Ocho Rios is rather curious in that there is a "village" that you can wander into from the cruise ship. But it is owned by the cruise lines, it is not real. So we negotiated with a cab driver: for $100, we had him for the day. You have to walk quite a bit with the cab driver to get... More

Food was good and reasonable but a very long wait for self service. I would recommend the table service. Very close to the cruise port.

I had the opportunity to visit Ocho Rios Village Jerk Center. The food wasn't too bad but the service is what brings down the rating.

The jerk at the Jerk Centre was very tasty, the atmosphere is good and staff are very friendly. Free wifi is offered, relaxing place to chill out with friends. Parking is available although the parking loot is quite busy at times.

Our air bnb host recommended this place so we walked there our first night. It was a little hard to find at night with some vague directions but a friendly local pointed us in the right direction. The food was decent and they had standard Jamaican fair which is what we were looking for on our first night in Jamaica!... More

Our family had lunch here during our activities in Jamaica. The food was great (don't miss the bread fruit) and the environment was clean and well kept. Sure it is a bit of a tourist joint, you won't find locals there, but our family enjoyed it and would return.

Had lunch her before heading back to the cruise ship. Staff was friendly and helpful. I ordered the jerk chicken, rice and peas, and festival. Chicken was ok some pieces were a little dry. The rice and peas and festival were good. My friend ordered the curry chicken which was very flavorful.

The place is outdoors, open, very nice low key place to sit down and have some good jerk chicken. The machine would not take my credit card, good thing i had cash on me. Not very fancy but food was good.
