I went to bamboo blue on my birthday in 2016. First off, I'd like to say, well done on your location because it is extremely beautiful but so very hard to find. Felt like a hideaway which I love. I had the king crab dish and the challis drink that provided me with the option to take my challis home,... More

Although it was a little windy (the staff says its pretty constant), the food the service and the view were terrific.

Me and family had lunch at the Bamboo Blu, I had the Jerk Pork and rice, followed by the homemade coconut ice cream, the food was excellent and very tasty. The service was friendly, but a bit slow as this is Jamaica I guess it's what to expect. Overall a good lunch in a very pretty location, would recommend. 😎

Stopped by at this restaurant (and beach) while on a cruise. The water is warm, and the food is very good (a little pricey, but well worth it). Everyone there was extremely relaxed and friendly. I would go there again.

We felt at home already...our server Cassemie was outstanding and not to mention the Manager Mr Bunny Williams...he was accommodating and made sure we were comfortable and given top notched service. The Chef was out of... More

Places in this area (Ocho Rios) definetly cater to the cruise ships. If a ship isn't in town, a lot of places close shop. I went here on a cruise ship day so it was busy until about 2:30, then the place is a ghost town! they charge 10$ to rent a chair, which I thought was high. The red... More

This was the ultimate unplanned Beach Party...Bamboo Blu was a welcome unexpected treat at Bamboo Beach. Our waitress/entertainer/caretaker Brittany gave us such special treatment. The food was awesome... try the small balmy with codfish on top and do not leave there without trying the conch soup or the escoveith fish. The music; the water the atmosphere. We felt very safe...
