We’ve been going to Jamaica for 12 years and we go there 2-3 times on every trip, great place food and drink great view especially in the evening.

Stopped for a drink on a city tour. Drinks were reasonably priced. View was amazing, try to go when there are cruise ships in port. A few vendors on the walk from the bus to the bar, but nothing too pushy.

When we arrived at Oceans on the Ridge we thought it was closed. There were no cars in the parking lot and no one sitting in the open air reaturant. We just got lucky and had the view and whole restaurant to ourselves. The drinks...and food were good and reasonbly priced for Jamaica. The service was great. The jerk was good and spicy. I would definitely recommend going there, especially after the cruise ships have left.More

Oceans went above and beyond with their service! The food was amazing and the view was breath taking! Definitely a must see and we'll be back very soon!

Arrived, there where very few persons and it seems some were about to leave. We came in and said good evening and I am sure the bartender didn’t answer. We were the only ones sitting on the deck and we had to call her for...service. She didn’t acknowledge us and took another 5-8 minutes before she came over to us and she was like “yea”. The total wait before we were attended to was a little over 30 minutes. This wasn’t my first visit and had a brought a group business there before. I am shocked at the level of service and won’t be going back. Very poor service or should I say no customer service from the young lady. There is a picture of the lovely view but honestly that’s all it was. I’m very disappointed.More

Dinner at Oceans on the Ridge restaurant is a real treat. The restaurant is outdoors (many tables are under a roof in case of rain) high on a hillside with fantastic views of Ocho Rios and the ocean below. The food was good and prices...are very reasonable, with most entrees in the $8 - 12 US range. They offer a reasonable range of food choices and a very extensive list of drink options. If you're driving, the restaurant is relatively easy to find because it's just before Shaw Park Gardens. If you're using a Garmin like the one we had, it can be very misleading but just watch for small signs for Oceans on the Ridge (and for Shaw Park Gardens) at the main intersections as you near the restaurant. It's down a short driveway on the right just before the gardens. The road is in poor shape but so long as you take it slow through the worst of the potholes it's fine. About the only negative is that service was on the slow side but otherwise good. If you're in a hurry this might not be the best choice but we didn't mind waiting a bit because we had that view to enjoy while we waited. They may have more staff working at lunch because according to our waitress they get a fair bit of business from the cruise ships.More

Amazing views of the city and port. Great food that was cooked to order. Very attentive and personable staff. Will definitely visit again when in Jamaica!

Arriving on a cruise, our favorite driver Spencer, took us on a great tour that ended here. The view is amazing and so are the cocktails. We were able to catch up on the internet . We took great photos of our cruise ship from...this lovely spot.More

We stopped here on January 1st, as part of a Private Tour with Chris Jamaican Tours. The view is absolutely breathtaking. The deck is huge. They have clean bathrooms, food, and full bar as well. This has to be the best view high atop Ocho...Rios. A great place to sit back relax and enjoy a cold Red Stripe, while taking in the amazing view!More

I would love to review the tourists who traipse even onto the deck of this restaurant, take pictures and leave without even buying a drink. So rude! The view is worth the trip up the hill. Very very nice people. I enjoyed the food. Please...at least buy a drink if you check out the view people! It's the decent thing to do. Like buying a donut if you use the bathroom at Dunkin donuts.More
