If you're looking for a restaurant to actually sit down and eat, I suggest you keep looking. The tiny place I found after asking a few people (despite having the location, it's a short street) looks like a garage or an apartment in a bad...More

We trusted our taxi driver to bring us to an authentic Jamaican restaurant for ox tail, and he brought us here. It was so delicious and wonderful to be part of the culture of Jamaica

Delicious ackee and salt fish. That's probably my favorite meal there for breakfast, with the fried dumplings. Once you have one, you'll want to keep having more (the dumplings, that is). Good service, ok surroundings.

Local food..cheap and delicious... small menu..but its all good. Rice and peas means rice and beans...keep that in mind. Baked chicken is tender and juicy. Small place where locals go.

Mom's is the true Jamaican experience. Not fancy but plentiful, delicious food. Tiny working class restaurant hidden between larger buildings. Even when we knew where it was we had trouble finding it but persevere.

I guess it's true that they do run out of things, because we showed up at 6:30 pm and the only things left on the menu were fried chicken and curried goat. Almost walked out, but changed our minds and stayed, and of course we...More

We went for breakfast and felt that as a tourist I was getting authentic food. They don't take cards, but you are able to pay in US dollars and will get change in their currency. The food was traditional (stewed chicken, mackerel, saltfish, ackee, etc.)...More

The Chicken soup was to die for! We had curry goat and it was the very best I've ever had. A truly authentic experience.

It's a walking distance (5-10 min); US currency is accepted everywhere in Jamaica. That place is inexpensive and the prices are in Jamaican dollars but the conversion is easy, 1USD=120JD
