OK, I don't get the attraction, but I guess I'm out of the loop.

I think it's about re-purposing something that would otherwise end up in a landfill. I'm with you, though!

This is a Caribbean style restaurant and not gourmet dining, thus a casual atmosphere and some favorite Caribbean foods as suggested by the name. Friends who live there and appreciate good Caribbean food ate there recently and really enjoyed it.It is nice to have another casual restaurant in Simpson Bay offering good food at reasonable prices. Variety is the spice of life!

Loved the container concept, very comfortable

Honestly, I find that they have done a good job with the containers.

I'm not a great fan of containers but the used them in a pretty innovative way.

It's just a pity that the menu is so bland and the service so badly organized.

I'm not sure that they will last, customers are few and far between.

I also expected a large collection of Rhum and Rhum based cocktails, alas hardly any...

We had a menu/flyer on our car last night from the restaurant. Appears to be around 30+ menu items and some daily specials. Like with anything different, it is personal taste and some items did look interesting. I am guessing they are trying to drum up some Regatta business with passing the flyers in the area.

We had an early dinner at Rum &Peas last night. Did not find the menu "uninteresting", and certainly not " bland". Had the Caribbean Mania burger, Churrasco steak, Bajan Ribs and Chicken Curry. Only negative of the food was that the curry had boned chicken and made it hard to eat. Everyone liked what they ordered. Only real negative was that they advertise "Traffic Jam 2/1 cocktails, but there is only 1 you can order. Last night it was Tequila Sunrise.
If you can get over the screwup on the drinks, it has an interesting menu, food we enjoyed, and $3 Caribs. We will be back.
Oh, by the time we left, (7:30 or so) the place was hopping.

Yes, the place has a nice vibe inside and the menu looked very interesting.

Authentic Caribbean curries have the bones in the meat; it adds to the flavor of the overall dish. The menu certainly does sound interesting! Another one to add to the list.

That's what I was going to say, like jerk, they just hack the bones with a big cleaver and throw the whole business in!!
