Belinda's

Rio Grande, Port Antonio, Jamaica
Improve this listing
Ranked #6 of 29 restaurants in Port Antonio
Cuisines: Jamaican
Description: This lady is an institution. She has a barbecue on the bank of the Rio Grande river at Port Antonio. You can only reach it by bamboo raft! I'm serious. You can google Belinda's Rio Grande Port Antonio and it will come up. This lady cooks the greatest spicy crayfish and fried chicken ever. Look at my profile- I've eaten all around the world, I'm not joking. I ate their today and it broke my heart to see other tourists rafting by and not taking their lunch there because they didn't know about it. This lady needs a break and Tripadvisor can help. Not out of sympathy, but just great food

This is seriously one of the best meals we've ever eaten, we took the raft down river and stopped half way for lunch at her makeshift shack. We had crayfish coconut curry, chicken fricasse, rice and dumpling. We both ate and bought our raft captain lunch too. (Kevin our guide was really fantastic). The food was simply phenomenal and Belinda... More

My husband and i still talk about the meal Belinda prepared for us while we floated the Rio Grande. She should be the chef at every hotel and restaurant in Port Antonio- or she should just move here to New York! It is a once in a lifetime experience to walk up to her riverside hut and see all the... More

If you visit the Port Antonio region you will be recommended to take a rafting trip along the Rio Grande, and very pleasant it is too. What is not always recommended is that you should pull up ashore and visit Belinda's. She cooks on a simple wood fired barbecue but produces the best ever spicy fresh crayfish and jamaican fried...
