The dishes were faithfully and impressively replicated locally by the Chef at the Terrace restaurant much to the delight of both local Jamaican and Japanese patrons.

Round Hill's Wine Program Wins Wine Spectator 2014 Award of Excellence

Round Hill is pleased to announce the receipt of Wine Spectator’s 2014 Award of Excellence for our wine program. This recognition honors the extensive work that our Food & Beverage department has accomplished to achieve a robust wine program that highlights diversity in brand, region and varietal, while selecting wines that pair seamlessly with our fresh Caribbean cuisine and align with our mission to use organic and sustainable ingredients. We sat down with Food & Beverage Director Hillary Stewart to dive a little deeper into what makes the wine program here at Round Hill so unique. Hillary Stewart - Director of Food & Beverage at Round Hill “Because our dining is primarily outdoors and we have such tropical temperatures year round, and in keeping with our ‘light, clean, contemporary, Caribbean cuisine’, we choose wines that are mostly light- to medium-bodied,” she states, “and the whites are generally crisp and refreshing with floral, citrus and fruit notes.”... > Read full post.

Celebrating the New Montego Bay Cultural Centre

The up and coming Montego Bay Cultural Centre is near and dear to Round Hill's heart, as our very own Josef Forstmayr (who chairs the 14-member Montego Bay Arts Council) has been a driving force behind this $62 million rehabilitation of the 12-year old Montego Bay Civic Centre. "There will be a gift shop, a bistro which will display the best of Jamaican food; there will be an artisan village where we will have artisans in residence that will do productive work there; there will be poetry reading, music, dance.....," an elated Forstmyar told the Jamaica Observer West. Parts of the new centre will serve as a branch of the National Museum as well as the National Gallery, and other improvements include the installation of elevators, generators, water pumps, security cameras, and major repairs to sanitary conveniences.
