Great local restaurant

Went here for dinner on the Wednesday Sea Food Night. Very tasty and authentic. Super friendly staff and good prices. The restaurant is simple and small, prepare to wait a bit for food and drinks.

We went for the Wednesday seafood night. The only alcoholic drinks available were beer or a red wine, the décor is very tacky. We had a choice of lobster or fish. My lobster was so tough I couldn't even chew it. My worst meal of our 3 week holiday.

This is my usual breakfast spot in Tobago but today is going to be my last. I arrived 9:34am. It's 11:13am. The only thing I've had is a bottle water which I had to wait 45mins to get. The cook clearly fed up started quarreling loud enough to be heard. That's unacceptable! When asked if I'd be able to still... More

Went here on the fish night - food was OK but very little choice. Service was OK and now serving beer but no wine or spirits - good fruit punch!

Friendly staff, piping hot and fresh food! The owners are awesome and the portions were just right. Downside.....aggressive "tableside" birds which was very distracting at times.

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.
