Found the chicken and pork good, sauce at the table was excellent; full of flavor but will make you drool from both your mouth and your nose. They also have cold beer.

Chicken was good , pork was dry and boring. Served without sauces or accompaniments, everything separate. I was dying for fresh fruit or vegetable so I asked if they had a salad (not on menu) "Only a raw salad" the server said. I was so pleased, fresh lettuces, tomato, carrots, cukes----what a luxury. Price average for the island

We had our driver take us to a "jerk" restaurant. He suggested the "Jerk Center". There was a mix of cruise ship people and Locals. About what I'd expect with 3-4 cruise ships in port. We found the prices reasonable and really enjoyed their jerk chicken and their take on fried rice. Their menu was diverse enough to satisfy my... More

Centrally located in Ocho Rios. Great bartenders and festivals. Jerk can be hit or miss, but the fish is always excellent.

Went there with high expectations - chicken was served had no jerk spice - think they baked it - gave me a bottle of liquid hot sauce that really was not very good. Read the reviews prior and had high expectations, but am convinced whoever wrote the reviews had never had real jerk chicken.

We took the advice of the reviews on Tripadvisor as well as the cabbie taking us around the city for some authentic jerk chicken. We looked forward to visiting Jamaica for the food and some nice sights on our cruise port stop. The restaurant wasn't busy when we arrived for lunch and we were not greeted as we entered. We...

This restaurant is full of locals as well as tourists, as it is kind of centrally located. Our bus stopped here, and I had delicious freshly-cooked jerk pork. Others onboard my bus had the jerk chicken and also liked it. They have a large outdoor bar.

When we actually drove up in the parking lot,,we could actually smell the aroma of the jerk pork and chicken, it just magnetically draws you in!!!!!!!!!! Once you start to eat, you do not want your jerk to be done!!!!!! IT'S THAT A M A Z I N G......
