More Negril Restaurants
Negril is chock-full of small, funky restaurants where you’re welcomed like family. Jerk chicken joints can be found everywhere, along with burger bars and fun dives where locals hang out over Red Stripe beer and dominoes. Rick’s (see “Don’t Miss”) is one of the largest, wildest and most popular restaurants in town and one of the best places to watch the sunset. Less crowded options can be found along the main streets and other hidden gems are nestled on side streets, just waiting to be discovered.

The owner, Aubie, adds his personal touch to every element from the name to the “longest happy hour ever.” You’ll love it!
