“Authentic but Overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

I absolutely love Jamaican food and this place has a nice variety of authentic Jamaican. We had the people who took us from the cruise port and gift shops wait for us here while we stopped for a quick bite. You have to walk through the gift shop )its Jamaica mon) they are gonna try to get you to spend money everywhere u go! Up the stairs..we sat on the balcony...we shared a 1/2 chicken meal which was spicy and yummy! Got a red stripe beer and we asked for water and they brought everyone out bottled water which they charge for! So we only said we wanted a couple. Def over priced but good stuff. The gift shops here even give you "free" drinks and then try to make you buy everything. I still Love Jamaica though =)

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

We stumbled across this place while shopping in town. The bar staff was very friendly and eager to serve. The drinks were average priced, but good.

“Average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We got the chicken stips with jerk sauce and they were good! Overpriced if you are staying at all inclusive resort. The atmosphere of the place is what makes it worth going.

“Very basic but friendly staff and ok food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

We embarked on a shopping trip to the Taj Mahal (avoid). Our bus dropped us at 11am and wasnt due to pick up until 1pm. We had been in every shop and survived the piranhas trying to sell everything they had and were finished by 11.30. We went to Mama's for some lunch and cocktails, we waited a while to be served but the food came quickly and the Jerk Chicken was very tasty. Not bad to pass the time but wouldn't travel just for the food.

I love where the restaurant is located the view was amazing.The waitress was very friendly and I had a very enjoyable fish meal. There is no rush after I had my meal I sat for a while and had a few drinks. Its truly a lovely place.
