We (me, my husband, 12 year old, and 6 year old) visited Scotchies after a trip to Blue Hole. It was every bit as good as we we were hoping. Seating is outdoors and relaxed. There were a number of locals also having lunch when we were there. Menus are priced in Jamaican currency, but the bill was in both... More

Great food but not the most sanitary...a lot of stray cats and the way the cook the food I'm sure is not up to code in America.

Awesome authentic Jamaican fare! The location & atmosphere is true to the island's style & heritage. Also ran into an old friend I met a few years ago in Ocho Rios that added joy to my day!

Was a place to visit but overall over rated and food portion sizes were small and costly in comparison. We later found juicee patties which was a lot better and miles cheaper

This place is getting busier and therefore the wait is longer, but so worth it for this delicious chicken. You order chicken and sides separately, so you can order as much or as little as you want. Festivals are delicious here too. Like the outdoor eating environment as well.

I had the jerk pork and the jerk chicken. My wife had fried fish. We both had festival.All excellent. You see it cooked in front of you on huge racks. The smell of the cooking food is almost as good as the taste.

Great value and super tasty jerk chicken. Casual outdoor experience. Prices are in Jamaican dollars but they do accept other currency.

Jerk spot recommended by the locals with good reason. Delicious food, great value,no fuss.We tried most of the menu & couldn't fault any of it. Would be perfect for families on a budget.

Visited Scotchies on our last vacation to Jamaica on the recommendations of a number of our favourite Iberostar staff members. It is certainly worth going off property to taste this little bit of Jamaican heaven! The chicken is cooked on an old open air grill to perfection and the venue, although simple, is all that is needed to enjoy true... More
