Delicious!

I ate jerk shrimp, curry chicken, jerk wings, and goat. It all was amazingly delicious. Their frozen drinks were super yummy, which by the way you can ask one 'to go'. They were friendly and worked quickly. Lastly remember to taste Ting !

I was looking forward to eat Jamaican food IN JAMAICA. Sadly the food at this place is nothing but tourist blend food, the flavor, quality was just NOT there! My wife had the Jerk chicken, I chose curry goat and the flavor just wasn't there... not even the beans tasted any better than average. Seen the name "Mama Marley", you... More

We had our tour guide bring us to authentic Jamaican restaurant and she brought us here. I had the jerk chicken and my wife had the jerk lobster. Both were outstanding and the prices were so reasonable. If in the area again I would go back!

Mama Marley's had a great menu of Jamaican cuisine. We had the jerk chicken and ox tail. Both were wonderful!

We stopped in Mama Marley's just for a quick bite while shopping. The jerk chicken wrap was delicious, my friend had the shrimp cocktail and was licking her fingers.

The food was the best,jerk chicken well done and the rice and peas was cooked with real Jamaica coconut milk, can still taste it in my mouth. Red Stripe Beer was icy cold and refreshing, we couldn't have asked for more. Thumbs up to the waiters, bartenders and chefs.

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.
