Words can’t possibly describe the beauty of this site. There are many boat tours to get there or you can drive. It is a small cafe nestled into cliffs with panoramic views of the water. There are local cliff jumpers who dive from ridiculously high...More

Food was ok. Service was great. Waiter provided samples. The vegetables were excellent. Desert was good. I thought it was above average not quite excellent. Price is reasonable.

Nothing to great other then the view. Overpriced but your paying for the view. Good to go once and that's it

All the trips arrive at once which is a bit annoying so probably best to take a separate trip. You can jump from the cliffs from different heights, depending on your bravery and swimming ability. you can get drinks and food here too.

Description
OUR STORY BEGINS with the opening of Rick's Cafe by its founder, Richard Hershman, in April 1974. At the time, Negril was a sleepy fishing village with little development. It lacked many modern amenities such as electricity, telephone and hot running water. Our beautiful little cliffside location was originally owned by a local doctor, the son of the first Governor General of independent Jamaica.

RICK’S CAFE was the first public bar and restaurant of its type on the West End Cliffs, offering an alternative to Negril's majestic seven mile beach. From the beginning, Rick's Cafe boasted an unrivaled view of the sunset from its naturally formed cliffs. Over the years, visitors and locals alike have designated Rick's Cafe as Negril's premier gathering spot and our sunsets have become a Jamaican tradition.
