Turtle Bay, the Caribbean restaurant concept launched by Las Iguanas founder Ajith Jaya-Wickrema, has confirmed it is to launch its second venue in Southampton in June.

The £600k restaurant will open on the ground floor of the Southampton council-owned One Guildhall Square in the city’s Cultural Quarter, creating 30 new restaurant jobs for the area when it opens.

Ajith Jaya-Wickrema, founder of Turtle Bay, said: “We are pleased to be coming to Southampton’s Guildhall Square – a perfect location for our newest restaurant. Turtle Bay’s menu will be bursting with traditional ingredients native to the Caribbean and we aim to create a memorable dining experience for customers of all ages. We look forward to welcome residents and visitors on Guildhall Square in June.”

Jaya-Wickrema also operates a Turtle Bay in Milton Keynes, and plans to open three more venues by the end of the year. He is close to securing a third site, and is currently seeking additional properties in the south and Midlands.
