Description: At Christopher's we don't just feed appetites - we feed souls. Our signature restaurant serves up locally sourced gourmet fare on an open-air veranda with ocean-view tables.Christopher's acclaimed Chef Conroy specializes in original dishes that capture the essence of Jamaica: callaloo with Scotch bonnet drizzle, pimento-smoked beef tenderloin, translucent plantain chips, curried goat ravioli and, of course, grilled lobster. Conroy's dishes embrace the freshest local ingredients and the bounty of the Caribbean. You can watch local fishing boats deliver the catch of the day or join the chef in selecting fruits, vegetables and herbs from the resort's lush gardens. Start your day with our Island Breakfast - handmade muffins and a succulent fruit plate. In the evening dress up or down for a dining experience called "by far one of the best that the island has to offer."

There are few restaurants in Ocho Rios that have a chef that visits everyone personally, prepares items to order, and then checks to see if you like it...Chef Conroy is amazing, old school restaurant practices. Food is wonderful. If you live in town please try it! If your a visitor please try it. The location is beautiful, and peaceful. Sit outside on the veranda overlooking the sea, and have a nice chat with Chris the bartender.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to eat in the enchanted forest? Well you don't have to wonder anymore. The restaurant is tucked neatly away in the most beautiful shrubbery rite on the ocean. The food is amazing an inventive and has great customer service. Everything goes hand in hand here, cant wait to go back again.

Chef Conroy does a great job of making you feel welcomed and special while in his restaurant. While we were at Hermosa Cove hotel he was very helpful, and very accommodating of our requests and questions. We tried the ox tail, goat curry, acke with saltfish, jerk sausage the red bean soup. All of it was delicious. While in Ocho Rios we did want to try several restaurants outside of our hotel but it was very tempting to just stay in and dine at Christopher's. All the ingredients are fresh and even some are right out of the plants and trees within the hotel walls.

The wait staff was very friendly and the food was extremely fresh. Christopher's would be another reason for me to choose to stay at Hermosa Cove hotel as the food is very authentic and beautifully prepared. Also it does not hurt that Chef Conroy adds a personal touch and makes a point to come and talk to all his guests.

This is a brilliant restaurant! I would eat here even if I was not staying at the Hotel. Very highly recommended.

Chef Conroy prepares wonderful dishes. He has an attention to detail that further punctuates his awareness of up-tempo local cuisine. He made a family-style dinner for us as we stayed at Hermosa Cove (site of Christopher's). This dinner was special for all of us and made more so by the Jamaican traditional meal with a bit of flare.

His breakfast omelets are beautiful, as well. Then there are the home made pastries and breads by Miss Kitt. Fantastic.

And for anyone visiting Ocho Rios but not staying at Hermosa Cove, Christophers is open to all. Sitting on the deck overlooking the Cove's private beach is worth the meal, but the food is done up to perfection--making it a great night out, I am sure--we had a few :)

Chef Conroy’s inspired interpretations of local, organic cuisine could only come from a native chef with a world-class culinary pedigree. With that rare combination of presentation and flavor, Christopher's is an unparalleled experience.
