Loved having a meal here after a day at the beach. Oliver, the cook, is a chill dude. His food is awesome - including fresh juice. Very affordable experience, and great view of the bay in Porty. Would go back again and again.

This was the most powerful and awesome experience. Having a meal prepared from local veggies fresh from the gardens, having beautiful men who were full of the country's history and fresh juice and herbs while sitting on a natural beachfront is priceless

For 26 years Oliver has been serving very good Ital vegetarian food to residents and visitors in Port Antonio.

Once we came back after a hurricane season, and said to Oliver, "you're still here?!". He said. "yes, we are survival beach." Wonderful food, right by the water, might want to make sure you have mosquito repellent on. Callng ahead is helpful if you have a group.
