Half Moon re-launch their iconic The Sugar Mill Restaurant

This month sees Half Moon, a luxury resort in Montego Bay, re-launch their iconic The Sugar Mill Restaurant, one of the most renowned fine dining establishments in Jamaica. Serving up an array of authentic Jamaican dishes with a modern day twist, The Sugar Mill Restaurant is committed to delivering a zestful culinary experience, cultivating seasonal, locally grown produce from the resort’s herb and vegetable garden.  

Nestled in an alcove beside a 17th century water mill, hidden behind ivy-bestrewn lattices, The Sugar Mill Restaurant overlooks the sprawling Half Moon Golf Course, and pristine white sands of the resort’s private, two-mile stretch of beach.  

Renowned Head Chef Christopher Golding brings culinary flair and a wealth of gastronomic experience to the Sugar Mill kitchen, assiduously marrying natural island flavours and spices to create an alluring menu, bursting with Jamaica’s quintessential dishes. From the delicately flavoured seafood, to the crispy fried jerk chicken rolls with dark rum chutney, the dishes on the menu follow a farm to table approach, making use of the diverse range of herbs and spices grown on the resort. It is these garden-fresh ingredients, combined with traditional recipes and contemporary techniques, that make the Sugar Mill menu unique, and true to its island heritage.  

Following its extensive refurbishment, the restaurant is also introducing a new charcoal cooking technique, with Jamaica’s only Josper charcoal broiler oven, introducing heady, smoky flavours into the dishes. Also available for the first time in Jamaica, and exclusive to The Sugar Mill Restaurant, the signature Wagyu beef makes use of the smokey cooking technique; retaining an unrivalled, melt in the mouth texture.  

The Sugar Mill Restaurant drinks menu features a carefully curated selection of specialty rums aged to perfection, including Appleton Estate, said to be the oldest rum available in Jamaica. Guests can also marvel at one of the region’s finest wine cellars, complementing an award winning wine list that boasts over 150 superb varieties of wine from across the globe.  

Whether guests choose to dine by candlelight indoors, or al fresco on the terrace beside the waterwheel, the restaurant provides an intimate dining experience, and a destination that reflects the zest of Jamaican culture, inviting diners to revel over an authentic menu, brimming with traditional dishes. The Sugar Mill Restaurant is one of Half Moon’s four restaurants, alongside Seagrape Terrace, Il Giardinio and Pepperpot.  

Half Moon is located just ten minutes by car from (MBJ) Sangster International Airport. Virgin Atlantic operates select direct flights from London to Montego Bay.  

A Deluxe Room at Half Moon, A RockResort, starts at $299 (approx. £210) per night, based on two people sharing.
