The second time around...it was much better. The staff is more pleasant than the last time we visited. The food was good. Portions a little small but still quite tasty.

If you are traveling to Jamaica, you can't visit the island without going to Scotchie's. This restaurant gives you the real Jerk. I tend to stop by at least 3 or more times during my trip.
