Regarding cuisine, we know Jamaica is one of the most popular, with its easily identifiable taste and appearance. Most of our dishes are homey and warm, perfect for casual get-togethers. This might be why most local restaurants are also very casual.

Now, whether you live in Jamaica, just visit from time to time, or youโ€™re planning your first trip, you may be looking forward to a night of pure elegance and class at a fine dining restaurant. I am about to share with you those I consider the best in Jamaica.

Sugar Mill Restaurant- Montego Bay

Known for creating distinctive fusion dishes by fusing traditional Jamaican cuisine with inspiration from around the world, Sugar Mill is regarded as one of the best restaurants in Jamaica.

It is an offering provided by the luxurious Half Moon Resort and can be found in Montego Bay on Spring Farm Drive. The restaurant is tucked away inside the Rose Hall Sugar Plantation's Running Gut Estate boundaries. Encircled by tall palm trees, dining at the Sugar Mill affords you a breathtaking vista.

Although their dinners can be a little pricey, the cuisine, atmosphere, and service are all worthwhile.

Marguerites - Montego Bay

With over 40 years of experience, this sophisticated fine-dining seafood restaurant is situated on the busy trendy strip of Montego Bay. They serve excellent cuts of meat and fresh seafood on a very varied menu.

Built in 1955 as a private property by the sea, it was acquired by a group of friends in 1979 and converted into a restaurant. It bears the name of the original Executive Chef. Marguerites is still one of the most popular eateries in the area today.

Marguerites is renowned for having an excellent wine selection that goes well with its cuisine. The Wine Spectator Award of Excellence was given to them in 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Additionally, they received Trip Advisor's Traveler's Choice award.

Evita's Italian Restaurant- Ocho Rios

Since its 1989 opening, Evita's has been known for its excellent service, ambience, design, view, and Italian and Jam-Italian "fun" concoctions. Situated with a view of Ocho Rios, it is housed in a real 1860 Historic Gingerbread House.

Everything is ready when you order it. Celebrities still attend Evita's because they adore the eatery's romantic ambience and affordable prices. Now and again, there is live entertainment, usually with a guest star.

Mille Fleurs is a section of the Port Antonio-based Mocking Bird Hill Hotel. You will find the restaurant to have a candlelit dinner in a charming, romantic environment. The majority of patrons arrive early to sip pre-dinner cocktails on the balcony and take in the sunset.

The "innovative Caribbean" cuisine on the ever-changing Mille Fleurs menu has dishes such as jerk rabbit, chicken in June plum sauce, pizza with a bammy foundation, and fish with spicy mango shrimp sauce.

The Portland Parish, which changes its menu every year to take advantage of an abundance of fresh vegetables, is the source of the menu's seasonal and local components.
