I've been going here for years to mostly get food to go, and few times with others to dine-in. Food is ok most of the time. Went days ago with my friend and we wanted to eat there. A guy came in before us and he ordered, so we sat down so we could eat. Other than the one worker... More

I had this place on my mind when lunch rolled around and I was in Pensacola. I had seen the brightly painted building on several occasions. I had the small jerk plate with plantains, cabbage and red beans and rice. The price was great and there was a lot of food. These were the best plantains I've ever eaten. The... More

There aren't many Caribbean restaurants in the area, but this place is the best out of the few. I really like their curried chicken.

Was a little disappointed by this restaurant. I guess my review is biased based on my previous restaurant where I would get my oxtails. In comparison this place barely gave you anything to eat. The meat pieces were small and barely had meat on them. It lacked a really good flavor. The plaintains were good and the cabbage was good... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Pensacola. You have to order at the counter, and it's self service, but people behind the counter are very nice. I had Saturday's special soup, which was very savory. I also tried chicken curry, and I liked that it was not spicy, as I can't eat anything hot. Their homemade carrot juice... More

Food had no taste. Price is good for a bunch of rice. Need thyme and coconut milk and real cooks. Sorry for all the discrimination for people the are not of color. All Jamaicans are not like that.

They have moved from the address to 1315 North New Warrington Road. As usual, the staff is friendly and food is good. The atmosphere is fine for a small whole in the wall place. I've never had any issues with anything there

food was excellent, owner is nice and very accommodating, we had to wait quite a while for our food but that's because they were custom baking us empanadas, and those were hot fresh delicious when we got them, excellent authentic food from Jamaica

Heard good things about this place from a few friends and also some decent reviews helped me decide to try something different. Well I will say the food was quite good. However the indifferent attitude towards us for being Caucasian was apparent and obvious. What a shame... We most certainly will not return.

my last visit to what used to be my favorite Caribbean restaurant in Pensacola has changed my opinion. The day I'm talking my son and I went for lunch. There was one person in line before us and 4 people behind us. The lady took everybody's order as they arrived then took care of everybody behind us before we got... More
