“Mom's is 'da best!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

I absolutely love the food. If you want authentic Jamaican food, this is the place to go in Ocho Rios! It is a little rustic and you will pay a little more than you would at a regular 'cook shop'. You will enjoy the meals 'fer sho'.

“I already missed you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Great Jamaican food and more than affordable price. There is no another place like this to try local food and service is also very friendly and professional.Try their rundown shrimps and cucumber juice!

Bonus point - I forgot my bag there with passport, cash, credit cards and when we returned in 40 minutes waiters secured it and were happy to give it back to me.

“Top notch food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

The location leaves a bit to be desired. Its a hole in  the wall alright, although these type of establishments usually have some of the best food and this is the case for Moms. The food is very delicious and if you ask for a little more (what we call brawta in jamaica) they will oblige. The prices are very reasonable as this is a fav with the locals.

“Awesome food, awesome price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We were very happy when we visited this place for lunch, the food was excellent. We ordered fried chicken and oxtail which came with rice and peas and vegetables. Everyone in our party loved it so much we returned every morning after at 9 am for breakfast the ackee and saltfish is awesome. This place is for you if you want a true Jamaican experience with authentic food. The Fruit Punch was awesome. Good for breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

“Best fried chicken!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

If your in the Ocho area Def. Try this local restaurant. With your meal you will get a soup, fried chicken rice and veggies. You will want to return for more of the best fried chicken in Jamaica. Amazing!
