Opened in 1974 on the West End Cliffs in Negril, Ricks Café is one of Jamaica’s most famous tourist attractions and local hot spots. Rick's is a great place to spend the day as it is one of the most popular places to kick back, relax, enjoy a casual dining experience and take in one of the best sunsets in the world. Rick's Cafe has received several awards throughout the years including, the “Best Caribbean Live Reggae Bar” and the “Best Caribbean Sunset” by Caribbean Travel and Life Magazine.
The main attraction at Rick's is the breathtaking cliff jumping, literally! Due to the unique location of the cafe, visitors can take a jump into the stunning sea from heights as little as 5 ft up to 30 ft. Only one part of the perfect day out for those seeking a little adventure in Jamaica. Even if you don’t want to take the leap, sit and be entertained by the local divers who dive from the highest spot, twisting and turning through the air before splashing cleanly into the water below.
Apart from the spectacular cliff diving, the cafe features a bar, restaurant, infinity pool, a gift shop, lounge deck, and amazing views of the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Ricks Café also offers live music shows that feature reggae bands and more, taking the day’s enjoyment into the night as a great party atmosphere takes over, especially on weekends. Many tour companies include Rick’s Café on their ‘must visit’ spots in Negril.
The restaurant at Rick’s Cafe offers an extensive menu to accommodate any taste, including steak, pasta, seafood and chicken. A great culinary experience whether you’re a large group or a couple looking for a meal and a night out together. The Cafe opens at noon every day and it is a great place to spend an afternoon or to hang out in the evenings.
