Excellent food, beautiful view, lovely people and great service. Denzel is a superstar! A bit pricey but definitely worth it - best restaurant in Ocho Rios.

The most amazing restaurant on the beach! The customer service and the food are amazing! Denzel is a dream! He went as far as to surprise my husband and I with our names set in fire in the sand in a huge heart for our...honeymoon 🥰 We will never forget DENZEL at Bamboo Blu! We couldn’t thank him enough!More

The food, view, and amenities here were amazing but the service that Denzel provided was what made the experience very special for us on our honeymoon trip! He was very kind, attentive, and surprised us with our names in fire after our meal! I would...definitely recommend this restaurant for a special occasional or just for good eats.More

Often times I’ve celebrated with hot dogs, potato chips, and a birthday cake. This time I celebrated in another country with family and new found friends. I truly enjoyed the gifts of Mr. Denzil Thompson and Miss. Kissimmee. The food was spectacular and I look...forward to dining here again.More

Honestly today I chose to spend my day in the country as a resident of Kingston for my birthday and made the right decision. During covid , I just wanted to get away and decided to head to Bamboo Blu despite the weather. Well, the...sun came out , it rained for a little , a rainbow appeared and Denzel who is an employee made my day! He went over and above to make myself and family feel so welcomed and loved. A cake, a surprise , a birthday cocktail just the works! Thumbs up to this place ...it never disappoints!More

Birthday experience was so amazing. I felt so special and well attended to by both my pleasant server Cassemie, and the outstanding manager, Mr. T. They both went above and beyond the call of duty. My friends and i had an exceptional experience. We will...be returning. THANKS AGAIN!! ***P.s- Got my name on Fire in the sand. Loved it.More

Great location. Service was good. Fries were good. Drinks were good. They were out of coffee, and dessert options were very limited.

We took lobster with my wife. I don t remember the price. But I know it was not expensive. We choose a lobster, the big one that we share with my wife.
