If you want to eat local food, this is the place to go.
I went once with a local and couldn't resist to take my friends there again.

Trying to get away from the touristy places, we went to this mom-and-pop place not far from our hotel and have returned a few times! Escovitch fish is very good, garlic shrimp and fried chicken are excellent. Rice and peas--wonderful; festival and bammy--hit or miss. The place has a fully stocked bar and cold beer.

Fancy Seafood has a LOT of take away orders. So sometimes they are fast and sometimes there can be a wait, but the food is good and prices decent ($600 for fried chicken with a side is a steal for dinner!) so it's worth the time. And THIS IS JAMAICA--there will be loud music--the owner of the restaurant cannot control those businesses playing music around her! Relax and try something new! If you cannot wait, call ahead--876-974-4402 (everyone appreciates a head's up if there should be a reservation for a big group!).

The noise of very loud music from across the street was unbearable. Service was very slow (we were a large group) as in very very slow. The food arrived in a completely disjointed way and there was chaos when it came to paying. The food was ordinary. Nice Pina Colada though.

You can enjoy fancy’s way of prepping seafood. A nice way with wine, coconut milk and tasty spices or you chose any of the regular ways!

Parking is tough in this street but we got lucky.

Food is cooked to order and might take a while since the locals also come for pick up frequently!

It is surely worth the wait just beware it is not the romantic hang out since the normal jamaican vibe resides in the street with ghetto blaster music, honking cars and so on!
