Enjoyed popping in for a couple of drinks and some food. Great choice of authentic Jamaican food accompanied by a good range of rums. Average price of sides (plaintain crisps, $6)and mains such as jerk pork with slaw for $24.

An uncharacteristically quiet night (Sunday), but the music was great, the service wonderful, and the food fantastic! Goat curry is the go-to dish if heat isn't an issue, the draft Red Stripe was just right. Wish I'd tried a rum drink - will definitely return!

Busy wee place with a chilled atmosphere. The food had a wee spice to it, not Jamaican spice but spicy enough to keep everybody on their toes. Good service friendly and informative.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
