We thought the food was great and recommend you stopping. We had the chicken, pork, and rice and peas. You can even jump in on a game of dominoes with the locals. Great prices also!

We had lunch there with friends. All shared jerk pork, jerk chicken, rice and peas. All were outstanding. Had to wait a bit, since the pork was not quite ready, but it was worth the wait. All were fresh off the grill. The counter lady...More

We stayed at a cabin on the beach pretty much across the street from this restaurant, so it was the first one we tried for Jerk Chicken. We had high hopes for a good Jamaican meal but the chicken was a real letdown and we...More

Great Jerk Chicken or Jerk pork. A whole pound of pork with rice and peas for 10 bucks! If you are on a budget or looking to experience what locals eat, please go there. Did I mention beer for $2!?

Got Jerk Chicken, was more like sweet and sour chicken. Was very disappointed as the place was rated well. Maybe you have to tell them what you want, but as a restaurant across from the big all inclusives I think they would have more initiative...More

went here on a 'recommendation' that it was the best jerk chicken in Negril. Well, when we arrived, they informed us that they were out of the rice and peas that came with it, and still charged us full price for the meal. Strike one....More
