We enjoyed an exquisite dining experience with friends while in Jamaica. Very personalized service from the time we were picked up by the owner/chef until we were delivered back to our hotel. This is not to be missed. A little on the pricey side but worth it. Excellent, perfectly prepared food and an exquisite wine selection.

Our group of 6 went to Toscanini's for our Valentine's Day dinner. The restaurant is located about a 10 minute drive from the heart of Ocho Rios. The restaurant is beautifully lit up at night and provides for a very romantic setting. You can either eat outside or inside. We ate outside on the patio and it was spectacular. The... More

This is a terrific restaurant outside Ocho Rios with a mouth watering menu and great service. Because they source most of their food locally from organic farms the menu must change regularly so the menu is on a chalk board. Each item is explained by the server which means you can change your mind frequently before finally deciding, which happened... More

We had a great time at this restaurant; we had a great time with chef PG. He recommended snapper that night and it was just what the doctor ordered, accompanied by a tasteful Vermentino. Soft Jamaican breeze and an outdoor setting, who could ask for more.

My wife took me to this restaurant for my birthday and the food was absolutely fantastic. The restaurant is in a lovely setting of an old plantation house, the atmosphere is relaxed & friendly, the staff are attentive and very accommodating with the owner being the star. Although, not part of the restaurant there is an art gallery upstairs which... More

Awesome food and great setting (you cant beat the cured marlin as a starter). Afterwards ask chef PG to show you his collection of Rolling Stones albums. Impressive.

There were six of us who ate here right after the new year. What a cool place, very small, somewhat pricey, but worth it. The owner is the head waiter and he took his time to explain each dish on the menu and would make adjustments to a dish to match our tastes. The interior space is very retro/unique. You... More

An excellent restaurant with consistently high standards over the 15 years I have been coming to Jamaica. Service is exemplary, the wine list is predominantly Italian, and the music and atmosphere relaxing and natural. Food is local and the menu is enticing. Cooking is outstanding, and always delicious. Worth a journey, particularly with the new highway from Kingston. Prof JC.

Nice atmosphere. Excellent food. It was interesting to have the menu read to you. But that gave us the opportunity to hear about the ingredients and ask questions. Great dinner, just pricier than I'm used to. But you only live once. Good service.

The menu is long and original. The waiters didn't hesitate to recommend a drink when asked. I wanted rice with my meal but was told there isn't any. The cream of pumpkin soup was bland for my taste. The ambiance is nice. The chef said hi but I didn't experience him coming over and explaining the menu even though my... More
