We have returned to Cool Spot now for several years. Each time the curried goat was a delight. I bet we will try Cool Spot again on our next trip to Negril

My husband & I went here for dinner (he ate not me), he ordered curried shrimp. When it came there was 7 shrimp with rice & peas with coleslaw, adequate portion size until it was time to pay. The only item priced on the board was juices @ 300 Jamaican dollars, which is ok. The curried shrimp was 2500 Jamaican... More

Clean restaurant adequate service. They charge tourist more than locals for the same food almost three times the price. Not worth paying three times the price.

Unfortunately, the evening we decided to stop in for dinner, it wasn't on the menu! So my husband and I settled for the fried chicken which i had heard... More

However, my fried snapper was delicious as well. Just beware the yellow peppers that look like bell peppers. I had a... More

I travel all over the world and I understand that tourist will pay higher cost and this place was one of them. The oxtail and goat were delicious but I could get this back home in Montreal for half the price.

For several years now we have been going back each year to eat at Cool Spot. We have never been disappointed eating their curried goad or their oxtail. Both are delicious choices. You even can take our own bottle of wine as we did just last night"

Best fried chicken I have ever eaten. A MUST! We were referred by the Taxi driver at our hotel and ate there twice. Breakfast and lunch were both great!
