We were staying at a resort but wanted to have some "real" Jamaican food and a friend recommended Scotchies. It was fantastic and we came back three times. The chicken and sweet potatoes were fabulous. We also have rice and beans and yams, but like the sweet potato best. We heard lots of raves about the fish as well, but we stuck to chicken. The service is good and fast and there is a good mix of locals and tourists so it always feels active. There were families with babies, dates and seniors around us so it works for everyone. If you are from North America or the UK, it's also very inexpensive given how great the food is. Two of us ate more than our fill with beer for under $20. This was a highlight of our time in Jamaica!

Called in on way back from touring to taste the real Jamaican Jerk chicken rice and peas which was a disappointment as the Jerk hut at our hotel Riu Montego Bay far out classed it for taste and quality.

It was close to the resort, and I enjoyed the chicken and yams, but they were out of bammys and festival.
