Let's be honest, you probably don't call your mother as often as you should. I bet you get those texts that say, "You remember me? Still love You, Mom." You might live far away, or are just too preoccupied with work and your social life to spend time with the woman who raised you. But Mother's Day is here and it’s your chance for redemption. 

Restaurants are throwing all kinds of special deals at you to get you in the door. Maybe you want to do a classic Mother's Day brunch with mimosas and French toast. Or if brunch isn't your thing, and you and Mom are looking to chow down on some pasta or steak at a reasonable price. Whatever you're into, here's a handy list of restaurants suitable for Mother's Day. And remember not to ask Mom to foot the bill (as usual).

Grog Shoppe Restaurant
Nothing says “I love you” more than a delicious meal that lets you devour all your favourites. The Grog Shoppe Restaurant in Kingston offers Al Fresco dining at its best. They serve Jamaican and international cuisines with a memorable difference and food cooked with a lot of love. Try their famous boneless jerk pork. It is not too spicy and is delicious! 

Little Ochie
Get mommy all dolled up and discover this hidden secret in South Manchester. Little Ochie is one of Jamaica’s greatest hidden treats. Sitting on the South Coast in a sleepy fishing village called Alligator Pond, its fresh fish in amazing recipes has made Little Ochie a thriving, bustling business thriving since its opening in 1989. Whatever you order is sure to be amazing!

The HouseBoat Grill
Moored in the calm waters of the Montego Bay Marine Park Fish Sanctuary, the HouseBoat Grill offers a unique setting for an intimate, one of a kind dining experience.  Enjoy dinner upstairs on the upper deck or by the waterside. There you can be entertained by the nightly aquatic ballet performed by Snook & Tarpon game fish. 

Pegasus Hotel
Your mom deserves the world! So, the least you can do is take her to indulge and splurge at the iconic Pegasus Hotel. They are serving a special Mother’s Day brunch from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. that includes a scrumptious spread of salads, soups, plater, hot food, carvery and dessert stations. There will also be a live band and activities for children.  

Want to treat Mom to greatness this Mother’s Day? Try Toscanini Restaurant in Ocho Rios.  It’s hard to imagine finding authentic Italian cuisine on an island 5,000 miles away from Italy, but Toscanini is as close as it gets to the real thing. The restaurant is an impeccable combination of outstanding cuisine and service. Located the floor below the beautiful Harmony Hall Art Gallery, the restaurant adds elegance to this fully restored 19th century manse of British colonial architecture. 

Boon Hall Oasis
Is mommy a nature lover? Create a picture-perfect moment with her at the Boon Hall Oasis nestled below the majestic slopes of Norbrook Mountain in St. Andrew. Here, nature is abundant in foliage and the running waters of the river just a few feet away. It’s a great setting to enjoy their special Mother’s Day menu, completed with their usual sumptuous desserts.
