Delicious Tacos

We enjoyed eating at Frenchman's Reef during our recent stay in Treasure Beach. The jerked chicken tacos were truly the best I have ever had. We had to wait a bit for our food, but the atmosphere is amazing so we didn't mind at all. The waitresses were great and we had our drinks within a minute... read more

I loved the goat curry and my girlfriend loved her jerk chicken, but for some reason the vibe of the place just felt too much like home with how modern everything was. My favorite part about treasure beach was how simple everything was. Simplicity is important to me for a restaurant; I feel better when a place only serves 3... More

The only place I can count on to take between 30 minutes and an hour to deliver a drink. The slowest service in the world. Quite pricey too with cocktails costing similar to home. It feels like drawing a water out of a stone trying to get something.

The food here was good, but nothing particularly special. This was probably the slowest service we experienced while in Jamaica, so plan accordingly! Not a problem for us since we weren't in a rush to get anywhere after dinner, but it got a bit old after the second hour. I definitely would choose Jack Sprat's over this place.

The people who work there are wonderful! They gave us cash back everyday from the register when our cards wouldn't work at the ATMs in Jamaica. The curry coconut goat was incredible. The banana smoothies were amazing!!! My 2 year old son and I spent many a day hanging out in this place. The patio is big, there are kids... More

Loved the vibe in Frenchman's Reef. A lovely mix of locals young and old, and visitors. Early evening dance lessons (join in or rest as you like - so chilled!). Tasty fresh fish and fresh juices and smoothies. Dance competitions and friendly service. A must-do in Treasure Beach

The food is amazing and the view is UNBELIEVABLE; right beside the beach, 2 minutes walk away. The beach is clean and beautiful.

Service has always been great. We've been there for two different trips and they still remembered us when we returned. Food is average. Fills the void, especially if you're there for the wifi. Drinks are always perfectly cold. Gorgeous views. Unsure of the DJ guys....

Enjoyed pancakes here. Also enjoyed having evening drinks here. Lots of locals drink here. Relaxed atmosphere. Worth coming to see a band if one is playing.

Having returned to TB several times, I have always made it to Frenchman's Reef. Not only is it right in the center of "town" but right on the beach & a great meeting spot for virtually anyone coming to this area. Tables, chairs & tiki huts are there for a quick meal or hanging. I never feel rushed away when... More
