“A Perfect Jamaican Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

If you are going to Montego Bay you need to make sure you stop at this restaurant at least once. A restaurant that is frequented by tourists and local alike. Located right on the main strip of Montego Bay, the service is friend and the food is excellent. You can never have a bad meal at the Pelican. You can have North American favourites, however, the local Jamaican dishes are the best. You get great value for your money and I will be back again.

“I LOVE this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Whenever I'm in Mo bay, I make it a point of duty to visit Pelican. On my last visit, I had cornmeal porridge and then my main dish was callaloo with fried dumpling, white yam and green banana. It was delicious--as usual. 5 Stars. I'll be back again. That is all.
