Anna-Kay Tomlinson, affectionately known as "Miss T," opened Miss T’s Kitchen in May 2009, fulfilling her lifelong dream of creating a truly authentic Jamaican dining experience. Her passion for cooking, knowledge of Caribbean herbs and spices and years of catering experience resulted in her blending the tastes, smells, sights and sounds of her island home into an unforgettable cultural celebration. She has created a restaurant that is exemplary of all things Jamaican: the rustic country cuisine, the colourful culture, and the great outdoors. There are no walls at Miss T’s Kitchen—just a roof held up by tree-like posts decorated with red fairy lights. “No walls” describes the real Miss T, too.

Small portions for the price but very delicious! The rum punch is pretty tasty and the customer service is top notch

My wife daughter and I visited the restaurant on March 13th 2021 and upon arrival were quite impressed by the decor and cozy setting right in the heart of bustling Ochi Rios. Unfortunately that's where my compliments end. Unfortunately I cannot, in good conscience, recommend...this establishment to anyone I know, the wait was beyond tolerable, almost 2.5 hours from being seated to arrival of entree's, and to top it off the food was far below par, my oxtail was woefully under-seasoned (read bland) and the gravy was translucent dare I say watered down (anyone who has had oxtail from even the most basic of jamaican cookshops knows what oxtail gravy should be like) and the mediocre curry goat was no match for my father-in-law's handyman who can build furniture, repair plumbing and install water pumps all while delivering a mean pot of curry goat. Our initial glass of water when seated was the limits of our beverage experience as no one bothered to return throughout our visit to offer any more water or even a drink menu. I'm sorry to post such a review but this restaurant has done a great disservice to jamaican cooking.More

I can’t quite recall much about the food on my first visit but yesterday was pretty memorable. Made reservations in the morning & got their a bit late but was seated promptly. Covid Protocols were in place & I felt comfortable at ALL times. The...food: So it took awhile longer than it should have & they were apologetic but when it did come ... OMG. I’ve NEVER tasted a run down sauce quite like that ( I had Shimp Penne in rundown sauce) AMAAAZINNGGGGG!!! I can’t imagine anything else on the menu tasting this good but I did try a piece of the oxtail & it was super yummy too. Would have been 5 stars if not for the 40minute waitMore

This beautiful restaurant is off the beaten path in a very relaxing covered outdoor environment. The food was out of this world. We had the shrimp in drawn down coconut milk as an appetizer it was absolutely succulent and delicious. My wife had a whole...red snapper that she loved and I had shrimp jerk style and a nice jerk sauce that was again delicious. We are going for a massage now buta will be back after the massage for desserts I may have to make another day trip out here to eat here again it was so good.More

We had an excellent meal with customer service to match. The curry goat was great and the curried shrimp even better. Though it wasn't on the menu, our waiter brought us friend breadfruit just because we mentioned it, along with maybe the best pear (avocado)...I've tasted. I say the spot for dining in the area.More

This is what dining out should be like. Firstly all health protocols for COVID are followed. I was recommended by a local at a beach that I visited. The moment you walk in you fall in love with the decor and the ambiance. The open...space concept is beautifully set up and there are at least 3 options for seating depending on the size group. The food is delicious (lobster, oxtail pasta, fritters, curry ackee on bammy) and customer service excellent. I definitely recommend. Observation: Better/bigger sign at the entrance of the road. I drove pass had to turn back and ask a taxi operator for direction. The price for the meal is a bit high.More

Visited with family based on what we saw on social media, the staff was impeccable. Our waiter was courteous, knowledgeable, attentive and well mannered. Our food arrived quickly and was exactly as we ordered. The food was amazing, absolutely nothing was a miss. The oxtail...pasta was Devine, amongst some of the best I have ever had. The chicken was cooked to perfection and the rice was prepared properly. Back to the pasta, it was al dente, well proportioned and was bursting with different layers of complementing flavors, the oxtail was well seasoned and was married brilliantly with the Alfredo. The prices are on the high side, but with food this good, an ambiance that nice and staff that courteous, they can have my money any day. So much more to say, but let me finish by saying I will definitely be a frequent customer.More

My cousin and I did the Reggae, Rum, & Jerk tour with Carnival Cruise Lines for our birthday’s and we loved every second of it. The first stop was this restaurant, Miss T’s. We had a salad, curry goat, BBQ jerk chicken, and some sort...of beans. The punch they served was beyond delicious and we kept trying to get one of the waiters to give us the recipe to take home lol. Since the day we did this tour was my cousin’s actual birthday, they sang to her and brought out a slice of chocolate cake for her. It really made her day.More

My family walked it and it took us about 15 minutes on the return trip. We stopped several places getting there so it was a leisurely stroll. Worth the walk.
