“Will go again next January!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2011

My fiance and I ate here last January when we visited Breezes Runaway Bay for a week in late January of this year, we shared a Seafood platter and had a couple of Red Strip Each, I think the Tab was 40 U.S dollars, not bad in our opinion. Food quality was good, and beer was ice cold! My Fiance did not care for the Snapper served with the head still on the fish!!! That curbed her appetite a bit but meant more for me!! ;-)! We are heading back to Jamaica January of 2012 and we will be returning to Flavors Beach Bar and Restaurant!! Check it out if around Runaway Bay you will not be disappointed!!!

“Nice beach, food soso”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2011

Went to Flavours Beach Bar and Restaurant while in Runaway Bay for a quick lunch and to get out of our resort for a while. The beach is very nice and you can walk for a long way, the beer was cold, but the food was nothing special altho we did not order the fish or lobster. The bathrooms are kept locked and is a problem to find someone to open them for you. The locals were nice so would probably go back but stick with the beer.

“really good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2011

We went here for dinner one night - as a break whilst staying at Breezes Runaway Bay. The restaurant is about 5 to 10 minutes walk along the beach or road from the hotel and provided a really lovely evening that felt a bit more Jamaican. The people in there seemed to be locals who were quite chatty and the atmosphere was a nice contrast from the hotel. We both ordered lobster and thought it was great. Overall had a really good evening and would definitely recommend it. The only caveat is that the lobster wasn't especially cheap.

“Great Place Day or Night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2011

We rented a Villa just down the beach from Flavours.
One must stop in there if yoiu are close.
We had a Rastaman draw our portraits ate and drank there most days for about 4 weeks
The red Stripe is cold, the food is hot and they will change the tunes if you have something you want to share. Cant remember when the music stopped but I was out by about 3am each night (thanks Mr. Appleton) and the tunes could still be heard in our Villa.
The locals, Vegas and his crew were quite a sceen getting high and doing their crafts in the morning only to sell on the beach all day. Like a bunch of kids sitting around laughing and making crafts to sell to the ``all inclusives`` tourists that wander beyond their gated beach.

“Great Escape From the Hotel Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

Visited FLavours on Monday 11 September 2011 with another couple form Breezes Runaway Bay. Great local restaurant; infact we were the only "non Jamaicans" there. We settled on fried chicken & chips with 2 drinks which came to $19 US. The otehr couple had a jerk burger/chips and teh fried chicken, rice and salad for $25 US. Great food chicken was moist, fries hot and the beer cold. We felt very safe here, sat bty the beach until our ride came to pick us up ($20 US return from Breezes Runaway Bay.... yes we could have walked the 5 mins but it was getting dark.

We would highly recommend Flavours fro anyone wanting to escape the resort for a couple of hrs.
