I booked the resturant for my father's birthday. He has just flown in from Jamaica. My parents are very fussy when it comes to Caribbean food in restaurants. They were highly impressed with the quality of the food and drink. They are already planning to visit again with friends.

Our waitress was really nice and the food was amazing! The only things I found quite odd was that we had booked a table in advance and we're still told that we only had a certain amount of time to eat as they needed the table back. I could understand this if we were walk-ins but as we had booked a table, it felt like we were being rushed from the very beginning.

Wonderful! I booked a table for drinks and was sadly running late - the team simply welcomed my group and our table was waiting ready. No fuss, no comments - nothing just greeted with a smile - I appreciate this type of vibe and honestly, you don't receive it enough at bars/restaurants. Thank you TB Southampton!

Would have rated the service better as our waitress was great, but I was hit in the back with a load of ice thrown by bar staff behind us who were obviously trying to hit each other, but got me instead.

Had a lovely meal and excellent service but I do feel the toilets let the restaurant down - don’t know if they are checked regularly but they should be! 😏

This was my 1st time to turtle bay... as expected Saturday night was full but we booked a table in advance. Once we arrived we had a shirt time to wait for table to be ready so we went straight to the bar. Bar staff were brilliant and so welcoming (loved the beer). We had a table on the higher level at the back so this was nice for me and my wife to enjoy our meal. We shared a buffet 10/10 waitress was amazing and so helpful. The music and atmosphere was great too... BUT the toilet situation aint good at all! the unisex idea is ok but the toilets defiantly need a refurb and possibly a "rethink"... Otherwise 10/10 would def go back just bcoz we enjoyed the food and service so much. Thanks

We have been to Turtle Bay so many times and it is our "go-to" place before a night out but recently we have noticed the quality drop rather a lot with the cocktails. This time they were really bad. Full of ice with no flavour at all or completely the wrong make up and taste. We spent a lot of money on both food and drink so it was disappointing to have so many that were actually undrinkable. Food was lovely as always. Will we come back - possibly but we are thinking of other places we could try instead now.

Ordered the sirloin steak but there was so much fat and grizzle in it that I left most of it. Absolutely disgusting. Went and got a kfc afterwards as I was so hungry. IF we decide to return (probably won't if honest) then definitely won't be ordering steak.....

Great evening, got table early as it was ready, shame it only had three feet and almost lost our drinks cos it was so wonky! Got it sorted, then met the most wonderful waitress, Anna. She looked after us so well, was bubbly, talkative, friendly and incredibly attentive. She made our evening! Food was lovely, and reasonable bill including a bottle of wine. Music a tad loud, but buzzing atmosphere and very busy, so only to be expected. Will definitely be back. Thanks. John and Alison

Had an great evening with friends, the food was lovely.... only little thing is that some tables seem to be close with people who just come in for a drink, and you can find yourself being a bit too close for comfort .... but as I can see it depends where your seated, I would advise asking for a seat away from the entrance and bar .....

Very busy with lots of people enjoying 2-4-1 cocktails . We were seated in a quieter are with other diners . Food was really tasty - the goat curry is particularly good value and very nice indeed - we also thoroughly enjoyed the spicy salmon. Service was excellent - attentive a quite fast as we had limited time before the theatre
