Alongside being titled a Creative City of Music, Kingston boasts the seventh largest natural harbour in the world.
Whether it’s to blow off some steam after work or just to catch up with friends, we know you’re looking for a spot to simply unwind and enjoy the here and now!What started off as a place for friends to hang on a Friday afternoon behind the popular Farm Market, grilling on a make shift grill. It evolved into one of Kingston’s premier eateries after competing in the Jack Daniels BBQ Competition for fun and then crowned the Jack Daniels King of BBQ. More than 10 years later we still serve our Championship ribs but most of all our authentic Jerk Pork and chicken are known for their top quality.

Owner Pietro Giuliani, no stranger to Jamaica, has been visiting the island for a decade. Now settled, complete with a Jamaican wife, he has realized his dream of opening an authentic pizzeria. "Pizza is street food in Italy and I wanted that kind of concept where all can afford to enjoy it." And that he has managed to do at the $280 per slice price point — for by Saturday when we returned the head count since the Thursday opening was over 700. Not bad considering Giuliani was merely gauging the response to his fresh artisan pizzas.

Having gained his wealth from gold mining in South America, Stiebel was among three wealthy Jamaicans who constructed elaborate homes during the late 19th century at the corner of Trafalgar Road and Hope Road. This corner fittingly became known as the Millionaire’s Corner.

As fusion restaurant, Nirvanna strikes an aesthetic balance of ethnic and contemporary with Moroccan design elements accenting a definitive rich, Indian palace ambienece. "I wanted a unique representation of faded frescos of old caves, and was thrilled to find the perfect tiles, which we used on the tables. Our white onyx bar is our focal point and being a transparent stone, it is spectacular to see with the lights illuminated from the inside,' Mahek speaks proudly of the design of her new eatery, which is already gaining a strong foothold in Kingston's culinary arena.

Pastry Passions opened its first retail bakery location at the Sovereign Centre in Kingston, Jamaica on January 11, 2007. It was definitely off to a rocky start, as there was no refrigeration, so they had to store their eggs in the pastry display cases in full view of the customers, along with the baked products for sale. Pastry Passions has come a long way since then. We are happy to report that not only does Pastry Passions have refrigeration, but it also has established its strong reputation as the best retail bakery in Jamaica, some even say the world!Our vision is to be the destination of choice globally for all birthday cakes and other baked products and desserts, while still creating the unique atmosphere of authentic, unpretentious, cozy neighborhood bakeries.Our best sellers include the hummingbird cake, red velvet cake, black forest cake, rich chocolate cake, milkshakes and Bailey’s Irish Cream cheesecake.
