Slow Food with a Jamaican Twist
Voted “the Best Restaurant in Port Antonio 2014” by Trip Advisor
Al fresco dining at Port Antonio’s number one restaurant, Mille Fleurs allows you the chance to enjoy the spectacular vistas of Port Antonio, the Caribbean Sea and the lush gardens of Hotel Mockingbird Hill whilst savouring authentic and creative cuisine.
Menus feature creative Caribbean cuisine with a Continental flair that will surprise and seduce. Even the most pampered of palates love the restaurant’s fusion of Caribbean and European flavours, and why we are so regularly and enthusiastically praised on TripAdvisor and in other travel guides.
Almost everything is home-made. The focus is on highlighting local and seasonal high quality produce, supporting local community projects for fair and organic produce where possible as well as sourcing from our own vegetable garden. The innovative and delicious dishes are prepared with love and passion putting a new spin on traditional fare. Enjoy a daily changing menu offering a selection of surprises with fish, seafood, meat and vegetarian options. This is ‘Slow Food’, light, fresh and tasty and full of flavour!

“With an ever-changing menu created by owners Shireen and Barbara, fabulous cooks in their own rights, a divine intervention takes place as each dish has in its birth the ‘clean’, ‘fresh’ and ‘healthy’ stamp but these ladies do not stop there…The care and effort of finding that special mix of particular ingredients, the choice of herbs and spices – all drizzled with that ‘je ne sais quoi’ of true spirit, Jamaican local cuisine fuses with time-honoured classics of the world, and a fantasy flight of aromas and tastes that dance on the palate as easily as the Maroon drums beat in the distance on dark tropical nights, takes place…every morsel belonging together as if in time immemorial. If you’re smart, just catch the next flight to Hotel Mockingbird and tell me I lie! “
