In my opinion one of the best breakfast spots I've found in Negril. Proprietor Big Roy and hostess Marcia made our visit here FANTASTIC! Friendly, rustic, environment topped off with a great little reggae combo for Sunday brunch made for a memorable experience.

Breakfast menu was far too expensive for the amount received. Great service for the time I spent waiting as I ordered my food to go. Much more affordable places on the strip. My boyfriend loved his omelette 👍🏽

We generally travel to Negril yearly, and have always eaten at least one breakfast at Goa during our visits. But this past time (September 2016), we were especially bowled over by their prices: $42 plus tip for a no-frills breakfast for three adults, for food we would only deem average. Definitely not recommended for the price!

We decided to eat breakfast here. The food was fantastic and fresh, with fresh squeezed orange juice and blue mountain coffee. The staff was very friendly.

Ate here a couple times. Best item I had was the grilled cheese and tomato sandwich. Fries weren't cooked but good. Service good, but tacky to put "Tip not included" on bottom of bill.

I had heard about their banana pancakes on a travel forum and I have to admit they were delicious! My wife had an omelet with callaloo and she said it was delicious as well. We will be back!
