Stopped off here while out and about in Ocho Rios for a bite to eat and a drink. Really good Jerk and nice cocktails. The setting is very pretty and the prices were reasonable.

A little hidden, but man is the jerk pork and jerk sausage worth the effort to find. A real gem. Every thing here was delicious and the service was very good. Be sure to get the “fries”

This is one of the longest serving jerk shop in OCHO Rios. They also do a very good BBQ ribs and the venue really helps the appetite.
