“Romantic Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Their grilled pork with rosemary is very good, as well as their nutty grouper and escovitch snapper. It was so good that we visited a second time on our trip.

“Some of the best food on the West End”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

The grilled lobster, prepared very simply, is not to be missed! And the tenderloin.....mmmmmm! Even though it's a bit more dressy than the average Negril restaurant, it's more like eating in the kitchen of a close friend. The staff was quick and attentive all during dinner as well.

“Fantastic food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The dinners here are hands down delicious. The chef is happy to customize whatever is on the menu for my wife, who does not like a lot of spice. This is not a large place, reservations are most likely required unless you are staying in the resort. The ambiance and view are amazing.

Fantastic place, we are already booked for our next trip to the hotel.

“Honeymoon memories in the lodge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We spent 5 days at the Tensing Pen and had our wedding, wedding dinner and numerous meals in the Lodge at Tensing Pen. We may be jaded because we were married there, but the food really is wonderful. We were lucky to be able to be able to relax on the couch and smell as the chef prepares for the day's dinner. The wonder smells of garlic and butter and curry and jerk float through the dining room, tempting you for dinner, which is at 530pm if I remember right. We had lobster, shrimp, pork, pasta...everything his prepared with love and the plates come to the table well appointed. We have only two compaints with the Lodge's menu. The drinks are pricey (be prepared to pay $9.60 a drink before you leave an extra buck, so you might be drinking a few extra Red Stripes. The appetizer choices are pretty slim. That said, the views at sunset, overlooking the pool to the ocean with the rocks is beautiful and should be enjoyed. We look forward to seeing our new friends again for breakfast and night time drinks, enjoying the hand carved woodwork and stunning views that make the Tensing Pen an exceptional destination.
