Missing Sips & Bites!!

We were staying next door at Rockhouse and found ourselves eating here for breakfast and lunch. The food is on point and very authentic. The prices are unbeatable. It is basic in here, with some plastic chairs and rustic tables, but the food is delicious and thats all that matters. The service is a... read more

I always have to stop by here when I'm in Negril. Numerous times since 2011, when we discovered this gem in the cliffs. Be sure to get the fresh juice. The chef and service are both amazing. This is a home cooked meal with a special feel!

Sips & Bites is a sweet open air restaurant right next to the Rockhouse. We visited a few mornings for breakfast and usually had the place to ourselves. Order the french toast- you will not regret it!

Went to Sips and Bites after arriving in Negril. It felt like your Grandmother's kitchen, just the Jamaican version. The brown stewed chicken was delicious! My guy had curry goat and he cleaned his plate.

Went for lunch with a group of 8, and had the place to ourselves. Menu choices are on a blackboard as you walk in, and offer a nice variety. I had the Curried Chicken, which I rate as one of the best I've had on the Island. Others in our group had a variety of dishes, and all agreed this... More

If you want some real home cooked Jamaican food this is the place. Had the Brown Stew Chicken and it was sooo good. We also had curried goat and snapper at our table. We all loved our meal. The fresh assortment of vegetables that comes with were fantastic. Service a bit slow but goodness takes time. Relax, you're in Jamaica!

We went for dinner and the menu is on the blackboard - good Jamaican fare. They do not serve alcohol but no problem as the store next door has cold red stripe to drink with your meal. We had the complimentary vegetable soup and my wife had red snapper and I chose the brown stew chicken. Both came with breadfruit,... More

A not-to-be-missed source of the best Jamaican food you can get. Too many delights to mention apart from the delicious fried dumplings. Don't judge by appearances, judge by the food; you'll find yourself going back for more.

We had been having lunches at the Rockhouse, where we're staying, but today decided to try whatever we found on the road that looked promising. Surprisingly, that was just next door at Sips&Bites. We had not read TA reviews, so our opinion was not biased by what we had read. Sips & Bites had the best curried goat I have... More
