We were walking along the hip strip towards the port and needed a rest. Bought 3 beers and two games of pool. It was a nice break for us. Seemed nice and left us alone to do our thing. Menu is deceiving as they didn't seem to have stuff that is on it... or perhaps it was just for us... More

We stopped for a couple beers. Great service, a fave with the locals, super casual. A few vendors set up near the entrance that are very respectful and nice to bargain with. They leave you in peace to enjoy your visit and kindly ask you to look at what they have as you are leaving.

Staff cannot mix drinks and behave as if you are ordering from a corner shop when you ask them for anything. Wanted a shot of vodka and Ting and they said I need to buy the whole bottle of Ting and she made a mess of the shot of vodka

I've literally been to a different restaurant each day of my 7 day stay (Mobay, Negril and Ocho Rios) trying to find good fish. Mobay Proper was hands down the best!!! I will be returning several times before I leave. It was very fresh and cooked to order. Seasoned well and spicy. Done to perfection!

Our guidebook listed this as a restaurant, but really it is a bar that serves some food. The menu was already limited, and both items we ordered were "off". The whole inside is taken up by the pool table so diners must sit at plastic tables on a cramped deck next to the main road. The food, when it finally... More

This is a great place to stop and have fresh good food. I tend to have the fried chicken which is always juicy with mash but have also had the steam roast fish done to order and is delicious! It is a local spot with pool table and bar and lots of outside areas to chill and have a red... More

Food was good but took literally over an hr to get 4 dinners to go. Ambience was nice with good music and pool table. Girls were fairly nice but didn't do US conversion rate correctly and charged for plantains extra which should have been a side without stating or offering a side item also 2 dinners were double what she...
