What more can I say. The reviews are all true! Food was exquisite and good value. We sat upstairs which is outside with just the lagoon and stars for company.

Starters were black bean soup. A meal in itself very tasty and tiger prawns with scotch bonnet sauce. I was a bit scared of the sauce but it was delicious.

Then steak and surf and turf. Some of the best we've had. Meantime we'd been asked if we wanted the chocolate pudding so that was in the oven.

Overall great food and atmosphere will definitely visit again 170 us including wine for the 2 of us. this and pier 1 are our favourites.

The ferry that will take you across six feet of water from the dock to the restaurant is the calling card for this restaurant. The menu is rather limited with unexpected items (beef stroganoff?). Sit on the upper deck if possible, where you are open to the sky. The Houseboat Grill is somewhat out of the way, but worth a visit.

From the small water shuttle that takes you out to the Houseboat (about 8 feet) to the amazing desserts, you can not go wrong with the great restaurant. We visit here each year we vacation at Sunset Beach. The houseboat is 2 minutes from there and they will send a car for you. Do not miss this place if you visit Montego Bay!

The food and atmosphere was fantastic. It was raining and I did not reallly want to go out on a houseboat, but it was well worth it and look forward to visiting it again. However, the prices were alittle high, but food and service were worth it!
