What a great place!! We felt right at home. We were there during bad weather and were quite happy they were open! The restaurant itself is on the smaller side, but just perfect! The food was excellent! I had sweet ribs and yummy veges. My picky 10-year-old had Italian chicken with rice and beans, and she absolutely loved it. She even brought back her leftovers, which wasn't a lot by the time we were done (although it seemed like more than I remembered). Charmaine and her lovely Jamaican man were so friendly. We enjoyed our whole meal chitchatting, which was really nice because we had been cooped up in our hotel the whole day. My daughter said she was going to build her restaurant in her Minecraft game, so she obviously loved it! The black cake, with lots of rum, and strawberry shake ended the night just right! Thanks guys! We'll be back next time we are in Niagara!

Thank Kim P

Loved the food at Charmaine's Place. The Jerk Chicken was excellent, the sides of rice and Mango salad were flavorful and great portion size. Finished off with the "Black Cake" which is a Jamaican Christmas cake, easy to tell as there was lots of RUM in it:) Charmaine and Zephie made me feel welcome from the moment I stepped in the door, it is rare to meet people that are so warm and friendly. Charmaine's Place is a must place to dine when visiting Niagara Falls.

Charmaine's Place is easily one of the best decisions we could've made on our trip. Home-cooked food (as in "Hey, I made some guac this morning, want some on your rice?" Um, duh! Very vegan and vegetarian friendly, kind, and not touristy in the slightest (which you're REALLY going to like in Niagara Falls). She knew all the ingredients in every dish, and carried on a great conversation the entire time she was making our food. Very affordable, you're really missing out if you don't make the stop! (Plus: coconut rice!!!)
