Additional Noteworthy Features

All Included, All Unlimited, All The Time


  • Discover Diversity. The Bayside Restaurant represents the culinary diversity of an equally diverse locale. With flavorsome Caribbean cuisine, guests from near and far can enjoy Bayside by day for buffet-style breakfast and lunch; and bask in its enchanting essence with dining by night for an exquisite a la carte dinner. The character of Bayside's terrace setting overlooking the pier and Caribbean Sea is charming. Watch the sailboats pass by, indulge in a candlelit dinner, or view the fiery sunset while the cool, sea breeze washes over you.

  • Lady Eleanor used her collection of exotic recipes and her massive Georgian dining room to create the most lavish banquets Jamaican colonial society had ever seen. Her recipes cemented her place in culinary history and she became known as the best cook in the Caribbean! Eleanors cuisine is served in an atmosphere reminiscent of Eleanor's very own great house dining room so that her legacy as the best cook in the Caribbean will never be forgotten. The enchanting, old-world charm of Eleanors captivates guests from the moment they walk through the doors. But it's the delectable cuisine inspired by this 18th century matriarch that leaves a lasting impression with a calypso of flavors such as Tamarind Grilled Beef Tenderloin (tamarind-infused red wine reduction), Roasted Pumpkin Soup, Caribbean Grilled Lobster, Jamaican Jerk Chicken, West Indian Curried Lamb, and Rasta Pasta (penne pasta tossed with chef's choice of vegetables, ackee, spinach, and coconut cream sauce).
Café de Paris
  • Discover a Little Bit of Paris in the Caribbean. Whitehouse has always been known for its 365 beaches and romantic settings. Now, Café de Paris is helping to make it known for fine, Parisian treats. When the café concept was first introduced in Paris in the 17th century, people fell in love with the neighborhood feel of the café, which over the years became a place to relax. The same semblance is found at Café de Paris, the social pulse of Whitehouse. Flowers, bright colors, and lovely patio furniture with umbrellas adorn the outside of the café. But the chic décor and romantic ambience aren't the only things to savor at this superb café.
  • Discover the Lombardia Region of Italy. Italian gastronomy is made up of 21 diverse regional cuisines. Mario's draws its cooking style from the beautiful region of Lombardia, where E.A.. Mario, grandfather to the restaurant's first authentic Italian chef, was born to a family of humble means. Growing up in a family of six in a small apartment behind his father's barbershop, everyone in his family needed to pull their weight to get by. Mario was in charge of preparing dinner and his delicious dishes would bring his whole family together every night. Mario instilled that same sense of passion for his love of food and family into his children and grandchildren.
