I have visited and eaten at this restaurant about 4 ties nw and it’s always so good. We get the boil and fry and boil dumpling, festival and plain rain with ackee, callalloo and curry chicken. They are always so good but you have to...go early or it is sold out. My whole family loves the food. The taste, temperature and customer service. The price is what is expected in this area so I not complain. We don’t eat at the restaurant as it is always at capacity. It’s not a big area to sit and eat but I don’t mind.More

Great food, big portions, open on a Sunday night as well which is rare. Very reasonable too, fried chicken with rice and peas + curry goat with rice and peas plus a drink for under 2000jmd.

Really tasty and fresh food. We had jerk chicken, rice and peas, curry chicken with boiled provisions and corn and barbecue chicken. Everything was very very tasty except the barbecue chicken. Affordable prices. Will definitely purchase food there again.

We found this restaurant from our taxi driver. We told him that we wanted to have local curried goat. Unfortunately, they were out of goat when we arrived, but the rest of our food was amazing! We had rice and peas, stewed chicken, and cow...hoof. All were simply delicious. We arrived very hungry and for $15 USD left very full (including a tip and 2 Red Stripes). I can’t recommend the food here enough. It’s a very local experience and most likely not for everyone. If you are expecting a “resort style” meal then go elsewhere. But if you are searching for a real local experience, then you will not go wrong here. We will definitely return on our next visit to Ocho Rios!More

Huge selection of food available. Some of the meat dishes were dry on occasion though, and had perhaps been left out a little too long. Portions very generous. Their hard food (banana, yam, sweet potato, breadfruit) were some of my favourites along with the baked...chicken. I can also recommend the natural juicesMore

I absolutely love this restaurant! Every time I come to Jamaica I'm itching to get to soldiers to eat. I have pretty much tried practically everything and I have never been disappointed!

Looking for a quick and delicous box lunch ?( take away), Soldiers is just the place. Can't say the seating area is great but after all it is geared to taking away. Wide variety of cooked and ready Jamaican specialty foods like saltfish and ackee,...plantain, johny cake, callaloo etcMore
