We had been a couple of times to Collette’s and had some ok vegan food as we’d been struggling to find reasonably priced vegan food in Negril. We booked with her for a third night - 1900 and turned up just after 1900 to find three measly portions of greens and potatoes (?) being put in polystyrene containers for us to take away or sit at her roadside table. The inside table had been packed away. Not the way to treat loyal guests. Shameful

Collette"s bar was a highlight for me! WOW...can this lady cook!!! Best fried chicken I have ever eaten! Such a quaint place with the vibes of Jamaica you can't beat! Collette is a wonderful person...so giving and kind...I can't say enough about her! We did meet in Canada a few years back so when I got the chance to see her in her hometown I was excited to say the least! I feel like I have known her forever and am proud to call her my friend! Collette's is a must try!

What a wonderful experience. Colette was the most charming, friendly and fantastic host. Definitely the most memorable bit of Negril is so far.

Wonderful afternoon meeting Collette and visiting her bar. Her and her son Shemar cooked me a wonderful meal of fried chicken, potato salad and local vegetables, as well as his famous sauce! Collette has a fun and vibrant personality and easy to see why she is loved across the island. Was a pleasure to visit and share a meal and couple of red stripes over a chat. All the best for the future!

Finally had lunch at Collette's, did not disappoint. We let her know ahead we were coming and the meal was fantastic. Fried chicken and Brown stew chicken. Loved the potato salad. Great people give it a try.

Enjoyed cold beers after finally meeting the great Collette after all these years. Relaxed outside on the bench while watching all the fun on Red Ground Road. Did not have dinner but definitely want to try the fried chicken and potato salad next trip.

If you vacation in Negril a visit to Collette’s in town is a must do. In a country with so many friendly people, Collette is one of the friendliest. She has an infectious laugh, a larger than life personality and she welcomes everyone with open arms. She serves ice cold Red Stripe and other beverages. If you arrange in advance she’ll make you a delicious lunch or dinner. For our group she and her son Shemar made escovich fish, fried chicken, and a veggie plate complete with sides. It was one of our best and least expensive meals during our two week vacation.

I was truly spoiled by Collette Parker ❤️ two nights in a row. The first night was her infamous fried chicken. Otherwise known from here on as “ That Chicken” because from that first bite, you get the crunch from the batter that fried chicken is supposed to have and the seasoning that sends your taste buds soaring, it’s tender and oh so juicy you’ll be coming back for more . And that’s what I did. But Miss Collette asks that you pre order her food so she has enough time to prepare it just right for you.
My second night, I had slow roasted curry goat over a charcoal flame. She took the majority of the bones out so all I had was the most tender full-flavoured perfectly spiced morsels of goat along with her one of a kind rice and peas. Died and gone to food heaven. She puts so much care/love in each dish she makes. ❤️❤️❤️
Collettes is a must to anyone travelling to Negril. It may be off the beaten path but just ask any taxi driver to take you to Collettes Bar in Red Ground and they know where to take you. Nadine provides the upmost service, she knows customer service (unlike anywhere else in Negril) while Collette herself will entertain you with laughs and memories for years.

Just returned from a great lunch at Collette’s bar. From the moment I contacted her through Facebook she treated me like a long lost friend.

We had a lovely fried chicken lunch with potato salad and vegetables and a few beers and it was just great.

Collette, her lovely family and her friends will make you feel super welcome straight away.

Thanks for a totally great afternoon
