"Dear Andrew & Staff - Thank you for organising a truly memorable 50th birthday celebration for me. My guests and I were attended to with true professionalism from the time that we entered the door to the moment that we departed. The special touch of a dedicated member of staff to help/support and tend to our every need was greatly appreciated. Your manager is amazing and the whole team continued to be respectful, happy and attentive to all my family and friends throughout the evening - this sort of hospitality is rare now a days! My DJ has asked me to tell you that your equipment is \'off the hook!\' The sound was amazing. We all wished that we could have danced for a couple more hours!!! Thank you for the support you provided in setting up my celebration of life.  In future, I intend to have all my parties and celebrations at Cottons - its home from home with all the support, help and small details taken care of! Thank you. Best wishes, D"


"I had the overwhelming task of organising a Retirement Party for a local Fire Officer who had served 30 years with the London Fire Brigade, Cottons was a obvious choice with its great spaces, authentic Caribbean Cuisine and more importantly two bars to look after what would be a jam packed midweek night of partying till the early hours. 

The venue accommodated our very special requirements in every area (food, music, rolling presentation and drinks) the night was a roaring success with almost 200 hungry firefighters, friends and family the food was amazing in both quality, quantity and service which was challenged to the limit. If you are thinking of arranging a special event I can highly recommend Cottons in Islington, but do take the time to meet in advance and pre plan to get the best out of this great local restaurant. 

A very special thanks must be mentioned to Kimberlin and Andrew for their assistance in arranging the event and to all the staff who were exceptional on the night, I will definitely be using Cottons with its great facilities including a fully featured DJ booth and dance area downstairs for any future celebrations."


"I have been to Cottons many times for food and it's one of my favorite restaurants in London. So my husband and I decided that we would have our wedding reception there. Andrew and Beverley the owners were so supportive and helped us plan out a menu for our guests that was within our budget. They gave us great ideas about how to manage the event and set up the dining area. When everyone (around 50 guests) arrived we had welcome cocktails and then when we sat down to eat everything flowed very smoothly. Everyone commented on how great the food and the service was. We didn't have to worry about a thing and I'd definitely recommend having a wedding reception there. It's nice because there is the beautiful restaurant upstairs and then a big club area with a bar downstairs so we had cocktails upstairs, dinner downstairs and then they cleared the tables and everyone was dancing to the band. There are palm trees and plants downstairs so it feels really tropical and like you're on holiday! All our guests were crazy about the food, it was really tasty and with very generous portions. It was definitely an excellent experience and I'd like to thank Andrew and Beverly and all the Cotton's staff for making our big day so special!"
