“The Ruins at the Falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

Atmosphere is amazing as the waterfall cascades down into the outdoor dining area. You find yourself in a lush garden surrounded by a rainforest filled with tropical plants. This is a must have experience. The food and the staff are always excellent. You'll also most likely be entertained by local musicians as you dine. The buffet is excellent and well priced.

“Thirty Years Later”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

The first time I was at The Ruins at the Falls was 30 years ago and so I was delighted to see it was still there on my visit to Ocho Rios in March 2013.
It is a fabulous place to take memorable scenic pictures on the bridge with the Falls in the background .
If you are going to Ocho Rios it is worth a visit!

“Beautiful surroundings but don't expect much else”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013

If this place lived up to the beautiful surroundings the food should have been fantastic. Unfortunately, it is anything but! When looking at the menu prices then saw what was delivered from the kitchen it really made you realize that you were paying a lot and getting very little in return.
A buffet was also offered that supposedly had Jamaican dishes. I have enjoyed eating at Croydon Plantation in the past so had an idea of what Jamaican dishes should be. None of my table mates who went to the buffet had anything good to say about the food. It consisted of some dried, tasteless chicken and lukewarm side dishes.
I realize that this restaurant was busy, but still for the prices being charged you should have received something much better. If you are willing to just enjoy the surroundings then this place may be worth a visit. If you want to enjoy some good food find another place.
