While visiting Jamaica in May, I went to Mongoose 3 times. I love the atmosphere here, the selector (DJ) played some nice old school reggae during like the happy hour time. The service is great and the food and cocktails are good. The only thing I would change is to tone the live band down a little. I just felt... More

Great location in downtown, away from the resorts! Nice servers, good food! We sat outside, close to the bar, and it was still quite!

We were there to check out the area for Christmas Eve and stopped in to grab a beer and something to eat. We did just that. The service was quick, beer cold, and egg rolls were unique in a fun, delicious way.

The food was OK'ish but a very long wait (yeah mahn, I know Jamaica time). The service was good but the reason why we went there was to listen to the advertised live music (Saturday night) which by the time we left still no band in sight. We went another night (we came back so after all not so bad)... More

We went on a Friday night and the place was pretty dead, although we did go a bit early. Everything started off well but a bit slow. After getting drinks we tried to order an app. My SO is allergic to eggs so the waitress said she would check on the ingredients for the app as well as take our... More

Mongoose Jamaica is more than a Restaurant, it's an experience.This Restaurant is "something different," We did something 'different' with the name as well, when we choose the "Mongoose" which has a rich history in Jamaica. Breakfast ranges from typical Jamaican fare of ackee and salt fish to pancakes and French toast. For dinner, there's chicken southern fried, curried, grilled lobster, grilled or curried, pork or steak. If you prefer, grab a sandwich, a pizza, some Jamaican jerk, or something from the grill, or maybe a cocktail from the bar. Black forest cakes and cheesecakes are our specialty desserts.
