The prior review claiming Canoe's coffee the best was spot on. They use Blue Mountain coffee and deliver it in a french press pot. Our favorite breakfast spot. On a little sand beach about a quarter mile up One Love Drive from the town center. Dinner here was marvelous too.

Been here three times in the past two weeks. The first was with my whole family. We love it. The adults can have 2-4-1 dirty bananas while my grandson runs on the beach. Priceled! Lots of choice on the menu and reasonably priced. I've gone on my own twice for breakfast. Great food prepared fresh. And The Best Coffee In... More

I easily drank two rum punches as it was happy hour, and was a good deal at that. The service was good and friendly, and since I was the only customer in the place. It was a little before five, and it took them nearly an hour to make my burger. Could explain why it was overcooked and dry. The... More

Been here several times over the past few years, this might be the last time... it's way overpriced and lackluster service at best. We stopped in for breakfast yesterday before our day trip to YS Falls - in the two hours it took us to drive to the falls, one of my son's and I both appear to have had... More

On our destination walk to nowhere in particular, my husband and I stumbled up on this great little ocean front, small beach restaurant. We order wings and cold beer, but the restaurant had full dinner menu. Several people ordered red snapper. Prices were good. Service was excellent. Restaurant is quiet and cozy, but yet still private. The view is breathtaking... More

Jamaicans don't eat a western breakfast as a rule. Finding things like coffee and bacon are not so easy. Canoe bar is an assuming beachfront little bar/restaurant that really knows their food. By far the best breakfast in Negril for the money.

We ate here a few times for breakfast, it was very good and large portions. We looved the Blue Mountain French pressed coffee! Very good! It is a cute little place on a little beach next to the sea with great views and atmosphere. The waitress we had the two times we were there was very sweet and nice. We... More

Area with a couple of couches to hang out on, as well as some tables on the deck as well. Well worth the visit , perfect for lunch and afternoon... More

2 adults and 2 kids, the only clients at the restaurant, we had to wait 1 hour and half for the food!!! The tuna was extremely overcooked, decent pasta but overcooked as well! The view was the only nice thing...
