Jade Mountain Receives Three-Toque Gault Millau Rating

Foodies, take note: The culinary team at Jade Mountain, under the leadership of chef de cuisine Elijah Jules and guided by consulting chef Allen Susser, has been awarded a coveted Gault Millau rating, making it only one of four restaurants in the Eastern Caribbean to receive a three-Toque rating. 

The distinguished guide noted "Chef Elijah runs an excellent kitchen brigade with high gastronomic standards," with the dishes presented in a "refined manner, perfectly cooked and combined in a harmonious way that brings out the best of the ingredients." Fruit and vegetables are grown in the resort's own organic farm.

Gault & Millau, a high-end French restaurant guide, was founded by two restaurant critics, Henri Gault and Christian Millau in 1969. The rating system is based purely on the quality of the food; service, price and ambiance are assessed separately. Gault Millau restaurant ratings are signified by a chef's Toque (hat) with a maximum of five Toques. 

Only a select few restaurants have received the top Gault Millau rating. In the Eastern Caribbean, there are only four restaurants with a three-Toque rating, according to the guide: Jarad at Le Toiny and La Case de L'Isle in Saint Barthélemy and Orchidea in Guadeloupe, in addition to Jade Mountain.
