This is now closed and shows no signs of opening again. If you stop and look through the right hand gate you can still see the falls. Let's hope that someone buys the place and does a lot of work on it

Owners have locked down this place. It use to be a very lovely restaurant and bar with relaxing backdrop of the falls. However this place is no longer operational so be careful of "tour guides" and taxi operators taking you here.

Since we decided not to go to Dunns River Falls and deal with four thousand people but still wanted to see some falls our driver took us here. The place is a bit run down and we paid $2.00 each to come on the property and see the waterfalls. The falls were pretty but that's the only thing here now.... More

this is an experience no one who visits Ocho Rios should miss. please call ahead to be sure there is space for your group if there are more than two. The menu is typical jamaican food. but it's the Falls that are the real attraction. eating right in the waterfalls was so beautiful. take your camera and get ready for... More

First the food went bad and what should have been a landmark restaurant in Ocho Rios slowly slid downhill in quality. The restaurant is currently closed and said to be under refurbishing. Is slated to open under new management.......

I think this is closed, maybe this site should have a 'status'. What more can I say if the place is closed.

My husband and I had our destination wedding at this Garden Fall. Thanks to Trudi McDonald and her team for assisting me with planning and organizing and also recommending Nikki Parsons, wedding planner for Dream Weddings Jamaica, who made my day enchanting and beautiful with Caribbean/Ocean Blue decorations. Guests lodged at Sunset Jamaica Grande Resort.

Our tour guide, Rusty, stopped by here when we asked to see some gardens. The place is closed, but a caretaker took us through the gardens and gave us a history of the former plantation and the many plants and their uses.

The Ruins Restaurant has been closed since last year. Too bad as during the day a lot of tour buses would stop there and the tourist would enjoy looking at the falls and the beautiful big Koi fish swimming in the ponds around the dining area. A Jamaican lunch buffet was set up daily. In the evening the dinner Menu... More

Atmosphere is amazing as the waterfall cascades down into the outdoor dining area. You find yourself in a lush garden surrounded by a rainforest filled with tropical plants. This is a must have experience. The food and the staff are always excellent. You'll also most likely be entertained by local musicians as you dine. The buffet is excellent and well... More
