My friend and I ordered the griot (fried pork) and fried red snapper, with duri djon djon and red rice and beans respectively. We had fried green plantains as a starter. Everything was well made, and quite flavorful. I was really surprised by how good the fish was, the food was well seasoned. Everything was made fresh, so there was a bit of a wait between the appetizer and the entree, but this was fine by me. I will be back!

The food took a long time to come. It would’ve been great if they had complementary snacks while we wait for our meal… especially because of the price for each meal. However, The food was good, the place was clean, and the service was good.

Great service, food and ambiance. We were greeted at the door. The host made suggestions for drinks and food. Everything tasted great. The decor could have been a bit better. Loved the outdoor covered seating.
