Unfortunately he had to work during the day, but I booked us a table at Turtle Bay - a Caribbean restaurant in town. I'd heard a lot of things about it - both food and cocktails - but we hadn't had opportunity to go before. Caribbean food isn't really something I've had a lot of experience of before but I had already looked at the menu online and had some pretty high hopes!

The place had dessert menu, so I couldn't really say no. I ordered the Dark Chocolate Pie, which was actually just a warm, gooey chocolate brownie and came with ice cream. Warm chocolate cakey things with ice cream are one of my favourite desserts and this was awesome - it was so chocolatey and gooey in the middle. Even though I was immensely full I couldn't not finish it!

I had a really lovely evening. Turtle Bay is a great restaurant - if you're ever in Southampton you should check it out, I think they also have one in Milton Keynes. They also have a lighter lunch section on the menu if you're eating during the day. I will definitely be going back, I'd really like to have lunch there and also maybe go on an evening that isn't a Saturday to see if the atmosphere is any different when it's less busy. Plus I have to go back at some point to check out happy hour and try some more of their cocktails :)
Hope you all had a good weekend,
