    The service was well below average. We were told informally that there was a shortage of Restaurant staff. The bar staff were doubling up as food serving staff, and although they did a great job, the service was slow. There was a breakdown in communication among waiters who took our requests and whose shifts ended and the staff who were on duty. We were not informed that there were no plantains when we ordered. We had to ask what alternative to plantain was available instead of the restaurant offering us an alternative.

    Table booked for 1pm. Staff welcoming although it appeared that the cleaner was finishing off. A bit cold inside as sliding doors open for a short while so the floor could dry. Food and service was good. Need to purchase larger jugs for water. Would recommend this restaurant.

    I had the Christmas Jerk Turkey and my friend had the Jerk Chicken, we both really enjoyed the food as it was full of flavour. I just loved the Caribbean spin on the traditional Christmas. I also love the presentation and the waiter was very attentive too.

    Some of the waitresses are rude and don't listen to your orders and charge you more. My food was also not nice. If I could post a picture of my bloody chicken wings I would but it was slowly "cooked" it wouldn't really be bleeding that much to the point of where I don't eat my food. Waste of money. Also I asked for a booth and they put us bang in the middle without even looking at the reservation.

    Best Caribbean food restaurant in Manchester, the food tasted just like a home cooked meal and for a family of Caribbeans who have grown up eating this type of food it really speaks volumes. The staff were so friendly and accommodating, and although there were a few blips with our orders when they came out, it was dealt with efficiently and with professionalism. Our waitress was outstanding, super attentive and friendly and had such a positive vibe about her. She is a credit and I would definitely visit again. The only thing I would say is the music was a touch too loud at times and we were practically shouting at one another across the table, but none the less the music was still top form and we enjoyed listening to it

    All Meals Good however our favourite and one of the main reason for having meals at Island vibes was the Red Snapper Escovich Meal which we have been told has been taken of the menu it needs to be back on ASAP Chef :) Thanks CMH

    Went for by 20th birthday lunch and was recognised by staff as a Returning customer, we were incredibly well looked after and there was even a cake and shot on the house! I can't recommend the bar enough but more than that I would recommend becoming a returning customer to anyone because the staff are just so friendly.

    Table was booked for 19:00 and we were greeted and diligently looked after by staff. Staff were friendly, smiley and polite. Chefs made excellent food from starter through to dessert, great plating, presentation and quality of food. All round good evening. We were able to conduct business discussion with no distractions.

    I booked a table for two for the 1st date night with my girlfriend after lockdown. The table was grabbed from inside, put down n cleaned but we were seated right the entrance! Not very romantic! I had a word n we were moved accordingly n from that point everything was fine.

    When we visited this restaurant it was absolutely shocking! When we arrived we were the only ones so we’re seated to a table. Food and drink menus were never given to us so we had to ask for them. We then ordered food and drinks after 15 minutes of being there. Food arrived around 30 minutes later however drinks had still not arrived. The waitress came over to tell us that the bar tender hadn’t turned up just before our food had arrived and pretty much laughed in our face. 5 minutes later she came back and said he still hadn’t shown up but the owner had said he was willing to make our cocktails( ordered a pornstar martini, a mojto and a corona beer). We seen at the bar that the owner was in fact training another guy and that’s why our drinks had taken over an hour to come. The drinks eventually came after we’d finished our food and our plates were cleaned up. We weren’t even offered soft drinks on the house to eat with our food. The waitress and owner had no people skills. We won’t be coming back here ! If they’d had just been honest from the start and said they were doing some training then it wouldn’t have been a problem. Spent £50 to sit there and down our drinks after the food!

    The food was excellent however as the restaurant got busier, the service was poor. We were originally sat on an end table that seemed to have just been shoved on the end of a long table, with minimal room to move. We did ask to be moved and were moved straight away. We waited at least 10 minutes for drinks, and the 2 tables close to us were waiting over 20 minutes for cocktails as the barman had gone for a break

    Lovely set of staff, good location and with a canopy and heaters on as we was seated outside. Great music and great atmosphere. Although the food was warm when delivered to us, it took a very very long time, as well as drinks. Me and my friend wanted our starter and main to arrive at the same time including drinks, but had finished our starter by the time we received our drinks, finished our drinks and waited more before we received our main which put us off wanting to order dessert, our last set of drinks took a very long time that we were able to change our minds 3 times before we received it. Overall it was a lovely experience, just needed to be quicker with table service!

    Second time i went there, my food was cold asked for it to be made hot and it came back luke warm. Portion was a lot smaller from the previous time i was there. It took over 40 minutes to get a drink. The waitress was lovely but stressed as many people were complaining but it was not her fault. Was not impressed at all.
