I walked to get some jerk chicken b/c this place was recommended to me. The jerk chicken was the best and the girl at the counter was really nice. I will be back there again soon. A lot of food for the price.

Definitely the best, or at least amongst the best. Great vibe with excellent food and prices. The restaurant sits in the heart of Negril.

very casual, family-owned restaurant -- paper plates and plastic ware, but the food was delicious. Locals highly recommended it and we would go back for more.

Small local joint located across the street from the beach (i.e. has the feel of a beach picnic rather than that of a 3 Michelin star restaurant). Service and food quality were exceptional. This place clearly holds itself to a higher standard than other local...More
