Negril Restaurants Nightlife
Negril restaurants are plentiful and varied, from simple jerk chicken barbecue carts to romantic, oceanfront restaurants serving fresh lobster bisque. As most travellers will agree, some of the best holiday experiences involve sampling local delicacies and national dishes. Your vacation in Negril should be no different; there are a number of great Negril restaurants to choose from, each offering their own unique take on the savoury dishes and authentic flavours of Jamaica. Don't take it from us alone though; this article by Steve Petusevsky perfectly sums up the Negril food scene.
Independently operated but located on property, Ocean Breeze restaurant offers the convenience of enjoying a local lunch or dinner without having to come off the beach. Full bar service is available, providing ice cold local beers, blended drinks, and smoothies made with local fruits. The menu includes a delicious jerk chicken, fish of the day, and made to order salads. Complimentary room service is offered, and the staff are happy to accommodate special requests when possible.
Located along the beach, within walking distance from Beach House Villas, Kuyaba Restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner in a casual atmosphere. The menu features a wide range of cuisine - including a few vegetarian small plates - and friendly service.
KENNYS ITALIAN CAFE
Kenny's Italian Cafe is another nearby dining option. Located across the street from Beach House Villas, this cool little cafe serves up pizza, pasta, and a side of shisha. It's just what you'd expect in the capital of casual - an Italian restaurant and hookah bar in a tropical garden setting. At night, enjoy a lively atmosphere with DJs and dancing.
Next to Kenny's Italian Cafe is the charming Cafe Goa. This little cafe (pictured above) is known for its banana pancakes, fresh hot coffee, and Bloody Mary's. The interior features an eclectic and homey mix of furniture and decor, accented by flags from around the world. Prices are decent and service is typically faster than the usual island place. Cash is required and small bills are recommended.
