Couples Sans Souci has earned highest marks for its magnificent cuisine prepared by award winning chefs and served with gracious hospitality and a smile. More culinary awards have been won by Couples Sans Souci chefs than any resort on the island. Dining is indeed a special treat at Couples Sans Souci, from gourmet dishes in the white-glove Ristorante Casanova to delicious fresh-made bistro dishes at Palazzina Restaurant, to jerk chicken and spicy Jamaican specialties at our beachside Bella Vista. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served both ala carte and buffet. The only thing that will never vary is the quality. It is always excellent. The weekly Jamaican Beach Party is a cultural medley of colors, music and traditional delicacies while the Friday Night Starlight Gala is a spectacular culinary showpiece.
At Couples Sans Souci, we’ve set the bar for excellence in Caribbean dining with more culinary awards than any other Caribbean resort. Our chefs are trained in European, French, Italian, Caribbean, and Continental Cuisine. The 2005 Conde Nast Gold List ratings showed our dining experience the best of any resort in Jamaica.
Ristorante Casanova The words “La Dolce Vita”—living with passion, surrounding oneself with the resplendent... aptly describe the new menu and surroundings at this marvelous restaurant that is well-known throughout all of Jamaica. The varied menu is a “fantasia selection” of classic Italian cuisine taken from the hills of Tuscany to the craggy cliffs of Sicily. Modern and traditional Italian dishes mix with a dash of Marco Polo discoveries. The rack of lamb, tinged with a light peppercorn crust and served with a Rosemary jus is one small sample of how the inventive menu balances with such classic Italian pasta entrees as a mouth-watering Luchesse Calzoncini, stuffed with ricotta cheese and garlic spinach. Required Dress Code -- Ladies: "semi-formal" -- Gentlemen: collar shirt, long pants, dress shoes / closed shoes. Reservations required.
Palazzina Restaurant Hearty bistro fare from around the world is featured here in a festive sea breeze setting. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the food includes both buffet and table service and ranges from fresh omelets to coconuts to escargot. The fun is in the bold mix of bistro-style sauces to wasabi on grilled vegetables. Always served by a warm and smiling staff, you will certainly enjoy your time spent at Palazzina either inside or on our wonderful terrace. But, make sure to save room for our delectable dessert selection from our pastry chef who was named “Best in Jamaica” in 2004.
Bella Vista is where one goes to have a moonlit dinner right on the beach. Soothed by melodies of our traditional Jamaican Mento Band, the delicious menu of authentic Jamaican specialties and unequalled atmosphere makes this spot a favorite among guests. Casual dress, no reservations required.
