You really must eat here. The food is fantastic - the chicken and pork were perfectly cooked, moist and tasty. The jerk sauce on the side is HOT HOT HOT! The atmosphere is also great. I love the big round tables with oil drum seating and lights. For 6 people, with more than enough food (we ordered 1/2 each and 1/4 would have been plenty) and drinks it was around $70. Service was great.
This is place is becoming more popular with tourists, but there were still lots of locals. Definitely will be back my next trip!

Just driving by this place it doesn't look like much, but the food was amazing! Every place you eat on the island you see jerk meats on the menu, but here it is the entire menu aside from a few side items available. I was with a group of 19 and they were able to promptly accomodate us. Tried the jerk pork, chicken and fish (watch out for bones), all of which were good. But by far the pork was my favorite. It was so well prepared - moist, bursting with flavor. Definitely a place you must eat if you are wanting a true taste of Jamaica.

Not much to look at, but very much in taste. The service is excellent and the jerk is the best in the world. There is no comparison to the jerk in the states and the jerk at Scotchies. The locals love it as much as the tourists.

Very Jamaican with lots of locals picking up take out. We go there every trip to Mo Ba. The Red bean and salt beef soup was outstanding. The jerk chicken was moist and had a nice bite to it. Jerk pork was spicey and had a nice smokey flavor. Service was great as always. More tourists are discovering this little Jamaican gem. I highly recommend this restaurant as a must visit every time you are in Mo Ba.

This was my first Jamaican jerk experience and I thought it was pretty yummy. I love seeing old methods of cooking traditional dishes. Try the sweet potato pudding. It's more of a thick custard consistency and they served it sliced like pie.
