Scotchie's is a great little place to enjoy traditional Jamaican cuisine, but its location, several miles from Ocho Rios, requires a taxi: riders beware! Our driver, Garth, assured us that he could take my husband and myself to Scotchie's and back to town for $20.00. The ride out to the restaurant was pleasant, with views of old plantations and the...

The barbecue was wonderful!!! We tried almost everything so we had a large variety. Since the prices were reasonable that was easy to do. They smoked the meat and corn on a grill with wood then covered the grill with a sheet of metal roofing. The blackened smoke covered the inside of the shack. There's something for everyone depending on... More

This is a great place if you want to venture off your resort. The food was fantastic and very authentic. The service is very quick and the eating atmosphere is interesting, but in an extremely positive way. If you want something quick and extremely authentically Jamaican, then this is the place to go. If I am ever in Ocho Rios... More

This is a decent location. The chicken is cooked on an open BBQ pit. The price is good for what you get. The pepper sauce is very spicy...you will know what I mean later!

Our tour guide brought us here for lunch. EXCELLENT CHOICE. Great food. Great location. As it had started to pour rain, we loved being protected but still lovely open concept dining.

The service leaves something to be desired, but consistently good jerk (chicken, pork and fish). Be sure to check out the soup of the day and add a festival (or two) to your order. Locals and tourists visit this location regularly. There is also a full bar with good bartenders.
