“Best restaurant in our tour of Jamaica!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We travelled all around Jamaica in January and this was by far the best restaurant that we ate at. Our first time at Jake's we had no reservations and the place was packed. We took a seat at the roadside dining area (not the more desirable beachside dining area). After just a few minutes the manager (I assume) asked us if we would like to sit on the beach to eat--they had a table set for us at the water's edge with candles all around--sooooo romantic. We had a couple of drinks, I had a very tasty pumkin pasta and my husband had the lobster (which he said was just as good as at Little Ochi!). For this sumptuous meal and the intimate beach table setting we were very pleasantly surprised when the bill came and it was the equivalent of around $45 US! Needless to say we went back several times and although we never had our table right on the sand again, the lovely beachfront loaction and the enchanting decor all around Jake's makes any meal there feel special!

“Lovely outdoor dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We enjoyed watching the sunset from our table. Menu was limited, but we had no trouble finding something to order. It's a bit pricey, but worth it. Be sure to try one (or two) of Dougie's pina coladas!

“Tranquil dinner on by the sea.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We really enjoyed the views and cocktails by the sea, before a delicious meal, with amazing puddings!
