Description: Mongoose Jamaica is more than a Restaurant, it's an experience.This Restaurant is "something different," We did something 'different' with the name as well, when we choose the "Mongoose" which has a rich history in Jamaica. Breakfast ranges from typical Jamaican fare of ackee and salt fish to pancakes and French toast. For dinner, there's chicken southern fried, curried, grilled lobster, grilled or curried, pork or steak. If you prefer, grab a sandwich, a pizza, some Jamaican jerk, or something from the grill, or maybe a cocktail from the bar. Black forest cakes and cheesecakes are our specialty desserts.

The Service was average a little more attention could have been paid to the tables.I literally had to go to the bar to try settle my bill.The menu was limited and could use some breakfast options since there was a group of us seeking good break fast in the area which seems to be lacking.

I highly suggest market survey in the next face of remodeling of menu and offering for this restaurant.

Not bad, but we visited this resteraunt as part of a trip so we were told to bring limited money.

The resteraunt was far more expensive than we expected so we literally couldn't afford drinks, but to be fair that's not the resteraunts fault.

Jerk Pork was good, have had better but I've also had worse.

Overall it's worth the 3 stars I've given it.

The food was excellent. We had curry chicken and shrimp cocktails. The band was amazing. The drinks were great also.

Had a group meal here on a saturday. Very quiet early evening but picked up gradually. When band started, around 2200, atmosphere was good. Food was average to good, nothing special.

This restaurant was recommended by a member of staff out our hotel in Ocho Rios.
We arrived mid evening and the place was quiet; only one other group of diners.
The restaurant was pleasant enough - clean and tidy.
Our waitress was very friendly but service was a little slow.
My curried chicken was not what I had expected; it was off the bone and chopped into very small pieces. It was tasty enough but not what I'd call authentic Jamaican cuisine.
The manager was sat with the other group of diners and politely intervened when 2 children started to hassle us for money.
He invited us to come back on Saturday when they'd be a live band.
Unfortunately, we were unable to take him up on his offer as we were leaving Ocho Rios before Saturday.
Food prices were a little steep for what was served but all in all, it was ok.
