Awesome place!

The food is exquisitely amazing, the best jerk chicken I've ever had. It was moist and the spiciness was just right, plus I was surprised at the size of the festivals. They get two giant thumbs up

I definitely enjoyed the Jerk chicken and Jerk pork. The eatery is an outdoor BBQ joint. I got there when it was dark and it seemed a bit difficult to find at first, but I was driving on the left, which is not normal for me, and didn't focus on the signage.

I was told Scotchies had the best jerk chicken and that we should also get some bammy (didn't know what bammy was, but I was game). We were coming back from our Kingston tour and asked the tour folks if we would stop here. The food is awesome! Plus you can see as the food is cooking how they do... More

The unmistakable aroma of authentic jerk seasoning hits you as you step from the car park into the relaxed outdoor setting of Scotchies Tree in New Kingston. The wood framed thatched gazebos, sensibly arranged and brushed by garden plants, provide a rustic charm and enough privacy to enjoy the experience. The food is the real thing. Cooked just right.

The Chicken was to die for, but the pork was a little dry, I love the decor and design that caught my eye for quite a while .Seem like a nice venue for family and friends hangout, but was hoping for some jazz or RB music in the background.

If you're a fan of Jamainan Jerk then this is definitely a place to stop. They serve tender pork that's akways well done and very delicious. Their jerk chicken is to die for not to mention the different sausages. This is a place you must stop when visiting Jamaica.

Scotchies food is one of the best in Kingston. Their jerk chicken is delicious especially when you add the sauce. The ambiance is nice and love the fact that you can sit in your own private area with your friends. I've been there more than once and I must say they never disappoint.

Great local vibe with tasty, locally inspired fare in a casual setting. The service can be slow, so go with a true Jamaican spirit: chilled with no stress, ready to enjoy the food.
