That lady who owns the place is ridiculously rude. That place is never busy because no one wants to eat at a over price place and be disrespected at the same time. Wish there was another Jamaican restaurant in naples because she sucks. If every Jamaicans in naples don't eat there then I will do the... read more

As somone very familiar with jamaican food my husband and i could tell the food was old and warmed over. It was over 30 dollars for just us two and we didn't even get drinks.. The owner doesn't want Haitians in her store. There is even a dress code. She makes you pay before you get the food as if... More

I visited for lunch. Ordered two dishes that were over $10.00 each, and had a couple of small pieces of meat, not much rice or vegetables. This looked like a meal served on a cooking show. The meat tasted warmed over. The waitress/owner was talking on the phone in a loud voice with a Jamaican accent, and it was kind... More

After seeing this Jamaican restaurant's Tamiami Trail location for a couple of years, and meeting the owner at an area farmers' market, we decided to try Del-Mel for lunch. It's a small storefront at the end of a strip plaza just east of Rattlesnake Hammock, and might be missed if potential diners aren't watching out for the location. Inside, it's... More

Have been this gem twice, I always get the curry goat. Love the hot sauce on the side with a cup of Pauline's seafood gumbo (Jamaican chowdah). Good flavors and tingz.

The food at Del and Mel is very good however the prices are not. Do not let the prices on the menu fool you some how they will get you to pay more then you think. The first time i went to this restaurant was a few years ago. I loved it and came back a few times until i... More

We were leaving Marco Island, wet and starving, when we spotted the Jamaican restaurant and made an immediate u-turn. Upon entering Del & Mel's the decor feels very dim and cozy. Every wall has at least 4 photos of Bob Marley. As my buddy raised his cell phone to snap a photo of the posters, a lady emerged from the... More

We had curried goat, jerk chicken, seafood gumbo, beef patties, egg fruit smoothies and key lime pie, all of it delicious. We saw the sign from the road, and pulled in, we had no idea what to expect and it turned out to be an unforgettable experience. Del is an amazing person who cooks quality meals with love.

To start off my girlfriend and I are carribean and just moved to Naples as we relocated with HERTZ CORPORATE, and were super excited to see a Jamaican restaurant on the way home from Marco Island Beach.
