My husband and I loved the jerk pizza the best. Parking available. Friendly staff. I would recommend to friends and family. Cool bar.

This restaurant is located in the town & you almost hardly notice where you really are located when the ambiance chips in the moment you enter, well @ night i like sitting around by the bar area, great chill spot for the people that wants to chill in the town area....

I highly suggest market survey... More

Not bad, but we visited this resteraunt as part of a trip so we were told to bring limited money. The resteraunt was far more expensive than we expected so we literally couldn't afford drinks, but to be fair that's not the resteraunts fault. Jerk Pork was good, have had better but I've also had worse. Overall it's worth the... More

The food was excellent. We had curry chicken and shrimp cocktails. The band was amazing. The drinks were great also.

Had a group meal here on a saturday. Very quiet early evening but picked up gradually. When band started, around 2200, atmosphere was good. Food was average to good, nothing special.

This restaurant was recommended by a member of staff out our hotel in Ocho Rios. We arrived mid evening and the place was quiet; only one other group of diners. The restaurant was pleasant enough - clean and tidy. Our waitress was very friendly but service was a little slow. My curried chicken was not what I had expected; it... More

We went there on a early Saturday evening as we tried walking from our hotel but were molested every few metres by people asking for money or offering ganja..that seems to be the same story all over Jamaica so instead of heading into town of Ocho Rios we returned to the Mongoose Restaurant and sat outside. The drinks were okay... More

I have been to Mongoose a few Saturdays and find it to be a nice atmosphere. The food there has not been bad and the live band is great. The only down side is we have to wait a while for drinks sometimes, since they are normally very busy on a Saturday. Trisan the waitress was great...best personality!!!
