So much better experience than the resort food. Our hotel was great, but you don't get the authentic local Jamaican flavor. Sweet Spice has it in spades. Recommended by many taxi drivers & a couple locals, it did not disappoint. We went for lunch so the traditional dinner items (oxtail, curried goat, etc.) were not ready yet. We had the... More

Sweet Spice cannot be missed when in Negril. The Oxtail and Fried Chicken are the only two things I've ever had on the menu because, well, I love them too much to try anything else. It's not the nicest place to dine in, I would suggest take out but if you want the full experience...go for it.

Everyone was talking about Sweet Spice so finally I got one rainy afternoon in April. They didn't have several things on the menu. The food took hours to be served, and the food was only Average. Will not go again unless my dude wants to go there.

The best curry goat, vegetable fried rice was a hit! The fish any style to die for. On vacation, went twice would have gone more times if we had more time! A MUST TRY!

After a couple of nights in Negril, we were ready to get away from the resort restaurants and try some local food at a more local price. :) We very much enjoyed our dinner at Sweet Spice. The food was good and we found our server to be very pleasant. As others have mentioned, the service is not fast (aka... More

We knew going in Service might be slow based on reviews on TA and other websites, We watched a table of people leave because no one took their orders. But we got service in about 10 minutes after arrival. I came for the Oxtail but they were already out of it - so I ordered the curry chicken and CB2... More

Good food at a fair price. All of the cab drivers in Negril will tell you about this place. My friends and I wished they had mentioned that it's a dry restaurant. Not a huge deal, but it's worth mentioning.

Four of us stopped at Sweet Spot and had lunch while out on an excursion. We ordered the Oxtail, Curried Chicken, Lobster and Special Fried Rice. Everyone really enjoyed it, the oxtail was awesome!! The place was full of locals eating and we appeared to be the only table of tourists which is a good sign!!

If you are in Negril and want to try Local food, this is the best restaurant for it! I found this jewel after visiting MargaritaVille, is really close. This restaurant is family friendly, with a colorful Jamaican deco and a very friendly staff. You will find something you like on the menu. They provide finger-licking food, I tried the chicken...
