This restaurant closed down when Nelson Mandela Square renovated. It is no longer around. When it was there, it served decent seafood at expensive prices from a very good location.

Montego Bay is definately one of the best places in Sandton to find great Sushi. It is fresh and delicious. They also have a killer prawn/seafood curry that I can definately recomment. Great atmosphere right on the Nelson Mandela Square. The service is also great.

Had dinner here with a friend. We had fish, shellfish and chicken dishes which were all of good quality although nothing really special. The service was fine and the patio atmosphere is genial.

This place had rubbish service. I might as well have served myself. Also, the food was crap. Took over an hour to come out, tasted like cardboard, and when it arrived it was cold. All this at astronomical prices.
