The restaurant was a little dark for my taste and the service was a little slow. The food was ok. Probably would not return.

Service was the worst I’ve experienced. Super slow, even though there were only 2 tables when we were there. The food is way overpriced for the quality. The restaurant itself is super dark, hard to even read the menu. We arrived at 6:30pm. The view is great tho, at least you have the view of the ocean to look at while you wait an eternity for your food.

We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday at Marguerites. We were so pleased with the beautiful waterfront atmoshpere and romantic setting. The service was outstanding - from our drive to and from our resort, to the amazing waiters and manager George! They all went out of their way to make this evening such a speacial time. When we were on our flight home from Montego Bay, I asked my husband what his favourite part was of our trip. He responded .... our dinner at Marguerites!

When we got there for our 9:45 pm Sunday February 2nd dinner reservation, we were told that the place was closed.
No one bothered to call. 👎🏽
We had to go next door for dinner.
That’s not good.

Warm bread served, first time in MB. Attentive service. Food a bit expensive, but one of better meals in Jamaica. Crab cakea did not taste crab and pretty sure one of them was a fish cake? Fish a bit dry. Shrimp in pasta were few bur excellent quality. Dessert key lime pie was very good. Wine selection good but few inexpensive options. Very dark on the terrace. Had to use torchlite to read menu. A few candles would have added to the atmosphere. A few lights on the ocean below would add to the magic. Beautiful location but too dark to see.

I thought there was no way this vacation could get any better . . . And then, this view. This food. This wine. Lobster and black truffle risotto appetizer. Caesar salad mixed tableside with raw eggs, garlic, and anchovies. Filet mignon grilled to medium-rare perfection and a poached lobster tail. Dark chocolate cake with ice cream. Cotes du Rhone red French wine. Simply marvelous. Impeccable service. Might be the best fine dining meal I've had in 2019. #holidaysinjamaica 🥂 🍾 ✈️ ⛱ 🏝 🍹 😎

Marguerites was amazing! We were recommended to go by a family friend who went years back - and years later it seems to be as great as it was then! The food was amazing, service was great and you are right on the water. If you make your reservation at 6 when you open you can catch the end of a great sunset.

Over the years we have always dined at Marguerites, this visit like so many others was flawless. The ambience is always quite and relaxing with the sound of waves against the rocks as you dine. We did notice that the menu had changed a bit and the wine list not as extensive, when we asked our server told us that they were updating both. Nonetheless dinner was YUMMY...

Visited Marguerites during vacation in Jamaica. The food was spectacular and tasted fresh. It was a big group and everyone enjoyed their dish. It was pretty empty when we arrived, so the service was pretty exceptional.

Ate here for my birthday while in Mobay.
Made a 6PM reservation and did not know they dont open until 6. They were a bit behind in setting tables and serving us. The food was the best we had all week, and our waitress was great. She coursed out our meal and everything arrived perfectly.

We had the crab cakes for appetizer and the grouper and snapper for entrees.

We were concerned with being next to Margaritaville but being a Sunday evening it was very relaxed and noise level was well managed.

Awesome place for a couples dinner!

Appetizers were good, entrees just mediocre. What they called "bouillabaisse " contained cut up pieces of grilled fish in a tomato sauce. It might have been ok over pasta but it simply wasn't bouillabaisse. Staff was great, setting was fabulous.

Extremely overpriced. Food quality is poor, had to send back the salmon order. Was looking for a nice restaurant in Montego Bay and thought this may be the place, the photos of the setting make up for everything that it lacks...good food. Gratuity is included no matter the party size.

Was really hoping to enjoy this place based off the reviews and photos... BUT... they say they are for seafood, but if you eat seafood a lot such as my family.. you would be unfortunately disappointed. Scallops were very over done and rubbery, the grouper was over cooked and dry, the sea bass was undercooked, the crab cake was just ok. At the end of the meal we just wanted to leave and we asked for the check a few times. Overall, great view, but the seafood temps on everything was so off, that people were drinking water to push it down or just not eat it at all. I do not like to leave reviews unless necessary, but we left a private chef in a villa to try this place and I wish we had not. After spending that amount of money on wine, apps and entrees for 6 people, we had to have our chef make something when we got home.
