Reasons You Should Visit A Fine Dining Restaurant In Jamaica

There are many reasons you should choose a fine dining restaurant in Jamaica while on vacation:

  • The décor and ambience are usually beautiful, elegant and romantic even. Couple that, with the fact that fine dining restaurants are usually quiet, which makes it the perfect setting for a honeymoon or other romantic settings. No loud outburst from a table that's too close.
  • Food selection is usually more unique. Fine dining restaurants hire highly certified chefs that usually create the dishes on the menu themselves. The dishes are usually inspired by a combination of cuisines which makes things a little more interesting.
  • There is a formally dress code which is the perfect reason to dress up. Although most of them are not extremely strict, very casual attire is prohibited. Shorts and flip-flops are a definite no. An elegant fine dining restaurant is the perfect reason to get dressed up and wear that dress or suit you haven't had a reason to wear in years.

Montego Bay is one of Jamaica's major tourist destinations and it has a wide range of options available for your ultimate vacation experience. However, the town is quite vibrant and the majority of the restaurants are too and you might need a little help finding the fine dining restaurant options in the area.

So if you are coming to Montego Bay or even considering it, here is a list of 5 fine dining restaurants in that I think you will enjoy.

Fine Dining Restaurants In Jamaica - Montego Bay


Located on the bustling Montego Bay hip strip is a sophisticated fine-dining seafood restaurant that has been in business for over 40 years. They have a very eclectic menu of fresh seafood and premium cuts of meat.

It was originally a private residence along the seaside that was built in 1955 but was bought by a group of friends who turned it into a restaurant in 1979. It was named after the first Executive Chef.

Today Marguerites is still one of the most sought after restaurants in town. Marguerites is known for its great wine menu that perfectly complements its menu. They have been awarded the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence in 2014,2016,2017,2018, 2019 and 2020. They have also been awarded Trip Advisor's Traveller's Choice Award in these same years as well.
