The food here is not that good. Too many other places that are much better. The breakfast is one of the worst I ever had,

Melting Pot is a nice little place to eat after a day of travel. You can walk right in and get served. Food is pretty good. So if you want to have a drink or chat at the bar, this is a cool spot to go.

The Melting Pot Restaurant is an excellent dining choice in Kingston. It is located at the Knutsford Court Hotel and is open for breakfast and dinner. For breakfast, there is the usual continental option but for the adventurous, try the Jamaican selection off the Al La Carte menu or just ask one of the very friendly servers in the restaurant....

I eat here for dinner for 7 consecutive days while in Kingston! I must say if not because of this restaurant, I could have changed hotels.

Ate here while staying at the hotel. The staff was great , always smiling. In the Sunday morning, the place can be busy, but the staff tried to accommodate. The food was good. The breakfast menu was limited , but it was fresh and tasty.

Very limited menu, and the food is only mediocre. The service is fairly indifferent; you often have to get up and walk to the bar to request service. Despite this, you'll see a service charge on your bill.

Worst experience ever. Will never go back. Way too expensive for the very poor and inconvenient services. Also, the restaurant was too expensive and the food was not tasty! The receptionist, Andrew was very unfriendly and did not give a receipt when paid. Rate this hotel a zero.

The food was delicious, the portion sizes good, the variety commendable and the staff pleasant. This was like the jewel in the crown for staying at the Knutsford. I ate four meals there and everything they prepared was top-notch. I would definitely recommend this as a good eating spot.

As much as I want to leave a good review for this restaurant its a little difficult, firstly I like to say my breakfast experience was different to my dinner experience. I was staying at the hotel on B&B but there was nothing but a choice of 4 fruits for a vegan so I ordered a vegetable breakfast off the... More
