Please leave us your thoughts and comments on 2..Sixteen below. Thank you.


  1. Hi,

    Drove past this evening and realised you'd closed down :( Such a shame as you really were the best Carribean restaurant in North London. Always friendly, personalised service and beautiful food. Such a shame that you've had to closed!

    Best wishes for the future!

  4. Fantastic food. Fantastic staff. Fantastic ambience. Exceptional value for money.

    Arranged a birthday dinner for my wife at 2 Sixteen. What a great night out. Yvette, the owner is a fabulous, fabulous woman who, with her equally attentive staff, went our of their way to may the event memorable. Where I fell short in arrangements, Yvette and her team were there to help and assist in every way.

    As for the food. OMG!! Fantastic. Carribean cooking as it shouild be and plenty of it. All 30 of us thought the food well prepared, well served and finger licking delicious - we couldn't fault it. I can't enthuse enough about the place and would highly recommend it. Food highlights - everything but in particular the prawns and jerk chicken wing starters.

    Don't let the size of the venu fool you. It can easily accommodate 30 plus and there's a cute little bar just off from the main dining area. It's not Mayfair or Park Lane but trust me, there is something about the place that draws you in. Officially, it's oone of my most memorable dining experiences - and I do get out a lot.

    September 22nd 2012 - Aunts 50th

    Yvette catered for 40 people and as usual the food was lovely. Guests plates were cleaned to the bone and enough to take home also. The birthday lady and her guests said they enjoyed the food to the fullest and several have asked for Yvette's number.

    Thanks again Yvette, looking forward to bringing more friends, family associates to your restaurant and recommending more to use your catering servics also.
    Great service and great food.

    Bless you

  6. September 12th - Father and daughter b'day

    First time dining at your restaurant along with the other 13 guests, my father and I had a great evening out at your restaurant Yvette.

    The food was lovely and filling and we all were stuffed. As some others have commented, your restaurant does make you feel like you're comfortable at home dining. I loved the decor, its nice and warming.

    We had a wonderful time and we'll be back soon indeed.

    Thanks as always

    Hi Yvette,

    I know I've said it to you several times, but thanks ever so much for caterering my niece's blessing. Your professionalism and knowledge of what you do shone through.
    The food was lovely and many guests commented on how much they enjoyed the day buffet and also the evening buffet. You and your team did a fantastic job and I will continue to recommend you no end.

    Thank you for all your hard work leading up to the day and on the day. With all the stresses of planing an event, you were a breath of fresh air.
    May God bless your business.

    Kind Regards

  9. Hi Yvette

    Most had Caribbean fare for the first time and yours was the best introduction by far. Everyone loved everything. Not one criticism! My favourite is always the prawns.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your hospitality and fantastic feast.

    Kindly let me know your daughter's name she was a fantastic hostess. Nothing was too much for her.

    Thanks again

  10. Hello Yvette,
    I just wanted to thank you for a great evening and great food on Wednesday night. Everyone enjoyed it so much and my cousin has said we need to sort a big family meal there soon as she just loved it.
    Send our love also to Emerson, it was great to meet him, and let him know that if he fancies an evening of Ska music to head to Gaz's Rockin Blues at the St Moritz Club on Wardour, every Thursday - w'll let you both know the next time we're all heading down there and we can all go together!
    Much love and thanks,

  11. Hi Yvette, I would like to thank you for the wonderful food and for your hospitality on Friday 13th July. I and three of my closest friends had dinner at 2 Sixteen last Friday and what a wonderful experience! The atmopshere was warm and friendly the decor charming and your service professional, but still friendly and informal. You said that eating at your restaurant would be just like having dinner in your dining room, and this is exactly how it felt. Don't get me started on the food, which was amazing! I think you can gage from this that we had a wonderful time. We will be back as a group in September, and probably before as individuals. Thanks once again and see you soon. Allyson xoxo

  13. Yvette,

    Many thanks for doing such a fabulous job with our party. The food was delicious and many of the guests commented on it. We had such a lovely time partying and not worrying about anything and you left the kitchen spotless! We couldn't be happier.

    I hope that you are enjoying the jubilee weekend,

All the very best, Hilary x

  16. You make food for the soul and as a repeat customer will continue to support you. As a very fussy eater I am grateful for the manner in which you so easily accommodate my dietry needs. I have been a life long vegetarian and since last year I have move onto the next step to being vegan. Your food is full of taste, nutricious and extremely satisfying. Thank you for the beatuful environment, I love the comfortable environment and the friendly service. I also love the display of art. I feel so good when I eat at your restaurant and the joy of the food stays with me. Look forward to my next visit.

    Keep up the good work
    Perfect love

  18. Hiya! just wanted to drop you line and say thank you for a fantastic evening last friday (im the big, hungry guy on the little table who'd just come back from tobago!)

    I think these days, everyone is quick to complain, and slow to give praise- but you guys NEED to be congratulated, cos you do a really good job of everything- the food was unbelievable (those WINGS!), loved it when you came out and had a chat with us before hand too, really great service, lovely atmosphere and the worlds biggest chocolate cake to finish!!! thanks for packing up the leftovers too- theres nothing quite like curry goat for breakfast- ha!

    All in all I think that was my favourite meal ever! my birthdays in April- so you'll be hearing from me soon!
    thanks for everything,


    (Posted on 2012-01-10 18:52:00 by Mike)
  19. What a joy it was to have you and your team beavering away at our party last night.
    You had SO many comments on your gorgeous food and a handful of friends want to know your details which I'll happily give them.
    I think next year I'd have 2 people dealing with drinks, one pouring etc and one greeting people on arrival with a tray of champagne etc. Otherwise it was all perfect. I can't believe you wiped down the hob too!!
    Thank you so much

  23. Hi,

    Just to say THANK YOU for the amazing dinner we had at 2...Sixteen Caribbean Restaurant in January! I know it is such a long time ago. We moved to Cambridge since... but see ...I am still thinking about it.
    One of the best dining experience I had in London!!! The "culinaire" journey was amazing from Jerk Wings to your Fish Stew without forgetting your amazing homemade ice cream and precious advise on wedding organisation.
    I hope you are well and we will definitely drop in next time we come to London!

  24. I contacted Yvette on a Monday to organise a birthday party for my friend the following day and...boy I was impressed!
    Not only is she a great host, she is also a great chef! She prepared a fantastic buffet for us, and made a variety of dishes with so much care that all my friends were impressed. We all know caribbean food really well and we were amazed at how tasty the food actually was. It was also really well presented and not too hot.
    The service was really warm, friendly and they made us feel really special.
    The restaurant is normally closed on Tuesday night and we had the whole venue for ourselves which felt really intimate and confortable. Sweet reggae in the background...it is almost like you are in the Caribbean...
    Yvette decorated the table and the restaurant for my friend's birthday and it was obvious that she knew exactly what she was doing. Very affordable, the party was good value for money.
    In brief, I would highly recommend 2...Sixteen to anyone who fancies a lovely meal, cooked with love.
    PS: the restaurant is also very romantic for those couples out there who fancy a caribbean date...

  25. Hi Yvette,

    Just wanted to say thanks for a great meal on Saturday night. You really made us feel welcome and we couldn't stop talking about the great food for the rest of the night. As promised I have posted a few reviews online for you - now for you to keep your side of the bargain and send me that fantastic Jerk Wings recipe!

    Really looking forward to coming back and sampling your Fish Stew next time.

  26. Good afternoon Yvette,

    Good afternoon Yvette,

    I just wanted to say a big thank you for making my birthday so special. You provided a warm welcome, a keen sense of fun and most of all your wicked laughter and excellent food. Every one went away with a wonderful taste of the Caribbean, they loved your presence and the warm welcome and for some it was their first taste of Caribbean cookery. Please pass on our thanks to your staff who did an excellent job on the night.

    Big hugs

  27. Hi Yvette

    Just to say thank you, for the delicious food, everyone enjoyed it and there was plenty to go around. Also say a huge thank you to waiter who was wonderful and cheerful the whole evening.
    I'm going away on Saturday, but once I'm back I'll be down to the restaurant for a feast, as I didn't taste to much on saturday!
    Thanks again, see you soon.

  28. The most authentic carribbean takeaway I have had, prompt delivery, good portions and friendly staff.

    (Posted on 2011-02-20 20:44:00 by Elouise)
  29. Hi guy's I went to this restaurant for my mums 70th birthday and mum does not eat out but Yvette the manager invited us to come down for a tasting and my mum was impressed. Let me tell you after agreeing all the details which was very easy and fun we went for the meal on the 15/01/11. Ladies and gentlemen to this place I will be going back to, the food was fantastic, the atmosphere was like being at home and the staff could not do enough to please.
    We never asked for anything twice and as expected they catered the whole event around us. Mum felt very special on her day and I am glad I chose 2 Sixteen.
    The quality and value of food that we had was first class, there was so much food that everybody left stuffed to the hilt.
    All I can say is that the five stars that have been given on this site by all of the reviews including mine has been fully earned and is a tribute to the effort and enthusiasm that they put into making each experience an unforgettable one.

    If you are looking for some where to go you must dine at 2 Sixteen

    God Bless

  31. Yvette,

    Thanks again for a memorable evening of excellent food and good company. Our friends loved it and, like us, will be back again for more of your unique cooking and warm atmosphere. The rum punch was just what we needed in this snowy weather. May you go from strength to strength!

  32. Thanks Yvette for a wonderful eating experience! Great food - very tasty, excellent portion sizes, and best of all your amazing hospitality.

    You made myself and my husband feel like old friends coming for a meal rather than first time customers.

    Can't wait to visit again soon!

  35. Hi Yvette

    I wanted to say thank you for making my birthday meal so special. All my friends had a great time and commented on the excellent quality of the food, warmth of the welcome and great atmosphere. Having a meal at 2..Sixteen was like dining at the home of a good friend.

    I'll definitely be back and will recommend it to others.

  38. I have been twice, as part of a foursome and twosome, and both times were inviting and comfortable, like we were special guests in a friend’s house. The food is tasty and fairly priced, the portions generous; I will return.

  39. I too must share in applauding 216 for providing the finest cuisines available in the Haringey area. My wife and I have returned to Australia after spending two with our daughter and her family who live at Crouch End. During our time there I sampled just about all the Caribbean related cafe's and restaurants in and around Hornsey, and I have to say that 216 tops the list for me in terms of authentic taste, service, quality, quantity, value for money, presentation, and ambiance. The chef Yvette appears personable, has a passion for her craft and seeks to please the customer when it comes to how Caribbean people like their homecooked foods. I would travel for miles to eat at 216, in fact I just did.

  40. I recently had the pleasure of tasting the exqusite buffet menu at 216 it was absolutely amazing. It had been a long time that I had been to a Carribean restaurant that served such delicious home cooked food. It was a breath taking experience the service was excellent and the host Evette was charming as ever.

  41. Hi Yvette, Thanks for your text. You will remember me as the big lad who wasnt given my coleslaw the other week. My mother and father were up for the bank holiday weekend and really wanted to try your food, and as my mother said to your colleague sadly the mutton curry was forgotten but it was then sent out within 5 mins which was fine as we tucked into your fantastic starters of Saltfish Fritters, Okra Fritters and Jerk Wings. My mum and dad were blown away with the mutton curry and the meal overall. It was my mum who wanted to call you guys to say thanks! They were even tempted to order more and freeze it before they went back to Cornwall. You know how much of a fan i am, i just hope more people in the surrounding area realize it and i just hope you guys keep going as you are! Dean x
