The food is complemented by the extensive selection of rum from around the Caribbean including a host of exotic cocktails made by experienced mixologists. The building itself with its glass atrium, high ceilings with exposed wooden beams

Come and enjoy a taste of the Caribbean in stunning listed 18th century coaching house with a cool, contemporary atmosphere, only minutes away from Waterloo and Southwark stations. #AntilleanExperience

    Fantastic and friendly service, cannot knock that at all. The food for the most part was very tasty (especially the chicken skewer starter and steak main), however the small plates are teeny. This is explained by the server, and you are encouraged to order a larger amount between you. I visited on a 50% discount deal and in all honesty I’m glad I did, I wouldn’t say that the normal prices are good value therefore I wouldn’t recommend this to a friend unless they went on the deal

    I had high expectations for my dinner at Antillean but unfortunately expectations fell a bit short. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Overall the food was tasty but portion sizes should be reconsidered- especially the starters- they were far too small. Dessert was delicious and was all of our favorite course. The main dish was ok but I was a little underwhelmed. Great value with open-table offer but would have been disheartened if I paid full price.

    Wonderful service and delicious food! Our waiter was patient with us while we made up our minds on what to order - everything sounded delicious and it was a hard decision to make up our minds. Presentation and taste was good. The desserts won the show, in particular the plaintain tarte tatin and carrot cake!

    We have been coming to the Antillean for a year now, and are big fans of the place. Two of us ordered for the first time their signature menu, which was amazing for food quality and breadth of dishes offered. We started with an included glass or Champagne (and a virgin version for the party who does not drink alcohol), and then an amuse bouche of grilled prawn, a grouper ceviche (really fresh), three small plates of mackerel, chicken, octopus, sorbet, then three large plates (barracuda--my favorite, chicken, oxtail) and a dessert platter of four desserts. Throughout, excellent spices, salsas, etc. A tad too much food (would love it if they offered a 'half portion' version of this for the large plates. Service was excellent, and ambience very pleasant. Strongly recommended

    A nice venue with lovely staff, however both food and wine are hugely overpriced. The food in particular does not meet the quality it's aiming for. This does not mean it's bad, it's as good as any local restaurant, which would charge a quarter of the price.

    Dishes are quite small but on Tuesday and Wednesday you get 50 per cent off food so great value. Service was outstanding. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Bar was quite quiet but restaurant was fairly busy. My partner wanted to smoke outside and barperson offered to take out our bottle of wine and glasses and serve it which was very welcoming. Definitely a place to try especially before 630 when there is a discount on drinks.

    The waiting staff were very friendly and professional. The oxtail patties were delicious as was the main dish crab curry and rice n peas. I didn’t enjoy the Pina Colada, it wasn’t the traditional cocktail, not creamy and quite watery! Apart from that the Antillean restaurant experience was enjoyable and I would go again.

    What a fantastic experience! Myself and my partner had such a wonderful time at Antillean. We felt so welcome from our passionate, knowledgeable and attentive waiter. We started off with some amazing cocktails recommended from our lovely waiter and they were amazing. There was so much choice from the menu and we certainly did over indulge and can’t wait to come back to try many more of the dishes. The food was so delicious and full of favour but not overpowering. Would highly recommend. 5*

    Nice ambience. Lovely staff. Excellent cocktails. Small starters of mackerel and spider crab very disappointing. The latter (at £12) was pretty tasteless. Our main courses of barracuda and achiote tam chicken with accompaniments were interesting and well cooked. The staff tried professionally to make up for their late arrival with an offer of complimentary cocktails and an extra starter though we didn’t have time for these.

    Second time at Antillean (this week!) and the food was once again beautifully presented and tasted great. The portions are not big (even the large plates) but the quality is clear and with 50% off on Tuesdays & Wednesdays, the prices are reasonable. In addition, the staff are friendly and ambience really nice. I’d definitely recommend a visit (or more).

    Incredible value (we chose the pre theatre menu and had 3 courses) and the food was delicious - the barracuda and the mango salad in particular were lovely. And also the plantain tarte tatine for dessert. Service excellent, very attentive and helpful. The cocktails were also very tasty. I would say the space needs a bit of work, it felt a little clinical decor wise - could do with some cosy touches to create ambience but that’s my only slight negative point, thank you!
