“Good food but let down by choice on menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

As the title says when we went food was great but there was only two choices on the menu fish or shrimps I went for the fish which was red snapper cook well and the spices on it were great that on its own made up for the lack of choice the drinks were cheep and so was the meal well worth a visit even if you don't get the full menu

“Brilliant food and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We had the coconut shrimp which was cooked in a curry type sauce and it was absolutely delicious, set with the location right on Sharkie's beach and this place has it all, there isn't a lot to choose from but it covers most things, fish, shrimp, chicken and steak. I thought it was a little bit pricey considering you are at a beach shack. £28 for two main meal's with two sides, two beers and a pepsi, is certainly more than I would have thought to be paying but was well worth a visit.

“Sharkies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A little authentic Jamaican food... simple, but good. Dinner for 2 for $18 USD We had jerk chicken (good) breadfruit (bland) and some red-stripe. Ate overlooking the bay, it was very relaxing.

“Food was OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Not too impressed, food was OK and a little overpriced. Did not care too much for the ambiance, it is mostly outside near the water, plenty of mosquitos and the area was not kept that well.

“Great Fresh Cooked Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

5 minutes walk from the RDCC.

Meal cooked fresh as ordered, waited about 30 mins for food, but this not a problem as food was fresh abd beautiful in flavour.

Will go again on our next visit to Jamaica
