Nice Jerk lunch.

We had a nice lunch after our excursion to the Blue Hole in Ocho Rios. Our guide took us here for lunch. The food was a little pricey for the small portions, but very tasty. We had chicken, ribs, fried rice, and of course RedStripe. The place was full of locals and busy so it took a little while... read more

The menu prices are different from the prices on your final bill. This was a featured food destination on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives-Guy Fieri. Enjoyed the adventure.

Our travel guide brought us to this restaurant on our day out in Ocho Rios and we loved it. The Jerk chicken was great, plentiful and reasonable. The beer was cold and the service was great. Glad we got to experience an authentic Jamaican restaurant.

I was cleaning out one of my travel bags and found a receipt (from April 2014) for this place! On this day, I told our tour guide that I wanted some jerk chicken. I don't know if he drove to this restaurant to get me some jerk chicken or if he made a few phone calls and had someone bring... More

This was a fantastic way to relax in the middle of our day of tours for lunch. I had the special Curry Goat and 1/4 jerk Chicken with Juneplum Tru Juice. All were friendly and I paid with JMD!! That was my favorite part. :)

I highly recommend this place as a part of our lunch stop. I always go for two things mainly, the jerk chicken wrap with lettuce tomato and cheese and the fish and sweet potato chips. I am not a pork lover but there BBQ ribs are good. I enjoy the menu because they offer other cuisine besides jerk chicken or... More

We went there early, so it wasn't crowded. The food was good, but be careful that you are aware of the conversion rate. They charged us double what they should have charged us. We paid $12 for a $6 meal.
