Top West Indian restaurants in London

Wondering where to find the best black dating venues? If you and your date are looking for an evening of West Indian food, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve come up with some London hot spots for black dating with a Caribbean flavour.

Black dating in North London

Cottons Caribbean Restaurant 55 Chalk Farm Road, London, NW1

With 3 different rooms named Barbados, St. Lucia and Margarita, and a bar area called Jamaica, you’ll feel like you’re in the Caribbean when you step inside Cottons in Camden. With 270 different types of rums available, and a dedicated ‘Rhum Shack’ with a huge range of cocktails, your date will warm to this place instantly.
 

Mango Room 10-12 Kentish Town Road, Camden, London, NW1 9NX

Is Ska from the 50s and 60s your bag? Then Mango Room might be what the doctor ordered for your next black dating spot. Contrary to its name, Mango Room is comprised of three rooms, each with different atmospheres depending on whether you like your dating noisy or tranquil. Try the Creole Snapper with mango and peppercorn sauce washed down with a colourful cocktail.
 

Coco Bamboo 48 Chalk Farm Road, London NW1 8AJ

Brazilian and Caribbean cuisine are to be found at this restaurant, where ‘taste is the only language spoken’. Bossa nova, reggae and samba are what the people at Coco Bamboo will play to tickle your eardrums, whilst you and your date devour a plate of curry goat with sweet peppers and scallions.
 

Black Dating in South London

Bamboula 12 Acre Lane, London SW2 5SG

If it’s good enough for the West Indies Cricket team, it’s good enough for us. Bamboula brightens up the surrounding areas of Lambeth Town Hall in a way that only a Caribbean eatery can. Against a backdrop of chilled reggae, sample some jerk lamb or for dessert go for West Indian bread and butter pudding, soaked in rum. Your date will be delighted by this black Caribbean dating spot.
 

Negril 132 Brixton Hill, London SW2 1RS

Fresh ingredients and ‘a little Jamaican loving’ are what makes this famous Brixton spot an ideal location for black dating in London. With free range and organic food on the menu, Negril promises to delight your date with its funky surroundings and fresh fruit juices. Bring your own bottle of wine and be sure to save some room for banana, vanilla and coconut ice cream for dessert.
 

Ace Fusion 110 St John’s Hill, Battersea, London, SW11 1SJ

Rumour has it that Michael Jackson’s mother has paid a visit to this South London eatery, which combines Caribbean dishes with African and British influences. Tender rum and garlic prawns and honey barbecued salmon are just two of the treats which may have drawn such pop royalty to its premises. For food lovers, this is one black dating location you won’t want to miss.
