If you are traveling between May 1 and June 30, the lobster season is closed and eateries cannot be offering that item.

When the season is open, Cosmo's right on the beach comes to mind. Also Alfred's, Bourbon Beach, Bar-B-Barn.

Welcome to the TA Jamaica forums. As HDM mentioned, when lobster is in season, Sun Beach on Sunday nights 7pm live reggae band and 2 for 1 lobster dinners $38 USD. Candle light tables with white tablecloths are set out on the beach with tiki torches close to the sea. Free pick up from your resort and free wifi.

Enjoy your time in Negril!

Look for the" fireman" walking up and down the beach- he's usually carrying a lobster with him. Last year when we were there it was $20 per lobster- you pick your own from a trap he has right off the shore and then he throws it on the grill right then with some garlic butter and toasted bread!! Can't wait to look him up again!

PLEASE, don't buy lobsters when they're out of season!! It's their mating season, plus the taste/texture of some during that time isn't top notch. There are always folks selling them illegally. It's a shame, since over-harvesting is starting to take a toll on the population.

That said - when in season, the places above are all good. Kuyaba is also excellent - serving it grilled as well as in sinful cream sauce over pasta. Generally entres will be in the $25-35 range. (Sun Beach sounds ike a bargain these days!)

Where is Sun Beach located? We always go to Cosmos, looking for other small on the beach places for drinks or dinner.

We ate at Sun Beach when we stayed at Firefly years ago and enjoyed it. If memory serves (always sketchy), they had a table set on the beach with one of their nightly specials )(w/ plastic wrap over the plate) to show what they were serving. They had excellent soup back then too.

I just returned from Gran Lido and you cannot buy lobster right now. In fact the crabs have just mated and all the little babies are running around. They are everywhere!
