We stayed across the street from Ossie's at the Sea Wind. I was on a mission to find great jerk chicken and pork, and Ossie's fulfilled this mission with ease. Definitely worth dragging yourself away from the beach for this!

Tried small portion of Jerk Pork....and...under seasoned, almost tasteless. Was Very disappointed. Must have been an off day. You may want to buy small portion first and taste rather than jump In with both feet!

Hi TAD52,

The hot pepper definitely needs to go on the side. If placed directly on the meat, be ready!

My favourite place and some of my best friends in Negril. Paulette , Calvin (taxi driver) and the great man himself Ossie, are amongst the nicest people you will ever meet . This is the first and last place we visit on every trip to Negril. the jerk pork is my personal favourite but Paulettes curry chicken is up there with the best of them. She even gave me spices and the recipe to make my own. Ossie.... what can i say , he is just the nicest , kindest person ever , giving us fresh mangoes straight off his tree most days. Lovely. You must go and visit them when in Negril , you wont regret it .Ive only been back a week and miss them already.

If you like spicy,then this is spicy at its delicious best. I can still inhale all the flavors and taste the sweeet saliva dripping chicken!!! Wish we had one here!

Hi Mark R,

Thanks for the post and the compliment.

Unfortunately, we're not in Canada, so you'll have to come back to visit us in Negril ;)
