From fusion to authentic, locally-grown Jamaican fare, these hotels in Montego Bay all showcase exceptional cuisine. Great food is priory-one to make this list, but we also give due attention to the unique settings and stellar service. Also, its worth noting that virtually every hotel in Jamaica offers all-inclusive dining packages -- this means that you can order the lobster and the steak, and not sweat the bill.
Run by Chef Martin Ian Maginley -- winner of the prestigious "Chef of the Caribbean" award for two consecutive years -- the restaurant at the Round Hill hotel focuses on elegant, locally-focused cuisine. Standards have an upscale twist, like jerk chicken wraps, lobster-salad sandwiches with local seasonings, and plantain chips with a sun-dried tomato and olive oil paste. Kids' menus are available, and unlike the great majority of Jamaican resorts, there are several vegetarian options including some with tofu.
Home to seven restaurants, the Half Moon resort offers some of the best all-inclusive dining in Jamaica. The Sea Grape Terrace offers a popular "full Jamaican breakfast" buffet, which includes a mix of ackee and salt fish (the national dish), fried bread dumplings, grilled bananas, yams, and mixed vegetables. The Il Giardino Italian restaurant and the Sugar Mill, an upscale Caribbean restaurant housed within a centuries-old, dramatically lit sugar mill, both feature high-quality entrees.
