The Falls restaurant was established in 2017 on the campus of St John Bosco Career Advancement Institute (at the time known as St John Bosco Children's Home). An extension of Bosco's well established hospitality and culinary arts vocational training program, The Falls is now a gastronomy destination for locals and travelers nestled in the hills of Manchester parish in Central Jamaica. All proceeds support the educational and vocational training programs on campus which is run by the Religious Sisters of Mercy in Jamaica.
