Guanabana

Squaremeal Review of Guanabana ?

With modest prices & a BYO policy (which means you can add your own rum to the fruity mocktails), it’s little wonder Guanabana brims with groups celebrating their 20something birthdays. A hotchpotch of mismatched furniture mirrors the rather mixed-up menu, which takes its cue from across the Caribbean, Central & South America. That’s rather a lot of ground to cover, & the results can be confused. Creamed callaloo & sweetcorn quesadillas, crab & artichoke empanadas, & pan-fried sea bass with feta mash are, perhaps, best left alone in favour of burgers (try the Mexican with guacamole & hot-pepper mayo), sirloin steak fajitas, or jerk baby chicken with a side of cassava chips. The bamboo-clad outdoor area lets in some sunshine – appropriate when you’re eating this kind of food.

Finally, they refused to give us separate bills and then tried to fob us off with a single bill which was not itemized. You guessed it, they were overcharging us by £7.80. Looking on Tripadviser, there are lots of negative reviews which...

Editor's pick It's a shame that the service at Guanabana doesn't try at all, when the food tries so hard. Drinks should arrive before starters, not after main courses, warm, and only after repeated pestering (we weren't the only ones in the room having that problem either). There seems to be no coherence between staff members as they buzz around the dining room swapping covers and leaving diners craning necks in all directions to attract their attention. As I said, the food tries but doesn't always hit the mark...
