

WOW. 2 sisters in the kitchen making everything from scratch while we sat on the deck in the breeze sipping wine from Chile. Then desert of homemade brownies & coconut ice cream. Wanted to take them home 👏

Healthy, fresh food, different specials daily. Offers gluten free if wanted, smoothies and fresh juices and freshly cooked. Don’t be put off by the setting opposite Jordan’s supermarket.

Lovely menu yes limited, but all fresh. Tucked away in the corner of the town square on a tiny decking, small welcoming lovely sisters came and spoke to us, don't expect gourmet but well worth having lunch if you visit Speightstown.

So glad we found this restaurant, the food was fabulous! It is run by two sisters, both of whom were delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience here.

Ate here at dinner. Odd spot in the corner of a shopping center parking lot. Only 6 tables. Menu limited and food was good but certainly not stellar. Yes, the ladies are very nice but we expected more based on the reviews. Bread was somewhat...More
