Jungle Lobster House - Under the Old White River Bridge

by Angelina Harris
(Kenosha, WI)

Contest Entry #33 - Jungle Lobster House




On Highway A3, near Cutlass Bay in Ocho Rios, this amazing little indoor/outdoor wooden restaurant UNDER a bridge on the White River is simply oozing atmosphere!

It is more than an outstanding eatery, it is a MUST-GO for any non-touristy visitor to Jamaica. Not only is it a charming, mostly-outdoor restaurant in a simple frame built UNDER a bridge on the White River, but it is also filled with Rastafarian culture, pictures, posters, people and symbols everywhere.

There are creative, decorative touches in every crevice with an ambient background of reggae music spilling out of a major speaker system, all controlled from a sound system in its own tree-fort room above this open-air restaurant(The sound system is one of the few enclosed rooms of the compound.

This place is actually completely owned and operated by some really friendly, super mellow Rastafarians, with a truly masterful, artistic chef utilizing the freshest ingredients available anywhere.

It is a truly authentic Jamaican experience WAY off the beaten path figuratively, hidden in plain sight logistically. It is so truly removed from any hint of commercialism despite it's close proximity (within walking distance) to the widely known all-inclusive hotels Shaw Park Beach Hotel & Spa and Couples San Souci.

Go for the lush, riverside ambiance and the raw roots experience.....return again and again for the highly perfected, mouth-watering nouvelle cuisine as an added bonus! Ask for Javies.

Childhood memories... wow!
by: Clover

Just found a business card for this place, unearthing old childhood memories of hanging out with Javies when I was between 3 & 7. Swimming in he river, lobsters everywhere and all over the kitchen. Being made to sit on the kitchen surface, squealing. I wanted to know if the Lobster Kitchen was still there. I'm happy to hear that it is! :D
