What many of us do is hop onto google and do a quick search, check out the restaurants' websites, their ratings and reviews and make a decision based on that.

There are no Michelin-starred restaurants in Jamaica, a shocker I know. But, weโ€™ve compiled a list of the highest-reviewed restaurants on the island.

So if you are in Jamaica and are looking to go out and enjoy a new restaurant but canโ€™t seem to choose, here are the top 10 rated restaurants in Jamaica according to google.

For more accuracy, I carefully selected those restaurants with a minimum of 2.5k reviews and no less than 4 stars. Unsurprisingly, many of the islandโ€™s favourites made the list.

1. Rick's Cafรฉ

7.3k reviews | 4.4 stars

The now world-renowned restaurant was the first establishment of its kind on the West End Cliffs, providing a different option from Negril's magnificent seven-mile beach.

Due to its naturally occurring cliffs, Rick's Cafe has always boasted an unrivalled view of the sunset. Over time, Rick's Cafe has established itself as Negril's premier gathering place, and watching the sunset there has become a Jamaican custom. For those who dare, cliff jumping is also the main attraction.
