Round Hill enchants guests and tempts palates with an abundance of dining pleasures. Our James Beard award-winning Executive Chef, Martin Maginley, and his talented team showcase the finest local ingredients in a variety of custom-crafted dishes inspired by Jamaica's bounty and the cultural influences that continually evolve the palate of this region. Recognized with Wine Spectator’s “Award of Excellence” in 2014, Round Hill’s impressive and eclectic wine list compliments the modern Caribbean cuisine featured throughout our dining venues.
Rise and shine each morning with a hearty, healthy breakfast served in the restaurant, highlighting fresh Jamaican fruit, made to order omelettes, custom-blended smoothies, and a variety of traditional Jamaican dishes. If you’ve booked a villa, enjoy a cooked to order breakfast by your dedicated housekeepers on your private terrace as you enjoy coffee or tea and sweeping views.
Midday, venture to the Seaside Terrace or the Beach or Pool Bar for an informal yet delectable lunch featuring a variety of fresh salads and wraps or indulgent burgers and pastas. Wash it down with a Red Stripe or a Rum Punch and settle back into your beach chaise for a heavenly nap.
Afternoon Tea is served in the lounge, and showcases traditional finger foods such as cucumber sandwiches, fresh fruit and an array of fine desserts. Mingle with guests and enjoy shade from the afternoon sun as you delight in a selection of teas, chilled water and coffee.
Evenings at Round Hill are an occasion to dress in casual, elegant island fashion and truly enjoy your nightly dining experience. Depending on the evening, you may dine al fresco by the moonlit sea on our Seaside Terrace, savour the flavors and show of wood-fire cooking in the open kitchen at The Grill, or go barefoot in the sand on our torch-lit beach for one of our special dining events.
The dimly lit Cocktail Bar affords the prime spot for a pre-dinner cocktail and to watch the golden sun set over calm waters. Offering signature hand-crafted cocktails, wines by the glass and an elegant appetizer bar menu, the ambiance is enhanced with an array of black and white photos of years past and the beautiful sounds of the piano.
The Grill is our rooftop restaurant located above the bar and terrace, offering panoramic, seaside views and ocean breezes. The décor is in keeping with our classic aesthetic of relaxed luxury. The simplistic, whitewashed décor is accented with black and white wood cut prints by Jamaican artist, Albert Huie, adding a touch of historic perspective to the dining experience.
The Grill features the only indoor, wood-fired grill on island, using local, indigenous logwood. The wood imparts a touch of smoky richness and is used in a mixture of torched wood for earthy flavour and sweet wood to round out the finish. The open kitchen allows guests a glimpse of the busy chefs as they prepare the evening’s meal.
The Modern Caribbean theme of the resort’s cuisine at The Grill is simple, locally produced (where possible) and sustainable. The focus remains on sustainably-grown, humane and organic products. Much of the produce is sourced from the surrounding area or our very own organic garden.
Seafood is as fresh and local as its gets, sourced from the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico and nearby Jamaica waters. Daily fresh offerings are usually Snapper, Grouper, Mahi Mahi and local Caribbean spiny lobster.
Celebrating award-winning chef Martin Maginley’s philosophy of ‘Light Clean Caribbean Cuisine’, The Restaurant at Round Hill is delighted to offer an exquisite table d’hote dining experience on the resort’s upstairs dining terrace.
Promising an intimate dining experience, the restaurant is not open to small children or large groups and has limited seating, accommodating a maximum of six persons per table and a total capacity of 40 persons. Reservations are mandatory.
Chef Maginley and his talented culinary team will showcase the finest and freshest Jamaican ingredients, including organic herbs and vegetables grown on the resort’s on-property organic garden as well as the best of the island’s bounty procured from local farmers.
Featuring set daily menus as well as a vegetarian menu, diners will be treated to an exciting array of delicacies including Grilled Tuna Fillet with Caribbean Sofrito, Crispy Local Pear and Cilantro Lime Crema, Lemongrass Caribbean Lobster Bisque, Beef Wellington of Short Rib with Sauteed Pole Beans and Natural Caramelized Au Jus and mouth-watering desserts such as Pineapple Tarte Tatin served with the chef’s signature Scotch Bonnet Ice Cream.
Aiming to deliver a refined and exquisite experience Chef Maginley promises “classical cuisine … the best flavours and tastes of the 1950s elevated to suit the modern day palate.”
