Caribbean | University City, Philadelphia

Fantastic! Finally found a restaurant close by that is amazing! Chef Lewis made each dish with perfection. We had fried catfish, blackened catfish, oxtails, and blackened salmon. Each dish was excellent. The Mac n cheese was superb. My husband said “it tastes like my mamma made it.” And save room for the bread pudding-although I took mine home-the buttered rum sauce was savory sweet on top of a terrific texture of bread pudding with raisins! The atmosphere is classy casual so you will fit in if you’re dressed up or dressed down. Service was professional! This is my new go to spot! More

Previous experience was 4 stars across the board. This visit, service was not on point and the steak was really raw vs medium rare. Still, the location, food quality and ambiance are nice and will try again on another occasion. More
