We were dropped off here by our tour guide while on a cruise in Ocho Rios with Royal Caribbean. After eating here, I am positive that this place is just a knock off for tourists.

Good place to eat and relax during the rain. Food was good and the Red Stripe was ICE cold. The only thing I didn't like is they allowed smoking

I liked this place. Very authentic. Delicious food. The atmosphere was okay. You don't have much of a view. Just a shopping area.

Food was ok. Not bad. If you are shopping in Ocho Rios it is a convenient place to eat. The service was good. Overall nothing to seek out but not a bad place to eat.
