The food was great, the service was fast! I would definitely recommend ! I had the roasted fish, and it was seasoned perfectly. The restaurant also has a very cute atmosphere to it.

We stopped at both Scotchies locations, the food was great and the atmosphere is very casual and laid back. Lots of options on the menu and the Red Stripe was very cold

Stopped here with a tour group for lunch. The jerk chicken had no jerk about it and the rice and peas tasted like flour it was so dry. Will not return!!!

We have been to both Scotchies (Ocho Rios and Montego Bay). The first place we go to after getting out of the airport is Scotchies to put us in the Jamaican vibe.

We were looking for authentic jerk chicken while we were in Ocho Rios for the day and the locals all recommended this place. The food was amazing and reasonably priced. The only issue we had is hosting. There was no greeting upon our arrival so...More

I'm not sure of the distance between the Riu and Scotchies, we stayed at IberoStar. However, I think that the Riu is close to Iberostar and Scotchies was only about 10 mins. away. I would not go at night.

We visited Scotchies while going on a tour of the island. A taxi may be a little expensive to just take you there and back.

As a precaution I would make a reservation for a group that size, as it's a popular eatery and you could end up with a short wait... however, they do have a bar also. Hope this is of help!! (Herbie)
