In Ocho Rios, Jamaica, food is king. There’s jerk chicken, great seafood and decadent desserts all over the town, but having so many great restaurants to choose from during your stay can be overwhelming.
So we’ve done the work for you!
While you enjoy a stay at one of the Super Clubs resorts, we narrowed it down to four great restaurants that you should make sure you visit during your stay.
Bamboo Blu: Located along the Caribbean Sea in Ocho Rios’ Mammee Bay, it’s all about a meal and a view as you can sit outside and dine on starters, such as freshly prepared salt fish bammy bruschetta and crab wontons. Bamboo Blu has a mouthwatering selection of entrees, including grilled veggie burgers, Blu beef burgers, and tasty coconut rundown snapper.
Of course, Jamaica’s famous jerk chicken can be found on the Bamboo Blu menu too. If you have room when you are done with your starters and entree — and you should definitely try to save the room — make sure that you indulge in a decadent dessert. It’s your choice of lime cay pie, mocha cheesecake, coconut ice cream or other sugary treats. Or, combine a few desserts – it is your vacation! -- and enjoy a cup of Jamaican Blue Mountain joe to top off your meal.
Miss T’s Kitchen: Tucked away in a cul-de-sac off of Main Street in Ocho Rios, Miss T’s Kitchen sandwiches and wraps, fried chicken, and seafood delicacies will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. Travelers must try Miss T's famous curry Goat, which is tender chunks of goat meat seasoned with her own herbs and spices and simmered in a rich curry sauce. If goat is a little too much for your taste buds, don’t miss a serving of Miss T’s Honey Crispy Chicken, which is chicken that is fried and then rolled in honey and garlic before it’s baked. Don’t worry, they have extra napkins for your drool. Pasta lovers will love the Jam-Thai Seafood Pasta, which is lobster and shrimp simmered in Jamaican and Thai spices with lemongrass and ginger in a peanut coconut sauce.

Christopher’s: The best part about visiting Christopher’s is that you don’t need to be a guest of the Hermosa Cave resort to sit on the veranda and enjoy the original dishes that Chef Conroy prepares, such as the Scotch bonnet drizzle, pimento-smoked beef tenderloin and curried goat ravioli. The restaurant is located only a short distance from Ocho Rios Bay Beach and Turtle River Park.
Evita’s: Last, but definitely not least, you don’t need to be afraid of this authentic 1860s gingerbread house in Ocho Rios because it houses a restaurant where you can find tasty pasta dishes right in the heart of Jamaica. Pasta? Yes, this menu is a fusion of Jamaican and Italian dishes and includes seafood, vegetarian and meat selections, such as Lasagna ‘Rastafari,’ which is a veggie-lovers lasagna with calaloo and ackee. Reggae-Toni Rigatoni is tossed with sautéed veal (or chicken), mushrooms in a light tomato-curry-cream sauce and toasted almonds. Or try the Ravioli ‘Eccellenza’ which is jumbo cheese-filled ravioli tossed in an alfredo-tomato sauce with baby shrimp sautéed in garlic olive oil and laced with Sambuca Liqueur.
