Like the ambience but the price for local Jamaican dishes are too high. You can get the same food at any local place in town for a much cheaper price.

It isn't FANCY so don't do on a first date there. But if you wish to relax in a more Family atmosphere and enjoy real local selection. This should be your first top.... More

If you are looking for authentic Jamaican food, this is the right place. Oxtail, curry goat, both were delicious! I also had a vanilla malt. It had been a long time since my last malt and this did not disapoint.

Was pricey. Ran out of Jerk chicken. The rest of the menu was not authentic. Could get a better meal at Applebee's.

We had the jerk goat and some appetizers. Outstanding food and service. When the goat was too bony, I mentioned it to the server and he brought more!

The Pelican is one of the restaurants I have patronized since my very first visit to Jamaica. I enjoy the variety of food and the portions are quite plentiful There were more authentic Jamaican dishes in the past, and now there are more "American" meals appearing on the menu. I am hopeful that the restaurant isn't pressured into losing it's... More

I ordered delivery from the Pelican to the Polkerris B & B. My meal came quit quickly, the order laid out as if I had a waiter, it was done very nicely. The curried goat was well prepared, it came with mango chutney; peas and rice and veggies. The price of the entree was reasonable. I also ordered the Rum... More

Visited location on Father's Day. The food was good, especially the soup. The 'special' offered of surf and turf was well prepared. The prices however are on the 'high' side.
