Brian Lara Rum Eatery: A Taste of the Caribbean in Johannesburg


Inspired by the legendary West Indies cricketer Brian Lara, the eatery offers a unique fusion of Caribbean flavours with a South African twist.

A Tropical Escape

Step inside Brian Lara Rum Eatery and be transported to an island paradise. Lush greenery spills over the walls, and colourful accents evoke a tropical beach vibe. The atmosphere is lively and casual, perfect for a relaxed evening with friends or a casual date night. The trees and spontaneous tropical touches are quite refreshing – like a Miami beach bar of sorts. You can tell that this was well strategised to be easy on the eye.

A Menu for Every Palate

While the restaurant pays homage to Brian Lara’s Caribbean roots, the menu has been cleverly adapted to suit the South African palate. You won’t find dishes that are overwhelmingly spicy, but instead, a delightful balance between familiar flavours and exotic Caribbean spices. Think big burgers and spicy chicken wings, rum-basted ribs and steaks.

Craving a hearty meal? Look no further than the main course selection. Succulent jerk chicken, marinated in a blend of Caribbean spices, delivers a smoky kick that will have you reaching for seconds. Seafood lovers will be delighted with the fragrant seafood curry, packed with fresh ingredients and simmered in a creamy coconut broth.

Cocktails Fit for a Pirate

No Caribbean experience is complete without a taste of their vibrant cocktails. Here, rum reigns supreme. Opt for a classic piña colada served in a hollowed-out pineapple for an Instagram-worthy moment, or go for a more adventurous route with a lime-infused mai tai, packed with a potent rum punch. The rum selection is extensive, ensuring there’s a perfect flavour for everyone.
