The owner Juliet is one of the sweetest you will meet. Her daughter Shannakay is not only very sweet but one of the prettiest people on the island we've seen. We stayed at Tensing... More

What at great meal as always. We've had breakfast here on previous vacations and you can't go wrong with the prices and everything... More

Ate dinner here twice after not having visited the last couple of years and pleased to say the food and atmosphere haven't changed. It's opposite Tensing Pen and in between Ras Roddy's and a new jerk center which we were going to try but that looked a bit dark and dingy. Shark's is a colorful little place with lots of... More

Sharks had such amazing food that we ate here 3 out of 3 days for lunch. The owner was welcoming and friendly and made the most amazing tasting snapper and conch that I have ever eaten. It was perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. It has nice outdoor eating and is small and quaint but big flavors. And if you... More

Fabulous food, BEST Jerk sauce on the island made to order by the lovely woman who owns the place. I promised a review and here it is. Order a bottle to take home.

I ate here twice this week and both tines it was great. I had lobster and I was worried it would not taste fresh but it was wonderful. Way better than Red Lobster. Food takes a while but it Is all cooked to order so worth a wait.

We went for dinner on a rainy night. Food was fresh and hot? We ordered curried chicken, oxtail, curried conch. It came with slaw and fresh, hot rice. These were the most flavourful curries we have had. Our only complaint was the mant tiny bones we had to gingerly pick through. We would advice using boneless meat or larger pieces... More

One word "delicious"! We went twice, the snapper escoveitch was the best fish I have ever had and I am an avid fisherman who enjoys cooking and eating fresh fish. Go and try it, a true Jamaican experience!

If you like local Jamaican food this place is a good choice. Friendly service, fun people watching & the food is good. We ordered pan fried jerk snapper & oxtail. Prices are reasonable.
