Best jerk chicken

I ate here twice last year with friends. Best jerk chicken thst I've had this far in Negril. Rice and peas along with the vegetables were both fresh and delicious. We also met both of the owners and they were so nice and friendly. Great cozy atmosphere with a Bon fire in the back area.

Went here for authentic food off the resort. I have no bad words or even thoughts about the place. Everything was great. Food grilled while we waited and had some drinks. Atmosphere very pleasant. Will visit again.

Been reading about De Bar for a while before visiting Negril with my wife. Finally made it up to the cliffs to see this spot for ourselves. The hype and 5 star reviews, I'll say, are very warranted. Found it strange that even the local cab drivers, didn't have a clue that this place existed. Had we not seen it... More

We made the rounds while in Negril looking for our favorite jerk chicken and De bar is it! Laid back atmosphere. Owner (whose brother owns 3 dives) cooks the chicken to perfection.

This was the best jerk chicken I have ever had. Redskin and Eddie are very friendly and accommodating. The chicken is served with yummy vegetables and rice. Be prepared to wait a little while for your food. We brought a game to play while we waited.

Had supper with a group of 10 or 12, and must say it is a true Jamaican experience. From the wood fire out back, to carting the coals in to cook on, to the laid back feeling, it was all good! Small place, usually one person doing it all, but the food and experience was worth it. Good food takes... More
