Review on Cottons - Notting Hill Gate

Caribbean restaurant Cottons has been a dining institution of some thirty years in Primrose Hill, so the denizens of Notting Hill Gate were delighted at the prospect of the opening of a new branch on their doorstep. Inside the décor is bright and vibrant reflecting the sunny disposition of the Caribbean islands, with the double dining room flooded with light from the glassed atrium at the rear and the suspended glittering chandelier. Walls are enlivened with vivid murals depicting flourishing greenery, cascading waterfalls, parrots and a traditional Bajan shuttered chattel house.

The kitchen promises a more refined menu than its siblings, with colourful specialities and bold flavours showcasing authentic Caribbean and Creole cuisine. A good starting point would be the barbecue glazed pork belly with rum, molasses and pickled vegetables or maybe the seared scallops with passion fruit and lime infusion, pineapple and chilli salsa might be more to your taste. Follow with a succulent Guyanese 48 hour slow cooked beef pepper pot with fondant potatoes or there's a classic Trinidadian fish and aubergine curry served with steamed rice. To finish there's luscious desserts in the shape of a mango baked cheesecake with cream, guava sorbet and passion fruit honey spiced granola or malted chocolate fondant, tamarind salted caramel, rum and raisin ice cream.

The central bar serves the UK's largest variety of rums with over 300 varieties available, many of which are used in their tempting cocktail menu.
