The food was served in larger portions so we split a plate of jerk chicken and rice. The chicken was... More

We really enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. The staff was attentive and the food was excellent. The oxtail was absolutely amazing as well as the curry goat. If you visit Ocho Rios I highly suggest having a meal at Mama Marley's!

On Main Street in the heart of the tourist shopping we saw a open air tropical restaurant on the second level. We stopped off at Mama Marley's (Bob Marley's Mother) Restaurant and tried some jerk chicken and some extremely spicy hot rice with red beans. The service was great. The food was fantastic. I have not had any rice so... More

Great open air 2nd floor seating. Rented immediately and seated at the beat tab available. Immediate service. Local beers to choose from. Largish menu which includes goat curry, which by the way was great. Loads of hot sauces to use. Staff very friendly and pretty efficient. They acted as if they wanted us there and we weren't a nuisance to... More

I just wanted a light bite and the reggae wraps were perfect here. Reasonably priced and with friendly service. Close to the cruise port.

We were on a tour and they stopped at this outside mall for shopping. Love the location above the street. The food was really good, I had the Goat Curry and my husband had the Oxtail and of course we had the Red Stripe. I have never had Goat before, but if it all tastes like this dish at Mama... More

We had the jerk chicken and chicken fingers (for the kids). The food was excellent, I would have given a higher rating but the server was snarky and scolded us "americans" for using Jamaican money instead of American. We are Canadian btw. Oh and she never came around to see if we wanted more drinks and didn't seem to care... More
