“Burger Specialists in Jamaica?”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We walked across the street to this small restaurant from Tensing Pen after a LONG day. We were excited to chow down on some authentic local Jamaican food, and our appetites were big. When we got sat down, instead of receiving menus, we were told that they do burgers only, and that it was late so beef burgers were the only kind left. Feeling a little disappointed, we couldn't decide if we wanted to stay or try Alice's or Shark's instead...

...We were very, very glad we stayed. Whenever I am asked about my most memorable meals at restaurants, my mind will surely travel back to this night. The Jerk Beef Burger dressed was one of my favorite burgers I have had in my lifetime. BIG, juicy, perfectly cooked to a medium, and damn tasty. The lightly toasted buttery buns and locally sourced fresh fixings were flavorful and crisp. The fries were pretty standard, but a great complement to the burger and good scoopers of what jerk sauce might have dribbled off the burger and onto my plate.

The limited alcoholic selection is very cheap for a touristy neighborhood. With Rick's and Ivan's within a stones throw, one would have thought this place would be costlier. I honestly wish we had just gone here for every meal. It turns out the server/cook/only person working at the time was Aubie himself, a very friendly Canadian ex-pat who likely has emigrated friends hanging out at the restaurant at any time...probably because they know where the best food in Negril is.

“One of the best burgers, hands down.”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

So who'd a thunk that you can get one of the best burgers in Negril. Its true. Ahhh Bee is Canadian and has brought the great tradition of homemade burgers to Negril. This is a great little place but remember its rustic like most places in Negril. The Stripes are cold and the conversation is good. This is also one of the stops on the Bus Crawl as well. Go, have a burger and a Stripe. You wont regret it.

“Someday I'll fly to Jamaica just for a cheeseburger...”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Ahhh Bees is a destination restaurant, where one can find the best burger in the Caribbean. Aubie, the friendly and hospitable owner and mastermind of the soon to be iconic Ahh Bee burger, is one of our favorite people. If you're visiting for the first time, he's a great person to know and can help you navigate the beautiful world on the West End of Negril. Lovely ladies Melody and Shanakay will keep you from thirst with a great rum punch, dark and stormy or a cold Red Stripe. Healthy options? Absolutely. Aubie makes a tasty homemade chicken or veggie burger, made fresh on a daily basis. And don't miss Throwback Thursdays with deejay Twenty Two Pac, spinning classics from the 70's to the 90's. It's a gold mine for people-watching, and its packed with locals who everyone should get to know.

“Great burgers”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

I visited this place on a rather slow night after a heavy rainstorm. The owner, Aubie welcomed us and apologized that he was out of chips/fries but he had cold Red Stripes and a hot grill. The burgers were delicious and filling- we didn't even need sides! My husband had a beef burger and I had chicken. The meat was cooked to perfection and the flavors were excellent. They are doing some construction right now so their outside area is open but the indoor space is undergoing some renovations to expand their seating & bar area and create a space for bands. The owner was friendly and chatted with us for awhile.

“Such an awesome owner”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We were staying across the street and arrived mid-afternoon so this was the only place we could find to grab a quick bite and we were so glad we did! The owner was so nice and invited back to a party they were having that night! We had both a chicken sandwich and hamburger (both made with fresh ingredients) that were delicious!
