We stayed just above this little spot at Mystic Ridge resort. This place is nice, and except for the taxis parked outside and it being off the main road in Ochi Rios this is a nice place to eat some fine Jamaican Jerk pork, fish, or chicken! I would gibe this place a 10 star if I could. the Jamaican... More

Limited "jerk' menu of good quality food in very informal atmosphere. Great for a lunch break, just outside of busy Ocho Rios, with plenty of easy parking. Four dollar beer, either Red Stripe or Heineken.

Food was great and resonably priced. It as centrally located in Ochie. One thing I did not like/couldn't figue out, there was a sign alluding to the shortage of pork on the island so jerk chicken was not available. This was the only place that I saw such a sign. my family member who actually lives there told me it's... More
