After waiting for a table at the bar, we got a birds eye view of staff working very efficiently & politely, yet being verbally berated & talked down to while they had everything running smoothly by the owner. Can't believe they can keep any help. Hope they pay them well, but sure they don't stay long. Would have given a... More

Very difficult to get a reservation. It is because the food is excellent. We were seated promptly for our 6:30 reservation. The owner actually took our order, and politely answered questions we had about the menu items. My wife has the filet mignon which was cooked exactly the way she ordered it. My rack of lamb was superb. The deserts... More

We ate at Jacala at the suggestion of the captain of our snorkeling trip. The food was amazing. My husband had the lobster sandwich and the day's special salad of tomatoes and basil with salt and olive oil (DELICIOUS) I had the Spanish Lobster Tortilla, and our snorkeling captain had the grilled watermelon salad with goat cheese. All of these... More

Truly worth the visit and the price. I've no idea what the others are talking about. Owner was pleasant and staff was TOP notch. Our hotel restaurant was fabulous, so to go offsite, we wanted really great food--and Jacala delivered in spades. I'd rate it among the best restaurants worldwide I have ever been to-- and we are picky foodies.... More

We love Jacula. Jacques, Alain and their wonderful staff always greet us warmly. The food is excellent, with always a couple of specials to tempt our palates. Their crayfish are the best on the island. No rush, stay as long as you wish. And who would want to leave such a setting on magnificent Meads Bay. Jacques is a terrific... More

We went here for lunch so that we could use the beach chairs. Best decision ever! We had a couple of drinks on the beach before lunch. Our server was super friendly and fun! Goes by the nickname Charms. She was amazing! Drinks were delivered to us on the beach. They didn't skimp on the Rum and there was lots... More

Two week wait for dinner so make reservations in advance. We had lunch at Jacala and it was the best meal we had during our three day stay. Flavor we great. On the beach. Wine was good. Locals and frequent visitors to the island know about this place

I couldn't agree more than with NY10. Although the food was delicious and serve staff, very good, the whole experience was spoilt by the obnoxious owner. Tip; If you going to manage a restaurant then be polite and approachable to all your patrons. Patronising, rude and dismissive behaviour is not the best way to win plaudits. Luckily the staff do...

Lobster smothered in mayo plus bacon and cheese on wheat is ok but all they need is a plain lobster Role sandwich without all the extra smothering. A big salad would be a nice menu item. Pretty beach location. Maybe I expected too much per all the hype.
