We always like to stop at Rick's to watch the cliff divers. Food and drinks are expensive like any tourist traps. We found they sold a ice bucket full of 5-6 Red Stripes which wasn't badly priced. Service can be hit or miss as this...More

Rick's cafe is a must go to while in Jamaica, not because the sunset is better than anywhere else or the food or drink but it is part of Negril! Always a fun time with live music, cold drinks and a great view! Best time...More

The jumping from the cliff did not look as scary as I thought it would be. I did not jump and play and the gorgeous water, but I will definitely be sure to when I return. Gorgeous sunset to see as well!

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.
