Over two hundred years ago, Jaque de Melo, an adventurous Italian pirate, began pillaging the island of Haiti, from the neighboring island of Tortuga. Jaque de Melo, or Jacmel as the Creole Haitians would call him, fell upon hard times, narrowly escaping death, as his ship floundered and crashed against the rocks in the Caribbean. While hiding out in a small hotel above the Caribbean, Jacmel gradually made friends with the Creole-speaking Haitians. With the help of those voodoo-worshipping islanders, the architecturally-beautiful city of “Jacmel” was created. This restaurant with it’s natural touches of the Caribbean, it’s Creole and French flavored atmosphere, and it’s owner’s infatuation with the mystery and romance of the Caribbean, stolen from the Creole-Italian pirate the name... “Jacmel”.
