Spent the afternoon and early evening here enjoying the live music, divers, and then a magnificent sunset. Introduced my husband to a bucket of beers lol Do not miss this spot if you visit Negril.

Visited to see the sunset. This is one of the main tourist attractions so it does get busy. We did get a seat so had a good view of the sunset - otherwise it’s a case of standing around.

OUR STORY BEGINS with the opening of Rick's Cafe by its founder, Richard Hershman, in April 1974. At the time, Negril was a sleepy fishing village with little development. It lacked many modern amenities such as electricity, telephone and hot running water. Our beautiful little cliffside location was originally owned by a local doctor, the son of the first Governor General of independent Jamaica.

RICK’S CAFE was the first public bar and restaurant of its type on the West End Cliffs, offering an alternative to Negril's majestic seven mile beach. From the beginning, Rick's Cafe boasted an unrivaled view of the sunset from its naturally formed cliffs. Over the years, visitors and locals alike have designated Rick's Cafe as Negril's premier gathering spot and our sunsets have become a Jamaican tradition.
