Look if you are on the South coast GO to Strikie T's we ate here everynite we were in Billys Bay and thot about cabbing it back there from further down the coast. Everything made FRESH
absolutely amazing fare, a dancing Chef what more do you want and at a very reasonable price with ICE COLD BEER (colder than Sandals) PLease go, please please go, it should be on your bucket list its that good. No fear walking up and down the road, pleasant walking, friendly locals, totally safe. bring Cash and tip well. Some of the best meals I have ever eaten. You will not be disappointed, even the vegetarian meals were amazing!!!! The Lobster oh my!!!

Chris' wife picked us up at Jake's and delivered us to Strikie Ts. He cooked a marvelous meal for us then drove us back himself, still wearing his chef's hat. Bravo! Here is a short video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PMnvxD2MSE

Such a simple recipe for a successful operation: equal parts delicious food, endearing chef and excellent value.
My husband would have the fish or lobster meal, I would get a specially prepared vegetarian meal and we would have a couple of beers. The bill would be about $18 USD! While we love Jakes and Jack Spratt too, the food at Strikies is just as tasty and so inexpensive we ate there 3 times over the five nights we were in Treasure Beach. Plus you get to enjoy watching the chef dance to Lucky Dube, Beres Hammond and other classic reggae concerts he puts on a small tv to entertain his guests :)

We were in Treasure Beach for several weeks and ate at Strikie T's twice. (It's easy to find--almost across the street from Rainbow Tree Villa.) The proprietor, Chris, is a very experienced cook and a very friendly guy. On top of that, he provides "entertainment" by actually dancing in the kitchen as he prepares your food. Both the food and presentation were excellent, and the prices were more than fair. During the two different meals, we had coconut shrimp, lobster, jerk chicken pasta, and freshly caught snapper. Each meal came with an ample amount of vegetables; I will note these were cooked perfectly as opposed to being overly cooked as seems to be the Jamaican style. We each had two drinks with dinner, usually rum punch or a Red Stripe. The meals averaged $13 (US) each with the two drinks plus a tip. Chris leaves Treasure Beach for several months from about mid-May to mid-October, and I am not sure if the place is open during that time. Another note: we heard but did do not know that his fish and vegetables are better than his chicken dishes.

Well this was a highlight of our Jamaican adventure. Watching Chris dancing around his small kitchen, whipping up fantastic lobster or jerk chicken was great fun. We ate there three nights - loved every meal.
