We had a fun night and nice dinner at the Mongoose in anticipation of the Saturday night live music. The Boston Jerk burger was to die for! Highly recommended. The jerk pork with rice and peas was nice too, with plenty of extra jerk sauce,...More

Courteous staff and very good seafood. It is located right on the main in a central location. We would definitely return. Wished they had more local desserts.

While visiting Jamaica in May, I went to Mongoose 3 times. I love the atmosphere here, the selector (DJ) played some nice old school reggae during like the happy hour time. The service is great and the food and cocktails are good. The only thing...More

Great location in downtown, away from the resorts! Nice servers, good food! We sat outside, close to the bar, and it was still quite!

We were there to check out the area for Christmas Eve and stopped in to grab a beer and something to eat. We did just that. The service was quick, beer cold, and egg rolls were unique in a fun, delicious way.

Mongoose Jamaica is more than a Restaurant, it's an experience.This Restaurant is "something different," We did something 'different' with the name as well, when we choose the "Mongoose" which has a rich history in Jamaica. Breakfast ranges from typical Jamaican fare of ackee and salt fish to pancakes and French toast. For dinner, there's chicken southern fried, curried, grilled lobster, grilled or curried, pork or steak. If you prefer, grab a sandwich, a pizza, some Jamaican jerk, or something from the grill, or maybe a cocktail from the bar. Black forest cakes and cheesecakes are our specialty desserts.
