Excellent but narrow

This is a small place with a view of the main road. The cooking however is very good, but the set-up is the same for everything, and once you've tried one or two of the menu items, unless you want to eat the same again, you need to find somewhere else.

This restaurant serves very tasty food. The sides were particularly imaginatively prepared. The menu is short but who can blame them for sticking to what they know. Friendly and efficient service.

We booked a table on recommendation. The place is small and the menu is on a blackboard. No wine list and no prices, however, the Sauvignon we had was the best so far although not cheap worth it to get a decent wine. We ordered catch of the day but they only had one whole one plus half left. My... More

Arrived around 8:30pm and was warmly greeted. Went outside to our table of choice. Very small place and a little run down - guess the reason for the name of the place. The food main course was amazing. There were limited selection of drinks however having a glass of wine outside the warm Island breeze with good food was the... More

I ate here 3 evenings, the fish dishes are excellent, perfectly cooked and presented. Gets pretty booked up at times, so best to make a reservation beforehand.

We had supper at the backyard cafe one night. We were just walking by and decided to go in. The menu isn't very elaborate but just enough for everyone to find something they like. Contrary to a lot of place here, the service was quite fast. The chef came out and met clients, making sure everyone was happy and satisfied.... More

We have been in Tobago for two weeks, and have returned three times to eat at this excellent small restaurant. The menu looks basic but the food is superbly cooked with a variety of delicious sauces and vegetables enlivening and enhancing the main ingredients. Santos and his staff are so friendly, he even sourced Lobster for us as a special... More
