We have been here a few times. The first time I took pictures of the pit where all the chicken was being cooked it smelt like heaven and very interesting in how they cook the chicken over the long & med. size sticks of wood with the zink laying over it. They have little signs & pic. in the garden... More

Went here after a long day of swimming in Blue Hole and at Dunns River. The food line was long at Scotchies but the bar is close by so you can get a strong, cool punch to keep you company. We got jerk chicken and pork, sweet potato, festival, breadfruit and rice and peas. Everything was delicious (with the exception... More

We for lunch and dinner! Dinner was much better it as Saturday night live Jamaican band and service was much faster! The curry goat was spicy enough, but my kids jerk chicken was okay but the rice and sweet potatoes was cold! But rum cake was delicious!

My parents live in Jamaica. I brought my mum here for the last night of my visit before returning to the UK. The ambience and layout of the place is nice and I imagine it must do well with the Friday night crowd, mainly for drinks and snacks. But.....it is called "The Jerk Centre" a very brave name for an... More

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. When we went to order the food, our initial choices were not available. Then when we finally placed the order, we were told that we would have wait 30 minutes for the fillet fish meal... More
