4 of us went down to Caribbean croft for dinner and a few drinks. When we got there we realised it was 241 on cocktail until 6:30, usually when I see this it means they’re watered down or rubbish BUT they were amazing! We tried about 4 different cocktails between us and they were all really lovely and so strong!
Food was insane as always, during lockdown we often had it delivered to our house and the quality was the same as in the restaurant. Flavoursome, big portions and delicious. As soon as lockdown 2 is over we will be back again. Thank you

Absolutely superb......please dont make the mistake of thinking this is just another "Caribbean style" franchise.......here, everything seems to be home made and fresh.....a real find. And the drinks menu is amazing.....all 28 pages of it.....I never realised there were so many rums.

Food was fantastic, good value and large portions. The staff were polite and helpful and very professional. The building has a lovely atmosphere.
*They need to sort out their covid track and trace app by the door though After being told to register with it on entry three of us tried it on our phones and it didn't work and no one checked so we just sat down (they should have written our details down instead).

Went for a belated birthday meal and wasnt disappointed. The atmosphere with some good reggae music played in the background whilst we enjoyed our meals which reminded us of home! The cocktails was amazing and what we expected. Overall an brilliant experience that I would repeat. Thanks to all at Caribbean Croft Bristol for a great end result. X

We’ve had a fantastic experience every time we’ve dined at Caribbean Croft. The service is wonderful and we always feel comfortable and well catered for. The food is authentic and delicious every time, Staff are lovely and friendly, and as a vulnerable person in this pandemic I was very satisfied with their safety measures. Couldn’t recommend this restaurant more!

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Brown stew Chicken was delicious and the steamed veg was a tasty side. The Child’s portion of Fried chicken was a good size for my 9 year old. When we arrived for our pre booked table on a Sunday at 5pm our waitresses informed us that they had run out of a few dishes, which was disappointing as with a vegetarian diner the Mac n Cheese was something we would have ordered. Other than that, service was well-timed and friendly. Nice selection of Rum based drinks alongside usual drinks menu.

Our food was amazing, we had starters, mains and cocktails and all were yummy. The goat curry was insane.
The only downside was we were sat near the back and the doors were kept open and it was a bit chilly. The staff were friendly and we will definitely be back!

This is the second time we have been there and it was as good as the first. The food is authentic, tasty and so good. It was well presented. The portions of food are generous. The staff are friendly. I felt safe considering the restrictions at the moment. The environment was perfect. I will be booking again soon.

The whole vibe is lovely, ambience and music.

The food is lovely authentic Caribbean food - love the saltfish cakes and jerk chicken.

Great value and quality.


Want to support authentic Caribbean cuisine.

Only issue was the overhead air con - which was blasting us with hot air. Maybe moving the tables slightly would help, I did notice the table next to us were having same problem. But because the overall experience was great I was willing to let this go on this occasion.
