DESTINATIONS jamaica lucea Dining Vitalital


The Vitalital restaurant right off Lucea's main road is run by Rastafarian owners who place special emphasis on food ingredients. The place is a true heaven for vegetarians and vegans - meat-free dishes reign king here and come in multiple delicious varieties.


Savor the island’s rich cultural history through its food. Lucea itself is scarce for dining venues, but venturing to nearby Negril and Montego Bay will provide a wealth of dining options, with the traditional Jamaican "jerk chicken" (as well as other meats and seafood prepared on grill) available at every corner at street food vendors' stalls and finer, sit-in establishments. Do not skip on the Jamaican patties - a variety of local fast food (coco bread stuffed with various fillings) and make sure to sample the local ackee fruit and saltfish.
