When you go to Roots, it is an experience. It's right in the middle of 7 mile beach. Be prepared to wait for your dinner. It will be fantastic and made fresh to order. In the meantime, their Red Stripe is cold, the music is great, and the company friendly. Last year, Bunny Wailer was there chillin on his porch while we hung out at Roots. It was awesome! The sunsets are amazing, and their Wednesday nights are off the hook. I couldn't give it a 5 star only because it's not really fancy, the food just tastes like it is. In our opinion, they have the BEST lobster thermidor in Negril and we have tried them all.

We went to Roots Cafe for our last night on the island and to celebrate my cousins birthday May 27th.

The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. The chef a made a cake for my cousin which was low in sugar due to her diabetes and it was very good. Our dinner was very tasty and no one had any complaints. The meal and drinks were very reasonable.

They also had a reggae and soca show which was very good. The dj was also on point.

We could not have asked for a better last night/birthday celebration and I just want to thank them for everything they did!

People are very friendly at this fine establishment. Very good lobster and jerk chicken plate with rice and beans. My wife ate the main lobster tail plate with mashed potatoes, butter sauce, and salad. Sweet breeze flowing in from the ocean adds an extra touch.

We went to Roots Cafe when we were strolling down the beach at night when there was a small reggae show going on. The drinks were reasonable One waiter blew our mind by asking us if we needed drinks then taking off running when he got our order. He literally ran back with our two Red Stripes on a tray and flipped the tray to crack open our beers. "Still the fastest," he said. I wouldn't come here for food during the day but its more worth while at night with concerts and talented waiters.
