This was our third trip to Negril and we had been to Presley's on our two previous trips. We decided this time we would like to go twice, so we went early in the trip and again on our last night. It's always fun to go see him ahead of time and decide what to have. We gave him some general ideas of what we like and he made sugggestions, good ones at that. On our first night we had coconut shrimp, a truly unique dish, NOT the breaded/fried version we were used to. When the meal came there was a huge serving of shrimp - I assumed the mound of shrimp was on top of something else, but it was all shrimp - there must have been a pound of it and it was delicious. On our return we both had snapper, mine done spicy on request. Once again, the portions were huge and everything was perfect. Even the side dishes were a cut above everywhere else not just filler as an afterthought. You will not find food any fresher or better prepared anywhere in Negril. Prices are not low (I think we paid $30 per plate for the shrimp, $25 for the chicken) but you get what you pay for - Fresh, well prepared, large portions, and the unique meal in Presleys' small establishment (even though capacity doubled to 4 tables!) is a treat in itself. It's fun to visit with Presey before and after and we will certainly go back whenever in Negril.
