Caribbean memories
  10 / 10
We have been going to Marinades regularly since it opened four years ago. We love the different type of dishes they serve as well as the freshness of the ingredients they use. The mix of Caribbean and Mediterranean cuisine works very well and there is always a good choice of tempting things to try. Although the restaurant is small (it is best to book) the feel is nice and intimate.
The service is always very welcoming and extremely friendly. The owners are a hard working couple who deserve to do well

Appalling! One of our group ordered the Curry Goat.
He was served bones instead of meat! There were four "pieces of something", 3 of which turned out to be pure bone, only one was actually goat meat. He returned the dish untouched and the chef/owner later tried to charge us half-price for that dish AND the full price of the replacement one! Apparently, that's how you eat goat, you simply 'suck its bones'! We felt enraged but managed to communicate firmly yet peacefully and in a cultured manner that we were not paying for an unsuitable dish that had not been touched (!) and had to be sent back. That dish was thus struck off the bill.

When we walked out after paying, all of us tense and incensed at this, yet very composed, the chef/owner actually mouthed a "F*ing ..." at the person who had to return their dish! I then turned around and told him I do not appreciate being treated like this and that it was very unprofessional of the chef to be swearing at his clientele! Especially after he had tried to sell us and then charge us for something that was not fit for consumption! It turned out that 'gentleman' was not capable of accepting feedback that was not to his liking. He accused me of lying and maintained that this was how you serve goat and no one had complained about it before. Well, maybe they ate all the meat and all we got was the left-over bones of the cadaver? The food was very expensive as well and neither the portions nor the taste justified those prices. Two of us actually had to ask the waitress "Is that for both of us?" when we were served the rice. This was a real shame, as we had especially travelled for half an hour to get to that restaurant which came recommended, only to be faced with over-priced, mediocre-tasting food, one dish that should have been fed to the dogs, and a chef lacking morals and manners of any kind. I wish we had had a better experience that evening, but if you want to avoid this kind of treatment I suggest you take your custom elsewhere, as shall we.
