For incredible Caribbean food, a huge rum selection – huge enough to get into the Guinness Book of World Records – and a break from day-to-day life, Cottons is the place to go. Their Camden location on Chalk Farm Road provides the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of London, and they offer some of the best tropics-inspired dishes the city has to offer. Sample amazing dishes like oxtail and bean stew with steamed rice, curried mutton, or the vegan ital vegetable curry with bullet dumplings, rice and peas. For dessert, finish up with some chocolate fondant or a cocktail and you’re good to go!
Lovely food and great atmosphere, staff can not do enough for you! Would highly recommend for a date night or girls night out! Will be going back soon!!!
Great food at Cotton's as always. Was last there in October 2011, but in the intervening time, the quality has not changed. Loved my virgin pina colada too!
My family and I had dinner to celebrate my birthday! Amazing food, authentic Caribbean flavours; friendly and helpful staff. Great experience all around. Can't wait to visit again.
The food was excellent, two of us had the trio of meat platter and it was so tender and nice. one had the curried mutton and it melted in your mouth and one had a trio of fish, which she said was absolutely devine. We went for our frined's 50th birthday and had the most super relaxing time. The rum punches certainly had a punch and were delicious and the music playing in the back ground was right up our street. Our only disappointment was we were expecting a bit of a dance afterwards but was shocked to find the dance area was just the bar area, which was way too small we thought one of the restaurant areas was going to change into a dance floor or that there might be a room at the back. Never mind we still enjoyed the evening
Waited 20 minutes to be seated, 45 minutes from arrival for drinks and 1hr 15 minutes for our meals which then arrived cold. We informed restaurant that food was cold, plates were taken back to kitchen and brought back out lukewarm. They no longer have a kids menu so we asked what would be most suitable for our 5 year old daughter, we decided on chicken wings without the spicy sauce, however when my daughter's meal arrived (cold) it was smothered in the sauce. Absolutely appalling! To book a table for 20:15 and not receive food until 21:30-21:45 is unacceptable. The waitress was apologetic for the delay in drinks however no apology was given for the delay in the food or acknowledgement from the miserable female manager. We have visited Cottons many times before but last night was definitely our last!
A visit to the Roundhouse (1 minute walk away) made even better by Cottons. Great and super-tasty food plus top, friendly service. Thanks very much.
Friendly staff and a good selection of food, particularly liked the "starters" menu. Visited on a Sunday afternoon and it was still quite busy. Would return again.
Food and drinks are reasonable, if not excellent. Make sure to ask for the hot sauce to get the best flavour from the dishes. Happy hour with £5 cocktails before 7.
