Food is amazing. Super tasty. Feels like you eating in a jungle. Love the jerk chicken. Safe. Superb value for money. Meal is less than £5. Table service available.

Real Jamaican Jerk Food in an attractive beer garden kind of setting. Don't be put off by the entrance through the carpark -- the inside is nice.

“A Favorite in Kingston”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

This place was recommended to us by our hotel (Indies Hotel) and was listed in our Lonely Planet guidebook too, and we understand why--the food was terrific for the price. Scotchies is tucked in a parking lot, but once you're inside the restaurant, you forget where you are. And you're still pretty much outside too, as the seating is all at picnic tables either under palapas or out in a garden. It was very popular/lively place, and we also enjoyed hanging out at the bar before getting a table.

“Great place”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Great food (my first time eating jerk pork). Just a shame we were so jet-lagged and so didn't stay to eat more.

Don't be put off by the dimly lit parking lot
