Nice and friendly

Kenny is a good host and always friendly. Since I was traveling alone I preferred to eat at the bar which was no problem at all. Keesha is a delightful cook and makes delicious meals

The restaurant at Castara retreats is a majestic place to for couples or families to eat, with some of the best views across Castara bay. Kenny serves the best cocktails! 🍹 there really is no better place to eat and drink, whilst hummingbirds coming to and from the nectar feeders!😎

On our second, recent visit, we were pleasantly surprised by the new restaurant/cafe/bar opened at Castara Retreats. Impeccably run by Kenny,Patricia and the lovely Lucy it is high up in the resort, on a set of open balconies with stunning views (hint - book a table to eat at sunset!). The food is the best in Castara, by an order... More

The food was very nice and reliable, but always the same - could do with a 'special' once a week or a BBQ to ring the changes. It was quite a bit more expensive than eating out, but it also saved tired legs from another steep hill climb! Would have liked to see more desserts on the menu, or even... More

Food was great. I had swordfish while the rest of the group had some custom made fried chicken. The food was delicious, service was great and the patio dining area was probably the nicest setting for a meal I have ever had!

Came here for dinner during our stay in Castara. The staff and owner were really friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. The food is excellent, probably the best restaurant in the village if you're looking for something a bit less native to the area. The desserts were absolutely amazing. The owner gets incredibly delicious cocoa and makes a plethora of desserts from... More

This is a fantastic sunset dinner location. You do need to reserve! My husband loved the tuna. Drinks were strong, as they seem to be all over Tobago, that's a plus. Very locally popular place.

We stayed at Castara retreats for a week recently and enjoyed several dinners at the restaurant. Kenny is welcoming and helpful, and the lovely ladies in the kitchen are friendly and cook delicious dinners to order. It's best to call ahead or stop by and let them know what time you want to have dinner. They serve lunch as well.... More
