Old rice and peas and the chicken was well below average compared to what I experienced in other food spots nearby.

try the conch soup-its one of their specialties. We tried a variety of dishes, including the chicken curry and stewed chicken. I've eaten here many times since the 1980's and I've never been disappointed!

Well there is not much more to say after "Best Fried Chicken Ever"... because it really is the best. It is fried to perfection. Everything was good though and there was plenty to go around for tasters... We met the owner there. We also ate with the owners of Island Charters there, who run much of the great catamaran tours...

My wife Jenny and I have been going to Jamaica for the last 25 years. Our favorite destination is Negril and one of our favorite restaurants is Chicken Lavish.

Don't go there hungry but go there. The food starts cooking after you order it so it takes a long time to cook it to perfection, which they do. You won't be sorry you ate there and you likely won't eat there too often as it takes so long to get your food, but you'll remember it!
