Quality food - I wasn’t expecting that much in terms of quality or even quantity and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! Love the location of the venue within the ‘village’ a hidden gem I feel!!!
Personalised customer service, feeling like you’re the only person to be greeted and served!
Friendly and approachable staff, so laid back and nothing is too much drama!

Visited this establishment on a Thursday evening based on the good reviews I had read.
We were pleasantly surprised, hosts were friendly and food was home cooked and extremely tasty. Food and drink prices were extremely reasonable. Overall a very enjoyable evening and experience so no doubt we will return.

What can be better than enjoying amazing Jamaican food; served by thoughtful and warm staff; ska and rock steady playing in the background; surrounded by nostalgic 2-Tone artwork? I think it's the best cafe I've ever been to. I highly recommend it after your trip to the Coventry Music Museum.

Had a surprise birthday party on Saturday at Simmer Down restaurant. The food, service and welcome we had was brilliant. Simmer Down is not just a restaurant it is a true experience of Caribbean food, hospitality and culture. The best way I would describe Simmer Down is it is like going for a meal at your Auntie's house in Jamaica.
Many thanks to both Angie and Alf for everything you done for us. Nige and Angie xx
