Legendary malted milkshakes. Food is yummie and I would suggest trying the ackee and salt fish. This place is great for breakfast or lunch. Omelets made to order...scrum.

Unique place, great atmosphere. Not enough to do to spend more than a few hours so make it a visit on a day out, definitely recommend the lobster dinner. Aqua shoes a must as some reef in the area. Fab view of the Pelicans !

We visited here at the beginning of November and tried the curried goat and two appetizers including the egg rolls and the national dish of ackee and salt fish served on fried bammy.

In Montego Bay on business and was taken to the Pelican for lunch by local associates. Had the curried goat and it was so good we went back again the next day for the same thing. Prices are reasonable and be sure to add it to your list of places to try.
