The Secret Garden at Madrigal is a new pop up hidden restaurant based on the Kent Coast in Folkestone. It was opening night last Friday and it went down a storm. This innovative idea was put together simply because we love good food, enjoy meeting new people and absolutely love interesting and humorous conversation.
What we were hoping to achieve was a small, cosy, intimate atmosphere where people could eat, drink, make new friends and potentially network for business. And we did it. On our first night as we’d hoped, by the time the last course had been devoured, tables were pushed together and friendships were made and cemented over a night cap.
For a mere £39 per head the menu consisted of the following.
A glass of cold Prosecco on arrival, Grilled Mackerel served with beetroot and goats cheese whipped with fresh cream and dusted with ground walnuts all drizzled in aged balsamic…….. Calvados infused home made lemon sorbet…………Slow cooked beef brisket served with creamy mustard mash and crispy deep fried pancetta, chestnut mushrooms and a delicious red wine and garlic jus………..a trio of mini deserts, apricot and Amoretto trifle, crunchy chocolate and ginger mousse, Leche Flan…………… a fine selection of cheeses and fruit chutneys………………… All prepared by the fabulous Chef Romeo Acido Jugalbot, one of Asia’s best kept Secrets…………
An offering of excellent wines all priced at under £14 per bottle……..not bad eh!!!!!!!
This weeks menu will be a staggering £32 per head ……….. something fishy I think !!!!
Come and meet Maitre d’ Lloyd James and he might tell you some of his Secrets !!
We will have a list of Friday and Saturday menus ready soon, we are small and can only accommodate up to 12 people and the evening is set. If you want to come along and either entertain family or friends, or take a chance and get to meet some interesting people, in a friendly, relaxed, quirky, unique, atmosphere then you should contact me to enquire…. if you don’t you will never know where the Secret Garden is as it will always be a Secret, anything said in the Secret Garden stays in the Secret Garden because it is a Secret and we ask that once you have visited you never tell anyone where the Secret Garden is, it will be our Secret………. so please do get in touch and leave me a contact number and I will call you and give you answers to your questions……..Oh by the way we only take cash payments on the night we don’t do plastic but that’s our little Secret.
