We ordered a carry out for dinner and had to wait over 20 minutes after we arrived. We called in 20 minutes before so we were disappointed to not have the food ready when we arrived. We have written favorable reviews for this place before but they did not live up to the expectations this time.

I was so incensed by our visit to this establishment after going out of our way to find it; I am compiling my first review. How this restaurant has such a high rating is a mystery. The food can only be called mediocre at best. The owner does not seem to understand the concept of customer service. She is rude... More

We were driving on 41 and I glanced to my right and saw Jamaica food. We are big Bob Marley fans so we thought we would check it out. Yummy Yummy food. Don't be afraid of Del the owner, she is a trip! All in all it was a great experience.

We arrived at Del & Mel's on Friday at 2:15pm, too late for the lunchtime specials, so my wife ordered the Jerk Chicken Meal and I had the Jerk Pork Meal. We also had Mango & Pineapple smoothies, which were superb - delicately flavoured with the fruits each distinguishable, as were the coconut milk, vanilla and sorrel. The Jerk meals... More

We wanted Caribbean after the usual, somewhat monotonous seafood/American fare on the strip and found this family owned Jamaican restaurant on Trip Advisor. Thoroughly enjoyed the personal nature of our dining experience. The food was delicious and conversation fun. Everything home cooked with food from farmers market. Try meat patties!

Really wanted to check this out, so many good reviews. Well we came , we ate , we left. Slow service seemed to overwhelm the waiter, cook whoever. Just a few people in but he seemed to be in the back reheating the food and serving upfront. the mother came in after the food was served. Very dry, dry jerk... More

My husband sampled Pauline's Jamaican cuisine at the Marco Island Farmer's Market. He thought it was delicious and wanted us to try the Del & Mel Jamaican restaurant. It's located in the shopping plaza on the SE corner of US 41 and Rattlesnake Hammock rd., Naples. We found the restaurant to be small, tastefully decorated, with Pauline, owner and cook,... More

Based on other trip advisor reviews we decided to try this restaurant. We were the only ones in the restaurant so were a bit concerned. However we found the food to be truly yummy. the smoothies were delicious. We tried the strawberry and banana. Our entrees were superb. The jerk chicken was flavorful and was served with rice and cabbage... More

After finally stopping by and experiencing dinner at Del-Mel, my husband and I thought back to all the times we drove by looking admiringly at it and wondering how the food was, and we greatly regretted not stopping sooner. When we did finally stop, it was truly a fantastic event that featured some of the best food we have ever... More

Great meal at a very reasonable price! We did take out, but the wait for the food is very pleasant due to the great sound system and Jamaican music. Try their smoothies!
