Everything at Ivan's is truly amazing. The drinks, the food and the service are top-notch. Start at the bar where Kevin or Bradley will mix up a Jamaican delight. Grab a table with the best views in Negril and enjoy delicious seafood, chicken or one of the amazing specials. The Jerk Chicken pasta should not be missed. The restaurant offers a free ride one way, I had a great experience with the driver Wayne who picked us up and took us back to our hotel. Catcha Falling Star is magic as is Ivan's Bar and Restaurant. Enjoy.

Came here with a party of four to celebrate our anniversary night with dinner and drinks. Food, Service, and Drink were all excellent... but the sunset was really something to see. We liked Ivan's so much that we decided to make a visit there an annual tradition.

This is the second time we have had dinner at Ivan's in the last 2 years and the dinner was great, and if it was not for the driver that they had pick us up and was suggested that we use to go home it would have been a 5 star experience. The food, drinks and service was top notch and exactly what we expected. The ride to Ivan's was a little wild, but we used him for the return trip as well as it was suggested that we use the same driver. When we went to leave, we were loaded into a van and were greeted by a driver who was so stoned that you could have blindfolded him with dental floss and the Van reeked of Ganja! The ride home was frightening to say the least as he was topping 100 plus Km/hr and was weaving in and out of traffic worse than I have ever experienced. I kept the drivers Card just so this cold be mentioned, he drives under Wayne's World Taxi. My suggestion would be for them to cut the ties with this driver as he sets the bar to a new level of the worst driver I have ever experienced in Jamaica, because of the affiliation with him, and him being a representative of Catcha the mark I am giving is less than perfect. I will add that we were also there 3-4 different times for drinks and the service was top notch then as well. I will go back to Ivan's but would pay for a taxi as it would be safer. If you go and accept the free ride unsure Waynes World is picking you up or you may not make it to dinner!

Ivan's Bar, with a recently renovated seating area is a wonderfully comfortable environment. The restaurant is laid out on multi levels from under thatch to out by the cliffs and the sea. My wife and I come here to meet up with friends or for special occasions. We have never been disappointing with any of the meals we have had here over the years (and we have tried everything on the menu) Defiantly check it out. Right next door to Rick's, separated by Banana Shout. Same sunset as Rick's with out the Tourist hassle and an elegant hang.

We had two dinners at Ivans. Both were very good. Great views from any table. The only bad thig is the very slow service. Our first meal was one hour and ten minutes. The other over one and a half hours!! They leave you just sitting and waiting for everthing. It's too bad because everything else is great!
