We were looking forward to a good meal at Jacala but drove all the way there only to find it abandoned and the front door with a board across it. The website had said open, but obviously not. really unfortunate.

This was our second time here and we were not disappointed. The food was outstanding and so was the service!

Alain and Jacques get it. We traveled 30 minutes to go here and they did not disappoint. Was arguably the best meal we had on the island. Sure it’s expensive, but it’s worth EVERY penny. The entire staff is super attentive and the atmosphere is...More

My husband and I finally made it over to Jacala, and I must say, the food was spectacular! We started with the conch ceviche, and lobster soup (I do prefer a more traditional creamy lobster bisque, but I’m a New Englander by birth.) For entrees,...More
