Lonely Planet review for Norma’s on the Terrace
Although its popularity seems to be on the wane outside the expense-account class, this lovechild of Jamaica’s leading food emissary Norma Shirley is Kingston’s most celebrated restaurant. The seasonal menu explores Caribbean-fusion food with great finesse. Recent gems include the smoked pork loin in teriyaki sauce, red snapper encrusted in herbs in a thyme-and-caper sauce and an exquisite seafood lasagna. Creative salads and desserts (try the English trifle) are not to be missed. Even if a meal is beyond your budget, it’s well worth having a drink on the candlelit terrace.
