Concierge.com's insider take:
Suspended on a stone terrace over Pristine Cove, this thatch-roofed restaurant inside the the Rockhouse Hotel plays a reggae soundtrack that seems synchronized with the waves slapping the shore. Here, chef Kevin Broderick serves up a terrific menu of what he calls New Jamaican cuisine—updated versions of local dishes like coconut toast, salt fish with ackee (Jamaica's national dish; ackee is a local fruit something like a lychee), and jerk chicken in Scotch bonnet sauce. Other choices include lobster enchiladas, crab turnovers, and blackened mahimahi with mango chutney. To accompany, there are the requisite Negril sunset tropical cocktails and a pretty good wine list.
Open daily 7 to 11 pm.
