We loved it! The view was amazing even though it was a cloudy day. The service is great. The food not so good. The live band, and. dancing is very uplifting . Make sure to go on a clear day and capture the sunset.

Went to Jamaica with my wife last year and stayed at Sandals Negril. While the resort didn't completely live up to our expectations, Rick's was amazing. I didn't want to go, but she talked me into it and I'm glad I went. Best view ever,...More

Went to Rick's cafe with the catamaran cruise that sets off from Margaritaville. The divers are incredible, but after a 15 minutes I was done. It is a great one time experience, I just don't do loud crowds, so I probably wouldn't do Rick's cafe...More

OUR STORY BEGINS with the opening of Rick's Cafe by its founder, Richard Hershman, in April 1974. At the time, Negril was a sleepy fishing village with little development. It lacked many modern amenities such as electricity, telephone and hot running water. Our beautiful little cliffside location was originally owned by a local doctor, the son of the first Governor General of independent Jamaica.

RICK’S CAFE was the first public bar and restaurant of its type on the West End Cliffs, offering an alternative to Negril's majestic seven mile beach. From the beginning, Rick's Cafe boasted an unrivaled view of the sunset from its naturally formed cliffs. Over the years, visitors and locals alike have designated Rick's Cafe as Negril's premier gathering spot and our sunsets have become a Jamaican tradition.
