Guanabana is spreading the word of World Elephant Day



You may be thinking why is the Guanabana restaurant writing about World Elephant Day? It’s quite simple really, because the world’s elephants are becoming endangered, and we need to help make the public aware of the issues. So at Guanabana, we are celebrating the event in the surroundings of our Latin American restaurant, situated in the heart of Camden.


Recent statistics show that elephant numbers have dropped by 62% over the last decade, and if the current trend continues then they could be extinct within the next ten years. More than one hundred African elephants are killed each day by poachers seeking the valuable ivory, meat and body parts, leaving just 400,000 elephants in existence.


Elephants are running out of space and time and World Elephant Day is due to be celebrated on the 12th September, so why not join in! So whether you support the cause by fostering an elephant, sharing a photo on social media or signing the online petition, we can all support such a worthy cause and prevent elephants from becoming extinct. For further information over the event please check out the World Elephant website,


First opened in 2007, Guanabana was one of the first Latin Caribbean restaurants in London and we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve established in Camden. Specialising in cuisine from all over South America, we offer a wide selection of food that will cater for any particular taste buds.  In recent blogs, we have enjoyed describing the food that our chefs freshly prepare, but are your aware of the restaurant itself?


As you walk through the front doors of Guanabana you’ll realise we’re anything but ordinary. Your immediate attention will be drawn to our Latin American décor, and you’re be surprised that just moments before walking through the door, you were in the heart of London! At Guanabana, our commitment was in enhancing your Latin Caribbean experience which we believe complements the food we freshly deliver in are open planned kitchen. Designed with colour and character, our rooms are filled with paintings as well as an array of mismatch of furniture, all with the effect of bringing the vibrancy of the Caribbean to our part of Camden.


Our hard work and highly accoladed food has given Guanabana the reputation of providing a fun and atmospheric location to the streets of Camden. So, whether you’re wanting a quick bite to eat from our Brunch Menu or celebrating an evening with friends, we have a dish that will make the event that bit more memorable.

NEED A QUICK SNACK FOR LUNCH- Not everyone has time for a sit down meal, but don’t worry we can still provide you with some fresh and delicious takeout food.

Our sandwiches can be served with a freshly squeezed juice of your choice, which is guaranteed to help to your five a day!
