A typical for Jamaica eating spot that was little more than an outdoor grill with some tables, the food was excellent and the price reasonable. Others in the group felt the jerk was not "authentic". I honestly didn't even try the jerk sauce as it was way too spicy hot. But the chicken and the pork were moist and wonderful.

Best Jerk chicken/pork on the island....by far!!! Very close to the resort and you could walk if you had the mind to. I ran every morning along this route and felt save every time!

Our tour guide took us to this restaurant and said they are the best restaurants in Jamaica. The jerk chicken was wonderful, cooked over logs in a firepit, and you have to try festival pastries that went so well with the meal!! So good! We visited the restaurant while on a cruise and my teenage sons felt this was the best food we had on the whole trip! We are still talking about our experience there.

This is always our first stop after checking into the hotel, we don't even unpack. This is the absolute best jerk I have ever eaten. The festival bread is so good. We have been going here for almost 10 years and we never get tired of it. Even though we were running late for our flight, we stopped and got some for the road. Our server Natalie was the absolute best and very attentive. We had 12 people in our group and she took very good care of us. We love the outdoor rustic type atmosphere. Keep up the good work Scotchies!!! See you again next year....
