a few weeks ago i was invited to try out a new caribbean restaurant in notting hill, cottons was not a restaurant that had been on my radar before but once i asked a few friends about it they could not recommend the camden branch enough so i had high hopes for the notting hill restaurant escecically as there aren't that many caribbean restaurants local to the area.
as you walk in you are welcomed with the sound of 90's r&b and a beautiful brightly painted mural wall. the resturant is modern is with caribian twist, we sat in the back which has a conservatory type of feel (good for letting in light when you want to take pictures of your food, i know blogger problems)
the food was lovely, not too spicy and full of flavour, i would say its not somewhere to eat if you are in a hurry as the staff let wait a little bit between courses but thats nice if you want a relaxed eveing
we also need a minute to talk about the cocktails, i had a ying yang colda which combines a frozen daiquiri and a pina colda. basically if you go get one, coconut slushy goodness.
you can book here if you fancy checking it out for yourself and they also deliver if you want to sit in your pjs and watch telly instead of venturing outside.
