Recently stopped twice on a trip to ME. The food was amazing and neither me or my family had any issues!

Traditional Jamaican food. The menu is almost entirely GF. I stopped twice recently and ordered the same meal (jerk chicken). No difficulties.

Just DELICIOUS! We got chicken curry, jerk chicken, haddock in the same sauce as the curry chicken and plantains with pineapple aioli. Everyone loved everything. 8 yo even polished off the rest of the veggies in curry sauce. We got 3 entrees and some extra rice, which was a great amount of food for 2 adults and 3 hungry kids. The best part? Almost everything on the menu is gluten free.

Almost all the entrees on the menu are gluten free and it’s all SO GOOD. Obviously avoid anything fried and there are no GF options for sandwiches but the curries, jerk chicken and pork, pan-seared haddock are all excellent and all GF. One of my favorite places in Ellsworth, and another with a great outdoor space!

Great Jamaican food. All of the entrees are GF and come with GF rice, beans, and veg. Small restaurant, and all of the staff are extremely knowledgeable and careful. Food quality and flavor were superb. I have Celiac disease, very sensitive, and didn’t have any problems at all. Overall a great lunch!

There are a few tables outside the restaurant, plus a park with picnic tables just 1 block away.
