My wife and I have been frequent visitors to Jamaica for more than two decades, and Fatty's is a place we return to year-after-year! The food is delicious (lobster, shrimp, and chicken) and plentiful. The hospitality is also first-rate! Ask to meet Mr. Black -- he is a terrific host, and a great chef! No visit to Negril can be...

Had the most amazing fish and rice. The restaurant is under new ownership and was a favorite years ago. Mr. Black took care of us and made sure we were well fed. Not so easy to find as it is set back from the road. Rustic setting. Good food

had read reviews and walking down street one of the staff on the street was advertising two for one lobster. Sounded good to me for 25.00. Took forever for food and bill was 35.00. They tried and tried to explain math to me. So ask before you leap. And the tails were frozen.

We arrived very late and the cook (owner?) apologized profusely because she had just had a run on the food so was very behind. She dug out some Red Stripes for us. She mentioned she still had some curry chicken around. But would have to cook anything else from scratch. We told her we would be fine waiting and would... More

Real Jamaican food, Met the man him self, you have to visit. They deliver also. Excellent choice if you are self catering or feel as though you are having the wool pulled over your eyes else where. Must reach Morning, Day or Evening. Speak to Fatties he will kick start your trip. Delroy Chester

I come to Negril once a year. This is my fave spot. No glitz. Just good authentic Jamaican food at unreal prices. Forget a menu. You order what is being prepared for that day., unless you make a special request the day before. Enjoy!

I am a vegetarian, and even though its a seafood restaurant, Mr Black made me the best plate of veggies I had in Negril. He brought the right mix of spice and heat and freshness. I went back twice more in my week in town. It's my new favorite restaurant in Negril.

We are 4 middle aged crazy Canadians who went there for lunch today. We were brought there by a local young man who we have come to love and introduced to Mr. Black. We had the chicken, and 3 orders of lobster. All of it was simply delicious, presented well & cooked by the owner. If you visit Negril, definitely... More

I was staying across the street at Travellers and could not find this place after dark (It’s across from Travellers behind a nail or hair salon) so I went for lunch one afternoon but they only had fried chicken which I did not feel like eating. I spoke to Michael and arranged to go the following day for lunch. He... More
