Three Little Birds is a restaurant that pays tribute to the musical legend of Bob Marley, with a Jamaican-inspired menu and an all-Jamaican rum bar. From their location on Coldharbour Lane – the centre of the British Caribbean community in Brixton – they are open from 9am Wednesday to Saturday, from 5pm Mondays and Tuesdays and from 11am on Sunday for a fabulous breakfast. Enjoy lunch and dinner featuring fresh patties, tropical fruit smoothies, bammy and any number of jerk-spiced specialities.
Don’t worry bout a thing, cos every little thing gonna be alright...at least it will if you rock down to Electric Avenue, or more accurately, around the corner from there on Coldharbour Lane in the Concrete Jungle of South London. Three Little Birds in Brixton is a Jamaican meal worth singing about. Wake up this morning, smile with the rising sun and head for breakfast: they do cornmeal porridge and hard dough bread with Guava jelly (with Jam-in’, if you will), or Lively Up Yourself for a lunchtime bammy and beans.
They’re open all year round at Three Little Birds on Coldharbour Lane in London’s Brixton, so whether the Sun is Shining (and the weather is sweet) or they’ve Turned the Lights Down Low in winter, you know you can find One Drop of rum and an ital feed. Get up, Stand up early in the morning for their brunch, No Woman, No Cry at the heat of the jerk-spiced pork wrap at midday or just Smile - Jamaica provides all the rum in their cocktails, so drink deep into the night. Is This Love that we’re feeling? We think so.
I always enjoy eating at Three Little Birds. I was greeted with the usual excellent service and then fed very tasty food. I'm already planning my next meal there.
Great brunch with good banana pancakes and nice brown egg bacon burger! The fresh orange juice is excellent. The waiter was nice and friendly, had a great time!
Great food and service. The codfish fritters and banana cake are to die for! I have already recommended this restaurant to all of my friends!
Cute place, nice staff, good food. Possibly plantain I have ever had, and I lived in the Caribbean for 18 months. Nice cocktails, love a rum old fashioned.
Took my mum here on her birthday, she's not one for restaurants so it was a risk in that respects.. but after my first visit I thought is was worth the risk. It was wonderful they helped me set the table with flowers for her so when she arrive it would feel a little special. I ordered the Chicken and Waffles and it was so yummy :) my mum got the same last minute when she heard what I was ordering. She need hot sauce with hers which was happily provided, her taste buds are spicier than my own :D. The chicken was lightly crispy on the outside and incredibly moist on the inside (perfect) and waffles were wonderful. Thank you C/K/A
Three little birds has a really nice vibe and the food is delicious. They seemed to be very busy when I arrived. Nobody greeted me, I had to go to the bar to ask where the table is that I reserved. The lady behind the bar was very nice and polite. She pointed me in the direction of my table. As I waited 30mins for the rest of my party, no one (waiting staff) came over to offer me a drink or anything. The tables were all very cramped. When the rest of my party arrived, we were served near enough straight away. Food didn't take very long to arrive but the portion of rice and peas was extremely small in comparison to the chicken so I had to order another portion and I'm not a very big eater so that kind of gives u an idea of how small the portion was. The chef served us our meals and took our dessert orders as I'm guessing they were under staffed. The food was really really nice as were the cocktails. It's a nice little rum bar/ restaurant but too many tables cramped in. They did seem short staffed and busy but it would have been a lot better if more effort was made with the service. Staff was nice when approached. I would give the benefit of the doubt and go there again but maybe not on a Saturday night.
Three Little Birds is more of a cafe than a restaurant with a limited menu which was chalked onto a blackboard - nothing available in print. Not great if you wanted to peruse the menu for any length of time. The food was very overpriced - a case in point jerk chicken wings for £8 with no sides, and no children's portions. On the plus side the decor is very nice as is the ambience with the reggae of Bob Marley's records being played in the background. Overall though I have to say more style over substance. There are a lot of restaurants in Brixton now so Three Little Birds has to be more competitive.
The atmosphere was fantastic. Staff were pleasant and very friendly. It was very busy so there was a lot of waiting but the music was entertaining so we didn't mind at all. The food was soooo good. Perfect serving sizes, bags of flavour. I was in love with the Oxtail Shepards Pie; the veg were to die for! I will be paying Three Little Birds another visit for sure.
My friend and I had been meaning to visit 3 Little birds for a while and when we both become available it was an easy decision where we would go and we were thrilled that we went. the food was fantastic and the service was timely we both had the Jerk Burger - it was delicious, truly. the meat was done to perfection (medium/rare) as request, succulent spicy beef....you could really taste the jerk spices without the overwhelming heat the onions were a delicious accompaniment for the spice, the bun was soft but held firm (didn't fall apart like some can) I loved it. So good, Little food heaven!
My mum and one of my friends share a birthday and we were going dancing around the area on that night, so as I thoroughly enjoyed the food with my mum I thought why not :D.. It was the only choice that came to mind knowing that I would enjoy the food.. we had a drink there as well the aptly 'Buffalo Soulja' it was delicious..and dangerous, it taste like refreshing juice with a hint of ginger, be it catches up to you in a warm inviting way that you don't see until you're laughing and enjoying yourself :) Thanks K/C/A
