We ordered starters to begin with and had quite a few selection which didn't disappoint us. The Jerk Fish was my order hmmm hmmm yummy. The live band set the tone for the evening which help to make the evening special. The ambiance was just right for an evening away from the kids :-)!!! Thumbs up to the staff that... More

Me and my family were staying in ochi and came across the beautiful looking place that was nicely decorated and clean inside. We booked dinner for 6 persons for a New Year's Eve dinner and also purchased tickets for the all white nye party. We were first seated in a corner with no lighting so it was hard to read... More

We were staying nearby and this looked nice as we walked past. We were not disappointed - friendly service, food was delicious and not expensive. We didn't wait long for drinks or food which was great. Recommend!

Traditional Jamaican food. I recommend the oxtail and the roast pork dinners. Perfect with Red Stripe beer. Good service. Nice waitress. Better deal if you pay in Jamaican dollars.

I apologize for your distasteful experience. During the Holiday season it was extremely busy , however we had a few glitches, staff were limited that specific night I agree . But I will ensure that I address particularly the waiting period and focused attention of customers with my staff. Hope to see you again . More

Came here as part of our dunns river fall package day. Food was of a good quality and very good also for my wife who's a veggie. Unfortunately we were pretty rushed by our guide as we'd of liked to have a few drinks here too.

Positives 1. Nicely decorated internally and restaurant appeared clean 2. Staff seemed friendly enough Negatives 1. The starters are way too big for one person. We ordered 1 chicken tikka starter and 1 peanut tikka. The staff should have informed us of the size as 1 starter is enough for 2 or 3 people to share. I think there were... More

Description
Mongoose Jamaica is more than a Restaurant, it's an experience.This Restaurant is "something different," We did something 'different' with the name as well, when we choose the "Mongoose" which has a rich history in Jamaica. Breakfast ranges from typical Jamaican fare of ackee and salt fish to pancakes and French toast. For dinner, there's chicken southern fried, curried, grilled lobster, grilled or curried, pork or steak. If you prefer, grab a sandwich, a pizza, some Jamaican jerk, or something from the grill, or maybe a cocktail from the bar. Black forest cakes and cheesecakes are our specialty desserts.
