Every year, a group of friends and I go to Tobago and it is our tradition to have breakfast here. The pancakes are good. The last time we went the pancakes were pretty oily and not all that special. The service is always pretty poor. The owner tries his best but there are only a few workers so we try... More

I enjoy eating at the O-HOP every time I visit Tobago. Breakfast is always delicious but they also stay busy and as a result, they are also slow in bringing out orders. I see a few opportunities to improve the flow of orders, but I think the owner likes to give each order his full attention and as a result,... More

Don't waste your time. This place has the worst service. An hour for a table, dirty dishes. Much better experience years ago at their original location.

My husband and I had breakfast at this restaurant. It is family owned and run. The service was very warm. The pancakes were..awesome. I especially liked the nutmeg syrup. The dining area is outside and there are a lot od birds. It is small and rustic and worth the price.

Nice staff and tasty food. I had an early breakfast and enjoyed the early morning sun. The sky was a kaleidoscope of colour and it was a short walk from my hotel. The owner was very friendly and remembered I had inquiring about the restaurant a month before.

I've been here two times and on both occasions I ended up leaving without being served. To begin with we waited 10 mins just to be seated. In my opinion that's to long to wait to be seated. We were then told that the order would take somewhere around 45mins. Huh? That's when we decided to leave. However I did... More

I always enjoy a tasty breakfast at this outlet. The surroundings could be a bit questionable, but the breakfast is always worth it.

Nice folks, nice outdoor setting, convenient location. It was a Sunday around noon, so understandably busy. Menu at that point was a little thin as things had begun to run out, but what we ended up ordering (English breakfast, stacks of pancakes, waffles, various juices) was quite good.
