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

We were told about this lovely, quaint restaurant, so we thought we would try it. We weren't disappointed. They do evening meals from Wed to Sat. The menu is small, but the food was really tasty. In fact we returned the night before we departed. The staff were helpful, friendly and polite. Nothing was too much trouble. On both occasions... More

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

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
