Shuttle bus driver said it was the best jerk chicken on the island ! We went there for lunch as part of our excursion tour package. Jerk Chicken was awesome ! Side of seasoned rice and their fried sugar type bread. Tasty and filling !

This was the best authentic Jamaican food. The smoked pork practically melted in your mouth, I'm still dreaming about it!

Scotchies has amazing jerk chicken and pork. It's a low frills, outdoor, roadside jerk shack but what it lacks in luxury it makes up for with delicious food.

I'm not sure of the distance between the Riu and Scotchies, we stayed at IberoStar. However, I think that the Riu is close to Iberostar and Scotchies was only about 10 mins. away. I would not go at night.

We visited Scotchies while going on a tour of the island. A taxi may be a little expensive to just take you there and back.

As a precaution I would make a reservation for a group that size, as it's a popular eatery and you could end up with a short wait... however, they do have a bar also. Hope this is of help!! (Herbie)
