“Still one of our favourites - but maybe slipping a little?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Jack El Negro's is somewhere I have reviewed more than once before - but given that we had dinner there 3 times during our most recent 2 week stay in Puerto Mogan - it seemed right to reflect on our latest visits.

Good pizzas and still amongst the best steaks in town - it's still somewhere we are sure to head off to for a meal when in Puerto Mogan. However I'd say that it has slipped just a little bit - maybe a victim of its own success?

It's a very rustic dining experience - which we like - but the charm of it is the character when blended with good service which I'd say is not quite as good as it was.

The glass of Ron Miel, that many restaurants in these parts give guests at the end of their meal used to be a regular part of things at Jack El Negro's - but in 3 visits was only a courtesy performed on one of those three occasions this year - which was when we spent least.

This restaurant does not have a credit card facility - so take cash with you if you try it out.

“Really Atmospheric”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Great for an evening out of the sunshine. This place has now windows at all but don;t let that put you off. The pizza was excellent. The tuna steak also very good. Excellent value (particularly on the pizzas etc) and friendly service.

“I always come back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Fantastic food in a great place! Super service! I often eat the pizza bolognese who is not on the menu, but still tastes like heaven!
