As I had never eaten Jamaican food before (or certainly not that I was aware of) I was intrigued as to what this little restaurant would have to offer. I was not disappointed! As I walked in I felt as if I was on holiday – the restaurant had a lovely ambience with bright red walls and obscure wall hangings. It was nice to go to a restaurant that was unique as Edinburgh, in my opinion, severely lacks these types of places.

The menu was interesting and varied. My partner and I both went for fish dishes; both were fantastic. I had sea bass and it came with rice, salad and lots of veg – the portion was extremely generous. The fish was cooked to perfection and it was such a tasty, satisfying meal that I have absolutely no complaints! For desert I had a rum based chocolate cake to satisfy my sweet tooth. Again, no complaints!

Service was good. Their only downfall was that they didn’t check up on us when we were eating our mains to make sure everything was OK… as I used to work in the industry I think this helps differentiate between good and bad service.

One other complaint is that the restaurant was quite warm & stuffy; possibly a result of all the candles they had burning or maybe, because they had cramped one too many tables into quite a small area.

The bill came to £40 overall which included a bottle of wine, two main courses & two deserts – pretty reasonable I would say. From Sunday to Thursday they also do BYO but this doesn’t include Friday and Saturday nights.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant – it is unique, the food is tasty and, for the short time that I was there, I felt as if I were on holiday (surely always a good thing!) For those reasons and more, I would definitely return.

This is a nice small restaurant with an interesting menu. Without ever having had the genuine thing I can't comment on that side of it. But it's the first time I've had goat, nevermind their tasty goat curry. They also had a selection of love/energy potions which tasted rather odd. I went there a few years ago and I'd like to go again to see what else I can try.
