We went for dinner on a rainy night. Food was fresh and hot? We ordered curried chicken, oxtail, curried conch. It came with slaw and fresh, hot rice. These were the most flavourful curries we have had. Our only complaint was the mant tiny bones we had to gingerly pick through. We would advice using boneless meat or larger pieces... More

One word "delicious"! We went twice, the snapper escoveitch was the best fish I have ever had and I am an avid fisherman who enjoys cooking and eating fresh fish. Go and try it, a true Jamaican experience!

If you like local Jamaican food this place is a good choice. Friendly service, fun people watching & the food is good. We ordered pan fried jerk snapper & oxtail. Prices are reasonable.

We had the chicken jerk and my wife could not get enough of the sauce. The smoothie was also great! Quick service, friendly people!

Its hard to know where to eat in Negril but Sharks in a great find. Shark and his wife Juliette prepare all the food. Everything is always fresh and spicy. I always get the goat stew and my wife gets fried fish. Both are spicy,

This small and unassuming little restaurant across from Tensing Pen serves GREAT FOOD. Delicious Oxtail and curried chicken. Our young waiter Jazim ( I'm not sure I spelled it correctly ) was charming and informative regarding the ins and outs of local life. It's worth crossing the street for some authentic food and people.
