So every time we visit Negril we make it a point to have dinner here. I recall first hearing of Norma a Shirley years ago while watching the Great Chefs of the Worl series on tv. One time they featured Great Chefs of the Carribbean and one of the restaurants was a tiny place called Norma's at Wharfside. They made... More

No one there. Eating. Ever. Not surprised. They literally slammed our drinks on the table. Said nothing when we ordered, just stood there. Think they were hot, tired, bored or not been paid. Food was ok, but with no customers ever, there is no promises it was fresh. Not turned over enough. By nighttime I was really sick. Can't place... More

Ten years ago Norma's was probably the best restaurant in Negril. That's no longer the case by a long way.

Dinner,spinach and plantain stuffed chicken breasts,was very good and the portion size was huge. Prices are decent for what you receive. Service was good,but our wait time seemed... More

I was staying close to Norma's and decided to order a chicken breast sandwich from the bar. Nice company to talk to while I waited and got my sandwich to go. The fries were some of the better ones on the beach. For under $10 I was happy.

I don't even know what to say besides the food was terrible and service was very unfriendly. Will not be returning and would not recommend.

Oh boy. We know Jamaica service is on a slow, slow pace but wow. The service was painfully slow. We were the only ones in the entire place for lunch and just watching the inefficiency was almost unreal. This is such a shame as the food was really good. The crab backs were delicious as was the snapper sandwiches. However,... More
