Caribbean restaurant and bar Turtle Bayis is set to open a new waterside restaurant at Salford Quays this summer.

Boasting a beautiful waterside terrace area overlooking world-class arts centre The Lowry, it will be the first Salford location for the restaurant group, which also has two sites in Manchester city centre – one on Oxford Road and a second in the Northern Quarter.

The brand new 180 cover restaurant is set to open this August, bringing its trademark beach shack style to the Costa Del Salford just in time to see out the end of the Manchester summer.

At the new site, diners can expect a soundtrack of reggae beats as they did into Turtle Bay’s crowd-pleasing, Caribbean-inspired menu.

From island-inspired breakfast dishes like aromatic curried chickpeas and rich Curry Goat Hash, to a jerk pit barbecue, buddha bowls and small plates, Turtle Bay’s all-day food menu boasts a wide selection of Caribbean soul food and grazing options.


With vegan and vegetarian options as well as vegan cocktails, there’s something for all tastes and occasions.

Elsewhere, the restaurant will also be serving up its TikTok-famous bottomless brunch – a two-hour-long experience with endless tropical cocktails, mocktails, Red Stripe beers and prosecco.

Salford Quays customers will also be able to enjoy Turtle Bay’s delicious rum-based cocktails as 2-4-1 every single day.

Happy Hour will run from 10am to 7pm every day, with a late happy hour also kicking off from 9.30pm between Sunday and Thursday, and from 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays. 


With room for 180 covers, the brand new restaurant will create 60 new jobs in the area and is now actively looking for staff to fill a range of positions.
