We were the first ones there and seemed like it would be a good experience, but we were forgotten a couple times. In addition, our food came out unnecessarily cold, given that it was not packed and the food was "cooked to order". However it does have a good location with a great view and ambience. In addition, it's affordable,... More

We ate jerk chicken that was very good and were entertained by the owner and taught how to play Jamaican Dominoes which rules differ making it a much quicker game. We played several games and before you knew it our food was delivered to the table. There are also some very basic rooms up above but really cheap if you... More

We love the view and the sounds of the ocean at Frenchman's Reef. The food is basic fare at a reasonable price. When the owners are not on site, the service is not good. Lackadaisical wait staff is annoying. Yes, I know it's Jamaica and yes, I know the weather is hot; I live here, too. But that's no excuse... More

The owners and staff were friendly and accommodating. The credit card machine was down for the entire time of our visit (5 days), they allowed us to run a tab until we arranged a trip to the ATM (nearest one was 30 minutes in a cab). The adult milkshakes are great!

Food is wonderful. I've eaten here several times and it is always good. Sadly the beach in front of the restaurant is eroding away. Waves are fun, but be careful of the strong undertow.

It's right on the beach. The staff is very kind and accommodating. There is a shower around the side of the restaurant that we used after the beach which was a treat after a beach day. We also visited on a Friday eve after dinner and it was pretty mellow. Nice spot to chill out in the moonlight and have... More

I ate here many times on our trip. There is the best server in all of Jamaica that works there her name is Natoya. The service was great and the setup with the tables was nice. You could eat your food and watch th ocean or even the sunset from there. A nice touch is you can get cash back... More

We found Frenchman's Reef to be a reliable choice for any meal. The breakfast was very good on the days when Smurf's was too busy, with the bonus of sitting outside and watching the activity on the beach and bay. Dinners are large and reasonably priced with great, fresh, local seafood. Lots of locals and tourists come to hang out... More

Went here for dinner and a breakfast, everything was really good (fried chicken/rice for dinner, egg sandwich/festival/ackee and salt fish for breakfast). Really good prices and quick service on the beach :)

Good place to have a cocktail by the beach with friends and soak in the Jamaican vibes. All of our group enjoyed their food. I tried the curry goat, fried chicken, pizza and burgers. I think their burger is probably the best you can find in Treasure Beach. The service is slow compared to back home but if you remind... More
