“Great home cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Located across the street from Travellers Resort, Fattys' is a small wood building that offers great food. Nothing fancy. Just delicious food. There are only a few tables available. Being too tired to go out for dinner one night, I walked to Fatty's and ordered their fried chicken to go. It reminded me of my grandmothers chicken. Yum, yum! So tasty and plentiful. There was more food than we could eat in one sitting. The prices are RIGHT. If you would like to place an order to be ready at a certain time-no problem. I will return again and again and spread the word to all potential visitors. The fish is killer as well. Mama is an excellent cook, besides being so wonderful. This is a business worth supporting.

“Still the best value in Negril!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Discovered this place a year ago, and fell in love with the food.
The real "Fatty" is back! Call her Fatty or mamma....she is the sweetest
Jamaican woman with a real talent for authentic Jamaican cuisine.
Better than some 5 stars in the areas at a fraction of the cost.
Incredible flavour ,full plate,always satisfied.
You have to try it once......just come as you are....laid back
Ya Mon!

“Must, must, must go to Fatty's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Just found out about Fatty's. OMG, the best food, dirt cheap and one of the cutest, sweetest Jamaican people running it (and there's some pretty stiff competition out there for the cutest Jamaican!)

You get a ton of food, cooked with love.

You would never know it was there, or even open or legit, but it is. It is a small, typical family owned restaurant in Negril, so do NOT be expecting high end atmosphere. Plastic table cloths, plastic plates... You get the picture.
