Restaurants in Montego Bay

Situated in Montego Bay, this casual outdoor eatery is widely considered the best place on the island for authentic jerk pork and chicken.

A great place to stop for a roadside snack, the Yam Centre is located west of Mandeville on Route A2. Built atop a small hill, the centre is a collection of 12 tiny food stalls with names like Graney Razor One Stop and Shine Head One Stop (owned by a bald man).

Made almost entirely of driftwood, the thatched-roof Pelican Bar is set on stilts on a small sandbar about half a mile offshore in Parotee Bay. Part bar and part restaurant, the circular structure is accessible only by boat and is furnished with low wooden benches and windmill-powered lights.

Chef Martin Maginley abides by the motto "Grow what you eat and eat what you grow." Fittingly, the theme of his weekly banquet is 100 percent local food.
