RESTAURANTS 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.
THE GRILL 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.
THE RESTAURANT AT ROUND HILL 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.
