Excellent service from Gary soothed my displeasure after having to leave the waterfront establishment rhat same evening. Great food also! I would never recommend the waterfront location to anyone....horrible customer service...the Port royal location still the best!!

You have to go to this place when you are not very hungry. The wait is too long but if you have the patience and if you are with a fun group that will keep your mind occupied, then, it will be worth the wait.

This is a must go venue if you are in Jamaica and near Port Royal. They serve a variety of seafood dishes which are a gastronomical delight. Meals are done to order so be prepared to wait a bit especially when there is a crowd.

Call ahead. They will take orders. Also Gloria's on the beach side tends to be quicker and more space. Certainly all the off times like after regular lunch hour or early dinner rime is good.
