it is a simple but cosy setting. Service is good and friendly and the food... Delicious!!!! We had the catch of the day with vegetables and baked potatoes and our only regret was to go on our last day in Tobago... We would have certainly gone again! Reservation for dinner is a must as it gets packed.

Our group tried different fish/strimp plates and all tasted a lot with an international touch even though the ground on the plate were Tobagian - very good! We started with a drink that also tasted very good. We strongly recommend a visit!

This quaint setting is very welcoming. It is family owned and operated and offers probably some of the best seafood u can ever have !! It really doesnt get more fresh than this.... the seafood platter is really value for money !! This is a MUST DO in Tobago

My wife, son and I had a delicious meal here. The menu is small but complete. The service friendly. Family owned and run. The setting is simple and relaxing in what is a very busy area.

Great place if you want a seafood dinner, everything on the plate tasted fantastic, service was friendly and efficient, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Note: This is located in an Active area so can be loud on occasion.

We arrived at short notice, as a party of ten, and were really well looked after. The menu is short and mainly seafood, but my fussy teenage daughters were supplied with spagetti bolognaise when they struggled with the choice. We had various forms of prawns, snapper and barracuda and all were fantastic. The vegetable accompaniments including plantain and chilli papaya... More
