We found it to be very over priced for what you got. The lighting was also ridiculously dim,you could barely read the menu and couldn't really see what you were eating which was a shame because it looked very well presented when we shone our...phones on the food.Waiter was attentive,would we visit again unfortunately not!More

We visited here while in Jamaica, service was extraordinary, food was awesome, only four stars because of price. Recommend if it’s in your budget.

The food was lovely at this restaurant but the lighting was far too dim. I appreciate they want to create an ambience with the lighting in the sea but we thought this was ridiculous. We had to shine our phone torches on the menu to...read it and you couldn’t see the food you were eating very well without shining a torch. You did acclimatise to the lighting over the evening but the minute you put a light on you were back to square one. Shame because it would have been lovely to have taken photos of the food but this was impossible. I had prawns (shrimps) in linguine. Very nice but again because of the lighting I found I’d eaten all the shrimps so was left with just pasta which as a result I didn’t finish. The food was expensive. It would have been worth it if you could see it but I wouldn’t return there unless I knew the lighting had changed.More

The Experience Let me tell you, Omroy and the staff at Marguerites (with the exception of the bus driver) are hands down 10/10!!! They made my dad’s surprise 60th birthday celebration the best, and most amazing experience. From the time of arrival to the time...that we left (like i said before, with the exception of the bus driver who will pick you up for transportation). Omroy, from the beginning of planning with him, was extremely communicative, accommodating, polite and went above and beyond. I literally told him my dad loved Asake, and i would love it if could be praying when he walked in. They typically don’t do this as we didn’t buyout the entire restaurant but we had 19 people (it was initially meant to be 24; but last minute issues happened with some of our guests). But to my surprise; when we walked in to surprise my dad with his friends and family, Asake was playing. Oh Omroy, you and your waitstaff need a raise because I was just so overjoyed and everyone enjoyed themselves. I let Omroy know that this was a surprise for my dad and they accommodated picking up our surprise guests first so that when my dad walked in they were all there waiting for him. The Food I got the crab cake appetizer and the run down snapper; both were really good; the only caveat is that I’m from Maryland, the home of crab, so we prefer our crab cakes to be lump crab, these ones are more like shredded crab meat. Baby, if you know you like Caesar salad, this is the best place to go to get one Worldwide. My cousin loves Caesar salad so we literally eat it in every country we go to, hands down, this is the best!!! It’s literally an experience as they make everything from scratch right in front of you; including the dressing The Driver He was polite until we dropped him off; my husband went to give him a tip (we stayed 10min away from the restaurant) and was counting out money (we got our money changed to $1s for tipping as this is the culture in Jamaica) and I guess he saw $1 bills and “assumed” he saw my husband count $2 and his response was very nasty “oh that’s only $2 you can keep that” and stormed off. Mind you, on a $2K bill we tipped $500. Even if it was $2, which it wasn’t, the response was crazy, tipping is a courtesy NOT a requirement; it’s like a homeless man saying i want KFC instead of Taco Bell when you try to help and give him food - BE MORE GRATEFUL AND HUMBLE!! This economy is rough on everyone and whatever extra people can give you should just be grateful. Outside of that, 10/10 experience.More

They messed up my reservation time which was booked specifically so we could enjoy sunset. I emailed 3 days in advanced and tried to call many times but didn’t get a response. It was later explained that they didn’t open until 6 so I was...never going to be picked up and get there by 6. If this had been explained prior, I would have made my own way there or looked elsewhere. Was very happy as I expected better. The food was okay but very pricey.More

Everything about this restaurant was amazing!! The views, the staff, the food, the ambience, all top tier!! The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that there could have better lighting for outdoor dining. Not a huge deal, but when the sun sets...its very hard to see the menu and your food. It's a bit pricey, but worth every penny!! Highly recommend if you're looking to celebrate a birthday or have a date night off of the resort!More

My wife had made the reservation for my birthday and let them know it was for that occasion. The hostess was pleasant when we went in, and they were willing to keep our bags as we had gotten ready after leaving the beach. She walked...us to our seats, where the view was amazing and the atmosphere definitely has that "WOW" factor. The waiter was pleasant, and was willing to have the bartender make a specially requested drink at my request. Things started heading downhill once we got to our entrees, where we had the filet mignon and lobster combination. The steaks were done great, but the lobster was quite rubbery, where it seemed as though they were kept in the freezer or done in a microwave. As it was my birthday I chose to ignore it, but it was the same for my wife, so we requested that the her lobster be replaced. The replacement had the same issue. I was intent on not having anything spoil my birthday, but after the lobster issue the waiter seemed a bit despondent, where he became less attentive, but we still ordered dessert and a couple more drinks. Now as mentioned before this was meant a birthday reservation, where they had been aware, and when we first entered the hostess was not at her station and my wife confirmed that she saw our reservation and it being listed as a birthday. At no point during the course of our time there was there any acknowledgement of that.More

Everything they advertised about this restaurant is a lie! The service and food is atrocious and it is OVERPRICED. My sister, myself and a few of her friends went here on January 15th, 2023 for her birthday. The moment we got there we were treated...poorly. GEORGE, who was our waiter, spoke to us in a belittling manner and kept rushing us without properly communicating. He purposely ignored us when we ask questions and tried to place our order…as if we were nonexistent. A glass fell and broke, due to how we were closely PACK around the table; there was no room to move around. Instead of tending to it quickly for safety purposes, GEORGE stood there looking at us. I had to say something about it (he clearly saw it by the way) before he went and got the mop!!! Swear, I’m not making this us! One of our party asked for a straw multiple times and when he finally decided to bring it to him he threw it on the freaking table!!! After all that horrible treatment I decided they weren’t going to get any gratuity but they AUTOMATICALLY add it to your bill. Listen, I’ve had bad service before but NEVER like this and I was in my own country dealing with my own people. Sad AF but lesson learned.More

The location of the restaurant is nice. The staff do not smile or greet you. The service is poor, the food ok, not bad, but not worth the price. Dinner for four was almost $500 USD, and we left hungry. The staff showed no interest...in making the experience great. No smiles, no eye contact, and the wait between courses was long enough to watch a full movie. I could not get drunk enough to forget about the misgivings because the cocktail waitress never came by to see if we were interested in a second round. We stayed at the Half Moon resort and this was highly recommended by the concierge, and i will let them know if they like their guests, to please stop recommending this place.More

The food was delicious and the view of the carribean beneath you one of the best on the island. We celebrated my birthday and the staff made it extra special. The food is 5 stars and the staff 6 stars. Reservations are recommended unless you...are eating in a later hour. They are open until 9:00 p.m. but they never rush you out the door. This is one of my new favorite restaurants. If you are weary from eating jerk chicken during every excursion, treat yourself to some prime beef and an array of seafood options. Try the crab cakes and filet mignon. You won't be disappointed!!!More
