Went there for my niece's 21st birthday lunch. First time in a Caribbean restaurant. I loved the food! The starters, main course and dessert were brilliant (although not as large as I'd like portion wise) so why just 3 stars? When we got there we were told that the one-pot mains weren't available (massive chunk of the menu). Then, when... More

I visited the turtle bay in southampton with my friends. The cocktails were lovely as usual but one of the member of staff was rude, patronising and insulting. As paying customers I dont expect to be treated like this

Okay food is lovely & very reasonably priced! Two to one cocktails are great, although it's so busy your better off prefer two at a time just for yourself as they are freshly made it takes a while especially when it's busy. However tables were being cleared, we sat for over an hour and now one cleared the table next... More

Having eaten from Turtle Bay three years ago, I was was looking forward to the return visit. But I was left sorely disappointed. Hard food is part of the Caribbean experience; simple boiled carbohydrate rich staples such as green banana, yam, dasheen, sweet potato. Turtle bay has gone for a more "fusion experience" suggesting flavours from all over the caribbean.... More
