Had steam fish in coconut milk there last night and I'm still sick. First disappointment was lack of pepper in dish as I'd requested it to be spicy. After bringing this to the attention of the server, I was brought spicy coconut sauce which is the chefs version of hell. About 3 scotch bonnet peppers mince in the sauce. It's... More

Great food. Waterfront seating available. Reasonable prices and good portions. I had the fish tea (fish soup) which was excellent. For entrée I ordered the jerk conch with rice and peas, which was great. The owner was friendly and made us feel at home.

This was a nice break from our hotel sitting under a thatched roof, hearing reggae music. The service was very nice and gracious but the food took a long time to come and was not very good.

A delightful little spot. Somewhere between a road-side stand and full sit-down restaurant. Right on the water. We ate under a small thatched gazebo right on the water. Husband got the lobster -- half grilled, half in the coconut sauce. Very fresh -- perfectly cooked -- he was happy. I got the jerk tofu -- perfect for a vegetarian. Wait... More

Very rustic little seafood spot right by the sea, we ate in a thatched hut by the waterfront as the sun set, it was charming and romantic. Each hut is lit up using antique lanterns, the huts are intimate and cozy.....allows you to really observe the beautiful night sky and star gaze

We wanted a break from the formality of our luxury hotel and this place came with some recommendations. It looks a little basic on the outside, but fear not - the service is warm and the food is very good. (And relatively inexpensive). We were delighted to find lobster on the menu as we had struggled to find this elsewhere... More

We loved sitting in our own individual huts. Conch chowder was great. Coconut shrimps were a bit small but flavorful. Jerk chicken was average. The people were wonderful.

I personally dine at the sky beach from time to time and which I enjoyed thoroughly. However last week I took some of my clients there and they we very very impressed. The food was great and they certainly loved the prices. This sea-front property has a great rustic out-door ambiance....Highly recommended.

To most of my friends I am the biggest food critic they know... Sky beach had the best red snapper I have ever eaten! You get to select your own fish out of an ice-packed igloo cooler, cooked iwth the head on. The flavor and freshness of the fish were just incredible.

After many trips to Jamaica, I feel compelled to write a review about this restaurant. It was one of the most enjoyable, unique dining experiences I have enjoyed there. The huts with seating for four to six add so much to the experience along with the fact that you go to an ice-packed Igloo cooler and select your very own... More
