SquareMeal Review of
It only takes a little imagination & a short walk along the dock to get from Excel to the blue skies & sunshine of the Caribbean – thanks to this livewire venue. Colourful parasol shades,
cane interiors & tropical island murals brings life to the waterfront, where chain hotels & anonymous apartment blocks are otherwise the norm. Mixed platters of BBQ chicken niblets, baked
plantain, mini patties & crab cakes for four to share are a good way to kick off, ahead of a selection of Caribbean classics such as ackee & saltfish, flamed jerk chicken or escovitch fish
that will appeal to first-timers, converts & those pining for a taste of home. Some 35 rums are on show at the Hurricane Bar, where live music gets the jive grooving on Fridays & Saturdays.
