We had the chicken jerk and my wife could not get enough of the sauce. The smoothie was also great! Quick service, friendly people!

Its hard to know where to eat in Negril but Sharks in a great find. Shark and his wife Juliette prepare all the food. Everything is always fresh and spicy. I always get the goat stew and my wife gets fried fish. Both are spicy,

This small and unassuming little restaurant across from Tensing Pen serves GREAT FOOD. Delicious Oxtail and curried chicken. Our young waiter Jazim ( I'm not sure I spelled it correctly ) was charming and informative regarding the ins and outs of local life. It's worth crossing the street for some authentic food and people.

The cook and owner at this location make you feel warm and welcome! Jerk chicken, shrimp and fish were all very good. Portion size was plenty for two at a reasonable price. Must give it a try!

You have to seek out the local fare. We had eaten twice next-door at Ahh Bee's which was okay. I had seen Sharks but wasn't sure what to make of it. But after asking one of the security guard's across the street where we were staying about it we decided to give it a try. Food was excellent, and we... More

This is a small "hole in the wall" beside Ahh Bee's. It has good local flavor, both in the food and the clientele. Inexpensive and tasty.

We'd eaten at Shark's before and found it to be a typical -- and typically reliable -- food shack, with excellent juices. We returned this trip, because the neighboring restaurant -- AhhhBee's -- wasn't open at the time. And we got just what we expected: good fresh food prepared well and served well. In many places, that would earn higher... More
