My wife and I ate here twice last April. I got the jerk chicken obviously. The second time I got the sweet and sour chicken. All was very good and Doc came out and chatted with us. First time was the wife's birthday and everyone sang happy birthday to her. That was a very nice touch! We'll be back.

Everything we ate was delicious! The curry chicken, fried chicken, garlic lobster and jerk chicken were out of this world! The owner Doc is so friendly and down to earth and they stay open late. This restaurant is a must when going to negril!

Yes, just another place where you can enjoy chicken, but not real "jerk chicken". But it's a large place and comfortable.

it was our 10th time to Negril and our first time to Chicken Lavish. The food was soooo good we ended up going about 5 times. Doc the owner, raids his own free range, chickens, no antibiotics or hormones, just the real deal. I highly recommend Chicken Lavish and can't wait to return.

We always have our first or second meal at Chicken Lavish when in Negril. Doc runs the place well, and the food is always first-class. Great Jamaican cooking. He doesn't even ask what I want, just knows to bring the Conch soup and Curried Conch. Tender and rich and nicely spiced! Drinks and meals more than reasonable. Well worth the... More

First of all, no complaints about the food, it was pretty good. However we were less than happy with the owner who, when we phoned to book a table, led us to believe that he was laying on a free shuttle to take us to the restaurant. Once we were there it soon became apparent that not only would we... More

This was my 9th visit to Negril, Jamaica and I have never missed going to Chicken Lavish for a meal during those visits, sometimes more than once. They have the coldest beer and the best chicken ever. But you go for the "World Famous" conch soup. My husband thought I was crazy for ordering soup on his first visit. Now... More

The food was authentic and tasty (try the creamy chicken) the the rum smoothies were off the chain. The management makes you feel welcome and will sit and talk/drink/laugh with you. I love this place

We enjoyed fantastic food - lobster and jerk chicken - and a great conversation with the owner. It was recommended by a local and worth the ride there!
