“Private Tour of Gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

Our tour guide, Rusty, stopped by here when we asked to see some gardens. The place is closed, but a caretaker took us through the gardens and gave us a history of the former plantation and the many plants and their uses.

“CLOSED.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

The Ruins Restaurant has been closed since last year.
Too bad as during the day a lot of tour buses would stop there and the tourist would enjoy looking at the falls and the beautiful big Koi fish swimming in the ponds around the dining area. A Jamaican lunch buffet was set up daily.
In the evening the dinner Menu was Chinese and very pricey. The place always had very FEW diners, despite the fact that taxi drivers were paid to bring people to the restaurant.

“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!
