our "barefoot chef"

Darryl consistently reaps rave reviews on Tripadvisor for his meals:

"Dinner is excellent in quality and value and stiff competition to the best restaurants in Ochi."
"The cuisine was off the charts excellent. My son and I enjoyed authentic Jamaican cuisine every night of our trip. New year's eve we devoured lobster tails in butter cream, chicken in brown sauce, Ham & Pineapple and fillet with chimichurri. The potato au gratin was killer. Had more servings of all. Plaintains were consumed with all meals and rightly so. The sorrel with rum kept flowing as conversation with the international crowd at the dinner table. Breakfast there was unforgettable. Ackee and salt fish, okra and salt fish and bammy, fresh fruit and pancake foster with carmelized rum and brown sugar. Need I say more oh yeah, Jamaican blue mountain coffee. Yes, yes and yes..."
"Darryl’s cooking enchanted our taste buds; to call his food home-style or native would be unjust. His cooking is gourmet without being pretentious, it was mouthwatering!... so full of flavor that is was impossible not to have seconds."
