“"Denzel" is the BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

Bamboo Blu is the coolest local Restaurant/Bar on the beach in Ocho Rios. Live entertainment, bonfires at night, rum drinks served in authentic Bamboo cups and delicious dishes and seafood. Choose your own fresh lobster. Definitely ask to meet the manager Denzel. He is the most kind and fun person you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. I miss him already!!

“Best kept secret!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

Our overall experience at Bambou Blu was just wonderful. Denzel the manager was incredibly personable and Olivia our server was the BEST! She was more than accommodating and it mattered to her that we were pleased. The food was perfect. The only bad thing I could say is that we were sad we didn't find out about it until our last night on vacation. Love to Bambou Blu all the way from Indianapolis!!

“Romantic dinner under the stars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

Think gourmet Jamaican food, the traditional dishes with a twist, on a wooden deck right on the beach. Spotlights gently lighting up the sea. A bonfire burning. Live music with staff joining in the singing. A wonderful experience of life in Jamaica.
