Caribbean & British Food

Book Your Table

Soul Café and Restaurant

Soul Café and Restaurant is a little taste of the Caribbean in Kings Lynn! People say you can almost feel the sunshine through the food ... cooked from our open-kitchen, you can see that everything is freshly-prepared in front of the customer.

Whats Cooking, Olivier?

We are a family-run Norfolk-Caribbean restaurant serving a fusion of Caribbean-influenced dishes blended with the best of British cuisine... we offer a good range of delicious vegan and gluten-free options, and non-spicy choices too - something for everyone and a real taste sensation! We change our menu seasonally, using local produce where possible and in addition to our seasonal menu, offer a weekday lunchtime special menu with 2 courses for just £9.

Soul Café & Restaurant is owned by chef, and taste-obsessive, Olivier Vati and his partner, Helen Payne. Olivier is originally from the French Caribbean paradise of Guadeloupe, while Helen is from Norfolk. We met in London and after period of living in South Africa, we have settled in Norfolk to realise our long-held dream of owning and running our own restaurant.

Come for the food, and stay for the fun!

While we have an immense passion for food and creativity... we also love to party, so every Friday and Saturday night we have After-Dinner DJs, and push back some of the tables to create a dance-floor... Saturday is Soul/Motown nights, and Fridays depend upon the theme of the night: salsa, funk, disco or dance - it's a really great atmosphere. We have a beautiful bar with a great range of hand-crafted cocktails, rums, gins, fine wines and good beers.

We host a medley of events every month - live music nights (soul singers, jazz), tasting nights (rum, wine, gin, tasting menus), Cuban-themed nights with salsa dancing and Cuban food, Spanish-themed nights with paella and live flamenco, and local artists exhibition nights for our dedicated artists area. These are all listed on our "Events" page.
