Turtle Bay: First Ever Christmas Menu!!

Turtle Bay recently contacted me and gave me the exciting opportunity to review their first ever Caribbean Christmas menu. This was perfect timing as I had just visited the Caribbean for the first time in October and loved trying all of the food and drinks out there.

Turtle Bay are actually offering a variety of packages for Christmas, including 3 course lunches, all day 4 course meals and festive platters. Obviously, being the foodie that I am (others would probably call it greedy) we opted for the 4 course menu. As you can see from the photo's, the restaurant itself is gorgeous, I absolutely love anywhere with fairy lights. We picked the Guildford restaurant as this is the closest one to me and my friend Steff who I invited along to share the experience with.

Firstly we tried the 'Upon Arrival' snacks, this is like the starter's starters I guess but such a great idea for when you're really hungry, it also means you don't quite rush your main meal decisions. The 'upon arrival' food consists of Garlic Flatbread, Trini Chickpeas & Spicy Pork Rinds. 

For drinks I decided on the Porn Star Martini - one of my favourite cocktails! 

To start I had the Sweetcorn Fritters, these were delicious but definitely not a healthy choice!

For mains I had the Spinach, Aubergine & Sweet Potato Curry, again this was absolutely delicious but pretty spicy. I really tried to finish this but as well as having a massive portion, it was just a bit too spicy for me to enjoy towards the end.

Steff went for the Guyanese Duck Curry which she really loved! 

See, I almost finished my food...

Oh, and another drink - this was a special recommended by our lovely waitress. I believe it was recently taken off the menu but a previous favourite from Turtle Bay? 

Yes, we still made sure we had room for pudding. I had the Rum Cake which is actually imported in from the Cayman Islands so was a true taste of the Caribbean.

Steff went for the Banana & Toffee cheesecake but admittedly we had half and half of each others just because pudding is the best bit, right? Oops! 

So after that, we were completely stuffed and could hardly move we'd eaten so much. All the food was super tasty and the staff extremely friendly, making the whole experience wonderful for our Sunday afternoon. I would definitely recommend Turtle Bay for a place to try this Christmas, this would be he perfect place for any Christmas party!
