What we’ve been up to… Negril, Brixton

Named after the Jamaican beach town, Negril on Brixton Hill has earned a rep for being one of those rare Caribbean restaurants in the capital that manage to offer both quality food and friendly service with a real down-to-earth vibe.  So a couple of pals and I headed there last night, where we tucked into saltfish fritters, plaintain and roti for starters. The former were served with tangy, homemade sauces, while the latter came with a rich, smokey  gravy.



For mains, I had the curry goat, which wasn’t the best I’ve ever had (I might give that accolade to Bamboula, just 10 minutes away near the town hall), but I thought the accompanying rice and gunga peas was lovely enough, while I could have had refills of that homemade lemonade all night.  Pricewise, they’re a tiny bit steepish unless you get a jerk-chicken with two sides combo for just over a tenner, but they do offer BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle), which makes a refreshing change. Overall, a rare gem of a restaurant that’s off the beaten track – and great choice for the locals.

  • You were literally 5 minutes from my home! I’ve eaten at Negril many times and yes, its nice to have a place that that so nearby and its great for eating outside when the weather is good BUT I’d agree that as far as Caribbean restaurants in Brixton go, the food is way better at Bamboula.

  • I love your photos and was also pleasantly surprised to go to Negril, Brixton. The food was so good and tasted like home. I hope you’ll also comment and check out my post on the wonderful starter deal they had: I want to go back now after reading your post and try the curry platter. But to be honest, I’m not over the jerk chicken, Great post by the way!
