by Robert Zanten on Jamtillean | Caribbean Local Cuisine

When we ate at this place it was a very calm night, the staff was really friendly and advised us well about their favorites. We got some home-made coconut shrimp and Jamaican johney cakes, the johney cakes were a 100% recommendation for the price!
As main course we took the Mahi-Mahi and on recommendation of the staff the shrimp Curry. The Mahi was perfectly cooked, soft and juicy with a tasty grill flavor. And the shrimp curry was really wow!!! You tasted that they do not use the regular curry spices but authentic jamaican spices, never had a curry this good! Just take it with rice & peas to mix with the sauce. Other good sides were the baked potato with sauer cream that was perfectly cooked.
You get to enjoy Caribbean hospitality and food in this nice place, without the need to go all the way to Lolo's in grand case!
