Bamboo Fire is mentioned in a few posts about Caribbean Food in Florida but I really it deserves special separate mention. First and please excuse the cliched phrases but they all fit perfectly...Bamboo Fire is charming,the decor is quirky and very comfortable,both inside and out, the owners are wonderful warm,sincere,enthusiastic and generous.One word of caution this is a family run operation......if you go expecting strictly portioned,microwaved,steam table food that was made that morning (or last week) and that appears 5 inutes after ordering....this is NOT the restaurant for you. Beverly the chef and an owner ,(with her husband who is the waiter) is going to cook your food after it's ordered and it's worth waiting for. I'm not at all an expert on Jamaican food but the Jerk and Curry dishes satisfied eveyone in our party....ranging in age from 12 to 70. The conch fritters and the meatballs and the wings were all great, the sides were perfect as was the guava cheescake

Bamboo Fire is open only for dinner Wednesday thru Saturday and Saturday lunch and Sunday from noon to 6..Saturday night there is live jazz and open jam starting at 8.

Bamboo Fire is a wonderful and personal experience in a universe increasingly overun with bland,corporate,disengaged and often loud restaurants...anyone interested in good food and terrific people working very hard to please should
make an effort to get there soon
