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 offers Jamaican food so good, those who try it return again and again. Diners are welcome to come by to enjoy both dinner and lunch, so make time to try it.


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.


This restaurant is on the premises of Devon House, which is located in Portmore, a city in Jamaica.

Consider merging your restaurant visit with excellent sightseeing opportunities by visiting one of the region's many close-by attractions, including Mandela Park.

A draw for golfing guests, the area surrounding this restaurant offers at least one outdoor activity, Constant Spring Golf Club, which is located just a quick trip away.
