Description: Mongoose Jamaica is more than a Restaurant, it's an experience.This Restaurant is "something different," We did something 'different' with the name as well, when we choose the "Mongoose" which has a rich history in Jamaica. Breakfast ranges from typical Jamaican fare of ackee and salt fish to pancakes and French toast. For dinner, there's chicken southern fried, curried, grilled lobster, grilled or curried, pork or steak. If you prefer, grab a sandwich, a pizza, some Jamaican jerk, or something from the grill, or maybe a cocktail from the bar. Black forest cakes and cheesecakes are our specialty desserts.

“boring...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

They have a very boring menu, of pizza, hamburgers, and Jerk Chicken all very over priced. We were so disappointed we got up and left.

“New restaurant - very friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We went mid-week and it was very quiet but the staff were really nice and so friendly. Food was great. Would be good to see some of the tourists from the "all inclusive" hotels get out occasionally and support the local restaurants.

“great restaurant in Ocho Rios Jamaica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

We happened upon this restaurant and were very happy we did. My fish and chips were the best! Service was excellent. Place is clean and the new owners are keen to do everything right. Our table was under cover but open to the breezes coming off the sea across the street.

Nice setting. Clean. Good food. Not cheap but reasonable.

We liked it so much that when we were driving back through Ocho Rios we stopped again. We were greeted like family by the chef.

Private fenced parking lot behind building.
