Real Jamaican food

I love the outside restaurant atmosphere. Very laid back. The girls behind the counters need to be more friendlier to female patrons. They cheese a lot to the male customers!!

Stopped in to this restaurant on the way back from a swim at Blue Hole. LOVED IT! Be careful with the green sauce though. It's hot.

Local eatery, open air casual dining. Jerk Pork is better the chicken. Reasonable price and a local favorite.

We went twice, on two consecutive days towards the end of our vacation. Authentic Jamaican food in an authentic setting, friendly, and wonderful!

The best jerk chicken in ochi. A visit is made each time we visit jamacia. it is not a posh restaurant but provides great food and the soup served up is excellent. the family look forward to this visit as they get to know the staff. It is just a short taxi ride form the hotel.

Had to get Scotchies when I was in Mo Bay. I introduced some Americans to Jerk and roast breadfruit and they were just blown away. Last time I had authentic Jerk was in 1997 and boy it is still good. Had everything they had for sale. My wife also had authentic Jerk for the first time and loved it.

Been to this place on a few occasions. Positives great location in terms of accessibility, they stick to the original methods of jerking, original pepper sauce Negatives Can improve on customer service, the food is ok, just not the best in Montego Bay. Other Notes This restaurant scores high on popularity mainly. Average prices,outdoor styled seating.

Very good, Had the half Jerk Chicken with small rice and beans , Cost was reasonable, We arrived at Midday and it didn't take long for the place to become very busy. It is a popular place.

Pork, chicken and fish were amazing. We sat in a nice shady spot. Drinks were great. Service was average, it was really busy. Pork was my favorite, it had a nice smoky flavor with a little kick. Must try. If I'm back in Montego Bay, will definitely go back.

Food was good. Better seating then The Pork Pit. I actually liked the Pork Pit food better. Don't get me wrong the food here is good. Loved the view. This is a must try when visiting and I will go back every visit!
