“A Great Experience”
Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

This small boat has been converted into a restaurant. Initial impression when parking on the road verg where not great however upon walking down the short rough path to the waters edge through the twinkling lights we were welcomed by a very friendly staff member who guided us onto a small raft which was then pulled across (only a few metres) to the delightful quaint boat. It has a small bar and several dining tables. Food was very good albeit a little pricy however it was worth it for the overall experience. Views across the harbour at night were fabulous. I would definitely recommend this place in Montego Bay and suggest you make a reservation beforehand to avoid disappointment.

“Overpriced, nothing special”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

Make sure you have a reservation even if the place is empty otherwise they will keep you waiting and waiting. The food is very average, not worth the money

“No local food....just typical American stuff”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

No local food, serving traditional American fare. Don't come here if you want local food. What they DO serve, however, is delicious.

“Dinner with a difference!”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

This charming little boat restaurant is on the lagoons completely on water! It's small and very intimate....the food was yummy- what more can I say everything was done just right. I completely enjoyed the experience, the staff was fabulous and the service was top notch. Not inexpensive but worth every dollar!
