We left The Montego Bay Airport late via rental car and ran out of daylight after reaching our nightly destination (Silver Creek Resort). We decided to walk to the closest Restaurant which happen to be Cardifff Hall Restaurant. What a great decision, very comfortable, relaxed and accommodating. Service was very good, menu varied, and portions generous. Turned out to be... More

Although the service is glacially slow, the food is worth the wait. I enjoyed every bit of our meal and the wine was excellent and great value. I would return.

British elegance, fine linens, formal staff uniforms, and well mannered staff is the setting for a great restaraunt experience. The view from the bar is a great place for your first cocktail. The crab cakes were exceptional, and the shrimp pasta most delicious. The tenderloin was cooked medium rare to perfection and garlic mashed potatoes amazing. The portions are generous,... More

I live in Runaway Bay. This property is actually a training school for the service industry run by the government. It is a beautiful property and the government has put a lot of money into it. They tried to make it a 1st Class luxury spa and overpriced everything. Reality has set in and they are now very reasonable and... More

This was our location for Christmas dinner and lunch on Boxing Day. I was rather impressed. First and foremost, this is a training site for the Hospitality Industry and the majority of the staff are students. Service can be slow but the staff are earnest and pleasant. Our affair was catered and the food prepared at the location was creative... More

Excellent ambiance with impeccable service. Wait staff is super cordial and efficient. Presentation of meals was top notch. Taste and quality followed suit. Set up on a hilly setting away from beach etc. Located in the suburbs...

Beautiful view of ocean, nice rooms. 1/3 mile (15min walk up steep hill). Friendly staff. They recommended a restaurant that was closed (they hadn't made reservations though were asked to). Hotel restaurant seemed understaffed. At one dinner we waited 1 hour (probably a little longer) to have undercooked ravioli with no sauce $20 US.
