This place was a pleasant surprise. We got to watch the sunset while eating delicious, homemade Jamaican food. I highly recommend the pumpkin soup (if they have it). I don't like pumpkin anything but I was blown away by this soup. Everything here is delicious, you can't go wrong!

We stayed at the Beach House Condos and loved having Ocean Breeze as our primary restaurant 24/7.
OB has the best view of the ocean on 7 Mile Beach. Every table has a great view.
OB offers good Jamaican service and hospitality. The staff is like family after the stay. Georgia, Clive and Miller (Time) made each meal special.
The breakfasts are very good and a full bar 24/7. All omelets are delicious and a good price. Try the home fries.
Lunches are excellent. They offer jerk chicken and pork. The jerk chicken is my favorite in Negril. There are plenty of choices for lunch and snack options. The French fries are amazing.
The dinner offering is more extensive.
The bar is fully stocked and they can make any drink. Georgia makes a special “Georgia on my Mind-blower” rum drink. It’s strong, so be careful.
They have cold beers in the refrigerator.
They add 12% gratuity to each bill. Some of this goes to the bartender/servers. Take care of these folks. They are special.
The WiFi is strongest in the bar area. Stronger than the rooms.
Enjoy this hidden gem on the beach.

We choose to book our vacation at the Beach House Condos in Negril partly also because the Ocean Breeze Restaurant on the same premises (under different management) had very good reviews on TA. We had planned to have cocktails and eat there and do some cooking in our condo from time to time.
After our very long intercontinental flight we arrived at the resort shortly after sunset and decided to get something light for dinner, as after a long flight and eating here and there we have not been very hungry. We got a not very appealing menu with prices increased manually US 2.00 for almost everything. After the good comments on other posts about their seafood, we choose fish fingers and then we waited and waited – the only table occupied this night. Unfortunately we declined the soup offered to us as we wanted to concentrate on seafood, which we regretted as soon as we got our fishfingers: five pieces each and a cup of sauce, more like baby-sized fingers and completely inedible, like biting into strong fishy smelling cardboard, and this for expensive US 10.00! Clearly this was a small rest of frozen fish long overdue and fried too hot. We paid and went without dinner. When the very nice and friendly server asked if everything had been ok, we said it had not and we asked, if there is a new management and she said, yes, recently. She then called her superior who offered us breakfast the next morning to make good for the bad food, which we gladly accepted. At least, this was a nice treat.
Breakfast was ok – you can’t go wrong with eggs and toast – and they offered us the whole meal, not just the main plate, which we found very generous.
We gave the restaurant a second chance and had a sandwich lunch, which was neither good nor bad, a lot of French fries, also for US 10.00, and it as well took a long time to be served, as almost everywhere in Jamaica. Another morning we wanted to get breakfast and they write that they open at 7 am. We arrived at 7.30 and sat waiting for the menu while the staff started cleaning the bar and then we waited to get our order taken and then we waited and waited until we got our breakfast after almost an hour. Best meal we had was a chicken jerk. After that, we decided to do our own cooking and forget about eating out. We occasionally went out to different restaurants in the area, but mainly eat at our condo and enjoyed it.
We found it sad that in a place on the water you don’t get fresh fish. We had learnt before travelling that lobster season is closed the time of our visit, but we at least would have expected to get fresh fish. Probably because of shoulder-season, they are not buying fresh fish – understandable with most times just one or two tables occupied. Well, we found fresh fish and we cooked it and enjoyed it.
This is a pity, as the restaurant is nice (much nicer than on older pictures here on TA, no plastic chairs etc. anymore) and the location right on the beach is excellent. Another positive remark: even when they found out we do not eat there anymore, the whole staff was always very friendly and nice to us, no bad feelings. Really typically Jamaica-friendly.

Very good food. Lightly breaded on fried seafood. Delicious pastas as well as a pleasant atmosphere. Friendly servers that are anxious to please.
