The food was absolutely amazing... and the service was lovely. Always a great experience at Cottons Nottinghill Gate
Always great service food was amazing thank you for the complimentary drink for my birthday
Food was nice but drinks kinda expensive food quality varies across branches
Staff was very helpful and let us feel welcome,
Stout Punch I ordered wasn’t what I expected or what I had previously at Cottons Camden, it was weak and did not taste has it was meant to or previously made.
Rice & Peas was very tough and dry we couldn’t eat it,
Not sure what rice they use but it should taste much better if it was done properly,
Overall I would return again because this could’ve been a one off,
To end on a positive note the location was very good atmosphere was really nice and staff serving us I would give them 5* ratings.
If you haven’t been I would recommend
Jerk platter was delicious, looking forward to coming again.
Such a good vibe. The staff were so friendly and energetic. Lovely atmosphere.
It was a great time with the family. Seated pretty quickly food did not take too long to come out and it taste really good. A thumbs up for us.
Good food, service was a bit slow don't know if they were short staffed. Toilets need to be checked as all paper towels were over flowing from the bin and no loo roll in one of the loos. Cocktail also delish!
Nice spot, good food, staff friendly but service little slow.
Food was cold, rice was hard and meat was chewy. The food arrived before the drinks arrived. The bill was expensive. The only positive was the drinks which were good.
Excellent food and fun atmosphere. Would definitely go again
The dish we order was amazing. Service was great as well. We did the bottomless rum punch and it was delicious.
Dead vibes, and the servers kept ignoring us even though we were sat right by till/bar. The food was great though and the drinks were pukka. I’d defo visit another location.
It’s the best!!
Had a great lunch, the waitresses were first class and the service was very quick and efficient.
Food was great hot and tasty
This has to be the worst eating out experience that I have undergone
Food and drinks were nice but both my starters and mains were served cold.
Good and drinks were great
Lovely place, friendly staff, good vibes, amazing food.
It was my first time at Cottons, my friend recommended it, and I loved it.
The service was great and the cocktails are delicious too!
I would highly recommend it, I will be back for sure! 😊
Thank you so much for all the staff, you guys are great!
Food was great and the portion was worth the money spent. Our host Kelvin was very attentive despite the restaurant being very busy. Would definitely go again
Had lamb, much too much oil in the plate, excessive which surely did bot come of the meat
Excellent & tasty food. The cocktails were also very good
Whilst we enjoyed some lovely rum punch and some delicious food our overall experience was let down, by what we found to be very poor and impersonal service, poor leadership from the manager, luke warm dishes being served and dry cold plantain that was inedible to us. We really wanted to have a fun family Sunday lunch and travelled an hour to get to the restaurant. We were shown to a table by the back door in a corner and when we asked if we could sit someone else were just left to find somewhere ourselves. It then took a while for our waitress to come over and take orders. The restaurant does not offer any bread or other nibbles whilst waiting and we waited twenty minutes for our starters. The order was brought wrong and our child's main meal was brought at the same time although we had ordered him a starter. The wrong order was not rectified. We finally had our main meal an hour later - goat curry, tofu curry and jerk salmon, nothing that should have taken that long to prepare, particularly as the restaurant was not full and we were one of only two tables eating, others were enjoying the bottomless brunch drinks. When we raised the issues with the manager, he repeatedly said he apologised that we felt that way, but gave no indication he heard or understood what the problem was. When asked he said, the time we had waited was within the acceptable waiting time for a restaurant. So disappointing. We will not be returning or recommending this branch. I thought that there was a lack of care and love for the restaurant and customers.
Thank you all at Cottons Notting Hill for accommodating my daughters birthday gathering you all were professional and amazing hosts!
Had a lovely time, some of the food came out room temperature ( jerk meat platter an plantain, but the staff was happy to warm it up. Considering we waited for the food we assumed it was coming out hot..
Its a very sad place or was that night. They accepted our booking at 9:30 and when we entered they said its a last call for kitchen and bar.
Ordered jerk chicken which turned up cold - had to ask twice for this to be warmed up. Also ordered the fish platter, tilapia missing from the platter not informed when ordering - the fish platter appeared to have not been grilled - lacked flavour! Truely disppointed, I have regularly gone to Cottons for many years and the food service was a big let down.
Service was shambolic, drinks beyond awful totally not worth the money
As visited Shoreditch branch expected good things. However disappointed with starters- husband had spare ribs & i had saltfish fritters both luke warm. We shared the jerk platter. Good apart from the plantain not cooked enough. At no point did the waitress ask if our food was good. Best thing £10 off per meal. Sorry
The food is great. There was plenty of it. Its very tasty.
Friendly atmosphere. Bit too loud for my personal preference. Food great and cocktails banging .
Apart from the food being insanely delicious and the portions totally being worth the money, the staff are super friendly and you can have a good laugh with them.
Also, cannot rave enough about the cocktails. So delicious and you definitely taste the rum that’s for sure!!
Food was great, we went for a lot of the fish dishes which were very tasty.
Our evening was let down by the service which was a shame.
Most of the waiting staff looked miserable and left our table unattended most of the evening.
Never offered more drinks or a desert.
Menus were reused / torn paper ones, probably not the most hygienic.
Went onto somewhere else for cocktails...
Lovely staff great food would visit again, clean and welcoming.
Fabulous food and cocktails, friendly welcoming staff. Highly recommend x
Great Caribbean option in London
The food was delish and cheap as they had extended the eat out to help out scheme for September.
The food was good, but the service wasn’t great.
Nice friendly place and the food and drink good for value.
Great restaurant , would definitely be back for dinner
