We stumbled upon the Roxborough during a day trip from our hotel in Runaway Bay to Dunn's River Falls. It is on the seafront as you pass St Anns Bay. It is located on the sea front between the main coast road and the sea. It was lunchtime when we passed by, so we decided to stop for lunch. We sat at one of the beach front tables and the lunch was so good that we decided to return for dinner that evening. When we booked we were told that there would be live reggae music (Fridays is live music night). When we got back that evening we noticed that there were many local Jamaicans dining there - always a good sign of value and authenticity in a tourist area. I had marinated conch (pronounced Konk) for my starter, my wife had salt fish fritters and our companions had seafood soup. For main I had fish in beer batter with sweet potato French fries. The fish was among the best I have tasted - crisp batter and succulent white fish. My wife has rundown shrimp (cooked in coconut milk) she said it was mouth watering. Our companions said their garlic shrimp and escoviech fish were to die for. After dinner we joined the locals at the bar and partied the night away to a great reggae band. It was a truly memorable night. We will head straight for the Roxborough as soon as we get back to Jamaica. Highly recommended if you want to get away from the plastic tourist traps and sample the real Jamaica
