“Now I'm in Jamaica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

If you want to enjoy a real genuine taste of Jamaican cuisine and experience the culture, you have to enjoy some jerk chicken or fish at Scotchies. It's a great chance to be amongst the real people and you'll love it. It's a simple place serving wholesome food, not posh and everyone is welcomed. I loved it.

“Awesome food and experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

We loved Scotchies, had the jerk chicken, pork, chicken sausage and "festival" bread. Jerk chicken and pork were best we had while visiting. The location is very down to Earth and a popular local joint.
