Juniper on the Water offers valet parking and has both indoor and outdoor dining, but I can’t see why you would pass up the stellar views by the water to dine indoors.
They specialise in Seafood and offer happy hour daily, dinner nightly and weekend brunch.
Our server was a bit quick on taking away the menus each time, but other than that, she was polite and quite attentive.
Serving sizes were more than generous, as some mains could be shared for two. The seafood was fresh and the dishes were flavourful. We all enjoyed our appetizers and main courses, except for the Seared Red Snapper Fillet. Jamaicans tend to prefer Saltwater fish versus Freshwater fish and appreciate a bit more seasoning.
Red Snapper Filet (USD $28) – Roasted cherry tomatoes, charred cipollini onions, capers in a saffron broth.
Ceviche Mixto (USD $16) – Shrimp, Cod Fish, Octopus, leche de tigre, shaved red onions, micro cilantro, aji amarillo dressing.
