Description: OUR STORY BEGINS with the opening of Rick's Cafe by its founder, Richard Hershman, in April 1974. At the time, Negril was a sleepy fishing village with little development. It lacked many modern amenities such as electricity, telephone and hot running water. Our beautiful little cliffside location was originally owned by a local doctor, the son of the first Governor General of independent Jamaica. RICK’S CAFE was the first public bar and restaurant of its type on the West End Cliffs, offering an alternative to Negril's majestic seven mile beach. From the beginning, Rick's Cafe boasted an unrivaled view of the sunset from its naturally formed cliffs. Over the years, visitors and locals alike have designated Rick's Cafe as Negril's premier gathering spot and our sunsets have become a Jamaican tradition.

...I didn't and had lobster. Mealy. That said, the manager and all service staff were wonderful, seating us away from band noise so we could converse, and suggesting a great fish dish for the friend who treated us to the meal.

Not very many people on terrace, but still took a while to get a seat. Prices high, so opted for something modest - modest is the word, honestly USD12 for a couple of patties, you are kidding right? Took an age to get the food which was actually pretty poor quality. Everything was dirty (table, cutlery, plates, glasses) and the staff attitude was poor. For a big boasty place like Rick's Café I expected a lot more.

I gave what money I had left over to the pro cliff divers - good lads and had a nice chat with them. Hats off to the general public throwing themselves off the cliff.
