Mother’s Day: Tropical Style

Every mother is the most special person in everyone’s life. Face it without our mothers we would not be in this world and for many of us we would not be who we are today. Because Mothers are so special they deserve being spoilt and loved, especially on Mother’s Day.


Ask your mother what she would like most as a gift and there will be a large number who would say, “Send me to a tropical island for a week and let me relax”. It is a big ask and the vast majority of us can’t afford such a lavish gift. However, if you live in London there is an alternative and one that any mother will truly love.

Guanabana Restaurant on 85 Kentish Town Road in North London is fast becoming a legendary restaurant known for its tropical, Caribbean cuisine and atmosphere. If you cannot get your Mum out to the Caribbean why not bring her to Guanabana?

Guanabana has an amazing Mother’s Day menu that your Mum, anyone’s mum will simply adore. Your mother will love the vibe in the restaurant and will feel special the moment she walks through doors. The typically tropical welcome, the smells of amazing aromas and the feeling of love and happiness will let her know this is her moment. The staff at Guanabana will welcome your mother like royalty and treat her even better.

At Guanabana, the experienced chefs have put together a Mother’s Day Menu that will leave you and your mother spoilt for choice – and because she is your mother she can steal a morsel of something tasty from your plate, after all sharing is caring and she is your mother!

The tantalising 3-course menu is actually a 4-course menu as everything comes with added love on Mother’s Day. Begin with a freshly squeezed juice or one Guanabana's famous Mojitos or Daiquiris and then open the menu and select your starter. The starters will set your taste buds racing with a selection of dishes that Guanabana is becoming famous for. The slow cooked ribs are always a favourite with their mango and pineapple salsa that make them oh so tropical.

Once the tropical flavours of your starter have mellowed, it will be time to engage the main course. Guanabana has some of the best chefs in London working in their kitchen producing outstanding and very different dishes that bring customers back time and again. On Mother’s day, the team have pulled out all the stops with a choice of fish dishes, chicken and of course the world famous curry goat. There is a vegetarian option or you can always choose one of Guanabana’s amazing Jerked Steaks.

Once the main has settled and you have had a small glass of wine or another cocktail your desert awaits. Guanabana has kept desert simple for Mother’s Day but choosing between a Salted Brownie or Churros Latino is close to impossible. Ask nicely and there is a good chance you can get a bit of both if you are a mother, Guanabana want to make Mums feel more than special.

Guanabana welcomes every mother on Mother’s day. We will help celebrate this special day and make you feel loved in a totally tropical way. Sons and Daughters take note, if you or your mother live in or near North London there is only one place to celebrate Mother’s Day and that place is Guanabana Restaurant. Book now to avoid disappointment.

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.

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.
