In summary: go to Scotchies Our driver Tony dragged us here twice, clearly on the take. The first time it wasn't open. Not a local in sight. Menu's are listed in USD and feature New York prices. Was the most expensive meal I had during my entire stay in Jamaica.

The food at this restaurant was just ok. It may be that I don't care for Jamaican food - the rice and beans were very dry and the jerk chicken was bony...

Loved this place. We were hungry after our tour to the Blue Hole and decided to catch a bite. WOWZA....great jerk MEAL--tons of fresh cooked jerk chicken, loads of fries and ice cold Red Stripe. A great place to eat and sit on the second floor--enjoy the local flavor and views of Ocho Rios!

We had a group of 14 people out on an excursion for the day and stopped in for lunch. They were easily able to accommodate us on their balcony looking out over the street. The ripe plantain and jerk chicken wings were amazing! Be careful if you can't handle a lot of spice though. The jerk definitely has some heat... More

Situated in the Sonis shopping plaza it's the only place to get something to eat and drink in the plaza. Great cocktails at around $7-$8 each. The menu looked good too but we didn't eat. You will be pestered by a guy trying to lure you into the liquor store next door which is part of Mama Marleys. A great... More

The food, ambiance, and music was a perfect way to wind down our time in Ochos Rios. The staff was friendly and efficient.
