We've had a Pan-Fried Snapper and it was amazing! Give this place a try, the owner is an excellent cook. You will get a better price if you pay in Jamaican dollar.

A must visit across from Tensing Pen. Small outdoor are with friendly staff and good food. We had to get the sauce to go. It's worth it.

This little place is right outside the front gate of tensing pen. The appearance can prove very concerning as it looks tiny and a little sketchy. The owner Juliet is one of the sweetest you will meet. Her daughter Shannakay is not only very sweet...More
