Great food and atmosphere

This little place is charming, atmosphere at night is pleasant and authentic. Food is great, local and fresh. Service is friendly and helpful. Wine list is pretty decent with a few good surprises featured.

We made a trip form our resort at the CoCo LaPalm Resort for a dinner and sunset at this amazing place last night. We ordered the shrimp in basil and tomatoes sauce with rice, and catch of the day (fish) - both meals were exceptional. Having lived in South Africa, I am a little picky with seafood, however The Lodge... More

The ambiance at The Lodge at Tensing Pen is amazing! Imagine, having dinner on the cliffs, while listening to the waves crash against the rocks at sunset! This restaurant has an amazing view! The food and drinks were also delicious! The pumpkin soup was amazing as was the green pasta and shrimp kabobs! This is a must try when in... More

My husband and I have eaten at Tensing Pen regularly over the past couple of winters and have always enjoyed the food and the service – until our most recent visit. When they started doing sushi on the weekends we made it almost a weekly event. A week prior to our latest visit the sushi chef was not in on... More

Poor Management? ...You Be the Judge This review is a repeat of one posted earlier by the spouse of this guest. Poor management was with the staff member who responded to telephone questions from this guest's spouse and the matter of a specific chef was not a part of the discussion. Poor management was also in the restaurant and witnessed... More

My wife and I have lived here for the winters for the past 11 years. This used to be one of our favourite restaurants until the front desk decided to stretch the truth a little. I'm used to the truth stretched a bit at many local restaurants in Negril but not this one. On their sushi night, I called ahead... More

In many instances a hotel/restaurant manager is not standing on the spot when problems reported by guests occur. This time was different. All aspects of this guest's experience took place in the presence of myself the manager. When this guest called I heard the receptionist indicate that we had sushi on the menu. No question was asked about a sushi... More

we were there over Christmas 2014 and booked it again for Easter. We are considered "foodies" by our friends. We ate every meal over 8 days at TP, a first. On vacation, our best choices get hit a couple times at most, but we were so laid back on this trip, we just stayed put. If food were an issue,... More

This restaurant of a luxury but small spa resort is a lovely setting overlooking the pool and sea. The resort rooms range from $US120 to $US720/night. The restaurant dinner prices are in the $15-20 range. (2015) Jerk chicken pasta, beef and pork tenderloin, whole fish, lobster, shrimp in a few forms, etc. Wine list is OK from $30-120. Why inconsistent?... More

We were staying down the lane at Seastar Inn and we normally go to Catcha Falling Star for our "treat". This time we decided to also try out the Tensing Pen and we were very satisfied with the ambiance - the service and the tasty food. So great to have so many choices while in Negril.
