“Amazing food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

The Kuyaba restaurant was so lovely that my friend and I went twice. The decor is lovely, and the food is delicious. I ordered a shrimp dish in a papaya boat that was amazing. I wish I had the recipe to make it myself, but the restaurant is nice, very romantic, and quite relaxing. The pace is a little slow, but the food is lovely.

“service at Kuyaba Negril”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The food was great. However the service was poor. The waitress took eternity to take order. Menu was misleading . I cannot remember the name of the entree ordered by my cousin's wife. But I remember clearly that it did not state that it contained milk and neither did the waitress alerted her. She paid for a meal she could not eat.

“Delicious Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I ate breakfast at Kuyaba and it was not only very delicious but very plentiful. I had callaloo, ackee & saltfish, fresh fruit, fried dumpling and freshly squeezed orange juice. I was in food heaven as I sat on the deck and watched the people and lovely ocean.

I went there on a whem because I didn't know where to go to eat after being in Jamaica for the first time and alone. I walked from my hotel accross the road over and was so happy I did. It was on the border of breakfast and lunch and they were still willing to prepare the JA breakfast for me.

The view was so beautiful, the staff very friendly and patient and the breakfast was just amazingly delicious. Not only do I plan on returning to eat other dishes but I will stay at the hotel. I viewed the rooms as I was waiting on breakfast and very very modern and comfy looking.

I shall see you soon Kuyaba!
