The service was pretty quick, considering that when I went with 3 friends on a Wednesday evening there was only one waitress & a good number of other tables. She got us our drinks fast & was very pleasant. As for the food, forget it. I take trips to Jamaica at least once a year & I have never seen a chicken breast anywhere near jerk chicken. The jerk tastes like the chicken & the jerk sauce were sloshed together at the last minute. A friend of mine had the mango chicken, which was positively overdone & awful. My sweet potato was somehow cold right off the bat & my other friend couldn't believe how small her plate of king fish was. The oxtail & curry goat are the same price. Either this place is joking or trying to snake out every last dollar from unknowing downtown tourists. Avoid unless you want to spend money for no good reason.
Friendly & efficient service. The food was just amazing, just enough heat. I had the jerk chicken which came with rice & beans, fried plantain, sweet potato. My dinner companion has the salt fish & ackee with the same side dishes. We were tempted by the mango ice cream & were not disappointed. Looking forward to our next visit to try other dishes offered on the menu.
Ok, so I went to Montreal this weekend to celebrate my 24th Birthday. I took "Nick's" advice & decided to try the island chicken fajitas as I diligently researched this website to decide where to eat before I got to Montreal. I must say, my boyfriend ordered the jerk chicken & there was NO comparison. The Island fajita was OK- but 2 things were problematic with it. 1) You can't pick it up & eat it like a wrap-like the name "fajita" should indicate. It is covered in sauce & cheese so you have to use utensils. 2) I cut into a piece, put it into my mouth, & I kid you not, was surprised by a mouth full of bones! I didn't dare take another bite. I was turned off completely from that moment on. I only had the white rice & veggies & the plantains were OK-too thickly sliced for my liking. But I had some of my boyfriends jerk chicken & felt terrible that I didn't order it. My gut said I should have ordered that in the first place but I went for the fajita & it was a big mistake. So if you are debating which of those two to get-- pick the jerk chicken! You will NOT be disapointed. The Barris music on the TV was great & the tropical fish really made the atmosphere seem caribbean-like. If I had ordered the jerk chicken there would be no complaining here whatsoever. The waitress was nice & her helper was super keen on providing great service. Great place, great atmosphere, great food--just look out for stray bones! Also, try the 4 fish cakes as an appetizer! They are fabulous. They taste like conch fritters (for those of you who have been to the bahamas & know what I'm talking about). Yummy! In addition, try the tequila sunset to drink... faboo!
I've been twice & the food was amazing both times. The Ackee & Salt Fish dish is really good. The jerk chicken & the mango chicken too. The dishes come with sides & the peas & rice is delicious as is the vegetables & plantains.
There's a hot sauce that is amazing & actually, all the sauces are homemade & delicious.
The music is always good, if you like relaxing island styles & the ambiance is really comfortable with everything soothingly orange & good quality table clothes. The service was excellent both times & the waitresses are really interesting.
Try to save room for dessert because they're homemade too & to-die-for, especially the rum & raisin ice cream....mmmmmm.
I can't wait to go back!
my husband & i went on the weekend for the first time, my husband who is not a chicken lover totally loved the jerk chicken , i had the salt fish & it was very very good, enjoyed the meal a great deal & the price was very reasonable we found, we will definatley go back.
The food is always fresh. You can't be wrong if you choose the jerk chicken, the rotie, the patie or the fish! The service is very good, it's a nice little place to eat with friends or a lover..oh! & the sangria is just perfect! Can't wait to go back!
