“Mixed Review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We're a bit mixed about dining at Pushcart. I had a vegetarian dish, the Bushman stew. It was wonderful. A nice mix of legumes & vegetables in a spicy sauce on a bed of rice. It was nicely presented and the taste was delicious. My husband had a jerk platter with shrimp, chicken & pork with festival. It was nicely presented but the food was cold and dry - definitely overcooked and had been sitting around for a while. Not enjoyable.
We were there around 7 and the entertainment started. It was interesting. The group of three did a Jamaican version of folk music. It was something different than what we had experienced in other restaurants & bars in Negril. Once we realized what they were all about we relaxed and enjoyed the experience.

“Nice Jamaican food & Friendly Staff at Push Cart”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

I don't know what they do to the staff but these are the friendliest and most helpful waiters/waitresses in Jamaica. It is a fantastic atmosphere in the evening or day overlooking the ocean on the cliffs on the west side of Negril. Food is good, staff is friendly, and it is good value for your dollar, they even have live entertainment. Must visit, we make this our regular evening eating spot when in Negril.

“Dining on the cliff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Great place with a superb view at sunset. Good local specialities. Rum cake is not original. Reserve a table on the seaside.

“Authentic Local Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

After we enjoyed the sunset at Ricks Cafe, we traveled down to the Push Carts. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of food; very authentic food. We were in a party of four and we each tried something different; from curry goat to the catch of the day. Mmmmmm this is a definite stop for anyone wanting relaxed atmosphere, fantastic view, and excellent food.

“Pushcart is great for a "Semi-Nice" meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

The escoveitch is fantastic, the views are stunning, and the entertainment is usually very mellow and laid back. One downside is that the catamarans like to pull up and let the party people out to swim here. It can be amusing, but it's pretty loud and clashes with the vibe.
