The Caribbean was a great choice. The menu was interesting and the service was very good. Craft 'beer of the day' and the chance to buy (reasonably) some bottles of Jamaican sauces were nice additions to a restaurant with a strong Caribbean influence.

Took three work colleagues. Pleasant and enjoyable atmosphere. The friendly staff. Well lit. Cosy. Small plate menu for dinner nice idea but not cheap. food was fine but thought I would have to stop at McDonalds on the way home. Banana split was overpriced.
