It was my first and my last time visiting Mother's. I ordered the patty meal. The meal included 2 patties (Yuck...double strike) and a drink. The fountain was out of order and the cashier poured my Ginger Beer in a cup from a 2-liter bottle. It was so flat and disgusting. The patties were the worst ever. Although it was... More

Actually stop during the tour and picked up the OXTAILS, rice and peas which was suggested by out tour driver. The wait wasn't long since he actually called the restaurant ahead of time with the orders of everyone interested . Food was awesome and reasonably priced ($10) for a local meal.

Enjoyed the food--good Jamaican fare & reasonably priced. Only problem was it was a bit off the beaten path & the walk back to the hotel was sketchy---it's a very busy part of town with MANY folks hanging out & begging aggressively. Take a taxi!

This place is a must stop because the patties are so fresh. I have never had such a good beef patty and coco bread in my life. I wish they had this in the US. It;s not as cheap as I thought it would be but hey what we can say, they know alot of tourists come to eat.

One of the best kept secrets in Ocho Rios. The first time I tried it was in 2008 so when I went back this summer, I had to try it. The food is still good and authentic

We stopped here after an evening of clubbing. The food was good, there was a limited selection due to the late hours but the perk is that it's open 24 hrs so you can grab a bite at any time.

Mother's is a chain restaurant in Jamaica. It's very inconsistent in food preperation and the service is horrible. The place is not cleaned properly and the bathroom is dirty with no soap or toilet paper. Better to go to KFC
