I've eaten at most of the restaurants in Negril and The Blue Mahoe is the best in town. Unfortunately, most restaurants in Negril are mediocre, but The Blue Mahoe does everything right. Shane and Gawhane make excellent food - I always order whatever soup they have because they are all spectacular. The fish tacos are amazing - billowy soft tortilla's... More

I ate here twice and had the brown-stewed snapper each time. It was delicious. The restaurant has both indoor and oceanside seating and was very reasonably priced. I think the snapper was $14. Unlike many of the places in Negril, this place is pretty slick and contemporary but not overpriced. Very good service.

We came here our first night for dinner. Parts of dinner were very good, but some things, like undercooked, inedible grilled calamari and a mediocre Jamaican sampler platter, led to our decision not have dinner here again. On our last night, management asked us to please try the restaurant again. Surprisingly, it was like we were at a different restaurant... More

Our group was made to feel welcome and our server was very attentive. My water glass was never empty and our food arrived very quickly. The meal was delicious. I got the chicken stuffed with callaloo and cheese. It was so good I was trying to figure out how I could replicate it at home. All of us were very... More

Whether you are looking for breakfast, lunch, snacks or dinner you will not be let down by the food at the Blue Mahoe. Fresh ingredients and some of the best Jamaican food I've ever had. Jerk chicken, curried goat, fresh baked bread with honey butter were all so tasty. After trying food outside of the Blue Mahoe at a couple... More

"Upscale" restaurant just past downtown on the way to the cliffs. Beautiful restaurant in a beautiful setting. Very good local food and seafood. Pricey by local standards, but it is snazzier than alot of the "local" places we like to go to.

My wife and I were staying at the Spa Retreat resort and the Blue Mahoe is the restaurant on site. We both extremely lucky that this was the case. Even though we went to 4 a la carte restaurants during our first week at our all inclusive resort and multiple restaurants during our stay at the Spa Retreat, the food... More
