Norma's on the Terrace

One of Jamaica's most well known chefs and entrepreneurs, Norma Shirley runs Norma's on the Terrace, a swank restaurant that emphases Jamaican fare with a twist.


The menu, which varies season-to-season is creative with novel adaptations from native Jamaican cuisine. The winners undoubtedly are Jamaican chowder with crabmeat, shrimp, conch, and lobster, sizzling grilled whole red snapper coated with herbs and served with a thyme-and-caper sauce, and grilled smoked pork loin in a teriyaki or ginger sauce, served with caramelized apples.

Norma's on the Terrace has a focus on ever-popular Jamaican food that's so yummy some people pencil a second visit into their itineraries. They are open for business during both dinner and lunch, so make time to stop by; you could find a new favorite food.


Set up below the wide porticos of the gallery surrounding the famous Devon House, Norma’s on the Terrace is a classy spot to eat a leisurely meal. The old, worn-out gardens have been spruced up into posh and clean cut English-like lands.
