I dont know about the other reviews re: this restaurant but It just made me wonder where the heck did they compare their jamaican meals from?? I hope it's not from the all inclusive hotels they were dwelling!
Anyway, the food is great here. Stew and the jerks were the best I've ever had in the whole of Jamaica even to this day. The staff was great so I have no complaints whatsoever. The slowness of the meal... well helloooooo!!!, you are in Jamaica!, what the heck do u expect? North American standard??. The cook their food for a loooong time to get to your belly. That's how the Jamaicans like their food. Goodluck!

This was by far the worst restaurant of our visit. The Snapper(?) was very bad and I can assure you it wasn't snapper. The $15 chicken was two very small, very greasy pieces of chicken (leg and thigh) with rice and peas, which is the only side you'd want to get. My brother got a beef stew dish. He could only eat a few bites. Servers were rude and came to the table only twice...to take the order and bring the order. Please do not waste your money or time. Oh and the drivers get free meals if they bring tourists in, so beware!

We always have at least one meal at Sweet Spot whenever we are in Negril. This time, we got carryout fried chicken and jerk chicken and both were excellent. Just check the board to see what is available (it's checked) Good quantity, Prices are reasonable. A popular local place as well. Don't miss this "sweet spot"!

We were brought here our first night in Negril, and several other locals and tourists recommended Sweet Spot during the week we were there. We ordered fried chicken and fries for takeout and the food was excellent.

Had one dinner here. Food wasn't that great. Staff was terrible. Rude and very slow. Slower than other restaurants in Negril (most places are slow). Worst aspect? They attempted to hike up the prices on our meals very dramatically. We attempted to make a complaint about this, but the staff wouldn't budge. We later found out that they charge people different prices for the same meal. Much better places to eat in Negril.
