Turtle Bay

Turtle Bay Birmingham barYes, it’s a chain. No, we don’t care. The Caribbean vibrancy extends past the décor and into the staff making Turtle Bay, possibly, Birmingham’s most friendly restaurant. Take a seat if you’re dining, but we much prefer to prop up at the bar which is both big and heavily staffed – meaning it’s almost never too busy.

The Reggae Rum Punch is the pick of the cocktail menu. Insatiably moreish you should mind how many you have because – as the name suggests – it packs a punch. The food is, across the board, of a high standard, but anything jerked seems to win through.

Because the emphasis is on food, the vibe is never too raucous – but it’s far from quiet with an energised buzz throughout.

Best Bars tip: If you’re ordering food, ask for Bajan hot sauce (it’s free). The yellow, spicy goodness goes wonderfully with fish, chicken and pork.
