We had heard that this was a good place to eat so we had big expectations that were not met. The food was okey, but nothing more.

Having been to Tobago fairly often in the past couple of months and discovering this recently opened cafe, I decided to give it a try. I placed my order and nicely asked for some milk to have with my cup of tea. Ten minutes later, I again nicely asked for some milk to have with my tea, when the waiter... More

Found ourselves here second night in a row because the food was heavenly. I am sitting here as a visitor from the sister isle of Trinidad and a I am terribly ashamed of the young lady serving foreigners. She has no clue how to deal with customers, her attire is as if she jus walked off the streets, very unprofessional... More

We were warmly welcomed and sat outside watching the street go by.the menu was small but wow it packed a punch.the lobster and shrimp pasta was fantastic. The fish was cooked to perfection as was the steak. Great to have a good restaurant so close to our hotel , we will definitely return .

If you are looking for a great meal in a relaxed atmosphere I would definitely recommend The Backyard Cafe. I went for both lunch and dinner several times during my stay and I would definitely go back. The staff were service-minded and also very helpful in giving great advice on what else to experience on the island. Perfect spot for... More

My wife and I are in Tobago for a couple of weeks and we already have visited The Backyard 3 times. We felt so welcomed by the staff and felt like we were visiting friends. The food is delicious, they serve freshly made juices and they probably have the best coffee on the island. The prices are very affordable and... More

I've visited Tobago since 1989 and for as long as I can remember The Backyard Cafe has been my favourite spot on the island. Fresh food, great coffee and best of all freshly squeezed fruit juices which oddly enough isn't that common in cafés and restaurants in the area. It's like an oasis next to the main Milford road. Next... More

We had great salads for lunch. Produce was nice and fresh and crisp. Flying fish salad as a perfect lunch.
