Dining at Jambel was a great experience for my daughter and I. We enjoyed the nice variety of foods laid out for us! The rice and beans, fried plantains and fresh fruits were my favourites!

We visited the Jerk Pit on our first night in San Pedro and it did well enough to fill our bellies after a long day of travel. We visited on the buffet night, which is certainly the way to do it if you want to...More

The breakfast was really good. If you like something a little spicy and savory, go for the huevos rancheros. If you like sweet, go for the French toast. The piña colada was good and was a really nice size. The daqueri was a rip-off. I...More

Not a true Jamaican restraurant. Jerk chicken is only flavored with sauce, very disappointing. Prices are somewhat high for the amount of food you get.

Modest but tasty buffet - $20/US per person. Rice and beans, fried plantains, jerk shrimp and chicken, fresh fruit. Live music with a talented singer - familiar songs with a reggae twist. And of course the beautiful view of the Caribbean with a warm evening...More

I am so glad that we were staying at the Sun Breeze Suites because we didn't have to go any further that our own back yard to get the best jerk on the beach!!

If you go, go for the buffet. It is definitely an all you can eat buffet but the options are mediocre aside from the Jerk Chicken (which is definitely spicy). Service was excellent. The live musician was phenomenal actually. However, there are definitely better dinner...More

Very reasonable especially the buffet when they have it. I remember they have lobster, shrimp, chicken, deserts, and great drinks. See the pictures posted.
