A Jamaican institution in Ocho Rio (Ochi to the locals). Open-air restaurant nicely laid out with gardens surrounding the seating and good jerk. Not as spicy as we expected but its all about the sauce you add! The chicken/pork is cooked sitting on top of logs which extend over a fire and then covered with galvanized metal sheets (all adds...

Excellent jerk pork and chicken cooked the way it should be, over an open log fire. Delicious and reasonably priced. Eating outside on picnic tables adds to the ambience, with flowering trees and the odd kitten wandering around looking for a morsel of food. Bar serves drinks and ice cold Red Stripe beer. Jamaica wouldn't be Jamaica without a visit... More

Leaving Montego Bay and heading to Ocho Rios, there is a quaint eatery called Scothies. The food is grilled on wood, and the drinks are tasty. Sit up on the top level and you can see the waves crashing on the rocky coastline. Red Stripe beer is a standard in Jamaica, and this place has the coldest I can remember.... More

Scotchie's was in full swing when our group of six arrived. The chicken and pork was full force on the grill. Our tour guide from Marvyn's Paradise Tours made sure we were taken care of by way of getting us a table and ordering our lunch. The restaurant is open air with some covered areas and clean (they even have... More

The Jerk here is simply the best, when I am in Jamaica I always make sure I visit the one in Ochi, best Jerk ever.

Unfortunately, this was not a fun visit for me as my table was surrounded by hungry, fighting cats. Now, I love cats, just not that many while I'm eating. Also, I don't know if the tables need to be refreshened more often, there were just too many flies to contend with. The grounds are nice and it really would be... More

Scotochie's will alway be one of the places I must eat there or on the run. Upstairs is my favorite area to sit and eat, they have the top on and enjoyed my last time there. Most of the staff are good but Natalee is the one I like to serve me with her pleasant smile and give you great... More
