We were able to sit outside. They had an interesting drink menu and a diverse menu. We shared many delicious appetizers, the server was friendly, and the chef provided a list of ingredients for one of the dishes. Great place if you like spicy food!

So delicious. I had steelhead salmon. Perfectly spicy, medium rare. Everything here is amazing. My table neighbors have tasted everything and come back 5 + years in a row. Carrot juice with coconut milk and vanilla! Creative, fresh, local and, of course, all types of rum. White sweet potato pudding.This is number one for me, in downtown Phoenix. Quaint atmosphere...

Very good meal last night, but I have a few suggestions! #1-Please add a few more choices that are not spicy and #2-What do you mean you do not offer de-cafe coffee. Three out of four of us CANNOT have caffeinated beverages, but would like a cup of coffee to finish off a good meal. Come on!

We were in Phoenix for a meeting, and had just 2 full days. That meant 2 dinners, and one was planned through work. I tend to plan my restaurants before I travel, at least which restaurants are not to be missed. With one dinner, The Breadfruit & Rum Bar was the one to visit. It was wonderful; the food, the...

Unique atmosphere in the heart of downtown Phoenix. True to its roots as a Caribbean restaurant. Food is well seasoned, flavorful, and the menu includes a broad selection of appetizers and entrees. Service is excellent. Note: bar is rum-only.

This was my third time here, somehow I did not review before, it is by far my favorite place, i love the rum drinks and the rum flights. Sitting at the bar is an experience by itself watching them mix cocktails with all sort of infusions and rums. The food is amazing pork, fish, etc all wonderful tastes. It is... More

I dined here with a group of 20 business colleagues and I have to say, the team, which may have been understaffed for the group size, worked hard to keep the food coming and the drinks flowing. It's a small restaurant and at times, the bar was struggling to keep up, but overall they did a really nice job. The... More

This was a neat experience seeing bartenders mix a variety of rum drinks at the bar. I noticed a lot of tinctures and found out a lot are made by the chef! Used in drinks and food. Seafood was very moist with some spice to the meal. Upon receiving your check they give you a postcard and state they will... More

Lovely but unpretentious atmosphere, a lot of beautiful small touches… And exceptional food. We all had salmon, incredible array of flavors, perfectly cooked. The desserts were unusual and very special. And... More

Up to this evening, our culinary experiences in Phoenix have been deceiving. We came to this place with no reservations on a mid-week day and no expectations. The waitress instructed us to the specialities of the house (exotic cocktails and fresh fish and seafood) and we followed her suggestions and dropped the idea to drink wine. The service was friendly;... More
