This is a local spot frequented by cab drivers, security guards and other workers. Our group stopped for a breakfast of an egg sandwiches, fried plantain, callaloo omlette, fruit plate, johnny cakes and Ting. All the food was great and reasonable too. Everything is cooked to order so don't be in a rush. Service was great and coffee good.

Fantastic breakfasts. We had Spanish omelettes with a side of plantain. Coffee also delicious with it's condensed milk. Can't wait to go again for lunch or dinner! All the locals very friendly and say hello. My favourite place on the holiday so far.

Ate here both stays in Negril. Had the fried chicken and he had the steamed fish. The chef was very friendly and allowed us to pick the fish we wanted. The price is very reasonable in comparison to some of the more "touristy" spots. They serve delicious meals, very authentic.

We went on a recommendation from friends that live in Negril. It felt like going into a good ol Mom and Pop place with good home cookin. Fried chicken was the best I ever had.

Tired and trudging down Norman Manley I saw the sign. I had heard about this place but had never eaten there. I went in and order fried fish with the usual sides in Jamaica. It took the normal amount of time that a cooked to order meal does. Great meal, nice quiet atmosphere, good price. I highly recommend it.

We stopped here for lunch on the way back from the grocery. I had the chicken salad and it was fantastic. My husband had a hamburger and it was not very good. Overall we felt like it was a good place and plan to return.

We were in Jamaica for 2 weeks in December and we had over 20 meals at Coletta's - They are that good. The only down side to talking about how delicious their food is and how great their service is that it wont be our little secret spot anymore. :) Coletta's is family run and they purchase their ingredients fresh...

Best food we had in Jamaica and also the cheapest. This is where all the locals eat. Great fried chicken. Operated by honest and friendly people.
