We went to Marguerite's based on a combination of the reviews on Trip Advisor and a recommendation from the concierge at our hotel. The only way that the ratings make sense to me is based on a lack of competition. Dining options are apparently severely limited in Mobay because so many visitors stay at All Inclusive Hotels.

To begin with, it does not look or feel like a fine dining establishment, It was a little odd when we got there and entered what would normally have seemed like a main dining room and found it empty (meaning no seating areas or tables). We ate outside, which was nice as it was on the water, but it was still an odd impression.

It certainly doesn't sound like a fine dining establishment. There was a party at the club that adjoined the restaurant, and we could barely hear each other speak over the music.

When the food came, my lobster was overcooked.

All in all, I did not feel that Marguerite's was worth either the hype or the price. But if you want a special occasion dinner in Mobay, I don't know how many options you have.

One of the first places I ever ate at in Jamaica, outside hotel. We were celebrating a special occasion and was treated great from beginning to end of our visit. Good wine choices and great views. At night its great to hear waves crashing into side if rocks. Food was fresh and tasted great. Service awesome.

Upon entry we were seated at a table in the courtyard. The table had a bar across where your knees should go so you could not sit under the table. When we asked toove they sat is at the bar to prepare another table although there was only one other party in the restaurant. Then they sat us outside at a small table that was so short you could notbfit your knees under it although there was nobody else in the restaurant. The short table was under a lamp dripping bugs. We could hear the music from the club next door and Thr music from the restaurant. The food was not good and my friend had to send her pasta back as it was drowning in cream. We ordered a dessert itvtook over 20 minutes for a slice of key lime pie. Frustrated with the bugs crawling on the table we left ......
