Best Places To Go For A First Date In Kingston

Choosing where you go on your first date can be hard. To help I asked my friends over on Instagram for the best places to go on a first date in Kingston.

In order to keep the local economy afloat. the Jamaican government is slowly allowing industries to reconvene. That means, churches and bars are open as well as most other establishments.

People are going back to the office. It’s almost as if things are going back to normal.

Speaking of normal, I don’t know about you guys but I’m longing to have a date night outside my home. While I’ve been waiting I’ve been readying my bucket list with date ideas.

These suggestions were polled and provided by real Jamaicans.

First Date Ideas in Kgn

Restaurant Date

I love a good restaurant date. It’s simple and allows you a good opportunity to talk with your date. Here are a few of the recommendations made by my Instagram friends.

Ribbiz Ocean

Currently there are two Ribbiz locations in Kingston. I’d consider Ribbiz Ocean to be the more romantic of the two. This restaurant features a view from the Kingston harbour into the Caribbean Sea.

Terra Nova

Terra Nova Hotel Brunch

An upscale hotel located in the middle of the city with all the trimmings if a classy and expensive date. You can expect premium customer service and delightful dishes.

Sora Japanese Sky Cuisine

Another restaurant with an impeccable view. But this time you’ll be overlooking the city. Welcome to Asian dining in style with a partner with similar tastes. They’ll be impressed.

Somewhere with a pool


To go go-karting in Kingston you’ll need to head to palisadoes.

Get Cultured

Take on somewhere historical. Jamaica is full of historical sites to visit and Kingston has quite a few. Make it educational and you’ll have loads to talk about throughout your date.

Picnic at Hope Gardens


This one is outside of Kingston but a good walk on the beach is undeniably romantic. Add a beachside meal to that and you’re already on your way to his/her heart I’m sure.
