Have been here twice - once in 2007 and again in 2014. The food is expensive and overpriced as I think it is because they are trading on the Bob Marley connection. There is nothing special about the service in 2007 and the same 7yrs on. Though the restaurant keeps you free of traders selling their wares so you can... More

We did the shopping trip to a couple of outdoor malls and we were done early and decided to go to mama marley's for some appies and drinks. The prices were outrages and the drinks were terrible and our waitress was awful.

Decent enough restaurant, serving some amazing jerk chicken. However, it was very hot and stuffy, the staff were fairly average, and the food took a long time to come. There is a wide range of drinks on the menu, and the food menu is better than a lot of Jamaican restaurants. The prices were probably slightly expensive, but definitely geared... More

We had the people who took us from the cruise port and gift shops wait for us here while we stopped for a quick bite.

We stumbled across this place while shopping in town. The bar staff was very friendly and eager to serve. The drinks were average priced, but good.

We got the chicken stips with jerk sauce and they were good! Overpriced if you are staying at all inclusive resort. The atmosphere of the place is what makes it worth going.

We embarked on a shopping trip to the Taj Mahal (avoid). Our bus dropped us at 11am and wasnt due to pick up until 1pm. We had been in every shop and survived the piranhas trying to sell everything they had and were finished by 11.30. We went to Mama's for some lunch and cocktails, we waited a while to... More

Terrific menu but the wait was incredible. Although pleasant enough, after our waitress served us drinks she never came back so offer us appetizers. We were on the exterior of the restaurant and had to go find her after 20-odd minutes. Again a long wait for simple appetizers that could have been served in 5 minutes easy. The main course... More
