My cousin saw advert on TV about the place, & sometimes you never can tell if it's good as the advert said. So off we went to Ochi. Pleasant drive to restaurant & we arrived just in time as we ordered our food as the local tour buses descended from Dunns River & the local attractions to the restaurant to... More

yes, everybody has to go to Scothies - or that's what you're told. It is un-comparable to anywhere else I know but you have to be seen there - and it is worth going!

The reviews are all right on the money, Scotchies is well worth the visit. The four of us got a little bit of everything for dinner and everything was a winner. The jerk chicken is unreal, the jerk pork was just as good. The sausages were still good, but not compared to the chicken and pork though. If you have... More

Love their festivals but the chicken was a little dry to me. I would prefer it more if they had different sauces to go on it. It wasn't bad but it wasn't the greatest either

Great food, the jerk was authentic (duh) but very delicious. I enjoyed myself here. I had the Jerk chicken but because I was with a group I had to taste a lot of other dishes. Very good. Stopped here on a tour.

This stop was inpromptu, but quite refreshing. The culture was alive and well here. I enjoyed watching the enormous grilling in progress and the hut like seating.

One of our goals when visiting Jamaica was to get real jerk pork and chicken and Scotchies more than delivered. We came on the recommendation of our cab driver Mark (Yay, Mark!) and were treated to an all out island experience complete with a mongoose next to our table and lots of iguanas. We sampled the sausage (spicy and good... More

They cook it all outdoors over a wood pit with a sheet metal cover. It's amazing to view and they stay busy. The line was a bit long when we arrived. They take cards, US dollars and Jamaica dollars. Everyday there's a special - take advantage of that! The rice and peas, festival, steamed veggies, jerk chicken, pork, fish, etc.... More
