Jerk Plate

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!

Roti Wraps

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.

Chicken Pancit

Jerk Chicken Wings

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).

Curry Tofu

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!!!

Jerk Plate

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!

Braised Oxtail Stew

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!

Braised Oxtail Stew

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!

Goat Curry

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

Cauliflower Sandwich

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!

Red Bean & Squash Stew

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

Beef Lumpia/Spring Rolls

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.

Beef Lumpia/Spring Rolls

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.
