With corrugated tin, wooden walls and sack-covered windows, Dutchy’s Jamaican Jerk Shack provides a unique place to stop by for an authentic Jamaican experience without even leaving Newport city centre. Inside the quirky restaurant, reggae and ska blast from the speakers while you sink your teeth into some spicy Jamaican jerk chicken or some traditional curry goat. Other delicious choices on the menu include the veggie-friendly Westmorland sweet potato curry and sides like plantain and hard food (dumpling, yam and green banana). The exotic cocktail list will transport you to the Caribbean with options like the Hurricane Gilbert, a fusion of Tia Maria, Appleton Rum and ginger beer, and the frozen banana daiquiri – book a table and head on up to North Street for an experience that will leave you wanting to come back for more!
Service was slow but was made fully aware of lack of staff and menu choices
Booked a table online, when we arrived the restaurant was shut. This has happened twice now.
Lovely food, drinks and staff but no dessert as we were kept waiting for a long time due to the restaurant filling up as we finished our mains :( we were left unattended for while and in the end asked for the bill such a shame as the desserts sounded amazing! Will definitely go back.
