“Laid-back Beach Lunches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

We love this place for a laid-back lunch on 7 mile beach. We always get the jerk chicken so that's all I have ever had but it is reliably good jerk, reasonably priced and lots of good sides like calaloo and breadfruit. We usually get a few drinks from them and lay out front of their restaurant and find this to be a good central beach spot.

“tasty Jamaican food right on the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Rainbow Arch, between White Sands and Charela, is a very casual, friendly little spot on the beach serving very good Jamaican dishes (mostly chicken and fish). Everything is cooked to order, which means you may wait a while for your food (as opposed to jerk stands, which always have meat already grilling, making service quicker…. most of the time). The thing to do - if you can - is to stop by earlier, place your order, and tell them exactly at what time you will arrive. Prices are pretty typical of casual restaurants in the area - generally between $J800 and $1200. Rainbow Arch has a tiny little bar right at the beachfront entrance, so if you choose to not place your order ahead of time, you can always get a drink, sit and listen to music (with the ladies frequently singing along as they cook) while your food is prepared.
