Pewee's Bar & Restaurant is located on the cliffs of Negril, Jamaica and is situated between the only two castles on the west end of Jamaica. Breakfast and Dinner are served daily by our Head Chef/Manager Elvis, who has worked at this establishment for more than 30 years. In season the Bar stays open until the last man/women leaves.

I wish I had read the other reviews before I went there. I order one plate of food that I was told would cost 500jd. I gave a 1000jd bill and waited about 45 minutes for the food to arrive.

This place was real close to Home Sweet Home, the resort we stayed at on the cliffs. Very good food prepared by Jamaicans who know how to make great food.Their fruit smoothies were the best I ever tasted.

Always the food and atmosphere at this restaurant is wonderfully laid back and low key. Miss Georgie is still running the house and it was wonderful to see her.Elvis cooked us up a late breakfast and everybody just enjoyed everything about it.

40 years she has had this place. Go by and Say Hello. Pewee's is a local icon. Miss Georgie is Pewee's Mom. She would love the conversation and to see you too.
