Welcoming to internationals, great local food

I hate to be the tourist jumping to the first place I see my flag flown, but I have found some places pretty unwelcoming in Jamaica and this was not one of them. We were there at an odd hour, so it was really quiet and there was a lovely view of the beach and the ocean sound. The food... read more

if you are driving along the bypass from Ocho Rios towards Falmouth look out for this place. It's just where the road goes up into St Ann's Town set back on the right hand side. Whatever you do, don't miss it if you want to taste some great Jamaican cooking. The Roxborough is the white open air building in the... More

Service was mightily slow here especially given we were the only table in at the time but received wonderful cracked conch and grilled spicy lobster. This place might be busier if they were listed as an Ocho Rios restaurant rather than St Ann's as it would receive more exposure. It's not as if other restaurants e.g. scotchies, are in the... More

My friends and I were staying at an all-inclusive hotel in Ocho Rios and met some locals from St. Ann's Bay who recommended the restaurant. The restaurant is situated mostly outside under shelter with a great view of the ocean behind the restaurant and really big beautiful homes on the front side. The staff was lovely and treated us like... More

Being a regular to Jamaica, I have tried and tested 60% of the restaurants over 12 years and 80% in the parish of St Anne's. With the Roxburgh being high up on the list as a great place to eat and drink. In St Anne's bay, where Columbus first saw the coast of Jamaica and anchored in the crystal turquoise... More

We went there for lunch, unfortunately the linguini were not available, but the food we ordered was excellent and for a reasonable price. The location next to the sea is lovely. The staff was very friendly. Good place to coem back

We visited The Roxborough on two occasions on our recent trip to Jamaica due to reading about the restaurant here on Tripadvisor. We were based around 20/30 minutes away at an all inclusive resort in Runaway Bay, but we're so glad we made the effort to try it out. We had a fantastic time in a pleasant, safe environment and...

We stumbled upon the Roxborough during a day trip from our hotel in Runaway Bay to Dunn's River Falls. It is on the seafront as you pass St Anns Bay. It is located on the sea front between the main coast road and the sea. It was lunchtime when we passed by, so we decided to stop for lunch. We... More
