Based on the reviews we were looking forward to the Wednesday night drumming and some good food. The place was busy for sure. But even allowing for a slower Caribbean vacation pace, the speed of service indicated not enough staff. The food was only mediocre compared to other places we enjoyed much more in Castara. The facilities were less than... More

This unassuming restaurant has an outside porch where you can dine on local fish, lobster, and meats. The vegetable portions were large and delicious - Indian style dahl, pumpkin and other varieties. We brought our own wine which turned out to be a good idea since they had run out so they did not charge a cork fee. The mood... More

We have been fortunate to have just spent 2 amazing weeks in Castara and have experienced the pleasure of Sharon's delights. Great tasting, well marinaded (seasoned) Caribbean food is served in huge portions by lovely staff. Aside from the formal restaurant evenings (Monday, Wednesday and Friday), there is an amazing home made pizza experience on a Sunday afternoon, that shouldn't... More

we frequented The Boat House on a few occasions during our stay in Castara in September, Sharon's food was absolutely delicious the best that we tasted during our stay, her culinary skills are truly amazing. Sharon herself is an amazing lady, very entertaining. The Boat House is an experience not to miss if you are in Castara.

My husband and I have had the pleasure of patronizing The Boat House Restaurant on two separate trips. And most memorably Christmas of 2013. Sharon and her whole crew not only served us fantastic food, but made us feel welcomed and wanted. The atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for while we lingered on the deck from lunch to...

Sharon made us a lovely lunch and looked after us before and after our boat trip as well as ensuring that the gang gave me 1/2 tank of fuel for the car...that was on empty after the drive up from Mount Irvine. Ahem! The setting is simply one of the best in the World.

Really great service, amaaazing food. Very relaxed atmosphere, felt like home. Luckily stumbled upon this hidden gem after a long drive through the breathtaking Tobago rainforest. Lunch (including dessert) for a party of five adults cost less than TT$400, or about £35. The curry-coconut shrimp is definitely a must! It's a short drive from the Castara Bay beach facility, down... More
