Okay, so this recommendation is purely based on the rum selection and the service of the top man Marvin. I like going to places that have a large selection of a particular drink because it gives me the opportunity to try something new. However, where do you start when presented with so many bottles of rum. Well, you started by... More

Me and my partner came here for food and enjoyed our experience immensely. We had the squid to start which was very tasty. We then shared the Mixed Grill for 2 which was cooked well and tasted delicious. The service was brilliant and food came out in good time. During our visit we enjoyed some of the cocktails they had... More

Went for a drink with a friend on Friday evening. The drinks were really good, both mojito and daiguiri. The bartender was quick but attentive. Yes the place is quite loud, however it did not disturb us as it was Friday. Will be back to try more drinks.

We turned up without a reservation on Friday night about 8pm looking for a table for two. They found us a table after a little umm-ing and ahh-ing. The restaurant was very loud and I'm a vegan so it probably was the best choice of restaurant. However, the waiter was very nice, polite and always attentive. I'm not the biggest... More

Me and my boyfriend are great fans of the Bounty Hunter cocktail served at Cottons and recently we decided to try their food. We had the peppered squid, doubles, curry mutton and spicy buttermilk chicken & ribs. We're both big foodies and can honestly say that this was one of the loveliest meals we've had so far in London. Would... More

Although the reggae rum punch was on the happy hour menu at the time of ordering the waiter said this is not on this menu, was disappointed but tried dark n stormy which was nice... More

The is not exactly an abundance of decent Caribbean restaurants where you can sit down and enjoy a good meal. This welcoming establishment has a well stocked bar and can make a decent cocktail, run based of course. As for the food, I had a jerk meat mixed grill consisting of jerked pork ribs, chicken pieces, salt beef brisket and... More

A quite Sunday early evening meal out turned into the best Sunday night we have had in a VERY long time (must be getting old!). We decided to head for Camden for a quiet meal out as I wanted a day off from cooking. Not sure what we wanted, so we parked up and started walking along Chalk Farm Road.... More
