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

We really enjoyed eating here. It feels like you are having dinner in a glamorous treehouse and has wonderful views over the bay. We ate here twice and had lovely food each time, along with excellent service. The ravioli was particularly good, though not a large portion. We mainly ate local food in Tobago so it made a change to... More

My wife and I have just finished a 10 day stay at Casters Retreats, which we mainly enjoyed, apart from the restaurant. The menu are typical European food options and I think this is done as the rest of the village serves local food styles. A reasonable business decision to serve something different to the others. On the first night... More

We have just returned from the most wonderful 5 days at Castara Retreats, and the restaurant, like the rest of our stay, was wonderful. The view is gorgeous, the cocktails and food were delicious and fresh -- the fish was great, the pasta perfect, we loved it all. Kenny, who runs the restaurant, couldn't be lovelier -- be sure to...

Popped in when the bar was closed and the staff were just setting up. We were made very welcome even though we didn't want much apart from a quick drink. Beautiful setting, chilled, clean and relaxed. Will return for food in the near future.
