Folks I’ve been wanted to check this restaurant out for sometime now but never had the opportunity until a week ago. The view is nice the ambiance is great and the food is large and tasteful delicious. However what struck us the most was the...service. Ms Sonia our perfect server was awesome and friendly. She kept us entertained the entire dinner she’s the best. We will definitely be going back to this spot on our next visitMore

Went with another couple whilst staying at the De carmon. We were recommended this by a member of staff. We were very disappointed with the food and most definitely received a tourist price on the food. Tried to challenge the staff regarding the price difference...and asked to leave. Overpriced and absolutely full to the brim and full of the smell of pot everywhere.More

We called in our order ahead of arrival having being warned of the slow service. Even then, we shudder to think of how long it might have taken to get our food if we had not called! We arrived at the appointed time and were...seated promptly. Our seafood soups arrived shortly after and was very good. It had pieces of crayfish and was rich and flavorful, maybe a tad too much pepper but still good. Appetizers cracked conch and spicy wings took a further 45 minutes to arrive. Both were good in terms of taste but the wings were not hot with heat. Disappointed though that there were no Heineken beer and the Red Stripe beer I received was only slightly chilled. Hmmm…food not hot and beer not cold… Another half hour after we finished the appetizers until the fried lobster was served. That was delicious, with a lovely garlic butter sauce. And thankfully that was hot and portion quite reasonable. But not so nice when only one person has main course and the other has not arrived. The fried fish was very elusive. Despite asking several waitresses and getting multiple promises, the fish was very late in coming. It arrived at the table some two hours after we were seated!! Tasty it was, well cooked and nicely seasoned, cooked to perfection. Ambiance is nice as situated on a beach, but several persons were smoking nearby and smoke was wafting to our table quite frequently. Music was somewhat too loud although a good selection was played. If you want a very leisurely meal, its recommended . But just don’t go if you have a timeline or if you are hungry!More

The prices on the menu are listed in both JMD and USD but when they bring you the bill to pay, the USD amount is significantly more than if you added up what it said on the menu in USD. This is because they convert...it at point of sale using a terrible exchange rate. To combat this pay your bill in JMD especially if using a card. The rate that you get from your Visa company will be the best rate.More

Our party of seven adults and two children waited at least one hour for our food. Our first server took our order, submitted it to the kitchen and left the restaurant as her shift was over. Due to poor communication of the serving staff, no...one followed up to ask about the status of our order or any other needs for our table. We had to ask for water and silverware instead of it being supplied to us initially as part of better service to customers. We made at least two complaints to the wait staff before our food was served. We had to get the manager involved to move our orders forward so that we could be served. I was so frustrated with the service and inattentive attitude with the staff that I did not enjoy my meal as I anticipated based, in part, on the reputation of this establishment.More

Where can I start! Well, I waited 2 hours for my food, so we can start there. My server showed up 2 times during this time. He leaves the kitchen hourly i think. Half the menu was not available. I ordered octopus and it honestly...didn’t taste like anything but chewing on plastic. My partner had a vegetarian sandwich which was supposed to have cheese according to the server but eventually it didn’t. We asked him why there is no cheese he said he didn’t know that. The funniest part is I had a corn as a side of with my food but i didn’t get it until I finished. Maybe they had to ship one from a near by farm. The prices are pretty much as expensive as in the US or little more. My bill was 70$ for octopus, veggie sandwich, corn side, and 3 drinks. Oh, they charged us for service as well 🥲.More

I brought my family here while on a visit and they loved it. It wasn’t my first time here and it’s honestly the best seafood restaurant I’ve been to in St. Ann. Not to mention that their customer service is great (Jamaicans are known for...a lot of phenomenal things but customer service isn’t one of them, and I am a Jamaican-American speaking that loves there for a portion of the year). I got there pretty late and our server’s energy was still on 100, and respectful as we were there passed the closing hours. We didn’t feel rushed. I was just happy my aunt loved it because sometimes the elders can get picky, understandably. My niece loved her little strawberry frozen drink. They also have random, cool events (stage shows, soccer games) that’s inclusive of locals which I think adds a very special touch to this restaurant, and keeps the traditional Jamaican culture alive in quite unique ways. The location is on the beach and the calming sounds from the ocean is meditative, and still overpowers the vibrational reggae music coming from their sound system. The vibe is on point. It was always a cool-looking restaurant but they recently remodeled it and it’s even cooler — plenty of photo ops! It’s a dope vibe overall.More

Atmosphere is great; however everything goes down hill from there. Service was simply bad, no communication, at one point the server who is taking care off us asked us if we did not got our soup as yet. When some one else brought it, it...was cold. Had curry conch which tasted like curry wash out and it had branches of time every other spoon. Two other people in my group of eight had it with same results. my wife had snapper and it was bland. season was lost. Gave them the benefit of the doubt and went back a second time, only for every thing to duplicate.More

A friend and I decided to eat here. Took her for her birthday lunch. Was crowded but there was a table for us. The waitress had no clue about anything on The menu. We had grilled fish, conch, sodas, beer. Was wonderful sitting by The...ocean and eating fish. Wonderful. We took a walk on The beach while we awaited our food. The restaurant and toilets are clean. Delicious food and prices. Thank you for your service. In The area? Or just a day trip? Highly recommended!!More

There are non seafood items like wings, jerked chicken, chicken pasta, vegetable and chicken wraps, steak. So there are a few items that don’t involve seafood
