“Old world elegance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Beautiful wooden floors in the lobby area give this hotel a nostalgic feel. Food is consistently good and there are a few locations to dine - the outdoor terrace for daily buffets and the Sunday brunch offers a great selection of Jamaican and international dishes. Good service

“Golden Memory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Every meal i have ever had at Terra Nova has been delicious. I am an appetizer girl, so i would recommend the Seafood Thermidor. The staff was professional, thoughtful (it was my birthday, so they sang to me:) and courteous. The look/ design of the venue was perfect to which my friend remarked "we are living our life like it's golden."

“Excellent restaurant in Kingston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

I frequent Terranova quite often. Martin at the main bar will prepare any drink you like to perfection. The restaurant menu is very American with a couple of local favorites. Filet mignon is the best you can find on this island. The staff is always attentive and friendly. The Wednesday seafood buffet and Sunday brunch buffet are both great. This is a must stop while in Kingston.

“Great Food, Good Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Took my wife here for her Bday. We had a nice, quiet and sumptuous meal. It's a bit on the pricey end of the scale but if you want an elegant dining experience I recommend here.
