The Best Seafood In Ocho Rios Is @ Fishermen’s Beach

Lobster, roast fish, bammy, festival…

For the best seafood you can find in Ochi, try Dave’s Lobster Shack at Fishermen’s Beach- pretty much all the lobster you can eat and then some… We paired the lobster with some grilled Grouper fillets and a healthy (if such a word can be used in this context) serving of festival and bammy. “Yum” is possibly the only word that adequately describes our feast.

Fishermen’s Beach is the first right turn after Island Village when you’re leaving Ochi- you pass the entrance to Columbus Heights and then immediately look out for the entrance. In reality, there is a bit of beach (not for bathing), and a ramshackle collection of buildings and huts, and so much food goodness you’ll wish you’d brought a spare stomach…

    Had been in Ochi for a few days wondering where we were going to get the best seafood. Stumbled on this blog and was automatically sold on going to Dave’s.

    Result = The best seafood restaurant this side of my mums kitchen.

    No need to spend $100 + when there are spots like Daves Lobster Shack!

    Thanks for the heads up

    Tropical Vibes Seafood Bar and Restaurant -the first upstairs and downstairs building on your left on entering Fisherman’s Beach is the best seafood restaurant on the north coast -not only in ocho rios.
