As the Jamaican capital city, Kingston is filled with business places, many of which are food conglomerates and local restaurants. It can sometimes be extremely hard to find the best ones and word of mouth might be the best option when searching. I have personally experienced this difficulty and have only learned of some of the best through experience. From the many options these are the few that I believe are some of the best options.

Tea Tree Crêperie


One of the best thing about this restaurant is that one can have breakfast at any time of the day. They serve in price worthy portions and have one of the best menu which incorporates pancakes, eggs, soups, salads, etc. They are also one of the only places to sell crepes in Jamaica.







Blue Window Restaurant


Noted for its breakfast, brunch and themed cuisine at nights, this restaurant’s daily lunch buffet is perfect if you would like to have lunch and dessert at the same time. Its lunch buffet is offered from Monday to Friday, brunch on Sundays and on the grill every Tuesday.




Usain Bolt’s Tracks & Records


Providing a unique Jamaican dining experience, Usain Bolt’s Tracks and Records provide a unique Jamaican dining experience. The restaurant is located on Constant Spring Road and incorporates Jamaica’s popular jerk chicken, jerk pork and other dishes such as Red Stripe barbecued wings, codfish fritters, burgers, etc. 



Chilitos JaMexican Food


If you want Mexican food with a Jamaican twist then Chilitos is definitely the place you’d want to dine. The restaurant attracts a lot of customers whose favourites from the menu are often margarita and doritos. It provides to its customers a relaxing environment and is located on 88 Hope Road, Kingston.
