This is just what it says in it's name. The food is great and reasonably priced ,place and people are just great and the nicest thing is that the owners are active in helping our community. Giving back and helping others are their motto.

On our first night in Negril, my husband and I were looking for somewhere to enjoy dinner. This place is near our hotel and caught our eye. It was like we were having a private candlelight dinner to ourselves. We ordered Chicken Scaloppini and Chicken Parmesan. Both were very good, fresh and large portion sizes.

Due to Hurricane Matthew approaching, there were limited options for dining. While staying next door we walked to Chill Awhile for 2 meals. Both were very good. Soups both nights were awesome. Service great, and atmosphere is very nice.

Man, some of these reviews are a little harsh on chill awhile. I'll lay it out for you....I stayed at idle awhile so chill awhile was convenient. I didn't eat a ton of meals here, just a couple.

Nice staff and location, but prices are higher than nearly all comparable Negril restaurants, and portions are very small. Food quality is average at best.
