Unlike any of the other places we have eaten at in Negril the food arrives in under an hour - and when it did it was excellent - that on top of very friendly service and a very easy going atmosphere made this my favorite...More

Our group of twelve had dinner here last week. We enjoyed meeting Mr. and Mrs. Shark - it appeared they run the restaurant by themselves. Those in our group who are adventuresome eaters especially loved this place. My 23 yr old son had the garlic...More

Honestly I felt like the price of the food was a bit high for what you got, compared to other eating places in the area. I have not complaints, and the food was good, but not great in my opinion.

We stayed across the road at Tensing Pen and so glad we wondered over to Sharks! My husband had the oxtail and said it was the best meal he's had in Jamaica. I had the curry lobster which was delicious. All at good local prices!...More

We were staying at Mirage and really regret we did not try Shark's sooner. We went for lunch our last day. The food is very authentic and excellent and the prices very reasonable (~$10 for most meals). We liked it so much we returned for...More
