“Extremely nice owner/cook/bartender/friend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

After sitting there for 5 minutes you will understand why I took a few minutes to write this. The place is a little rough but hey your in Jamaica. The food is delicious,made fresh,and made right. It's a little hard to find but worth finding. If you do plan on going bring Bentley some Old Bay,he has a hard time getting it and tell him his fishing friend told you to bring it. It was a great time and made our trip extra special. Thank you Bentley you are a great person and a great cook!

“The Top Spot in Negril”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

This was my 2nd trip to Negril and my 2nd trip to visit Bentley and eat his unbelievable food!! Everyone else's reviews are accurate in regards to his location, menu, and his cooking talent. Bring a healthy appetite and a fun attitude and you will be so glad you visited. I would NEVER go all the way to negril and NOT eat and visit with Bentley --- and you should not either!!

“A must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Bentley is a true character and one heck of a chef. As stated in precious reviews, make sure you call ahead in the a.m. if you want to do lunch. The portions are huge and everything is really good. His place is up approximately 300 yards on the right hand side of the road at the top of the hill.

“Bring your appetite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

Just up PeeWee Lane across from Blue Cave Castle is one of the best restaurants in Negril. Bentley is a great guy as well as an excellent chef. Our group of eight had crab cakes,snapper, grouper and fried chicken. No one came away disappointed. Call ahead or just walk up the hill to make arrangements but be ready for a bear hug once you reach the top of the steps.

THanks Bentley for a truly enjoyable dining experience.
