On recommendation from a friend we tried this place and we're glad we did. It was the best meal we had during our short stay. It was a rainy night, we didn't have reservations (which are probably a good idea) but we were accommodated at the bar (which was just fine). Quirky place, excellent food, and loved the ferry ride to get there.

Amazing!!

We had grown a bit tired of the food at the resort and decided to try this place out. I suggest going for an early dinner as soon as they open (Only open for dinner) so you can enjoy the view before it gets dark!

With every dish and in every detail, this restaurant was exceptional. The food was prepared with unique recipes. The adventure is worth it. The staff is gracious without being overwhelming. The view is amazing from upstairs. If you have only one special dinner in Montego Bay, make it the Houseboat.

Great atmosphere and great food. It's definitely meant for tourist as their prices are similar to the states where you can't catch the fish locally. Expect to pay close to $200 for two people. It's still worth it and we left very full and satisfied!

Loosen the budget a bit and enjoy first class seafood dining. We ate here twice and enjoyed uniquely prepared shrimp and vegetable dishes. Ask for a table upstairs to dine under the stars. One regret is that they are not open for lunch, and its too dark to enjoy the harbour view. One quirk was that we could taste no rum in the rum punch, and complaining about it did not help.
