“Great jerk!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

After a nice little walk down the road from our hotel we grabbed a bite at 3 Dives. We had attempted a meal earlier during the week of our stay, but their hours of operation pretty much ran on Jamaica time. All was good though once we went at a more "regular" time. Jerk was excellent...atmosphere was nice. A little bit of dinner entertainment was going on closer to the cliffs with a man swallowing fire. All around good evening. Give it a shot!!

“Variety of Jamaican foods w/view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Really great food and the view is amazing. This spot has music on Tuesdays too.
I had jerk chicken, extra spicy, and it was delish. I could not even finish 1/4, so I took it home for lunch the next day.

Tonight, I had curry conch and veggies,(calalloo & okra) plus slices of roast-fried breadfruit. YUM!
The service rocks, and while you're taking pictures, or just taking in the view, they will come get you when your "cooked to order" food, is done. Easy going staff, and just relaxing vibes.
I love eating outdoors, and 3-Dives also has outdoor, covered seating, in case there is a summer down pour. (June) I LOVE the sound of that hard rain.
I have to say, that their prices are very reasonable. 3 DIVES curry conch, is less than half the price of X-tabi. Theirs, is $1800/JA (or $18.00US) to 3 Dives $700/JA (or $7.00)

The fact this spot was on "Survivor", had nothing to do with me eating here.
Its just a stones throw from my "little cottage in Negril", (Tyrone Taylor, RIP)
and they posess. the correct "barrel" to cook

These wonderful "side-of-the -road" restaurants, are where the prices are fair, and the food is "cooked to order", so always FRESH, and never worry about GMO while in Jamaica. People will learn patience, and the food is much better, than eating something sitting under a heater for 3 hours. The quality and taste are well worth any wait time.....the sea view will distract you from that waiting time.

Great spot for all kinds of people...family, friends, honeymoon, mom-vacations (girl holidays), teenagers, baby-boomers, back packers, and solo travelers.
Remember, TUESDAYS is music night.
Pack and go~

“Jerk Chicken!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

The very first thing I asked when I arrived in Negril was where is the best jerk chicken?
Everyone said 3 dives which happened to be right up the road from my resort.
Amazing jerk chicken and plantains. I was in heaven and I highly recommend stopping by this place.
They have curried chicken and goat and vegetarian options as well.

“Worth the Wait”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

OK, 3 Dives is a complex situation. First, I have to say that the food is delicious. The Jerk chicken, the grilled shrimp and the fried plantain are not to be missed. The service may be a little slow, but grab a Red Stripe and chill out. You're on vacation.

Call before you go to confirm that they're open. It can be spotty sometimes.
