The atmosphere was good, and the food excellent. Absolutely no complaints at all. Love the local stingray that swims past most evenings im told...Had a lovely soup of the day, a great steak and a glass of a good red wine.

We were really looking forward to getting off our resort for one night to enjoy a fine-dining experience. Sadly, Margeurite’s in Montego Bay failed to live up to our expectations. Where to begin… Margeurite’s is right next door to the Margaritaville (makes sense), which is...the Hip Strip’s resident party destination. At Margeurite’s we were seated at a table for two on the patio which surveyed the sun setting over the ocean. Sounds lovely, right? No more than twenty feet away from us were two HUGE catamarans that were moored at Margaritaville’s loading up with drunk revellers for a sunset booze cruise. The crowd was noisy, the boats were PUMPING out two conflicting dance tracks, and belching out powerful diesel fumes from their idling engines, and the captains were having a grand old time blowing their respective horns, presumably to alert any nearby patio couples of the amount of FUN they were having. We literally couldn’t even talk to each other, such was the racket. Now for the actual meal. My wife ordered a bottle of champagne, and the server who brought it to our table popped the cork with two much vigour, as it erupted and foamed a quarter of the bottle out onto the deck. No restitution was offered. We started with the crab cakes, of which there were only two of VERY modest size, and they honestly tasted like tuna fish under all that breading. Not very good at all. Next came the surf and turf for me, and lobster for her. Entrees were tasty enough but the steak was more of a medallion. 4 ounces, tops. We ordered dessert, tiramisu and cheesecake, which was interesting. Our waiter didn’t know what kind of fruit came on the cheesecake, and it turned out to be diced maraschino cherries. Which didn’t really do it for me. Our meal cost just over $400 Cdn. We recommend giving this place a hard miss, but if you really need to try it for yourself, aim for after 7:00pm, which is when those bloody boats finally cast off!More

We were at Marguerites for an early dinner to catch the sunset. The view was nice, staff and service really good. Ordered the shrimp risotto and it was amazing, highlight of the meal by far. Then that’s were things could have been exceptional but ended...up disappointing us. My wife ordered the surf and turf which has a delicious reduction but the meat was cooked well WELL done. Still she liked it but could have been great. I ordered the lamb (medium) but just like the meat it was cooked well done which is not what you want in lamb. So doing a recap, for a restaurant that’s not cheap at all and that is very recognized, this key mistakes in the food should not happen.More

Beautiful spot right on the Caribbean. Food and service was excellent, extensive wine list, and the chef stopped by our table to talk to us. We dine here on every trip to Montego Bay. Escape the buffets at the all-inclusives and make visit Marguerite’s -...they will send a car for you - it is well worth it!More

I had a very underwhelming experience at this restaurant. The food was good. However, the service and the staff were by far the rudest. This is a beautiful restaurant location seated on the Caribbean Sea. On arrival, my friends and I snapped a few pictures...of the beautiful sunset. While we were doing this, the staff members told us to sit down. When we finally received our food, we noticed that tables around us were finally being seated. The manager came out and acknowledged and swiftly checked on the tables around my friends and I. Not one time did he come by our table and check on us. This did not happened once, this happened several times in which we seen him go to each table around us stopping to speak and provide them with whatever their needs/request were. As he walked around our table, he turned his head away as to not make eye contact with us. I am not sure if that was a racial discrimination issue or stereotype issue, but I was highly disappointed of the service especially from a fine dining restaurant like this. One positive thing about this dining experience, was our waiter was seemingly nice not very quick or attentive but nice. I would not recommend this restaurant Especially if you are a POC.More

We went to one of the higher rated places for seafood and it didn't come close to the experience we had at Marguerites. The service was top notch - the view was amazing. We started with the lobster risotto and it was very good with...ample lobster. We both had the lobster dinner and it was perfect. I'm not sure why this place isn't rated higher, but we had the best dinner at Marguerites and the most romantic view.More

Gorgeous upscale restaurant with beautiful views of the ocean. That is where it ends. My husband and I had the table side Caesar salad which was mediocre at best. I never had balsamic vinegar in a Caesar salad before. Next was the grilled lobster tail...which was tough, dry and had no seasoning on it. My husband’s filet was terrible with it being undercooked and tough. I never tasted a piece of meat quite like it. Everyone commented on how great the service was, but ours was spotty at best. A different server brought our food than the one who took our order and when my husband realized he didn’t get the scallops that was supposed to be on his dish, no one was around to assist. After a disappointing 2 1/2 hour dinner, we asked for the check and told the waiter my husband was served the wrong meal. He discounted the check which was lovely, but we would have rather had a good meal.More

I recently revisited this restaurant with my bf for our third anniversary and we weren't disappointed as it related to the standards; it was the same as the last time we visited last year. The food is great ! (Thumbs up to the chef 👍)....Ambiance and customer service is top knotch. The reason why I'm removing a star from this review is related to ventilation. The day we visited wasn't a cool day and was very rainy so I was very hot and sweaty and the fans in the restaurant don't help that situation as it seems they just add to the aestethics. I'm not sure what's wrong with the air conditioning but If that problem was addressed it would have made it an even better experience for us and future customers. Otherwise, it was nice and we'd visit again.More
