Nice and friendly

Friendly staff. Food was delicious and well priced (especially the lobster). Very nice and relaxing to sit outside and listen to the waves.

We came to enjoy the early afternoon at this beach which was a little calmer than the beach near our villa. The staff was super friendly and let us hangout at an outdoor table as long as we kept ordering beer and food (not a problem for our large group of 11).

The place was nice and the staff was friendly. However the service was slow and we waited almost an hour to get our food. The food was not good. Reasonable prices though and i'm sure it is a perfect place for drinks.

Curried goat and panini was a good lunch for a good price and location by the beach is nice. Be prepared to wait - it took a bit less than an hour before our meals were served.

The Frenchman's Reef was recommended by a local as a great place to get drinks and relax. It's very popular with tourists and locals alike and you can chill by the bar, on one of the decks or out on the great black sand beach.

This restaurant is located right on the beach and offers a great view, especially at sunset. The Ital Stew was very good and filling. My favorite though was the veggie fritters. The service is a bit slow, but when you have a great view its tolerable. The restaurant accepts credit cards which is a plus if you have limited cash,... More

While we were in Treasure Beach we found that there were a lot of roadside places. Frenchman's Reef was the first sit down restaurant we encountered, and we were hooked, coming back 3 or 4 more times for dinner and breakfast. The service was attentive and efficient, the prices were reasonable, the food was VERY good, and we felt very... More

This restaurant is what a Jamaican restaurant would be in America. Run by Americans. I went there almost every day during my week stay even though it's just okay. One reason I went way for the wifi. The other is for three cheap drinks. The staff is VERY nice. But the food is close to horrible. Especially if they try... More
