Though the Caribbean isles are well known to outsiders, Caribbean cuisine remains a hidden gem due to tourists frequently subsisting solely off a paste made from sand, ocean water, and puréed linen pants. Uncover the edible treasure of the tropics with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get a meal for two from Kool Katts Caribbean Restaurant in Niagara Falls (up to a $39.48 total value). The meal includes:
- One appetizer (up to a $9.50 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $14.99 value each)
Distinguishing themselves through proud authenticity, Kool Katts Caribbean Restaurant's chefs relocate traditional island flavours to the north with a menu loaded with jerk-seasoned savouries and sea-caught eats. Welcome taste buds to dinner with a selection from the diverse cast of appetizers, including fried plantain and sweet-potato chips, jerk shrimp skewers with pineapple relish, and deep-fried coconut shrimp ready to dive into a pool of seafood dipping sauce. For the main course, feast on jerk or curried chicken or opt for the traditional ackee and saltfish plate, a traditional Jamaican dish that narrates the story of love between fruit and fish by allowing diners to eat both together. Those seeking an adventurous alternative to typical cuts of beef can sample the oxtail or curry goat.
Colourful murals depicting important figures in Jamaican history and culture are splashed across the eatery's walls, allowing eyes to feast as ears munch on the sounds of authentic reggae, calypso, and soca tunes.

Additionally, on weekends guests can relax while listening to live reggae, jazz, or blues songs about running out of sunscreen.
