Two men claiming to be present with a well-known politician at El Porto restaurant last night have given their version of events.

The men told Antigua News Room that the politician was their guest at the restaurant and did not disrespect the employees.

Derek Barrett  said, “I can say is that this story is untrue. There were no threats made and I feel that this story has been dreamt up in order to undermine the MP.”

Adam Barrett who also claims to have been present said,  “I was also in attendance and witnessed no such threats being made. People were eating and we requested a table and we were turned away. So we left and had dinner else where.”

According to the source, the politician also threatened to call in the authorities.

When contacted Al Porto management did not wish to comment.

  1. I was at this particular restaurant last night and this MP was my guest, unfortunately this MP was not made welcome as one would expect, I was very surprised to say the least

    HE WAS NOT RUDE in fact quite the contrary

  2. I was there and what has been said is not accurate. There were no threats made by the MP in question. To be honest I couldn’t understand why he couldn’t be served as it was clear people were eating.

  3. Probably a UPP supporter, imo they should’ve served him, it’s called customer service, I can understand that the chef may have left but I’m sure there wa some1 there who could prepare a meal, we are all human use your words……. if the chef left let whoever know so and that alternatives will be put in place to ensure the mp (or anyone else) has a pleasant experience in their establishment, simply reopening the kitchen for some1 makes them feel special, not that they are above anyone else. I’m sorry but the kitchen is closed is not acceptable imo especially if the restaurant is still open, prepare something simple that would knock their socks off and show off your product . I repeat , it’s called customer service!!!!! Learn some

  4. And if others can stand up and say otherwise, in fact prove otherwise….. then does it become a war of words
