Really tasty to have on the side.
Incredible food. Wonderful service and a great atmosphere. Absolute gem.
Oxtail Stew is my favorite 💯 the sauce is amazing it taste so good and the meat so tender Thank you for making this dish its so yummy😋excellent job chef👍
Always a delight. The meat is always cooked just right, the level of spice is nice. The peas and rice are the perfect side. I always come back to the jerk plate!
Hailing from Trinidad and Tobago, I find it very difficult to find food from my country or any sister country anywhere in Southern California. Roti is one of my favourite dishes and the only person in my family in America who knew how to make it was my grandfather. Before I discovered Caribbean Haven, I had not had roti in years. The first time I went to Caribbean Haven, the first thing I had was roti. When I first tasted the roti, I thought to myself that it seemed pretty similar to Trini roti. I found out that the roti was Guyanese. Guyana is one of my neighbouring countries, so the fact that I found a roti so close to mine was really exciting. You can put all sorts of different things in roti so I found some of the things that the chef put in my roti very innovative. Two for example were French fries and coleslaw. I normally hate coleslaw, but the coleslaw in the roti just tasted amazing for some reason. I don't know what it is with the roti, but by the fourth time I visited, I stopped calling the place Caribbean Haven and started calling it Caribbean Heaven. I'd also like to point out that I've had more than just the roti. I've had the jerked chicken and the curry and almost everything of the menu, and it's all delicious, but I just go crazy over roti the same way Americans go crazy over pizza and burgers. Keep in mind, I live all the way out in Agoura Hills, which is at the border of LA County, so driving down all the way to Ventura to have my kind of food is definitely worth it. And last I heard, there's a Caribbean Haven opening up in Thousand Oaks, so I going to be going there like everyday for lunch when it opens up.
Another fabulous meal! I've also had chicken adobo and jerk chicken - Both delish!! Cassava pie and rum cake are amazing too!!
This is my favorite restaurant in Ventura! Everything is super fresh, and we have not had a bad meal. The jerk seasoning has the perfect amount of spice (more delicious flavor vs. actual dear your mouth heat). Workers are all great, and really make it a fantastic experience every time we come (for dine in or take out).
I love love the braised oxtail stew. so good! full of flavor and so tender. you can tell that it's made of love.
The chicken is cooked to perfection. It's tender and flavorfully, rice and beans are on point. I get this all the time and I'm never disappointed. The food is hot and the ingredients are fresh. Bomb af
The most delicious way to eat fries ever. Add some hot sauce and they're somehow even better!
Very delicious! Excellent flavor with the right ratio of filling to wrapper. Crispy and so tasty with the included sauce. Will definitely order this every time.
This place is amazing! I ordered take-out for Father's Day and everything was perfect. We tried: empanadas, vegetarian lumpia, lumpia with meat, Jamaican patties, rice with peas, greens, curry tofu, curry chicken, chicken pancit, jerk chicken, and BBQ pork. I need to get back there for more! I especially want to try the jerk cauliflower and casava cake. 😋 There are so many great Caribbean and Filipino selections with a variety of protein/vegetarian options. You will surely please everyone's palate when you grab dinner at Caribbean Haven! Bonus: What is also amazing is that the staff is great. They go above and beyond in their service. ❤️ Thank you, Caribbean Haven! I look forward to returning!!!
This was so tasty! Everything was spiced wonderfully and the chicken (I chose the mild spice option) was especially good and cooked perfectly. I had this delivered and the temperature of everything (including the vegetable lumpia I got as a side order) was nice and hot. I've eaten inside the restaurant as well pre-covid and even though I'm a Filipina, I'm always torn on getting a Carribbean or a Filipino dish as my main meal!
Delicious. I never want to share them and can eat them all!
Delicious!! We shared this dish along with the beef lumpia, meat pie, and rum cake to finish. All of it was SO GOOD! Can't wait to try some of the other menu items!
Juicy meat with an awesome grilled flavor and sauce.
Very good baked macaroni and cheese. Extra small macaroni, extra big flavor. Couldn't be better!
These patties are delicious! I've tried beef and vegetable. Both had a great flavor, and the outside pastry was flaky delicious!
These oxtail were so very tender and tasty, which reminded me of oxtails back in Louisiana. The coconut shrimp is absolutely delicious, and the jerk chicken... <deep sigh>... They. Were. Right!
This is my favorite dish!
The food is fantastic very addictive. The staff is so nice love this place
It's so delicious juicy inside and crispy outside the sauce taste good amazing dish
A tidal wave of rich flavor is a proper opening when describing this dish. You can tell The Oxtails are cooked slowly and soak up so Much flavor When it's finished you are left with an elixir straight from the Gods. HIGHLY recommend trying a bowl with some roti!
Roti taste exactly like back home. Had one 2 weeks later and it was still soft. Fried plantain was legit, so was the dhal. Only time I eat like this is the holidays. Thanks for bringing authentic West Indian food to SoCal
The food is fabulous. I always get the Curry Tofu as it's one of my favorite dishes ever. I usually treat myself once a week to eating out and this is my go to spot
This is such a hole in the wall spot and is my favorite place in Ventura! I drive from SB just to get these unique flavors. The customer service is great, but the food is even better!
Best tasting food we've ever had and during a pandemic it's the best food to pick up and take home
I absolutely loved everything about this restaurant! From the food to the service. I ordered the jerk chicken bowl, braised oxtail bowl and Jamaican beef patties. I don't live close by but would drive back an hour just to have this meal again!
We ate here twice in 4 days and loved our food both times. Both my husband and I are vegan and we found many options to choose from. My husband had the vegan Rasta pasta, and the jerk tofu plate with rice beans and coleslaw. I had the BBQ Cauliflower sandwich and the bbq Tofu plate and the casava cake; we loved it all. Thank you!
This was one of the best things I've ever had! The flavors are unbelievable and it hits all the spots I crave. From the stew to the coleslaw, to the beans...everything went well together! Usually I eat the food items one by one but this time I ate everything all together because they all went so well together. When I ordered the food I came to pick up the food 40+ min late but I didn't even have to reheat the food it was still warm and the coleslaw was still fresh and crispy! Highly recommend
I usually order the catering lumpia here at Caribbean Haven. The good thing about cooking is you can have any style you choose. And the style for the lumpia here is the best in Ventura County. You still have that Filipino taste with a Caribbean kick. Hands down would come here on a regular basis.
Such deliciousness, tender and flavorful. I love oxtails and these are one of the best I've had. Oh, lumpia, pancit, jerk chicken very tasty too. Did I mention the mac n cheese? Oh to die for. I'm hooked. About time some good food came to Ventura. Same ol stuff. Not anymore....

This is always delicious and we drive from Santa Barbara to enjoy it.
The absolute best food around. The staff is amazing which makes the experience even better. I tell everyone the food is some of the best I've ever had
The pineapple chicken wings are yummy! The pineapple flavoring is subtle, with just a touch of spice. So flavorful I could eat them all!
For Mother's Day takeout, I decided to try something different. First time to this restaurant. I ordered a smorgasbord of Beef Lumpia, Filipino Pork BBQ, Jerk Chicken Wings, Curry Jerk Fries, Shrimp Pancit, Grilled Pork Belly & Rum Cake. Every dish was fantastic. I will be back & I have recommended this restaurant to family & friends. Can't wait to be able to sit in & dine, when this pandemic is over. Thank you to your Chefs & staff for the wonderful food & service.
Genesis Programs so very much enjoyed all the meals we ordered for our Staff lunch! Thank you so much for your great food and commitment to serving the community during the COVID 19 shut down!!! We'll be back again!
These wings are awesome!! This a must anytime i go to Caribbean Haven..
