We were looking for a nice and quiet restaurant that served good food to have dinner at and found Christopher’s on Google. It ticked all the boxes and we were very surprised why the restaurant didn’t have many customers. It could be a lack of...marketing or the location because the food is good and reasonably priced. This restaurant has a lot of potentials that aren’t being maximized. And although the food was good, I do have some suggestions on the food I ordered. For the seafood soup, I hope they scrub the shells of the mussels and don’t serve the fish bones. I know fish bones make a good broth but they only need to serve the broth and not the bones. For the pesto pasta, I suggest they use fresh basil leaves. They used dried, which gives a completely different taste. A lime wedge on the side would also be nice to give more depth to the flavor.More

My friends and I stayed at Hermosa Cove and dined at Christopher's almost every night. Chef Conroy, Anikea, Rochelle and the rest of their amazing team made us feel like we were family. The atmosphere is simply breath taking. The food is fresh and amazing....They even provided a birthday cake from a local bakery for our friends birthday. Everything was above satisfactory. Some of my favorite appetizers and entrees were the smoked marlin, veggie spring rolls and the fresh catch of the day. Christopher’s is a stop you must make if you are in the Ocho Ríos area. I am looking forward to going back and visiting again. The attached photo is the yellowtail snapper which was the catch of the day. I didn’t take many pictures because we all immediately dove straight in.More

We ate at Christopher’s almost every day during our stay at Hermosa Cove. Chef Conroy and the staff were absolutely incredible. They made us feel at home and they were incredibly attentive. The continental breakfast and to order breakfast are delicious (we’re trying to see...how we can order that banana bread if mama kidd’s!). Drinks and dinner was also wonderful - highly recommend any of the seafood dishes, and get all of the apps. This is your chance to eat real Jamaican food if your are visiting from out of the country. We even were able to arrange some time in the kitchen (safely) to make some egg rolls for that night’s dinner.More

It was my Husband's and Father's birthdays we made reservations for 5pm. The ambiance is lovely and you must have a reservation. The restaurant is part of the exquisite Hermosa Cove Hotel, with lush gardens and Treehouse type rooms. The food was good, however many...menu items were not available. the chef compensated by giving us (6 persons) an ice-cream, chocolate cake, Praline sticks, and other delicious goods as dessert (all in 1 container). You could wade in the sea while you wait for dinner. It was a great night. Karen F.More

I ordered a BLT sandwich and it was not very good. Some of the bacon in the sandwich was not cooked all the way through. The sandwich really just didn’t taste like anything, just felt like I was chewing but not tasting anything. The fries...were great though. My last concern is that this place is praising Christopher Columbus as a person despite all the terrible things he did such as eliminating Jamaica’s entire Taino population.More

This restaurant and bar is neatly locating on the beach front with an absolutely stunning sea front view. The accompanying ambiance and vibe is suitably complementary. I'm here every week and or every other week, the food is great! The presentation on a platter is...a bonus. Consistent. Food is delicious. The landscaping - plant decor are uniquely crafted and placed to enhance the island view. I'm mostly impressed with this element - the landscape is great. The staff on property, from the security to the front desk, to the gardeners are extremely hospitable and genuinely warm with a smile. It's def one of our island's gem. Take it from a local, it's an island gem definitely worth a visit.More
