An enjoyable relaxed place for lunch. Can be noisy. Great place to mingle with the locals. Service slow but worth the wait! Authentic Caribbean! PJ the owner is very funny.
Went to this place in early April 2012. PJ, the owner, said they were renovating but we could sit on a picnic table outside. We ordered, and waited. And waited. And waited.
