Good food

Visited here two times and had catch of the day twice. Good food, pretty average prices and friendly service. Rum punch was also great.

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

We stayed the first week of June, waitress was very nice, greeted us warmly and visited... More

Tobago is not littered with gastronomical experiences so to come upon the "Backyard Cafe" was a surprise. This is a sort of bistro in the main road in Crown Point. The surf and turf is to die for and deserts are excellent. Ambiance is sort of "Friend's back garden" and the vibe is good. Beer and wine available and also... More

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.

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. The people were lovely, the food exceptionally well prepared... More

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
