Well….service friendly….all fish disappointedly from frozen packets. Calamari, a bit rubbery with no discerning spice. Salt fish fritters, ok, not quite enough fish and a slight undercooked floury texture and taste. Neither came quite hot enough. Scallop with lime dressing, tiny portion, mainly leaves, a...little avocado and tomato. Scallops the size of 1p pieces- shocking value at £13.50! Not quite sure if it’s changed hands since previous reviewers or we ordered the poorer dishes? Certainly not somewhere we would revisit.More

This is truly a gem in the middle of Brixton! My teenage son was scraping his plate. This is one of the few if not only seafood Jamaican restaurants specializing in seafood. It’s, fresh and tasty with just the right amount of fire. We ordered...fish fritters, pepper shrimp and calamari for appetizers and it was ver tasty. Our main dishes included curry seafood and salt fish and ackeee and festival. We loved it all. It was so delicious the service was superb!More

I took my mother in her late 80’s for her birthday - they just showed her so much love and respect. Their not fast, or slow, but human. And the service, human too - they are themselves in a good and quirky way - these...ladies (and gent) different. And the food, top notch! Blessed people, I would definitely recommend food, service (you have to get it) and that you go there. Blessed people that you should bless - they care. It’s in the subtleties you might miss. It was a good choice for me and my family. My mum had nothing but love! And so did we!More

The seafood curry was the best thing I have eaten in Brixton. I can't believe I have waited this long to try Etta's. Lovely service, great drinks and incredible food. As a local I will be going A LOT.

Are you sick of how sterile Brixton has become? Are you fed up of the bouje boring lack of authenticity Brixton now possess? Well you clearly haven’t been to Etta’s! My wife and I are both huge seafood fans and more importantly connoisseurs of the...best vibes life can give. Etta’s was perfect, the lobster Mac n cheese was BANGING…the brown stew was BANGING, Etta was AMAZING. Such good quality everything, food, service, price. Holistically everything was so on point that I can not fault at all. I think my wife might actually love me after taking her there, it was that good. Go. Before the Hondo tower ruins everything.More

Etta is really friendly and cooks the food to order so it's always fresh. My pumpkin and sweet potato curry was delicious as were the strips of fried plantain. Will definitely be going again.

Went to Etta's after reading the reviews, I was expecting fantastic food but I was a bit disappointed with the dishes served. Staff were friendly, venue could do with a face lift.

Where to start? The food is fabulous. All cooked by Etta by hand from scratch once you order. Etta is such a wondeful woman and an amazing hostess. The atmosphere and service are great. I love this place !!
