Visited today for lunch and was told I was not allowed upstairs in the dining area because I had on a 'tank top'. My wife who had on a sleeveless top and my other friends who had on Polo shirts would have been allowed in. Needless to say we were all disappointed as it was a hot day (before the... More

The garlic shrimp and lobster is very well plated. The wait is long but well worth it. Go for the escovitch fish if you need a really reliable dish. The place does not disappoint. The best time is mid afternoon to avoid the long dinner way. Enjoy!

I love fried fish. I have eaten at quite a few seafood places in Jamaica and Gloria's still remains one of, if not, the best. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is good for a couple or a group. Many years ago I had an issue where a group of us had to wait very long to eat and... More

Safe environment with no one harassing you. Good place to blend in with the locals while trying seafood done to order. Not a place though if you are short on time or in a rush.

Gloria's is the place to go if you are feeling for some serious fried fish, Jamaican style. Food is always great, staff is most times courteous (9/10) and the atmosphere always welcoming, day or night. They do serve other seafood like shrimp, lobster, etc. but I always go there for the fish...nice big fish! It's a journey from the mainland... More

In my opinion, the fried fish was not worth the wait. The wait staff was inefficient. There had to be a request made more than once for simple expected things such as water. The order was messed up more than once and the fish was not seasoned well for my taste. It's well hyped, but for me it's not worth... More

We locals eat here very often, The menu is limited,(fish, shrimp, lobster ) but everything is fresh, fresh, fresh, & very reasonably priced. It is ALWAYS crowded, so us locals phone ahead to our waiters :)! The tables upstairs are cooler & you get a great view over the harbour & of Kingston. You can wait a long time for... More

After reading all of the reviews I decided to give it a try. I was excited to try the grilled lobster. The restaurant was a long drive from Kingston where we were staying. When we got there we found out that their credit card machine had not been working and the closest ATM was at the airport (10 mins away).... More
