This colourful eatery evokes the sights, sounds and flavours of the Caribbean for the offspring of ageing Notting Hillbillies. Cross the threshold and you’ll hear sunny reggae beats blaring from the stereo, smell sizzling meats and see West Indian patois slogans painted on the bright red, yellow and green-striped walls. The dimly lit dining room is dominated by a lively beach-shack bar, while the open-fronted kitchen serves refined versions of Caribbean classics ranging from jerk chicken to seafood gumbo. Plentiful, sparky options abound: try rib-sticking salt-fish fritters perked up with chilli jam or pork belly with buttery succotash and smoky BBQ sauce. For dessert, rum-soaked chocolate cake with chocolate sauce is best tackled with two spoons. Unfortunately, service runs at a London gallop rather than a Bridgetown stroll – a more relaxed West Indian vibe would help matters no end.
