Our Yardie tour guide Nakan took us here and it was delish! The sauce in the yellow bottle is the best! Too bad they dont sell it so make sure to eat it up!

Food was ok but the portions were not that great. Location is good and the service was ok. If you are downtown this is fine.

The food was so good here that we ate here almost every day during our recent stay at Mystic Ridge Resort, which is a short walk away. If you are in Ocho Rios, you have to stop by and have some jerk!

Our wonderful driver recommended this little gem. The Jerk Centre (note the British spelling) served excellent food in a superb Jamaican atmosphere.

There are plenty of better, less touristy places to eat but this will do. The food was tasty, the facility was clean and the service was fast.

This is my second time visiting this restaurant. No greeting upon arrival. You have to stand/walk around looking confused before someone tells you that you must order at a cashier desk, then sit anywhere and then a waitress will collect your receipt to place your order with the cook. The cashier doesnt even offer a greeting just stands there waiting... More

We stopped here as part of an all day excursion. The original plan was another restaurant so I'm not sure what changed. We liked the wide variety of options-jerk chicken and pork, burgers, fish fry, fried rice. The burgers and the jerk were good. the fried rice was not good and the fish and chips was okay. Beers were $4... More
