“A taste of sunshine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

In two visits this has become a new favorite. Red Stripe on draft and more rum that you shake a stick at. Authentic Caribbean food and booze what a winner. We haven't checked out the basement bar yet, as we've arrived straight from work had a few drinks and a bite to eat but can't wait to have a full session!

“Good value”

Popped in here when passing in our way into town the other day. Not as
Many choices as I would like on the dinner menu but what was on was very well cooked! We will pop back!

“Tasty but not authentic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

I ate here last night and ordered the ribs to start with and the chicken curry with rice and peas for my main. Both dishes were extremely tasty and cooked very well but I didn’t find the restaurant very authentic. The flavours that were used in the cooking all though tasty I found lacked what carnival street food or home cooked meals provides.

I would say this is an ideal place for those wanting to try Caribbean food but maybe aren’t quite up to the kick that home cooking provides. A lovely trendy place that I’m sure rum loves and hipsters would enjoy

“Great for drinks and a different type of cuisine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Nice cocktails and ambience, good also to have a different type of cuisine. However, food for us was more 'cafe/lunch' standard rather than dinner. Nice enough spicy stews etc with rice...good for chilled grub with friends alongside drinks.

“Great place to kick off your shoes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Bellyfull is a really good place to go and eat we both had something from the specials board - in a relaxed atmosphere the bar has more than enough choice and any where with red stripe on draft is a winner for me! The girlfriend loved the cocktails so all in all a winner - will be back very soon

ps they are opening a basement bar downstairs that i was told will be open until 2.30am so that will be good
