This place is a must for any traveler to Ocho Rios! The food is great and so is the ambience - open air, a little rustic, clean and nice. The food is great and reasonably priced. The sweet potato fries is a must - yummy!

I decided to give the jerk center another try and once again was disappointed. We all ordered jerk pork and it was terrible. Prices have gone up (which is understandable considering the state of the economy) but portion sizes also seem smaller now. The bar service was a joke. The only nice thing about our trip here was the atmosphere... More

MY friend and i went to Ochi Rios for may 2014 with a another who is not Jamaican , we decided to let him have some real Jamaican jerk but i was disappointed with the pork that we got,but the pork fried rice was the bomb, the ribs was something to talk about. I would definitely recommend this place.

I was here in March and ordered the jerk pork. It was mostly fat, really, really gross. Go to Scothies if you want good jerk, my friend had the ribs and he loved them but I wouldn't recommend this jerk restaurant. The atmosphere was really nice, we sat by a stream and cooled down.

I enjoy the jerk chicken here the service was fast and there is a lot of seats both inside and outside. The bar area is nice there is also a wide selection of beverages to choose from. The location is great and the cost of the meal was very reasonable.

Let's be clear about the location. I am talking about the jerk center on the left hand side as you come off the road from Fern Gully. It is opposite Turtle park. I have been eating there for many years with varied but mostly acceptable experiences. After a hiatus of about a year my experience on April 23 2014 was... More

I have visited this place on few occasions and realized that customer service is not their strength however when i went on April 24,2014 i realized they were at their worse. I waited for my food over an hour and even though they saw me standing and waiting i was totally ignored. I occasionally stop a server to find out... More

On a trip to J'ca where we stayed for only one day in Ocho Rios, we had lunch at this place. This place made me wish we were spending the rest of our vacation there! The absolute best jerk I've had while on Jamaica. Also the hot sauce is a must. Service is quick; food here is more affordable than... More
