So Valerie's is a quaint little resturant bar that sits right on the main road between Montego Bay and Negril. It doesn't look like much when passing by but looks can be deceiving. Dress code is whatever you are wearing. It is run by the owner Ms Vaeriel who will from time to time cook. Basic local quisine, (chicken, pork,... More

My Aunt owns this restaurant and it is very nice. You get that homecooked meal vibe as soon as you walk in. Everyone there treats you like family, and it is situated nicely in front of the ocean. The food is truly authentic to the area and fantastic. Just watch out for the falling breadfruit when you park. XD. I... More

We ate here every day as part of a group of 20 on a mission trip. Most days we had breakfast and lunch or dinner here but there were a couple of days where we only visited for one meal. The staff were fantastically friendly and welcoming. The food was plentiful and tasted great. They even catered for the vegetarians... More

I paid Juta $25 to get me to my hotel in Negril from MoBay Int'l airport...I rode along with 20 others in a big blue bus and driver made a stop for people to stretch and grab a drink...red stripes $4 rum punch $4 high way robbery!! Lesson learned: don't trust Juta drivers cause everything is NOT alright!

Of course, this establishment is a huge favorite with the locals; however, this place is too great to remain a secret. I love restaurants that are really cooking -- not taking any shortcuts and seasoning the dishes just right. Everything was fresh - starting with your choice of juices (recommended 1st choice: carrot, 2nd choice: sorrel), veggies, and seafood. There... More
