The menu boasts local dishes dishes and all the favorites that you would enjoy outside of the country it is and available in US and Jamaican currency depending on the money you have. The menu prices are very reasonable. The curried goat with mango chutney was very tasty and the oxtail fell off the bone...

Recommended to us beforehand and it predictably lived up to its reputation. It introduced us to locally made Jamaican cuisine and by preference it was our last. Courteous and welcoming staff whose excellent service could put any resort to shame. Food and dessert were scrumptious and mouth watering! Well worth the trip!! Will definitely visit again!

This is my favorite restaurant in MoBay. My cousin lives in MoBay so he introduced us and we go every time we are there. I recommend it to everyone.

The Pelican was quick walk from our hotel. It was reasonable price, friendly wait staff, and delicious food!! They were also really helpful given we had a person with a food allergy in our group. Oh, and the malts are TO DIE FOR. Absolutely awesome!!!

The service was fast and friendly. Drinks were strong, just right for vacation. We enjoyed oxtails, curry chicken and bbq chicken, all were delicious. Can't wait to visit again.

My family and I were looking for a place to have breakfast. One of my local friends highly recommended this place and even came with us. As an international chef, I trusted his judgement. Based on food alone, the place has merit. Five of us went, we ordered 2 callaloo omelettes, 1 side of plantains, 1 side of breakfast potatoes,... More
