Super clean, bountiful buffet. Great service. $10 for a more than filling lunch. The reggae music was good. Full bar. You have to park on the street. I had the buffet. Curried goat and chicken. Jerk chicken. Rice and peas, fish. The chicken was dry and had a ton of bones. Tasty though.

On a day trip from Atl, we stopped by to fill our cravings for some Jamaican food. We got exactly that. Food was awesome. I'll be sure to stop back in again on next visit...

Kinda stumbled upon this place and we were hungry so decided to check it out. To our surprise the cafe had already been switch over to nightclub mode for the night. They still were serving food though. Since it was late night you could tell the food was not "fresh" but if you are hungry go for it. The drinks... More

We were visiting the Jacksonville Contemporary Museum of Art but wanted a bit to eat before we went. Daughter had spotted De Rel Ting Cafe while looking for a parking place, so that became our lunch target. The food on the buffet was excellent and I went back for seconds, more than once. .Perhaps on our next visit, we will... More

My husband and I went on a whim after attending a reggae concert near by. To our surprise they had just launched their first night of jazz. The music was spectacular and the atmosphere just right. How ever we made a mistake of having our dinner down stairs... it's dark and lots of smoking! Other than that I would recommend... More

I really loved the atmosphere, the food was delicious and spicy but the best was the waitress who truly made us feel at home in Florida.

Enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Music was great and always love to see new artist perform. I had the oxtails with rice and beans. It was really hot (heat wise) ad spicy. Great food. The service was great too. I had no real issues.

The nightclub is nice with chill vibes until smoke fills the building. The dj needs work because he was all over the place& would nvr let a complete song finish before changing. The drinks were really good & strong. Will definitely go back.

I stopped by to try Real Ting but it was between lunch and dinner. There was not much choice since they were inbetween. I did get the feeling they are looking for more of a later party crowd as that is what they were prepping for. Will have to come back later and check out that crowd.
