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.
