Good Caribbean food in DC tonight?


I am visiting Washington DC today with my girlfriend who is from Guyana. I would like to take her out to a nice restaurant with Carribean food for dinner tonight.

We are living near Metro Center in DC.

Any suggestions please?

  1. I have never been, but the The Islander on U St might be what you're looking for:

      1. Ceiba or Cafe Atlantico are probably your best picks for "nice restaurant" that feature Caribbean flavors. It leans more towards the Latin side of the Caribbean though.

        Islander on U-Street - is loud and slow, but the Roti is decent.

        But the vast majority of the Caribbean spots are take out (as they should be).
