Touristy, although many locals come here. You choose your seafood out of a freezer---yup, it was not freshly caught, kind of wierded me out after all the hype about this place, right on the beach. The curry conch was good, but I have had better. Long drive from Frenchman's Bay, nice day trip, but very average.

This place is absolutely beautiful. It is located on the ocean. You select your fresh fish from the cooler, then they prepare it as you wish (brown stew, jerk, escovitch, etc). They also have lobster, shrimp, conch, etc. They bring your meal to you at your private little hut by the water. They have an onsite bar or you can order your drink at your table. Enjoy Jamaica music while you eat. Watch the locals come in with their catch of the day. Little Ochie is a must see. Thumbs up!

Lil Ochie was a bit of a drive from Treasure Beach but it was a nice lil day getaway. The place is nice, right on the water. The food is good, but I would say a little overpriced. Would def go back.

We ate here after doing the Appleton Rum Estate tour. It is about an hour (towards Kingston) from Appleton. My ONLY warning -- we were coming from Montego Bay -- the restaurant is a good 2 1/2 - 3 hours away from town. Combining with Appleton -- we were gone from 9:00am - 7:30pm.

Now on to the good stuff -- simply one of the best meals I have had anywhere. Fresh fish everywhere that you can personally select, have weighed, and prepared anyway you want. Our driver helped us order -- Jerk Red Snapper, Lobster, Conch, and all the fixings. Fish Tea. Red Stripes. The food was absolutely amazing. Flavors and freshness can not be compared. Best meal we had on the island. Prices very reasonable for this quality (we paid for our drivers meal too -- $88 for everything including tip)

The views of the ocean were amazing. Seeing people pull up their boats and fresh fish hauls were great. Sat under covered huts with a nice breeze.

Truly an amazing memory for our trip. If you love fresh fish -- it is worth the drive.
