Kept hearing about this place. The locals said it had the best jerk chicken on the Island and they did NOT LIE. I look forward to coming back to Negril and visiting this little piece of heaven.

The food here is consistently good, succulent jerk chicken and jerk pork. The jerk sauce is the best! Good menu choices and good choice of drink. Staff are friendly and welcoming and a nice chilled atmosphere to eat.
