The cook and owner at this location make you feel warm and welcome! Jerk chicken, shrimp and fish were all very good. Portion size was plenty for two at a reasonable price. Must give it a try!

You have to seek out the local fare. We had eaten twice next-door at Ahh Bee's which was okay. I had seen Sharks but wasn't sure what to make of it. But after asking one of the security guard's across the street where we were staying about it we decided to give it a try. Food was excellent, and we... More

This is a small "hole in the wall" beside Ahh Bee's. It has good local flavor, both in the food and the clientele. Inexpensive and tasty.

We'd eaten at Shark's before and found it to be a typical -- and typically reliable -- food shack, with excellent juices. We returned this trip, because the neighboring restaurant -- AhhhBee's -- wasn't open at the time. And we got just what we expected: good fresh food prepared well and served well. In many places, that would earn higher... More

Curry chicken, jerk, and fried conch all delish. Try them all! Also the cucumber juice was also worth the try. Don't be shy, stop on by!!!

After the trip from the airport and a few red stripes in, my husband and I were starving. We wondered outside of the Tensing Pen gate and found Sharks. We sat outside under the thatched roof and enjoyed watching the school kids arrive in their uniforms and the traffic go by. My husband ordered jerk chicken and I got fried... More

We had lunch at this family run restaurant on New Year's Day. They were so friendly and the food was great.

We have stayed at Tensing Pen twice. Sharks is located right across the street. Juliette's pan fried snapper and cole slaw are the best in Negril. We went there twice and ordered the snapper both times. You will not be disappointed!
