“Best FOOD by far!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

You meet him at his house that has an outside patio and bar/cooking area(looks like any other Jamaican restaurant). You are more than likely to be his only customers, but don't be deceived! The views from his balcony are amazing and the breeze is wonderful! He cooks a delicious meal that fills your plate with crab goodness! You can also call ahead (the morning before IF you plan to go) and ask for a specific type of fish or lobster if you prefer. This was the best food we had in Jamaica! He makes everything fresh and really enjoys cooking. Bentely is very sweet and enjoys your company. Please, take the time to try his food, it was unique Jamaican flavors but not overpowering-absolutely delicious! My mouth is watering just writing this review!

“Extremely nice owner/cook/bartender/friend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

After sitting there for 5 minutes you will understand why I took a few minutes to write this. The place is a little rough but hey your in Jamaica. The food is delicious,made fresh,and made right. It's a little hard to find but worth finding. If you do plan on going bring Bentley some Old Bay,he has a hard time getting it and tell him his fishing friend told you to bring it. It was a great time and made our trip extra special. Thank you Bentley you are a great person and a great cook!

“The Top Spot in Negril”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

This was my 2nd trip to Negril and my 2nd trip to visit Bentley and eat his unbelievable food!! Everyone else's reviews are accurate in regards to his location, menu, and his cooking talent. Bring a healthy appetite and a fun attitude and you will be so glad you visited. I would NEVER go all the way to negril and NOT eat and visit with Bentley --- and you should not either!!

“A must do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

Bentley is a true character and one heck of a chef. As stated in precious reviews, make sure you call ahead in the a.m. if you want to do lunch. The portions are huge and everything is really good. His place is up approximately 300 yards on the right hand side of the road at the top of the hill.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

I have to say this is the best place for some really good seafood the blue crab cakes was awsome ! my husband dont eat crab but he ate all of bentleys crab cakes and the special sauce is just a topper , then he makes you these fresh papaya and mango drinks from the island no sugar all natural ,plan on returning again soon. Bentley's crab shack ur the best .
