“Great view over the reef”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

We ate here twice and enjoyed it both times. You have to watch out carefully as you drive along the highway to find the turn into the service road. Our first visit was early on in our holiday and we watched the birds wading in the shallow water at low tide while eating a very tasty soup for lunch. The second time was our last Jamaican lunch before flying home; delicious fresh fish picked straight from the ice tray, and the rice and peas garnished with a vivid yellow Scotch Bonnet chilli. This time the entertainment was provided by a rather expert kite-surfer. Friendly and efficient service, and the opportunity to put a toe in the water. A fitting finale.

“Generally alright”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

As a restaurant, the food was pretty good. I found the jerk to be a bit spicy, but my husband thought it was great. I thought the beach seating area was nice. Overall, my ranking is based on the food, ambiance, service, and the beach area. If you have a rental car and can make the trip to Greenwood to visit this restaurant, I'd recommend it.

Cons - this place was recommended by our villa as a beach. Hmmm... not really. The beach access was about the size of my front yard. Maybe 50 yards long.
Price with dinner for 2 and 1 alcoholic beverage each - $68. They do accept credit cards.

“The Cool Spot”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

We tried the Cool Spot because we wanted to eat somewhere local but we were not impressed at all. The jerk chicken was better than we had the resort we stayed but the grilled shrimp was overcooked and mushy. The bammies were flavorless. The price wasn't bad, I guess - we paid about $35 US for our lunch (2 of us.) I guess I expected better fare, and by the way, there are two prices ( one for the locals and one for tourists) I definitely didn't like that!
