Roots Bamboo was as expected based on other reviews: basic but charming and clean, friendly environment and staff, right on the beach, with an attached bar/cafe and a music stage. It was also, again as mentioned elsewhere, loud, particularly at night. This was the case...More

We arrived about 8pm for a meal and watch Aly C later. Service was quite slow but we were not in a hurry. Sound level is way too high when just playing tracks. Food was fine. The band came to life when Aly came on...More

I had the pleasure of attending a few live shows including Beenie Man, and the venue is incredible. The stage is set close to the beach and there is an open concept dining area that lets you feel like everything is a true beach party....More

We stopped here on the way back from a day trip to Negril. We had a couple drinks on the beach and the people were very nice. Nice vibe of the place, made me think of much simpler times back in the 70's.

A smaller venue, seating a little cramped around stage, but would go again for live music. No DJ's. Lot's of locals. Bathrooms are very far from bar & stage.
