Port Royal, Jamaica
Gloria's Rendezvous Port Royal Reviews
Great place in Port Royal Apr 23, 2011
Glorias is probably the most lavish local place you have in Port Royal if you want to eat fabulous Jamaican food; especially seafood.
The restaurant is in two floors; the downstairs is with table cloths and nicely decorated tables but without a view over the beach. Upstairs it is more basic but with a great view towards the water, Port Royal and the Blue Mountains; both times we where there we choose to sit upstairs because it was also windier and we hadn’t gotten used to the heat at that point of the trip.
The food was fantastic; I had a spicy Honey Shrimp Jerk together with some local side dishes like festival, fried bammy and steamed bammy. The bammy' was not the best I had on the trip but the festival was quite good.
They don’t serve wine in the restaurant but you are allowed to bring your own bottle, otherwise they serve the fabulous Red Stripe beer which was made famous from the Tom Cruise movie Cocktail.
I finished the dinner with a glass of white local rum with their local grape soda; which was all great. Beware that Saturday is a party day with a DJ, huge speakers and all; so it is not a quiet place. If there are many people be prepared wait for the food and enjoy the setting.
