I was happy to hear that a new place opened up that sells Caribbean food. I haven't had the opportunity to taste the Haitian food yet , however, the Cajun shrimp and chicken salad was delicious. You do not need any dressing ! The chef came out and ask me how did I like it? I thought that was nice. The salad is 16 bucks but they do not charge you tax. I hope they leave it like that because the menu was on the pricey side .

My husband and I were delighted to find out that a new Haitian restaurant and bar recently opened in Canarsie. We miss the previous restaurant(Ambiance). Well it wasn't what we expected. The decor was too disco-ish for me with all the flashing neon lights. WOW!!! The menu is more of a mixture of all Caribbean island foods then just Haitian food, so I'm not sure what the theme is really pertaining to when it comes to the menu. Not to mention the over priced food. The service was slow. We were given a glass of water to drink and never offered anything else until we called one of the owners over at the end of our meal to find out if they only served water in the restaurant. He apologized and blamed it on the lack of knowledge of the servers. My husband ordered tassot (fried goat) with rice and beans and I ordered the oxtail with white rice. However, when the food came out we were both surprised. He got a plate of fried bones with little meat and I got rice and beans. Not to mention the food was cold. I asked the server what happened to my order and she said they ran out of food so they gave me whatever they felt was necessary. I wasn't thrilled about this so the cook came out and offered me some black rice instead. Okay, I accepted the only hot food offered from the kitchen. We picked at our food for about 20 mins then decided enough was enough. We paid for the time spent and left. We will give it about 6 months before we return to this place. Hopefully by then the service would be better. Until then, I'll continue going across the street.

As a resident of the south area of Canarsie I was so happy they opened up a restaurant lounge on ave L! Finally, a lounge that I could WALK to! So of course, I visited this restaurant with an open heart. The music was great, they played a calm selection of Kompa (Haitian music) and Reggae that drifted me to a peaceful nostalgia. I was a bit disappointed when I found out that Soft Opening (this was the first day opened) meant that I couldn't get an alcoholic drink but, the bartender suggested a VIRGIN Sex On The Beach which was fair enough. For dinner I ordered a Rasta Pasta with Jerk Chicken. They served my food in a timely manner. My food was great. However, I do wish the jerk chicken was a bit spicier. Overall the energy was great, very cozy atmosphere, definitely a nice local spot to visit. The waiters & bartenders were friendly but not consistent, it was bit of a hassle to try to get their attention. (maybe because it was their first day.) The owners were nice, they stood by the door to introduce themselves & personally thanked everyone for coming. One last thing, you might want to break those piggy banks because the food is a bit expensive, I can't imagine how much they're going to charge for drinks. I plan on going back this evening with a large group so I'll write another review soon.
