It was a real Jamaican experience; not your average tourist trap type restaurant but a "real feel" eatery. Very popular among the locals and you don't want to be in a hurry, but the wait is worth it.

Authentic Jamaican food, great portions and friendly staff. Food is always great and well presented. Best meal is the grilled chicken steak. Visited half a dozen times in 2 weeks for sit-in or take out. Superb breakfasts too.

So much better experience than the resort food. Our hotel was great, but you don't get the authentic local Jamaican flavor. Sweet Spice has it in spades. Recommended by many taxi drivers & a couple locals, it did not disappoint. We went for lunch so...More

Honestly, depends on your taxi driver. I think we paid $10 or $15 for round trip. You could walk, but I wouldn't do it at night or alone.
