Take a look at the kitchen and ask to meet chef/owner Michael. Both are very telling. The kitchen is immaculate. The chef is always wearing his chefs whites. The fish dishes of which we've had many are exceptional. The flavors and spicing are spot-on. The setting is perfect for both lunch (pre or post lunch dip) or dinner over the... More

In case you hadn't noticed, you are not in the USA / Canada / UK anymore, so stop b!tching about the "lack" of service. We live in Mexico, and Mexican time is very real, so, Island time is equally real. Relax. Enjoy yourself. The food & drink will come. Don't act like an entitled twit and you will have an... More

We loved Jam Rock so much we came here multiple times on our trip. The jerk chicken was our favorite! The head chef/owner Michael was what made this place my #1! Great guy and we loved meeting him.

Jam rock could be absolutely perfect but the fact is that the service is horrible. I have come to st. Kitts and other islands since I was 9 years old and I am not a "four seasons or 5 star traveller. " It took me 30 minutes to get a rum punch. They were rude and they didn't understand what... More

We decided to dine here because Shipwreck was too far up the beach. What a MISTAKE! The restaurant was not crowded. We sat and after 20 minutes no one came to take our order. We placed our order at the bar and it went into a BLACK hole. We watched several tables that came after us get served. After asking... More

Wow! Black sand beach restaurant with great views. The food was excellent - full of Jamaican flavor and nice variety. Both lobster tail & Jerk pork were delicious. Then the Carrot Cake was sinfully good! The staff was friendly & very nice to supply us with some Off for the mosquitos!

(Ask someone to direct you to this place; it is tucked away from the road) Enjoyed the drinks and food. Had fresh fish. This is not fancy, its comfortable beach front atmosphere . Full Bar. We spent several hours relaxing here and using the lounge chairs on the sand too.

We arrived on a Sunday evening to find a very surly waitress, who seemed quite displeased that we had shown up at 6:30 pm Then we ordered. I asked for grouper and my wife asked for jerk pork. My wife asked for just veg and the waitress insisted she had to order mashed potato or rice with the veg. The... More

My friend and I sat down to have lunch here. We had to ask for a menu after waiting ten minutes. Ordered one salad and one fish dish then waited an hour before paying for our water and walking out. The waitress told us it was " just coming " at 2pm and by 2.30 we were still waiting. We... More
