We had dinner here on Saturday June 13th and there was one other table besides ours. The food and service were very good, it just felt so sad. Lovely atmosphere and lots of possibility for the future.

Crab and corn chowder! That's all I can say! I am obsessed with it. It is so creamy and so good. If you're in Negril, stop by for drinks and the chowder. It makes my heart happy. Dwight, the property manager was excellent. The chefs Tristan and the other one (im sorry I forgot his name) went above and beyond... More

We ate here for the 2 for 1 Thursday special because we arrived late and we're too tired to venture out to eat. We were surprised how good it was considering it was a hotel restaurant. We liked the decor and ambiance, but it does not have a sea view. I'm not sure it's worthy of a visit if you... More

I have eaten here three times over the last two years and always really enjoyed my meal. Everything was delicious especially the appetizers, salads and soups I have tried. I would recommend their corn and crab chowder, their jerk cashew salad and my friend loved their crab cakes. My husband said his chicken was a little over cooked. I have... More

Yummy selection offered on the beach. We chose from chicken, mahi, goat, lasagna, veggies and an amazing soup. 2for1 night was great and the Chef very accommodating as my husband and I both have some food allergies. I believe the Exec. Chef is Ansel and he couldn't have been nicer.

Bongo's is located at the Sandy Haven Resort where we stayed for our vacation. My wife and I ate there on a few couple occasions and the food was excellent. Try the Jerk Chicken Pasta, you won't regret it.

Food was very good quality and the choice adequate, but for the price, we expected a view and/or special ambiance. The restaurant has very little ambience and is best described as very neat and very clean. The resort itself is relatively new so why they built a beach front resort and put the restaurant facing the road is a complete... More
