The food was delicious. Clearly a big difference between a cook and a chef! The presentation of the food was top restaurant level and the restaurants decor was classy. The staff were great and professional. The only negative was that we got there 30 minutes early, the restaurant wasn't full and they still seated us 20 minutes after our booking!! The lady the bar also put a song on that had swearing in which I didn't appreciate! Other than that, it was a great evening and lovely atmosphere.

This was our (my girlfriend and I) second time dining at Mellow’s and the food was just as good as the first visit. We ordered Jerk chicken XL meals with rice & peas, one with Cajun Sautéed potatoes and the other with Mac & Cheese. Both meals were delicious and full of flavour.

Big up to our waiter who made us feel welcome.

I was disappointed with the food. I had ackee and calaloo and it was too salty for my taste in all honesty. I also thought that the rice was overcooked. I did enjoy the cocktails which was a nice size and the right proportion of alcohol. The dessert, which was apple crumble and custard, was alright - I probably enjoyed the custard more than the crumble and there wasn't enough of it. The service was very slow - for a table for just the two of us we were there for over 2 hours. I noticed that there was only 1 waitress working at the time. I really enjoyed the music that was played. I would say that the restaurant is nice and contemporary, however, I found the seats quite uncomfortable. I would go back again and give it another try but at the moment I wouldn't recommend it to my friends.

Food was amazing !! Just didn’t see the point in putting my card details in to book a table for 2. Service was slow considering it was us and two other tables. Wasn’t acknowledged upon arrival girl continued to make drinks so I just sat myself on the couch. Staff were nice even on my previous visit their was a fair skinned chubby lady who was very lovely but I didn’t get her name

British Athletics - Head office Performance staff dined at Mellow's Bar & Restaueant on the 6 Feb. The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. As a diverse team I was confident that the staff would thoroughly enjoy the Caribbean experience and they sure did. I will definitely be recommending our GB athletes, staff and stakeholders the Melllow's.

I visited the restaurant on a Saturday afternoon with a friend.
I had previously visited the restaurant as a table of 15 and had a great experience.
Unfortunately, my experience of service was this time, dire.

After initially taking around 15 minutes to be seated, and a further 10 to 15 minutes to be served, we then waited an hour for our drinks to be brought to us (one cocktail each) and around 1 hour 15 for our food to be served to us. I was patient waiting for the food because I expected that some of it may have been cooked to order...but it came out cold. In fact, the only thing hot was my friends salmon - so I suspect that everything was waiting on the plate while the salmon finished cooking.
The food itself, despite being cold, was just as tasty as I remembered it, aside from the jerk lamb which was extremely chewy and fatty.

It seems that when there is a large group of people, they ensure efficient service; otherwise they get too laid back to the point of not doing much at all.

Nevertheless, I would recommend this restaurant as you may have a good experience as I did on my first attendance.

Food was amazing. However, it was freezing, especially since were seated by the large glass doors. We asked to be seated somewhere else but the waitress didn’t get back to us. Consequently I ate my meal in my coat. The food however was faultless and I’ll definitely be going back...just wrap up warm.

Second visit to Mellows and the experience and food/service was top notch. I was with three others and we thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service.
The only criticism is that the place could be a bit warmer.

The overall experience was good, I cannot comment much because I came when it was just opening up for business that day. I need to experience different times and days, but I will definately visit again. Kids and partner enjoyed it. The only comment is that the Curry Goat was not cooked through enough, some of the meat was chewy but the rest of the food was define. The restaurant was cold, another friend said the same thing, but the cocktail and Guinness punch was just right and the kids liked their crush. Service was very good no complaints.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated, my friend and I particularly liked the chandeliers. We arrived early and ordered cocktails, which were tasty (if a little sweet!) I ordered jerk chicken and my friend ordered curried goat, and we shared jerk prawns as a starter.

the prawns took 45 mins to arrive and the jerk sauce was mild with a tomatoee background taste, which in my experience is not a jerk sauce! a further 40 minutes and our meals arrived. I was underwhelmed by the jerk chicken having already sampled the jerk prawns as the sauce was the same. My friend's curry goat was watery and a little chewy.

I was rather disappointing as I had previously heard great things.

I was very excited to go to Mellows due to the reviews and how everyone raves about the place. I was very disappointed. My friend had a table booked for 7:30pm and our group didn’t get seated until 20:10pm even though it clearly states if your 15 minutes late your table will be given away. It then took a further 15 minutes for our order to be taken and we finally received our food at 21:15pm. I was looking forward to the food and hoping it would compensate for the lack of service however my curry mutton was full of bones - hardly any meat and rather oily. The macaroni cheese wasn’t authentic and rather bland... to say I was disappointed was an understatement. I would suggest new management and more attention paid to customers rather than staff dancing and raving at the bar - it’s not professional at all. Drinks are overpriced and not worth it, who pays £8-£9 for a cocktail and £3 for a soft drink that’s filled to the brim with ice!

Upon arrival at Mellows we were greeted with warm smiles and the atmosphere was pleasant and relaxing. The food was absolutely tasty and well cooked. From those in the group that had the Jerk Chicken they said that it was definitely Jerk Chicken tasted like the ones they use to eat in Jamaica....the Salmon was also well cooked and tasty...the food was basically yummy. We were very satisfied with the excellent quality of food and staff service, good value for money. We will definitely be booking with Mellows again. Also what was interesting the chef Mr Mellow greeted his customers that's what we call excellent service. All the best for the future and keep up the excellent work.

Would have been nice to be greeted by chef he passed to greet tables next to us, but love the incentive.

Had to wait a little too long for our mocktails. We thought they were forgotten at one point and the bar staff didn’t know what table they were for.

Loved the happy birthday song!
