In case it takes me awhile to do individual review of my faves - wanted to make a quick post in this forum.
We stayed at white sands and it was perfect. I did manage to do the review on WS :)
Hungry Lion on the cliffs. Excellent food, excellent service, excellent view, excellent ambiance, and excellent art. (got 3 small "paintings" there for $90 total. Someone named Richard Arthurs- love them!) We went there for a bday dinner and we couldn't have asked for more.
Ivan's at Catcha - Ditto all of the above, minus the art, add cute little kitty that loved sharing my lobster :). And their bar is AMAZING!! hope to post pictures soon. We went back the next night just for drinks. Thinking of splitting next trip up between beach (white sands), and cliffs (Ivan's.)
Rockhouse - was excellent, but Ivan's and Hungry Lion still tied for 1st! Fabulous view.
Niah's patties - MUST MUST MUST MUST do. Only open for lunch (i think?), put in your order 30 min. before you want to eat. he is next door to white sands in the Wavz arts and crafts center, all the way to the back on the left. he was so hard to find that we didn't find him till our last day. if we had found him on day 1 like we wanted to, we would have eaten lunch there every day. $3.00 (i think? maybe less) for a giant patty. And it was friekin delicious. I want to go back to Negril asap just for one of his patties. No lie.
on our snorkel trip, we ate lunch at a beautiful place called Half Moon Beach. They had lunch ready for us - buffet style. some of the best jerk i've ever had. And pasta salad - and I don't even like pasta salad!
If you get a driver, Half Moon Beach is about 20 min from White Sands, towards MoBay. Worth the trip. Stunning beach (think exotic deserted island beautiful), and delicious food.
We had such a fabulous food experience - I am carefully planning my meal adventures for the next trip - picking a place to stay is 2nd behind the food! ;)
We used Ian for our taxi rides, he was great. He even came back to check on my friend and I one night at the restaurant (Ivan's) he dropped us off at - because we were out later than usual! So we made him have a Red Stripe or 3 with us :)
