Cottons...Bringing the Caribbean sunshine to Camden since 1985.
It was ok. Nowhere near as good as it used to be. Didn’t have the mock jerk chicken which was one of the reasons I booked. Also no banks beer. Both of these are on the menu and should be available.
It also felt rushed. Main came up almost right after the starter. It used to be a lot more relaxed and chilled experience.
The staff were however very good and friendly.
Overall I left fairly disappointed as it was always one of my favourites.
Nice and familiar with friendly staff. It was a bit quiet for a Friday night but I was in good company so it was a good evening overall.
The food was ok and the drinks were good.
We had a very unpleasant experience. The food and drink didn’t come for over an hour and the staff didn’t apologise.
I asked the manager to call me and after saying he would he hasn’t followed up
Great food and great experience with super friendly staff!
Wasn’t aware only a set menu was available on NYE (rather annoying!) however we decided to stay and order something. Meal wasn’t worth the money and we sent back our mains twice! Third time lucky but by then I had lost the will to live.....will not be returning I’m afraid although the waiters were apologetic overall.
The restaurant is cramped. i had a booking for 3 and was shown to a small area that was really for 2 and no where to rest coats etc. The restaurant was busy the staff (some) tried their best to accommodate but there were too many times we waited for a while just to get our drinks!!!!!
Lovel atmosphere. Service was fantastic if and provided with smiles. Bar staff were really friendly and attentive and the food was amazin as usual.
Brilliant atmosphere great drinks food was amazing I’m not easily impressed but this place was great
Great food and great ambience! Amazing drinks! Thank you very much for a great night
My friend and I visited Cottons in Chalk Farm at the weekend (01/12) and were very impressed with a few things really! Like the ambiance of the place felt like we were back in the Caribbean, the music was set at the right level where you can have a decent conversation and hear what the other person is saying, the food was amazingly good like when mamma use to make it from scratch (so fresh and so delicious) straight from the sea to the table....And oh so worth the wait...All credit to the chef/s! But wait a minute I hear you say..."What about Customer Service"! I am glad you asked that question because to top our night off the staff were extremely polite, smiled throughout and made us feel welcomed...BIG UP to the staff! And do not forget to give them a tip.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the day...Thank you to all the staff on the night I was really impressed And will certainly be coming back to COTTONS again :)
Great service and decent portion sizes. Cocktails in happy hour were delicious.
Was really impressed with the vegetarian and gluten free options!!
Great cocktails, food and service! Will go again soon.
Amazing food! Amazing cocktails couldn’t fault it!
As we came in the resturant we stood by the door and waited to be seated however no one came. Eventually the lovely dj told us to go to the bar and we were the brought to our table. The drinks were amazing and the food was good!
Food was so delicious, mojitos yummy and waitress very friendly and efficient.
Food was ok but quite pricey, service was good. Downstairs smelled like a toilet.
Love Cottons .The food is the best most authentic Caribbean food i have tasted in a restarant.
Great food and atmosphere, will be going again. Music was good , brings back memories.
Great food. Great cocktails. Great service.
Will definitely return
Delicious food, chilled vibes, really nice cocktails and the kids eat free on Sunday’s was a nice touch too. Will definitely return.
Food more authentic than most places claiming to be the Caribbean. However, jerk could be more so than just awash with barbeque sauce. It was also good to get a real portion of food. The cocktail was lovely actually contained rum which you could taste.
The best squid I’ve eaten, love the vibe - DJ had us dancing. Good service from our waitress, she kept the cocktails coming!
Will definitely go back again. Great portion size made it even better.
This was our first experience at Cottons and we are looking forward to visiting again soon.
Food was good. Gr8 Cocktails..
Food was great. Salt fish was to salty,otherwise lovely meal.
Recommended by a family friend... it was worth it. Service was fantastic! Food was tasty n delicious! Music on point, drinks was epic. Will definitely be back!! That Calamari though 👌🏽🤤🤤
Food was good, and the Rum menu is impressive, however they don't have most of them. My colleague had to try 5 before finding one available, and the first 2 attempts resulted in waiting 5 minutes each time to learn it's not available, until the waitress suggested going directly to the bar to order it. As I couldn't get up easily from the table and they also didn't have the one I had ordered, I just gave up.
My third visit to Cottons. I live in Manchester and I have been to Cottons during my last three visits to London. Cocktails are good value compared with a lot of places. Food interesting.
Booked a table and arrived to be greeted by two bouncers who then informed us, it was finished serving food and could only get a drink!
Great Caribbean food, matched by great cocktails and mocktails. Service really friendly and efficient.
I was impressed with the food and cocktails; both were delicious and reasonably priced. The cottons rum punch was yummy and had a good amount of rum. cocktails galore at this place and all made well.
Great service too which is rare in Caribbean restaurants- well done Cottons Camden
We went there for our wedding anniversary and the food and service was amazing. Treated us to some complimentary rum and dessert to help celebrate. Very friendly and attentive staff. Definitely recommend and will be going there again.
Service was poor. Made a booking, when I got there the shop was closed. A member of staff turned up, opened the door, I asked if they were open, was told yes and someone would come to see to me, I waited 5mins and nothing. I went elsewhere to eat.
What type of poor customer service is this? What was the point in making a booking? Waste of time and I'll never go there to eat again
We received great service and staff were all very friendly. The cocktails were great and we received a great recommendation from the staff. The food we had was very tasty and will definitely come again!
Well worth a visit for tasty, authentic Caribbean cuisine.
Where we sat we had both the kitchen and restaurant music competing with each other. It was funny in a way but kind of distracted us from our catch up. Our waitress was really lovely and the cocktails were great too.
Very enjoyable experience . My wife and I were celebrating our 32nd anniversary . The quality and taste of the food was pleasing , as it embodied the authenticity of Jamaican cuisine. Our server Charmaine was brilliant , making us feel welcome and appreciated.
We shall be returning to “cottons” very shortly ..
