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

We went to Frenchman's Reef the first night after arrival in Treasure Beach. The location is perfect, just a beautiful place. However, we had to wait almost 1 1/2 hours before we eventually got our jerk chickens - and they were uneatable because they were completely dried out. So we just ate the vegetables and were glad to be able... More

Love this place. The staff are so friendly and the food is great. The view is perfect and the music cool. Wish I was there now. Definitely worth going to. Try the jerk chicken. It's perfect. Good icecream too.

This was a nice ambiance for a restaurant, right by the beach and with live music, drinks and food. However, it must have been an ital restaurant because the food was tasteless.
