I saw the reviews which were all good. I walked down from my hotel being hassled by a dozen street hustlers being offered everything from a taxi ride to a tour to drugs to girls. All of them remembered me from the airport or the hotel or bar or ... When I got there the locals were partying on the... More

This restaurant serves corn pork soup everyday and that's what I always get. They also do steam fish done to order on the grill on weekends which I've had a few times and that also is great.

While we are on vacation, we come to this restaurant on more than one occasion. This is a Jamaican restaurant, close to the market, just off the hip strip. First off, you have to get used to not seeing prices on the menu. There are none. The menu is limited but it includes all the main Jamaican dishes. I personally... More

We had the snapper, one steamed and one fried. Both were seasoned perfectly with a savory texture. Meals came with rice, potatoes, okra and carrots.

We were walking along the hip strip towards the port and needed a rest. Bought 3 beers and two games of pool. It was a nice break for us. Seemed nice and left us alone to do our thing. Menu is deceiving as they didn't seem to have stuff that is on it... or perhaps it was just for us... More

We stopped for a couple beers. Great service, a fave with the locals, super casual. A few vendors set up near the entrance that are very respectful and nice to bargain with. They leave you in peace to enjoy your visit and kindly ask you to look at what they have as you are leaving.

Staff cannot mix drinks and behave as if you are ordering from a corner shop when you ask them for anything. Wanted a shot of vodka and Ting and they said I need to buy the whole bottle of Ting and she made a mess of the shot of vodka

I've literally been to a different restaurant each day of my 7 day stay (Mobay, Negril and Ocho Rios) trying to find good fish. Mobay Proper was hands down the best!!! I will be returning several times before I leave. It was very fresh and cooked to order. Seasoned well and spicy. Done to perfection!

Our guidebook listed this as a restaurant, but really it is a bar that serves some food. The menu was already limited, and both items we ordered were "off". The whole inside is taken up by the pool table so diners must sit at plastic tables on a cramped deck next to the main road. The food, when it finally... More
