Great open air 2nd floor seating. Rented immediately and seated at the beat tab available. Immediate service. Local beers to choose from.

They acted as if they wanted us there and we weren't a nuisance to... More

I just wanted a light bite and the reggae wraps were perfect here. Reasonably priced and with friendly service. Close to the cruise port.

The food was really good, I had the Goat Curry and my husband had the Oxtail and of course we had the Red Stripe. I have never had Goat before, but if it all tastes like this dish at Mama... More

We had the jerk chicken and chicken fingers (for the kids). The food was excellent, I would have given a higher rating but the server was snarky and scolded us "americans" for using Jamaican money instead of American. We are Canadian btw.

They served a very large and tasty serving of oxtails for the price. The service was fast and friendly, and drinks were good. There is a souvenir shop as well.

We took a shopping tour with our resort and shopped around this place and had some extra time so we stopped in for a few drinks. Loved this place, the bartender was awesome, the atmosphere was great and the beer was cold!

The food was just ok and the drinks were made weak. Suggest finding another place for lunch. The atmosphere was ok though
