Respectfully, I love the island I have visited many many times over the years venturing to many parts. However, the portions of the food & drinks donot fit the cost. Very delicious food, the best in the world however 3oz of rice, coleslaw & a...piece of fish should not cost $20 US dollars.More

Great selection of frozen drinks, punches, Red Stripe, Corona, plus a full menu with jerk chicken, jerk pork, pizza, salad, vegetarian selection of the day, sweet potato fries, sliders, you name it. But the best was the service. Two days in a row we were...blessed by Latonya, who kept great track of us, split checks, ran our credit cards, etc. right at our chairs. Professional is the word for the Sand Bar crew! You won't be sorry to visit Doctor's Cave Bathing Club, my friend.More

We are visiting the amazing S hotel in Montego Bay Jamaica and came down to this beach front restaurant at the foot of the resort. Best pizza I have ever had. And the service was top notch. Shawna was a delight. Will be back multiple...times during our vacay.More

This restaurant serves nice affordable meals. The staff is friendly and the ambiance was good. I ordered the chicken wrap and it was delicious! Nice chill spot in a very convenient location since you dont have to leave the premises to get food. There's also...a bar that you can get drinks. Everything is on site. Would reccomend.More

We decided to get a table and have lunch and wine instead of renting beach chairs and an umbrella. The price of drinks here is a moving target so make sure you ask before you order. The servers have Ipads on which the prices can...be determined. We asked and were shown prices and decided on an overpriced bottle of white wine, but it is the beach and the view was stunning. We also had a whole fried red snapper and an order of the crab cakes. Each was $15 and came with a side. The fish was wonderful but you have to be ok with the whole fish concept. The fries were great and the "rice and peas" (which is actually rice and beans) was passable and plentiful but not extremely flavorful. Service was hit or miss depending on the server you got. It seemed to be a team effort so it was ok that our server seemed a little off her game, because the others helped out.More

Let me tell you. This was by far the best two meals I have had in Jamaica. My first visit to Bar, I ordered the steamed Red fish and it was perfect. I ordered rum punch prior to my meal and didn't get half way...through the cup and I was tipsy. So the drinks were awesome! My second visit I ordered the curry shrimp. a beef pattie, and a berry smoothie to drink. Was very good as well. The food was seasoned exceptionally well and I enjoyed every bite. The guy in the picture was the cook that prepared my red fish, so i had to get a picture for bragging purposes...lolMore

First, this is an amazing beach and unusually shy away from eating in sandy areas but this was perfect! Staff was really cool and funny, gave great suggestions on food and drink. We ended up going twice in one day & ordering takeout on our...last day because everything was so good. Very relaxing experienceMore
