My friends and I loved this restaurant! The food is absolutely delicious! Do not be put off if some of the female servers seem a bit stand-off-ish. We notice this is part of the way a lot of Jamaican women act, and even still most of the servers here were not like that. The prices of swordfish are really good... More

One of our dining out highlites! Situated over the water, with a perfect location for sunsets. My wife and I had the Lobster Mac and Cheese, on the recommendation of our server, who said it was THE best dish on the menu. She was right! There were big chunks of lobster in EVERY bite, and a nice blend of real... More

All eight of our group enjoyed not only the food but the spectacular view overlooking 7 Mile Beach and the Caribbean waters too. I had lobster thermidor that was cooked perfectly but the flavor (herbs & spices) didn't appeal to me. All the others raved about their choices including the lobster mac & cheese and curried shrimp. The prices are... More

This is a great stop for a nice local dinner! We had the Lobster Thermidor which was amazing and we noticed, much cheaper than other local places. The view of the bright blue water from the top deck is stunning.

There was no one there when myself and my partner turned up for lunch. We assumed they were closed so my partner asked if they were open, the young lady said they were with no enthusiasm or energy at all. The welcome was typical of what I was expecting as my partner who is a Jamaican native said that maybe... More

Yup, it's great! This was on my restaurant to do list as I'd read so much about the awesome lobster mac n cheese. Did not disappoint! Big chunks of tender lobster. Very clean, very good waitress, and incredible view dining upstairs under the stars. Tried their papaya margarita and was so delicious, ordered another. Great dinner with friends.

We have been to Swordfish Restaurant before and thought we would go again this year and I must say this place NEVER disappoints!! The food is delicious, the time to wait for the meal is very fast for the area, wonderful staff, very professional and friendly, we highly recommend this place. We had many wonderful meals at Swordfish.
