we were made to feel very welcome and after our first visit were treated like old friends. The resteraunts is situated on the beach and you would expect the seafood to be good but it was straight out of the sea and onto the plate. Great venue great food

I feel its not eve worth my time to review such a poorly manned placed that has such great potential. The food was more than good based on feedback have gotten that its excellent, but my overall experience waiting over an hour for my food just made my experience horrible. Its no just me, other patrons shared same view. No... More

We were staying at Jewel Paradise Cove and was recommended this place by our glass bottom boat ride crew for having the best seafood and had to try it out. We must have gotten here at the right time during the day. There was only two other groups of people there when we arrived, so the service was great. Now... More

Stayed at Royal Decameron and wanted real Jamaican food. The wait was a little long for the food but not the drinks. Nothing fancy, outside on picnic tables. The waitress was great, always filling our glasses. Free wifi . Come back for drinks and wifi. The food was fantastic, and reasonable better than the hotel. Wish we would have found... More

We waited for 2 and 1/2 hours to get our food, there was only 1 other table of people. The waitress came over 45 minutes after we ordered to say they were out of the PEPPERED SHRIMP (was recommended by many we try). Then she said our order wouldn't be put in till the one other table there was served.

After a hard day of jumping waterfalls we decided to eat some seafood here. Generous parking and a nice atmosphere of tables and a beachy stage area welcomed us. However we had a very slow service experience with lots of mistakes in the ordering and billing. The steamed fish wasn't tasty and the music consisted of a loud, distorted YouTube... More
