Pairing stunning views with first-class cuisine, The Cliffs intimate al fresco dining terrace is the go-to gathering spot for good clean food for Breakfast, Lunch and also delicious tropical drinks. Feel like staying in for Dinner? Get all the goodness delivered to your door.

Breakfast is served from 7:30 at the restaurant by the pool, overlooking the cliffs, or get it delivered to your room and eat on your balcony. We recommend you try the traditional Jamaican breakfast of Ackee and Saltfish and the very popular Banana Pancakes.

Lunch is also available in your room or at the poolside, cliff-top restaurant. Delight in Jamaican specialities prepared from scratch by the very friendly and highly skilled chef. Jerk Chicken Pasta and Curried Shrimp Crepes are just a couple of dishes greatly enjoyed by the happy guests. Not to be missed, the island's assortment of tropical fruit such as ackee, breadfruit, june plum and soursop is as mouthwatering as it is unique to the island.

The restaurant closes at 7pm but you can still order dinner to be delivered to your room or suite or perhaps engage the services of the private chef to come and cook for you.

All rooms have a full kitchen and there are supermarkets in the West End so the option is always there for you to cook and eat in your room whenever you like. The West End of Negril is also home to some of the best food on the island. Ask at the hotel for recommendations of where to dine. The restaurants serve a wide-range of different cuisines and at varying prices.
