“Absolutely loved the place, great feel good factor, well done TBay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

Had never even heard of this restaurant until last week, but we were looking for something different to eat and Turtle Bay which came up 3rd on TripAdvisor was worth a try. It turned out to be a great decision. ,As soon as you walk in your greeted with real warmth, a great party type atmosphere with bright colours and lively reggae, you instantly feel in a good mood. The place was packed and it was only around 6.30 pm, but despite this the service was very quick and within minutes i was sat down with a pint of ice cold red stripe beer. We ordered a selection of dishes including jerk chicken, chips, pork, rice and some spicy fried squid, all the food was delicious, dare i say it even tastier than Nandos and i'm a big Nando's fan, simply pure happiness on a plate. In fairness as the atmosphere is so lively and happy i thought the food would be a secondary consideration, but would go again just for the food. Thank you and well done Turtle Bay it was the best £60 ive spent in ages, telling everyone about it and have become a massive TB fan

“Lovely ambiance, friendly staff, food a little too spicy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

Nice lunch, great surroundings - we had fun spotting the best speaker in the wall art. I possibly made a bad choice in my chicken jerk wrap - it was very very spicy and leaked all over my jeans as I failed to realize the foil wrapping was holding in liquid. Street burger was OK but not stand out. Banana and peanut butter smoothie was amazing and the service was friendly - could have done with a tip off on the heat of different choices though. Would go again to try a different menu selection and explore the options further. Lovely to have something different.

“Really good fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

Turtle Bay is cheap and cheerful Caribbean bar / restaurant serving decent food and good cocktails. The staff were attentive and the atmosphere was good. We arrived at at 7.00pm on a Saturday evening and after a drink at the bar, we were seated by 8.00pm. If you are looking for fine dining, this is not the place for you, but for something fun and different it makes a nice change.
It did not feel like we were in the UK!

“A good first visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

We had a very pleasant early evening meal.
Main courses were varied with several vegetarian options. It was good to have some fruity desserts the barbecued pineapple was particularly good
