    For those of you not doing AI, or doing AI but having an off-site welcome/rehearsal dinner, where are having it or what places are you considering in Negril?

    We'll be getting married on the cliffs so I'm thinking we should take our guests down to 7-mile beach area. We'll likely have 40 people. Any thoughts? suggestions? I've scoured the forums and the closest I've gotten in terms of suggestions are Norma's (Seasplash) and Xtabi? with Rick's Cafe being a definition No-No (too touristy).

    What about something fun fun, like a Booze Cruise or Catamaran Tour. Know anything about these types of activities in Negril?

      Try looking into the Rockhouse...I hear the food is yummie and the resturant is open to the public (you don't need to be a guest of the hotel to dine there).

        I'm trying to do the welcome dinner at the beach and the rehearsal dinner on the cliffs, and then our wedding will also be on the cliffs. I can tell you right now that Rockhouse won't let you have a rehearsal dinenr there even if you don't ask to close down the restaurant. My MIL has really pushed them for us and the most they would give us is if we had it no later than 5pm! Instead they are really pushing their new, but much more casual, restaurant PushCart. I can also tell you from a previous trip that Norma's restaurant was really yummy!

            Skip Xtabi. I have stayed there, and the food is nothing to write home about. Not bad, just meh. It does have a wonderful view, but it is on the cliffs, not the beach.

              Oh yeah, LTU Pub is good too with a beautiful view- but they're on the cliffs next door to Rick's.

                I am getting married at MDC soon and also have 40 guests. We are doing the rehearsal dinner at Ivan's. They have been great about communicating by email. It's really casual, outdoors with great views and has GREAT food reviews!! Check them out on trip advisor.

                  Finally someone who has been to the Pushcart! Was it really casual? Does it have a cool feel like Rockhouse? How's the view? Anything else you can share about it for a rehearsal dinner spot? Thanks!

                    Yes, it is a casual place with the same Rockhouse feel. The view is awesome, overlooking the sea, the food is soooo good, and they had a live band when we were there. I'm going to try to attach a couple of pics (hope they show up)...

                      I love Rockhouse their food is phenomenal. I haven't been to PushCart but if its anything like the other restaurant it will be yummy and Rockhouses' service is top notch!
