dining at the Sunset Jamaica Grande

Can anyone tell me what the food was like at the restaurants at the SSJG? How many dinners are you allowed to book? How far in advance can you make them? Is breakfast only offered at a Buffet or is their a sit down restaurant that you can order breakfast?

Food at SSJG was tasty...but soooo repetative it that it totally spoiled the dining experience. No seafood at all at the buffet. The same fish for everything - curried, brown stewed etc. Boring Boring Boring.

There are 2 restaurants... One indoor and One outdoor. You need to make reservations. Resturants are usually busy and reservations are needed to be made ahead of time - doubt you can get it the same day- I guess it depends on how busy the resort is though. Pretty sure you can go as many times as you want.

Not sure, I never tried :)

If they give you a hard time, just tell them that you are not satisfied with the food at the buffet.

Is there a sit down breakfast option or only breakfast buffet?

You can book as many times as you want but you have to book for the next or 2 days in advance ( not sure what it was). We ate at all 3 a la cartes and loved them all. The buffet is repetitive and is the only option for breakfast. The snack bar had good burgers and fish at lunch time.....We ate at the Italian 2 times and loved the South Beach. The asian was also very good.

If you are booked with Air Canada Vacations they will pre book the 3 Ala Cartes for you and you get a the restaurant vouchers slipped under your door. You can also book for extra.

We are flying with Air Canada booked thru Trip Central. How do you pre book with them? Do you recommend trying each ala carte? What kind of food is the South Beach ala carte?
