Turtle Bay Swansea opened its doors to the public on Monday 10th September and to celebrate they hosted a launch party a few days previous. I was lucky enough to get an invite along to the party and get a first glimpse at the newly transformed 200 seater restaurant.
The £800k investment has seen over 50 local jobs created locally from positions of management to front and back of house roles, with a warm friendly welcome they’ll make you feel right at home as soon as you set foot in the door.
Turtle Bay celebrates the soulful and vibrant experiences of the Caribbean and brings them to your doorstep, with explosives flavours, sipping rum cocktails at the bar and creating memories with friends, Turtle Bay is your go-to whatever your vibe. The Caribbean restaurant prides itself on its bold flavours and rustic dishes, all influenced by the culture and lifestyle of home.
Turtle Bay are notoriously known for their famous jerk chicken but still offer a vast menu for those with more preferred tastes and diets, from a mushroom and goats cheese burger to spice-infused curries, it’ll leave you spoilt for choice and asking your server for ‘5 more minutes’ too many times.
If the key to your heart is a cocktail then Turtle Bay have got you covered, with happy hour running from 11.30 to 7pm and then starting up again at 9.30pm and 10pm on Friday’s and Saturdays, the party never has to stop. Swansea’s General Manger Keith Cox has compiled his Top 10 List of Rum’s to guide the newbies or the rum veterans among us, with best-seller Wray and Nephew’s Overproof and Pyrat xo’s citrus take on rum making the list there’s no way you’ll be able to resist.
Those who were invited to the party were treated to a performance from reggae band Laid Blak who had everyone jamming and doing the conga around the restaurant and bar throughout the evening.
Thank you to the staff at Turtle Bay Swansea for a wonderful evening.
