Small but different and very tasty choice of caribbean inspired tapas. It was so good that my wife and me have returned a second time. The ambiance is nice, the service is charming while Bob Marley is singing... If you like tapas and you are spending a few time in Lanzarote... go and try!

What a great way to experience Caribbean food - tapas theme means you can try several dishes. Loved the curry goat and jerk chicken. This was a really friendly restaurant with a nice atmosphere and delicious food. We had six dishes between two and left satisfyingly full. I'd say this is a must visit if you're going to puerto del... More

Top notch food, we ordered almost everything on the menu and not a single bit disappointed, jerk chicken was out of this world. Even the deserts were wonderful

My partner and I walked passed and smelt this place, couldn't walk by without trying it out. Oh my how pleased we were that we did. Received a lovely welcome from the lady that seated us and took our order. The feel of the place was really nice and cosy and great music. We had the Jerk Chicken, Five Spice... More

First time I've had Caribbean tapas, the food was lovely and priced sensibly, my favourite was the mussels, they were very special, all the meat, lamb, pork and chicken were super tender, the staff were very friendly, nice place to visit.

We've always avoided Mexican Chinese and Indian while here but as we're here for a month this time we thought we'd give the Caribbean a try. Very tasty and spicy but not overpowering. The jerk chicken was succulent and the best thing we ordered. Fast friendly service. Good sized portions. Drinks a touch pricey.

We passed this restaurant whilst visiting another and decided to try it the following night (Saturday). We arrived around 8:45pm and there were a couple or tables left to seat the 2 of us (we hadn't booked). The waitress was super friendly and I noted many of the diners were clearly local or returning guests which I always feel shows... More

A little restaurant with bags of character. Family members had visited before and fully recommended it. We enjoyed a Caribbean tapas and appropriate beer and cocktails. It is a small restaurant but tastefully decorated in the manner you would expect. Everyone was cheerful, service was excellent and ambience made is a great evening. We enjoyed small dishes of rice, chicken,... More

We had eaten here previously and had always planned to return and we were certainly not disappointed that we did. We were glad to get a table just outside the door as it was a really warm evening and the restaurant was quite warm inside. They recommend 3-4 tapas per person but we only ordered five between the two of... More
