“Rehearsal dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The food was excellent here. The coconut shrimp is a must have. The staff was wonderful. Always smiling and ready to help. We had a table outside and had timed it perfect for sunset. The view was unbelievable. We had such a nice time. Can't wait to go back!

“Beautiful views, great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The food was wonderful and the location for a romantic dinner couldn't be any better. They have outdoor seating overlooking the ocean and if you time it right, the sunset.

As we were staying at the hotel on the same property, we ate here several times and weren't disappointed. We especially loved the coconut shrimp and shrimp pot.

The service was a bit slow compared to American standards, but on par for Jamaican standards- considering everything was cooked to order, it's worth the wait.

I would highly recommend eating here,at least once, if you're in Negril and especially if you're looking for the most romantic spot to have a special dinner.

Thank you for sharing your recent experience at Blue Mahoe while staying as guests of The SPA Retreat Boutique Hotel! We are pleased that you enjoyed the cliff side setting at sunset! Please accept our apologies if the fresh "farm to table" service was not well timed however we are thrilled that you felt the savory dishes were worth the wait! One love.

“Mango Creme Brulee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Came here specifically for the mango creme brulee and it was very much worth it. The texture was less like a creme brulee and a little bit more like a flan, but who cares...it was delicious!!!

Thank you for your review. We must agree the Mango Creme Brulee, prepared with fresh organic fruit, is one of our most delicious and invigorating desserts! We appreciate your note on the texture and will certainly confer with our pastry chef. We look forward to your return, one love!

“Good meal, pricey and smaller portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

food tasted great, we just wanted more of it - the rolled chicken with Calloo and goat cheese was great.

the apps are tiny and expensive, better off with a shared salad and entree

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

My wife and I ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at this restaurant while staying at the SPA Retreat for five days. Plenty of healthy options and variety. Significantly better than the food at other all-inclusive resorts we've stayed at in Negril.
