Had my second meal at Royal Caribbean Saturday night. Again, it was fantastic.

Location: Two doors down from Red Room, Highland Ave, East Liberty

Appetizers: Seafood Fritters, Jerk Shrimp
Fritters fried to perfection, three types of seafood in them. Great.
Shrimp: Hot and jerked, just the way they should be.

Main Courses:
Curried goat - great mild curry, goat was tender and slightly fatty. Unique.
Oxtail stew - tender meat with tasty dark, rich gravy.
Jerk chicken - a darker jerk than the jerk shrimp appetizer. Good and spicy.

We brought our own, and drank heartily. Total cost (not counting booze) - $70 (not incl tip) to feed to capacity three male adults.

Couple of hopping nightspots within 30 yards. The whole experience is highly recommended.

Not very crowded, but unfortunately there were no Jamaican Beef Patties on the menu (although they are available elsewhere in E. Liberty not far from Royal Caribbean. We added scotch to their homemade ginger beer - the tangy ginger and mellow scotch combined for a great cocktail.
