Caribbean Scene

Squaremeal Review of Caribbean Scene ?

It only takes a little imagination & a short walk along the dock to get from Excel to the blue skies & sunshine of the Caribbean – thanks to this livewire venue. Colourful parasol shades, cane interiors & tropical island murals brings life to the waterfront, where chain hotels & anonymous apartment blocks are otherwise the norm. Mixed platters of BBQ chicken niblets, baked plantain, mini patties & crab cakes for four to share are a good way to kick off, ahead of a selection of Caribbean classics such as ackee & saltfish, flamed jerk chicken or escovitch fish that will appeal to first-timers, converts & those pining for a taste of home. Some 35 rums are on show at the Hurricane Bar, where live music gets the jive grooving on Fridays & Saturdays.

Spectacularly dreadful. The food is all reheated and clearly cooked off site as there is an open kitchen in the centre with very little cooking going. Reheated fish is really terrible and when you are paying £16 for a plate, it's a mickey take. The cocktails took over 20 mins to come (there were only 3 ordered and the restaurant only had two other patrons) and we had to ask for the twice. For 3 starters, two mains and the cocktails they wanted to charge us £90! (Inc. service) I asked them to take...

Caribbean Scene (Royale) in the Docklands is a fantastic restaurant. I’d been to the restaurant in Stratford and believed that I was heading to a franchise; however this restaurant has a distinct identity and with the exception of having the same name, is nothing like its counterpart. I ate there in the evening of Wednesday the 17th of March 2010 (you don’t forget great dinning experiences). The restaurant is very well decorated and the clientele is diverse. This is not a typical run of the mill...

The caribbean experience starts the minute you walk through the door, the decor is bright and breezy and you feel like you are actually in the caribbean. The waterside location is relaxing particularly in summer when you can dine al fresco. The staff are polite and friendly, you are always greeted with a smile. The menu offers a good selection – examples would be appetizers such as jerk chicken niblets and char grilled peppered prawns, for mains my favourites are escovitch fish or curry goat parcel....
