Great value, good food

A great value and very tasty. We weren't in the mood for a long sit down dinner so walked over to this restaurant from our hotel. 2 jerk chickens (half chickens), sides and Red Stripe set us back only about the equivalent of $25 US and we had a very nice server as well.

Marvyn of Marvyn Paradise Tours recommended eating here after we asked to go to Scotchies. He said that Scotchies is good, but since some of the group wanted Conch, Scotchies was not an option. We were a very hungry group after climbing Dunn's River Falls and jumping into the Blue Hole. We ordered Jerk combination, jerk chicken alone, and Jerk... More

Yes the jerk chicken and pork are wonderful and you cannot eat them without some festival on the side; but the star here to me was the jerk conch. It is something you cannot get everywhere and they do it perfectly. I found it a little spicier than the other two (which I loved) and with a deeper, smokier flavour.... More

I am a Pork lover. The Jerk Pork was like an angel kissing my tongue. I loved it!! Jerk is the thing so the other jerk dishes were very good too. The sweet potato fries were delicious!! It's not a place where you want to sit for hours, but it's nice to come in order your food at the cashier,... More

If there was a 3.5 rating i would give it that. Its not a 3 but i dont quite think its a 4. Its a open resturant that was very dimly light at night and they sell jerk meat and fish combos. But its TASTY. So it gets a 4. However calling yourself 'The Jerk Centre' i was expecting something... More

the food, decor and atmosphere were just perfect. We stopped off for lunch and we were surprised at how effecient the service was and how delicious and authentic the food was, all at a reasonable price. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Ocho Rios.

My Friends and I ate at EVITA'S last evening and had a very disappointing experience. It started with the service and continued on with the meal. We sat for over 15 minutes before we were asked what we wanted to drink. Once drinks were ordered another 10 minutes passed before we were served. And by the way, there were only... More

We each had Jamaican Jerk chicken with Fesitval. Festival is like Hush Puppies. The Festival and Chicken were delicious. The place is outdoors and we had goregous weather to... More
