The service was good, although we had to wait a little while on our table as the restaurant was very busy. We were provided with a bar table and chairs and ordered drinks while waiting. Also ordered our meals while waiting and so did not have to wait long for our meals after we were seated. Our server Rita, was... More

Service not bad but it's my third time dining there and the price has gotten more ridiculous. The Pasta was great, lobster n chicken alfredo. The ribs tasted stale and wasn't worth the money. The pasta was served very hot and it was excellent. I went with my friend and she wasn't pleased with the BBQ Ribs. The setting is... More

I love coming to South Avenue Grill (formerly Gauchos). The ambiance is perfect for date night, the food is great and the serving are even better. I'm guaranteed to go home with leftovers :) It gets pretty crowded on the weekends and special events (valentines day, mother's day etc). There are times when there is a long line of customers...

Absolutely fantastic food in an intimate, easy going atmosphere. It's the kind of place you'll want to go again and again. Courteous staff too. Do try the Fish in Coconut Sauce...oh just pure yum!

As a Jamaican resident for the past six years, I have sampled most of the restaurants in Kingston but the South Avenue Grill is the best of the lot for my money. My wife and I have just returned from a family visit there and we all agreed that the food was fantastic, service first class and it was reasonably... More

I love this place and the quality is over the average in Jamaica. Food is really good: pastas are incredibly good, very good and big portion (will you be able to finish it? Most of people bring the rest home!): Chicken and Shrimp Alfredo is one of their signature dish and it's worth to try at least once. I love... More

My partner and I have always heard about this oasis in the city, she decided to throw me a surprise birthday party there. The place was a bit of a let down the time we went there; the pool was empty from what seems to be renovation work being done to it. I don't know what was off that particular... More
