With a following of food lovers, this destination isn't known simply for its eclectic cooking and their signature staple of salads, but here they're also masters of sandwiches.

JoJo's Jerk Pit is at 12 Waterloo Road. If the idea of Caribbean food coupled with eclectic sounds like perfection, consider this restaurant on your vacation in Jamaica. Sandwiches, soups, plate lunches, and of course jerk seasoned meats make the cut at JoJo's Jerk Pit.

Kuyaba on the Beach

Negril Beach Hotel Zone | (876) 957-4318

Kuyaba on the Beach is on the premises of Kuyaba, and is a viable option for vacationers thinking about going to this neighborhood. If you're curious, Negril is one and an eighth miles (a kilometer and a half) to the south-southwest. Are you in the mood for a satisfying meal in a friendly, informal environment? Give some thought to the informal surroundings at this grill. Immerse yourself in some of heavenly and innovative house special cocktails that Kuyaba on the Beach offers. This includes “screaming bananas” and “kuyaba rainbow”- a party-coloured, rum-based concoction. As for meals, you could for starters munch on jerk sausage served with shrimp wrapped in bacon, or a bowl of "real Jamaica"-a choice of red peas (actually beans), cream of pumpkin, or pepper pot. While Caribbean lobster is a standard feature, some exciting pasta dishes like conch-laced spaghetti with a garlic, wine, and tomato sauce or angel-hair pasta studded with cream are also available. Other favourites are crab and pumpkin cakes with papaya mustard, or coconut curried conch with a mango-and-papaya chutney; and the Jamaican rum cake or mango cheese cake in desserts.
