Bootleggers is in the Trincity Mall in East Trinidad, with the entrance being on the eastern side of the mall. To cater for those who want outdoor seating especially the smokers they have arranged tables on the sidewalk just outside the entrance to the restaurant. Inside the restaurant is a two level with the bar dominating the ground floor. The second level also has a bar that is used when the restaurant is full.

The food is very tasty and the service is good. On Friday nights this restaurant can fill up and be lively.

With high anticipation of the new location on the new wing of Trincity Mall plans were made to have a girls lime of drinks and dinner at Bootleggers.

The option to eat/drink on the outside is great! And also an encouragement to "wine and dine" at the establishment. Upon entering and with a brief scan of the settings I selected a seat (tall chairs and table) right next to the door (entrance) and waited on my company.

The ambiance came across appealing. However, apart from brushing off a dead fly from the table, there was a scent I just couldn't shake. But decided to let it slide as everyone was looking pretty content and happy with the environment.

When my friend arrived we ordered drinks (2 Mimosas). 15 minutes later comes our waiter, drinks swinging in one hand and rests it on our table. To our mortification the glasses were wet! water stained and without straws! My friend then proceeded to ask for our straws to which he gets and drops in our glasses :| shortly after the same waiter smashed a bug on the (dirty, finger stained) glass door :|

After a quick prayer we drank our Mimosas *raised eyebrow*... which, according to my friend tasted as though it was made with "box champagne" ahahahaha!

Well! an instant decision was made NOT to eat there! We drank then made our way to another eating establishment in the mall.

Scenario 2: I also saw a gentleman proceeding "outdoor"... drink in hand and a napkin. He caught my attention as he was adjusting the napkin next to the drink then dropped his hand (drink in hand) "down low" next to his leg. I thought nothing of it till I saw the same guy walking back in with empty plates held high! :| WHATTT!? HE IS A WAITERRRRR!?

Disappointing indeed!

As we left the establishment... along with some flies... :| a decision was made not to drink or eat there again!
