We ate in Port Lucaya every night for 7 nights. This was the most expensive meal we ate and my least favorite. Tables were rocky, but the deck was nice and peaceful and they had wifi too.

Takes a while for service but the seafood platter for 2 was worth the wait. Ate outside so we could people watch which is always fun.

We wanted a jerk chicken experience and we had one. The dish was very delicious. The chicken was mildly spicy and well prepared.

Great food! We tried the seafood platter- good for 2 person. Pretty much every seafood you want, including lobster & conch fritters. The dinner comes with 2sides & 3 slices of johnny cake. Yum!
