Beaches Negril Dining

No matter which resort or destination you go, one of the first questions that people ask is, “How’s the food?”. The dining available at any resort is key, am I right? It’s one of the constants that people looks for when booking their vacation. 

When my daughter and I returned from Beaches Negril, I spent a lot of time talking ‘food’ with family and friends, and discussing in emails and messages from readers. It’s about time I dished {pun intended}. 

You have so many choices when it comes to restaurants and places to stop and grab a bite at Beaches Negril. Yet, the top thing you need to know is that I experienced no crowds, no rush to get food before it runs low and no packed tiny area with a suffocating mix of smells that some buffets provide. 

In no particular order, here are the delightful options for Beaches Negril dining:


The Mill


This ‘main’ large restaurant at Beaches Negril is buffet-style and is located by the main pool, and close to the lobby. You’ll find The Mill open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the dress is resort casual.

This restaurant is open-air with beautiful relaxing views. Being central to the resort, it’s a go-to no matter where you are. The choices for food are so diverse, with nightly themes as well.

For breakfast you can get the usual fruits, cereals, eggs and meats and an omelet bar. Dinner is always different, yet my favourite was seafood night.

 Each dish they served was very good and fresh. The choices are great at The Mill and I believe anyone, with any taste, would find something they love here.

There’s plenty of seating and … {drumroll} … is complete with little picnic tables for the kids. A special place, if they wish to dine here, complete with colouring books and activities.

There is a separate kids buffet at The Mill, always always checked out both and usually picked a little from each. The kids buffet during the evening is usually pizza, chicken fingers, pasta and the likes.

I seen many adults eyeing the kids buffet with consideration, yet seemingly unsure whether they could sample. Go ahead, the pizza is for the kids AND the kids at heart!


For Tex Mex cuisine, look to Arizona’s, located right next to the Pirates Water Park area in The Piazza area of the resort. This is a sit down restaurant, yet resort casual. So, if you want a break from the sun and the kids need some time to unwind, this is the place to go.

While they focus on nachos, quesadillas and Tex Mex cuisine, they also have the usual jerk chicken, hot dogs and hamburgers as well. Usually open for just lunch and dinner, Arizona’s is one place where you’ll find the Sesame Street Character Breakfast. Sometimes you can grab a quick breakfast at Arizona’s, yet check the daily schedule to make sure before you go. 


Sweeties Ice Cream Counter

Located in The Piazza and beside Arizona’s {closer to the Pirates Water Park area} is Sweeties Ice Cream Counter. This is the place where my daughter, and many other children, gravitated often.

 This self serve snack bar is open from 10am-5pm daily and has the best soft serve as well as fresh baked cookies and cupcakes. 


BBQ Park

BBQ Park is a walk-up dining option is so perfect for lazy days at the pool.

You don’t need to change clothing, just order your food and take it to go {to your room} or have a seat at the tables outside.

The BBQ Park is also conveniently located by the Pirates Water Park area and very close to the beach.

Open daily until 3am, this is the place to get that mouth-watering jerk chicken that I love so much. My daughter was partial to their chicken fingers and fries. Yet, they also have wraps, burgers and more. 


4 important words guys: pizza on the beach!

Beach and Negril

At Dinos you can sit and eat there or take out. Dinos is open from 12-6pm, so if you think you want a late pizza dinner in the room or with friends, make sure to order before it closes. Many people did this and utilized their fridge and microwave in-room. As well, there’s nothing like cold pizza, right?

Does that sound like too much work on vacation? Trust me, it’s worth it! When at Beaches Negril, you just have to try Dinos pizza, it’s delicious!! These handtossed pizzas made in a woodstone oven are up there among the best pizza I’ve ever had.

Fresh with each order, Dinos has quite the extensive pizza list, 14 signature and 3 dessert pizzas! The fresh toppings and crust are amazing!

The Venetian

My daughter and I didn’t have a chance to eat at The Venetian, featuring Italian food. I did talk to some people that went and loved every bit of their meal as well as the ambiance.

Located upstairs between The Mill and the entertainment area, reservations are required for this restaurant and dress is resort evening attire.


Reservations are required for Kimonos, but it’s one dining experience that you won’t want to miss.

Our private chef at Kimonos was as friendly as he was entertaining, even complete with song. Adults and kids alike will be all smiles and you’ll leave satisfied from the theatrics and the delicious stir fry food served.

Stewfish is another gem that is located right on the beach! Open for most dinners, they serve authentic Caribbean cuisine with a high focus on Seafood.

This is the place where you can get your Jerk Chicken fix and gaze upon the beautiful sights of 7 Mile Beach. 

 Cafe de Paris

What a piece of heaven this place is, I praise Beaches Negril for this new addition to their resort! Cafe de Paris is a Parisian style patisserie that is open daily from 6:30am – 10:30 pm and is located by the main pool.

Some of my favourites times and memories was enjoying a cappuccino while taking in the Caribbean morning, a piece of quiet paradise to start my day. Then, once the sun set and the end of the day drew near, I’d get a latte and head outside and again let the soothing evening take hold. Heaven!

Cafe de Paris serves pastries, crepes, coffees and dessert delights – all whipped up by the resident pastry chef at Beaches Negril. One step in the door and you really feel like you are in Paris, the rich scents of pastries and coffees are exhilarating!  


Special Events


In addition, there’s other special events at Beaches Negril to grab incredible food and snack. We attended a chocolate buffet after sundown, which consisted of tables full of chocolate treats that were like little masterpieces.

Also not to be missed is a beach party with food, live music and more. We also can’t forget the Character Breakfasts, your chance to dine and visit with all your favourite Sesame Street friends at Beaches Negril.
