Fish was fantastic and the view can't be beat! There's something very charming about being shown your fish before it's cooked and knowing it's super fresh! My little one ended up having to use the bathroom last min and I was surprised by its cleanliness. Great afternoon visit, drinking red stripe and eating fish while staring out at beautiful waters,...

The food was the best! It is a small local hut right on the beach. Not a elaborate decor, but the food is amazing. The fish was absolutely delicious! The real deal when it comes to a actual hut on the beach! All locals and I see why they come there!

The daily menu depends on what was caught that day. We had Parrot Fish, octopus with okra, lobster and conch. All this plus drinks for $69. Everything was very spicy except the fish. We found out later that you can ask them to reduce the spice for you. We saw them cleaning our fish and cooking. It is very rustic,... More

It literally is a far out fish hut. A small hut, barely visible during the night and located a few feet from the sea wall. There is the hut, where you order food and across the parking lot is a washroom. There are picnic tables outside and you eat in the glow of the hut light and strings of Christmas... More

My friend and I were the only non-locals when we visited early in August. We were charged for three pounds of fish, and were served so little fish that we left and went back to our hotel to eat dinner. The fish we ate was good, but came with way more bones than either fish had to begin with. My... More

I have been to this restaurant several times and am always glad I came. There are simple tables in an open air setting, overlooking the ocean. You simply walk into the kitchen area and choose your favourite fish, from the catch of the day. Request that it is fried, or steamed and stuffed with local vegetables, such as okra. They... More

A taxi cab driver told my friend and I about this place and told us this is the best fish in Montego Bay, so we knew we had to go since we were sick of hotel food and wanted to get a taste of some local food. The fish here came out hot and wrapped in foil marinating with juices... More
