We tried this Caribbean restaurant recently and really liked it. Has anyone else tried this place? I've not seen it written up anywhere.

    Trinidad + Tobago + Keyport, WA = a unique Kitsap dining experience. We took a group of about 16 people there on a Saturday night when the "Steel Drum Orchestra" played George Benson, Phantom of the Opera, and some more popular ditties. The drums make everything sound cheery. The food is genuine Caribbean. My wife's Puerto Rican palette is discerning, and the food is authentic -- y rico -- from the pelau (hints of spice and cinnamon) to the delicately prepared jerk pork to the ... well, seemingly everything our group tried. Went there for lunch a couple weeks prior, and the food was just as good -- same menu. It's a small business in an out-of-the-way setting, which is too bad, cuz a nicer setting would certainly garner more traffic. I think most people don't even know it's almost right across the street from Whiskey Creek. When the music plays, it's a reasonably priced dining experience.

      I would really love to try this restaurant, mostly to see the drumming show, however I am only 20 and can't find any information as to whether or not the show is 21+ only. Do you happen to know? I have tried calling but the phone number is not active, and I did not get a reply when I emailed them.

      Hoping for an answer,

      I've tried it and do like it a lot. I've only eaten at the restaurant once, but they're often at the Silverdale farmers' market selling a few dishes for lunch. The only problem I had is I found the prices a bit high, especially for lunch. The food quality and service I found very good. I may have to go back for dinner.
