The concept celebrates the lively, colourful, soulful and, above all, delicious experiences that the Caribbean has to offer – from explosive flavours to laid back ‘liming’.

As well as their famous jerk chicken, curried goat and gorgeous rum cocktails, dishes like their Jerk Salmon are brimming with flavor as well as being a little lighter for a summer’s evening, so if you can’t wait to try it at the restaurant, here’s a recipe so you can try it at home…
