We were staying in Oracabessa, but drove the 10-15 minutes to Ochi every morning for coffee. We were normally the only patrons, maybe another couple or so for the morning, but this spot has seen some parties! We felt like we landed in a RatPack bar from a forgotten era, and the nostalgia really added to the charm. The staff... More

I am not sure if they serve true Jamaican cuisine. But i didn't enjoy what I ordered. the chicken soup was bland so was the chicken meal. This place has a lot of good reviews so I am not sure what happened. Maybe because I got there close to closing time who knows. I wasn't impressed at all.

We ordered the snapper and the sweet and sour chicken to go. They were about 13 to 15 dollars each, which is just a touch high for the neighbourhood. But the portions were big enough for two to three meals each, and they tasted wonderful. Best sweet and sour chicken I've ever had.

We were told Glenn's had the best fish and chips in Ocho. What a disappointment!!! The batter was excessively thick, greasy and taste of old oil. The service was poor, we were the only two people in the dinning room and the waiter never came by after he delivered the meals. We had to go find him to get our... More

My husband, daughter and I spent two weeks in Ocho Rios, just down the street from Glenn's, and we enjoyed some nice meals there. It was nice inside, but we enjoyed there front patio. I am a vegetarian, and enjoyed the fresh vegetable curry and stir fry dishes. Their desserts are really nice too. Their waiter and waitress there were... More

Jamaica seems to be proliferated by the all inclusive experience - where people go and rarely leave the "compound", eat mediocre food and drink watered down cocktails. That is a shame - since if you don't leave the property you will miss a unique "home cooking" dinning experience. Madeline is the co-owner (with her husband) and cook of Glenn's and... More

We stayed at Glory Be, a short walk from our beach side cottages to Glenn's for 7 nights. On the recommendation of the cottage owners we tried Glenn's our first morning, and then made both breakfast and dinner several times during our stay. We got to meet Madelyn, a very hands on owner, and enjoyed the cheerful smiles and attentive... More

We've visited this area twice in the last year and absolutely love Glenn's. Plus they're right across from our room! Breakfast (the eggs, bacon and French toast are to die for). Lunches/dinners were fabulous too. The chicken cordon bleu, pineapple pork chops and curried shrimp are phenomenal. The staff is the best and the food is bought from local providers... More
