This year we want to transport our customers away from the hustle and bustle of Camden and let you experience the paradises of Rio de Janeiro’s and São Paulo (just without the air miles!).

Our open plan kitchen serves the finest cuisine all created from fully trained chefs. Coming to Guanabana is a must for any visitor to Camden this Brazilian Independence Day.

Guanabana Berry Breezer- A perfect mix of fresh berries mixed with Guanabana special juice. A real refreshing drink for those memories of sitting on the beach!

Brazilian Independence Day is all about sharing great food and at Guanabana you and your guest will not be disappointed in what we offer. What do you fancy from our menu?

Picanha- A popular cut of steak from Brazil and is known as the rump cap. Cooked just how you like it, but will you jerk it up?

Sticky Lick Beef Ribs= It’s sounds good, but just tastes so much better! Served with jalapenos and homeslaw, the beef from the ribs just falls of the bone. This is one dish that is a party feast to savour. Will you be brave enough to share though?

Pan Fried Seabass Fillet- A real taste of the ocean. Freshly caught sea bass served with a feta cheese mash and a herb sauce. Has that not got you dreaming?

These are  just a selection of our specials that our chefs and Guanabana have been creating. Now can you see why we’ve been around since 2007?

We know that not everyone wants something that adventurous, well don't worry we have just what you want!

The BBC- The BBC has nothing to do with the TV station but is all about the ‘barbeque, bacon and cheese’ burger! Sandwiched in a homemade brioche bun, this burger is not seen at any fast food joint, this is a ‘gourmet burger’ that we are proud of! Chargrilled to perfection, we guarantee you’ve never tasted anything like this!
