Planning a Caribbean-themed event and looking for inspiration on how to create the perfect menu? Look no further than Scotthill Caribbean Cuisine, a family-operated Caribbean and Jamaican fine dining restaurant in Toronto. 

With a menu featuring a wide variety of authentic Caribbean dishes, we know a thing or two about creating the perfect Caribbean menu for any event. Here are our five tips to help you create a memorable and delicious Caribbean menu for your next event.


1. Consider your guests' dietary restrictions

When planning a Caribbean menu, it's essential to keep in mind any dietary restrictions your guests may have. We offer a range of vegan and vegetarian entrees, as well as gluten-free options, to ensure that all of our guests can enjoy our delicious Caribbean cuisine. When planning your menu, make sure to include a variety of options to accommodate all dietary needs.

2. Highlight traditional Caribbean dishes

No Caribbean menu is complete without some of the traditional Caribbean dishes that people know and love. We specialize in authentic Jamaican cuisine, and our menu includes classic dishes such as jerk chicken, oxtail, and curry goat. Including some of these traditional dishes on your menu will give your guests a true taste of the Caribbean.

3. Offer a variety of appetizers

Appetizers are a great way to set the tone for your event and get guests excited about the meal to come. At Scotthill Caribbean Cuisine, we offer a range of appetizers, including our popular Jamaican patties and fried plantains. Including a variety of appetizers on your menu will give your guests a chance to try different flavors and get a sense of the delicious Caribbean cuisine you're serving.

4. Don't forget about drinks and desserts

Drinks and desserts are an important part of any Caribbean menu. We offer a range of traditional Caribbean drinks, including our famous rum punch and ginger beer. Don't forget to ask about our signature drink, The Scotthill.  And for dessert, our sweet potato pudding and Grandma Verdies Jamaican Black Cake are always a hit. Including a variety of drinks and desserts on your menu will ensure your guests leave your event feeling satisfied and happy.

5. Consider catering services

If you're planning a Caribbean-themed event but don't have the time or resources to create the perfect menu yourself, consider using a catering service. At Scotthill Caribbean Cuisine, we've been providing catering services for several years, specializing in breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Our passion for savory Jamaican cuisine combined with our love of creativity and service make us the perfect choice for any Caribbean-themed event.


We are not in the business of pushing food out fast. Therefore, Scotthill Caribbean Cuisine is not a fast food chain. Our goal is to serve you some of the freshest, tastiest Caribbean food you’ve ever experienced. It’s well worth the wait. Whether it’s a take-out lunch, dining in for dinner, or catering a memorable occasion, we are the go-to place for delicious Caribbean cuisine.
