My friend and I were the only non-locals when we visited early in August. We were charged for three pounds of fish, and were served so little fish that we left and went back to our hotel to eat dinner. The fish we ate was good, but came with way more bones than either fish had to begin with. My... More

I have been to this restaurant several times and am always glad I came. There are simple tables in an open air setting, overlooking the ocean. You simply walk into the kitchen area and choose your favourite fish, from the catch of the day. Request that it is fried, or steamed and stuffed with local vegetables, such as okra. They... More

A taxi cab driver told my friend and I about this place and told us this is the best fish in Montego Bay, so we knew we had to go since we were sick of hotel food and wanted to get a taste of some local food. The fish here came out hot and wrapped in foil marinating with juices... More

Food took awhile but the parrot fish was amazing and I asked to come in and take pictures which they happily allowed me to do!

We showed up last night and picked out our fish. When we asked how long it would take about a half an hour for one steamed fish and one escovitch. Fort-five minutes passed and by then at least twenty people came and left. We waited ten more minutes and then finally approached the staff, they hadn't even started the fish!... More

Our party of four pulled up to the hut style open-concept eatery that was situated seaside 20mins eastward of the Margaritaville strip. The sexy Hostess/Bartender/Server who seemed to be known as "Browning" took very special care of us for the entire visit. After taking our drink order we were brought round to the kitchen where we picked our fresh catch-of-the-day.... More

We had the shrimp, conch, and bammy. All was very tasty! However, it took over an hour to get our food. So don't go if you're in a hurry (or have a crabby cab driver waiting!)

Limited menu but it is all delicious. Be ready for some bold flavors! Try the Bammys. Right on the water, and usually there are puffers, crabs or sharks to observe while you wait. Select your own fish or lobster if you like. Fast and friendly waitstaff. Relax and enjoy.
