Barbossa’s kitchen is dishing up a pirate’s bounty of culinary treasures, with Caribbean influences sprinkled across its menu. Diners are encouraged to sit down to a feast of varied delights that can be hoarded or shared. The menu ranges from spicy South American empanadas and Jamaican buffalo chicken wings to traditional Cuban sandwiches, rum-glazed barbecue pork, chickpea curries and Barbados-inspired fish cutters. If you’re hunting for a late-night snack, Barbossa Bar & Bottle Shop keeps its kitchen open late and serves up smaller bites well after its neighbours close, while also opening early to serve up breakfast classics and coffee.The flair doesn’t stop with the food, as the bar crew are handily capable of whipping up plenty of tiki-style cocktails that extend beyond the ones listed on the main menu. There are enough rums on hand to make even Jack Sparrow salivate, with barrel-aged drops taking pride of place in the back bar alongside beer, wine and other fine spirits. Amateur mixologists can put their hands up for an agricole degustation, which allows them to craft their own cocktails. Barbossa has retained Greystone’s cellar, with a boutique array of drops available if you need to swing through and pick up a bottle. Every spirit found behind the bar can be purchased at the bottle shop, while beer lovers can purchase a growler to take home, filled with any of Barbossa’s tap beers.
