Forget what you read...best in the West, three dives, none of them compare to Ossie. She has the best chicken on the island. Authentic spices and very good. She’s on the main road directly across from Negril Palms. Do be careful at night; some locals...More

We thought the food was great and recommend you stopping. We had the chicken, pork, and rice and peas. You can even jump in on a game of dominoes with the locals. Great prices also!

I got off my vegetarian diet for the food at Ossies! I used to live near by, and could smell food being prepared. In Jamaica, every family has their own version of this - Ossie's was astounding.

We knew the food was going to be good here when there were several Jamaicans eating there. Sure it's not the most appealing places but most Jamaican restaurants aren't in Negril. It was great value and nice and fresh they cook to order so you...More

Great Jerk Chicken or Jerk pork. A whole pound of pork with rice and peas for 10 bucks! If you are on a budget or looking to experience what locals eat, please go there. Did I mention beer for $2!?

My husband and I dream about this place when we are not in Jamaica!! I don't know how she does it but her jerk chicken is out of this world. She marinades it all day and then you can add the spicy-Scotch bonnet sauce or/and...More
