“Quaint place”
Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Would rate it 4.5 but because I had the freshest shrimp in Negril I'm leaning towards the five. The grilled shrimp was perfectly seasoned and cooked the right amount of time to maintain the juiciness.

My bf's oxtail was delicious but he felt the rive was undercooked. Also the creme brûlée had a custard (think soft flan) consistency and taste.

Lastly, the place was very much empty and the glaring lights made it appear even more deserted. It felt like the staff was getting ready to wrap it up for the night. A more subdued lightening might make it more inviting and romantic.

“Save room for dessert!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Enjoyed a wonderful meal here over Christmas. Dinner for 2 including appetizer, drink each and amazing rum cheesecake and homade ice cream for $80 US. Expensive for Jamaica maybe, but fantastic meal and service - would have cost me more at home in Alberta for sure!

“Wonderful staff and most memorable moment”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

First, let me say that this restaurant was the highlight of our stay in Jamaica . I planned my engagement proposal here a month in advance and the staff here (and owner) deserve an outstanding for assisting with my execution. I can't say too much more about than what others have said but my fiancée thought it was dreamy and paradise. Food and wine were a+++++ we had lobster tails which were unbelievable we sat next to cliff and watched the sunset .... Best experience of my life ! . Best restaurant ever and I'd like to give special thank you to anIcia she captured everything on camera!!. Thank you thank you
