The food was good. I had a dream fish and it was well seasoned and done to perfection. The atmosphere here is also very good and you feel very safe even though it's kinda open. Will go here again for sure.

This place offered a great selection of food at very good prices. We were a large group but everything came out really fast. It tasted great too. This had a lovely social environment and we would definitely go back

My husband and I were trying to eat as much jerk chicken as possible in Jamaica to get a good idea of the range in flavor. This place was really good. It was on par with Scotchie's in my opinion, price was around the same as well. You could go around the side to the back to watch the chicken... More

Beautiful grounds! Brian was a fantastic guide. So knowledgeable and proud of his Jamaican heritage! Wear a hat and bring some bug spray. At the end you get a sampling of local cuisine.

My wife and I spent a week at a resort in Ocho Rios with some friends. We took a taxi to the city one day for shopping and asked the driver to stop at a place we could get some jerk chicken. This was the real deal. I ordered a 1/4 chicken and I wish I would of gotten a... More

We were so happy that our tour guide Juliet and bus driver made a special trip for us to the jerk center! Off the cruise ship tourist track which is what we love, supporting the local businesses where the locals actually go! We ordered the jerk chicken and pork and also got a side of fried rice. The meat was... More

Asked for 1/4 pound Jerk Pork takeout and the below is what I received for my dinero...drumroll please....PURE FAT! To me, I was robbed by the establishment. Who on this planet would want to spend hard earned money on fat you have to toss to a nearby stray cat or dog? No excuse except they robbed us. Must be another... More
