Dickie's Best Kept Secret, Port Antonio

Jamaica, Caribbean
A4 Highway
Port Antonio
Tel: 876 809 6276's insider take:

Looks can be deceiving, especially when it comes to this driftwood shack teetering on a seaside bluff one mile west of Port Antonio. The owner, Alvin "Dickie" Butler, who trained at Frenchman's Cove Resort, has been rustling up home-style Jamaican meals and presenting them with Continental aplomb since the early 1970s. Because of limited space, day-in-advance reservations are essential for Butler's five-course, cooked-to-order prix-fixe feasts, which typically include dishes such as an omelet with carrots, cabbage, and callaloo, shrimp stewed in a spicy Creole sauce, and steamed Caribbean lobster with garlic butter and lime.
