“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

We were lucky enough to stay at the Spa Retreat and chose to dine at Blue Mahoe for 90% of our meals. Everything we ate was excellent and the prices really reasonable. Just the food alone is enough to rate 5 stars and that doesn't take into account the great staff and stunning views of the Caribbean. I had the snapper (both pan fried and grilled) 3 our of the 4 nights we dined there. It is DIVINE and only $14!!! What a bargain. Other must trys include the fish tacos at lunchtime and the banana pancakes and coconut French toast and breakfast. My husband loved the shrimp
Pot. The cocktails are the freshest I've ever had... Literally the fruit is cut up right before your eyes to blend into something delicious. This place deserves to be moved toward the top of the list of Negril restaurants!

“This Place is NOT on the Cliffs!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

I don’t understand why people keep giving this place kudos’s for being in such a beautiful spot. It’s NOT on the cliffs. It’s at the very bottom of the cliffs. You can even see the German Bar from this place. I was so disappointed. I wanted to leave as soon as the taxi dropped us off. They actually claim to be situated on the cliffs on their website which really makes me mad. Sure it’s beautiful…it’s in Negril..But it doesn’t come close to the atmosphere at Xtavi, Ivan’s at Catcha Falling Star or the Rockhouse. If you want the cliff experience don’t pick this place to dine. That being said their staff ROCK…they kept cracking me up! The food was good too. I had some dynamite Coconut Shrimp and Stuffed Chicken. Yummy

Thank you for choosing to dine with us in Negril, Jamaica! The SPA Retreat Boutique Hotel & Blue Mahoe Restaurant is in fact the first property on the West End located at the very center of Negril. Just as the beach sand turns to cliff you will find "Negril's Newest Gem", perched on a bed of coral reef. You are correct, we are not as high up as Ivan's. However, we do offer an incredible panoramic view spanning from the long stretch of 7 mile beach across the ocean and up the West End Cliffs. With the beach lit up across the way at night, it truly is an unforgettable outdoor dining experience. We do hope you will consider returning again one day, one love!

“Good meal, but not Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

This was our second year dining at Blue Mahoe Restaurant. The service is fabulous, the food was great the first night we had dinner, but the second time was not as good.
The restaurant is very beautiful and relaxing!
Enjoy

“Great for both breakfast and dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Beautiful setting with an awesome view, friendly staff, and great food. We tried it for brunch, and came back the next day for dinner. The only thing keeping this from being a 5 is the value - it's a bit expensive for the area.

“Food With a View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

There is not a better place to enjoy a meal in Negril than Blue Mahoe. My wife and I enjoyed it so much we ate most of our dinners and a few lunches there. The lobster was great and the fish was fresh and delicious. It's very clean with friendly staff.
