We eat at Penny's every time we go to Negril. It is on our regular stop list. As always, the restaurant provided great eats, fine dining for a fair price. It is located across from the Lighthouse and always comes through. OWNER RUN ESTABLISHMENT

We have walked past this place at least twice a day during our last fifteen visits to Negril and have never stopped in to eat, mostly because it is a little dark looking inside the gate. The four of us decided to eat here since our first choice stunk of garbage. We are very happy that we gave it a try!
Penny greeted us very warmly and engaged us in some wonderful conversation; he has been in the area for such a long time. We ended up splitting some bottles of excellent wine at reasonable prices.
The dinners were quite good. I had homemade pasta with lobster, shrimp and octopus - it was mouthwatering, and the pasta really was homemade. My husband had lion fish - it was done just right. The other gentleman had the whole snapper which was also delicious. The other lady ordered a tenderloin, cooked medium rare, but it was medium well and a little on the small side. The prices are what I call "resort" prices, as opposed to the local restaurants. But, it was so much more than jerk chicken!!

Located right across the the street from the lighthouse. Penny's Lighthouse Inn is charming. We walked from our hotel in the dark and were quite sad and disappointed when we arrived to find the gate closed and locked ( this was late November before the tourist season really kicked off and they weren't open yet ). We got the attention of someone inside and they welcomed us in. They said sure they would serve us, but their full kitchen wasn't up and running. Penny and his wife were very warm and welcoming. The food from their temporary "outdoor kitchen" was delicious. Amazing Snapper in coconut sauce. The restaurant ( and hotel ) is set in a beautifully maintained garden. When we asked if they could call us a cab after supper, Penny drove us back to our hotel.

If I were rating the owners, it would be 5 star, they are a lovely, friendly couple. The atmosphere is a 4. Cozy, small outdoor dining in a garden setting. I had the lobster thermador and hubby had the curry lobster. Both were served inside the lobster shell, which makes a nice presentation, but I would have preferred it in a casserole dish, so you don't have to go searching for the food. The theradorr was supposed to be in a creamy sauce, but under the mound of baked cheese, there was only a few chunks of overcooked lobster. Hubby's was overcooked as well.
We found this place from an ad at our resort. The ad reads " Call in for reservation and free dinner shuttle." What you don't find out until you get the menu is that it will cost you $20 plus tip to get back to your hotel, as the free ride is one way. We should have been told this when we called to make our reservation. Our entrees were $28 and $32, plus drinks and 10% service charge added up to an overpriced evening out. Our resort was all inclusive but we like to try local cuisines. We should have stayed in. We did enjoy the complimentary glass of rum punch and the johnny cakes.

Hello Linda,
Thank you for the review. I just saw it because it was published under Lighthouse Inn.
First off, I am sorry that our restaurant did not meet your expectations. We have acknowledged our mistake in not having the actual Information at the hotel regarding the one-way shuttle Service, this has been changed. It was lovely having you and your hubby as our guest and my husband and I still remember exactly who you are. ONE LOVE
