“Delicious Jamaican Food”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Loved the variety of dishes on offer, each day they add something different. The food is mostly Jamaican dishes and all very well done and is inexpensive (on average US$15 for a main course). The portion sizes are very big. The location of the restaurant is by the pool and is spread over a wide area.

“The Best Restaurant”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Service is so friendly. Each meal is prepared from fresh ingredients purchased fresh that day. The fish is caught and brought to the hotel by local fishermen. The fruit and vegetables are all fresh, too. They have great cooks. You will be very, very happy with anything you order. The desserts are only so-so. I don't think that dessert is a big deal in Jamaica.

“Good food - but expensive for what it was”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Good fresh food, seemed expensive compared to similar fare elsewhere. The location is exquisite. Menu varies day to day so you can go every evening and try something new.

“Best restaurant in our tour of Jamaica!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We travelled all around Jamaica in January and this was by far the best restaurant that we ate at. Our first time at Jake's we had no reservations and the place was packed. We took a seat at the roadside dining area (not the more desirable beachside dining area). After just a few minutes the manager (I assume) asked us if we would like to sit on the beach to eat--they had a table set for us at the water's edge with candles all around--sooooo romantic. We had a couple of drinks, I had a very tasty pumkin pasta and my husband had the lobster (which he said was just as good as at Little Ochi!). For this sumptuous meal and the intimate beach table setting we were very pleasantly surprised when the bill came and it was the equivalent of around $45 US! Needless to say we went back several times and although we never had our table right on the sand again, the lovely beachfront loaction and the enchanting decor all around Jake's makes any meal there feel special!

“Lovely outdoor dining”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We enjoyed watching the sunset from our table. Menu was limited, but we had no trouble finding something to order. It's a bit pricey, but worth it. Be sure to try one (or two) of Dougie's pina coladas!
