The PEOPLE may be reliable. However, Trip Advisor ratings are so easy to 'game' that they are pretty worthless.

I'm referring to the reviews of actual people that have been there. No different than people posting their experiences and trip reports here.

As I said, way too easy to game. All people have to do is register again and again and again and post a great review for their family member that owns a certain restaurant or other business. Happens ALL the time....

Didn't eat there but stopped by on our way to the airport. Really looks cute and menu looks good!

I'll agree to disagree. A lot of reviews are totally legit.

Little Jerusalem is no. 1 in Simpson Bay on Tripadvisor, I went there 2 weeks ago with 2 friends, we got severe food poising.

That is just an example.

You can trust what feels ok for you.

"Severe food poisoning " as in requiring a visit to the ER ( as would be needed)?
That's quite a damning statement, but I hope you are feeling better by now and can eat solid foods.

We are on island now and had dinner there twice. We were very happy with the food, menu, service and atmosphere. We enjoy different places for different reasons. This is casual dining with an interesting menu.

Couldn't agree more. In Italy there is a restaurant that has the best Tripadvisor reviews of the whole town. There is just one problem: It doesn't exist.

Previously posted about this place in "New Restaurant" Thread last month. Stopped in for lunch and found the food to be very good and seasoned just enough to let you know it was there but not spicy enough not to eat it. Had the Mahi and Johnny cake sandwich with French fries. Service was good(only another 2 tables were occupied). will definitely go back on our trip next year.
