I call it the budhar bar

It is mesmerizing and refreshing a must visit yet little expensive but cannot afford to ignore. A super quality property and the bar is an experience in itself. Do try jerk shrimps as starters a real good taste if you are jerk and shrimp fan. I called it a budha bar because you feel the bliss around

A terrific location to enjoy delicious contemporary Jamaican fare. I would suggest going on a Friday and enjoying the live entertainment of the Jolly Boys. Or if you go for lunch you can enjoy the beautiful vista of the coastline.

Stayed at geejam last April with my fiance and the bushbar was the perfect hangout spot. What can I say the food was great, chef and staff really takes good care of you all you have to do is ask if they have it they will make it if they done they will do their best to get it and... More

Although this was not my first time for dinner at Geejam, I thought it was worth a review. Hidden amongst the foliage and forest in Portland is this little gem where we were warmly greeted by the barman and co-owner. Unfortunately on this occasion, there was no live music, but on our first visit there was a great Raggae band... More

Great, elegant restaurant. I wish it was local, because we would eat there at least once a week. Made us feel like we were their best friends. Food was more than excellent, drinks were yummy. Friday night entertainment by the Jolly Boys not to be missed! Thank you Steve Beaver for an enjoyable stay.

Bar staff even let you mix your own cocktail which you can make up as you go along. Visiting bands, especially the Jolly Boys, immerse you in the Jamaican sound and views over the caribbean add a touch of romance

The food and cocktails at the Bushbar are gorgeous! The staff are wonderfully friendly and the views are spectacular. The Bushbar is must do if you are in the area especially on a Friday night when The Jolly Boys perform live.

Checked the reviews on line and was very excited to go for dinner, We drove and signage from main road was not good. It is a white small print on a navy blue back ground which was very difficult to see at night. I called ahead to make reservations as recommended. They only have eight tables and Rose the lady...

Hello Jennx, I thank you for your review, and obviously feel bad that your evening started off the wrong way with the difficulty in finding the property, followed by your welcome at the Bushbar. I’ve subsequently had a word with the chef, to find out why your food wasn’t perfect, and rather than lay blame on anyone or anything, I’d... More
