Trevor is back on the grill and OMG chicken is so juicy so tender so full of flavor and all at a great price and sincere service. Feels like dining with family. Good conversation and drinks as well. By far the best jerk chicken in Negril.

My husband and I LOVE jerk chicken. We had jerk chicken at several places in Negril and this was by far the best we had. We found that the jerk seasoning/sauce wasn't very spicy at some places, I'm assuming they tone it down for tourists but we like it authentic and hot, and that's exactly what we found at De... More

Awesome atmosphere, friendly service and great food! I've only ever had the jerk chicken because it is so moist and full of flavour right to the bone! 3 Dives is good but DeBar is exceptional! May have to go back tonight :)

Debar has some of the best jerk chicken in Negril. It is a circular open-air style, thatched roof bar. Eddie cooks his chicken on a grill everyday. Just make sure when you get there that the chicken is ready or about ready, because if not you might have a wait. It is worth the wait, but a lot of people... More

We ate here one night while staying on the cliffs, and so glad we did. Love the vibe of this place, and we will be back.

It wasn't that slow a night when my wife and I walked in. Eddie, the host and proprietor, greeted us like old, family friends. We were friends, though: We had eaten at De Bar last year and had established a relationship. We had gotten to talking about who, what, why, where, when, and how, and it so happened that Eddie...

Not sure what to say about this place. when you travel to the JA like I did I was on a mission to find solid jerk sauce. Everywhere you go it will be available and although most are tasty. Grandma's sauce at De Bar will blow your mind. you will wait at the bar or fire if you like while... More

This is a classic place for excellent jerk chicken. It takes a but so plan on sitting and having a beer or two. Got some kick to it, but that's the point with jerk seasoning. This us a kick back place. Put on your jeans, flip flops and relax. Nothing fancy here but some great flavor on the plate.
