Jerk chicken is nicely seasoned and very tasty. You can dine there or take out. Great casual dining stop.

Visited the Jerk Center while porting in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Just a short cab ride to find this wonderful open air restaurant with thatched huts and wood fenced walk ways and open air tables surrounded by a garden setting. The meats were being freshly cooked over an open pit and the smell was delightful. Mouth watering, I headed to the... More

We eat here every time we visit Ocho Rios. It is wonderful! Be prepared to be patient if you order the roast fish, but it is totally worth it! If you don't like real jerk, then find someplace else to eat, it's spicy, but delicious!

Where the locals eat. Reasonable prices and good local food. Near the Port of Call if you are on a cruise ship.

We wanted to stop at a different jerk place (that we tried on a prior trip), but he convinced us to try something new. We ordered a sample of ribs, chicken and pork and some festival. We weren't very hungry, so only had... More

We stopped here on our tour of Ocho Rios.We asked for the Chicken and the Pork, unfortunately they said it would take a while for the Pork so we both had the Chicken and fries. When it came it was terrific, the chicken was spicy and the fries were great. If you are on one of the Marvyn Paradise Tours... More
