The seafood was okay.. They had two types of fish foods, lobster, lobster salad, octupus, green salad. You were only allowed to go up twice, and there were servers putting the food on your plate. (They looked like they were trying to put as little as possible)... Everyone was really nice though.

The food is excellent. The look and feel needs work but the presentation and food quality is superb.

First of all there is a lingering smell of raw sewage but besides that the ambience is lovely. My team and I spend a lot of time watching the fishes streaming by. As for service that was by far the worst I have ever encountered. The wait time for the meals was unbelievably long and the constant apologies from the... More

They really have a very nice terrace by the sea. There are not usually that many people, so I think it's rather romantic to sit there in the evening. The food is good and it's not that expencive. Sometimes they have a buffet and then they have many traditional jamaican food (also lobster). They also have a free wifi at... More

We brought a bunch of family here for lunch December 2012 and it turned out to be really disappointing. Had visited before and it was mediocre, but we liked the fact it was situated right on the ocean bed. Poor service, long wait times, non availability of several items on the menu made it an irritating experience especially as we... More

This is an update to my original review. Rarely have I had the need to do this. We loved this place -- so peaceful, great food, had a taxi ride from the Port, reasonable service, and introduced many friends to enjoy the Drunken Squid. Now, since our last visit we were embarassed and disappointed, phoning and left standing on the... More

We ended up here after an evening sunset tour we had planned was canceled due to weather. The staff at our hotel recommended this place as it was a quick cab ride from where we were staying in Rose Hall. We were up for an authentic Jamaican experience, but we're surprised by some of the other patrons who visited the... More
