Where and What to Eat in Negril

One of the first things on most visitors’ minds, especially first timers, is “Where do we go to eat?” The good news is, there are many fine places to eat, from Jerk chicken road-side vendors cooking from their modified metal drums, to fine dining restaurants found throughout Negril.

Local Cuisine

Jamaican Cuisine Local Cuisine

Most resorts in Negril have restaurants on the property, but there are also many independent “local” restaurants that cook up wonderful local dishes like ackee and saltfish, a wonderful breakfast combination served with dumplings or Johnnycakes, fried or boiled bananas, plantain, yam and Callaloo (a Jamaican version of a vegetable very similar to spinach).

Some other local dishes you’ll find:
  • Curried Goat
  • Chicken
  • Lobster
  • Fried and Brown Stew Chicken
  • Fish (caught locally), like Snapper, Mackerel, and Swordfish
  • These can be pan fried, Escovich, brown stewed, or filleted

There is also a local fish dish called Run down. Run down typically consists of fish, reduced coconut milk, yam, tomato, onions and seasonings. Traditionally, the dish is served with side dishes of dumplings and boiled green bananas. The dish is also sometimes accompanied with baked breadfruit – a fruit with a starchy consistence reminding you of bread. Run down is typically available in Jamaican restaurants. The name appears to originate from the manner in which the fish is thoroughly cooked until it falls apart, or "runs down”.

Taste of Home

Restaurants offering breakfast will also offer all the “American” favorites including eggs and bacon, omelets, etc. Be sure to try the banana pancakes which have been a local favorite for many years. You'll also find great pizza, fish and chips, Jamaican patties, hamburgers, burritos, tacos, sweet and sour chicken, jerk pork and for some unknown reason Negril restaurants almost always have the best French Fries in the world.

There are also restaurants of different types of cuisines, like you would find at home, including Thai, Chinese, Italian, Seafood, German, Vegetarian, International, Mexican, and Pizza.
