Caribbean
Traditional meets modern in this new age Caribbean cuisine restaurant brought you by Chef Tavel Bristol-Joseph of E&R Hospitality Group.

Named after the Canje pheasant, national bird of Guyana, Canje pulls inspiration not just from mainland Guyana, but from Jamaica to Puerto Rico, and all the islands in between. Our menu explores the cooking techniques, ingredients, and many expressions of vibrant food across the region.

Tucked away on the east side of Austin, this lively environment brings a unique cocktail program boasting both spirit forward and fruit driven cocktails and a small selection of natural wines alongside our inventive food menu.

    The only down side is it is SO LOUD, loud music and then people screaming over the music. It takes away from the experience

    Incredible service - not even just from my server, but from the food runners and hosts as well. Flavors unlike anything that I’ve had, drinks to die for, and unique desserts to top it off. Great portions too - I didn’t feel like we ordered much but I was very full in the best way. Truly loved every minute of the experience.

    Canje is my favorite restaurant in Austin! The food is delicious, the service is great, the music is usually Afro beats which I love. Some of my go to’s are the beef patties, wagu beef curry, jerk chicken, and make sure to get the roti to dip in the curry! Their cocktail menu changes from time to time which I love. I can’t remember the name, but I had one with Mezcal, watermelon, and jerk seasoning 🔥. We had a young Asian man as a server I think his name was John? He was awesome thank you for taking such great care of us! The whole staff was very attentive from the hostess to the food runners, we appreciate the team work attitude. Thank you, Canje 🩷
