A good place to eat lobster

There is no menu so ask for the prices if you are on a budget. I had fish - barracuda - which was tasty and cost 80TT. My friends had lobster, costing 210TT each. They are large so one is enough for two unless you are very hungry. The traditional sides - rice, pigeon peas, macaroni pie, etc are... read more

Frank took great care of us with his excellent service. Food was nice, and the same sauce dressed your choice of meat or seafood.

This is a very pleasant open-sided restaurant on the main road through Speyside. The menu is quite short and unfussy. We opted for a lobster each. It was delivered to our table sizzling hot and was a great meal washed down with a couple of glasses of Carib beer. It would have been helpful to have had the usual instruments... More

This is the place to go for an excellent lobster supper - took 20mins from order to service - just time for a G & T aperitivo! Looked tremendous and tasted just as good, cooked just right, juicy, tasty, lightly spiced Carib style, great flavoursome sauce to tip on your timbale of rice! Nice salad and crisply cooked veggies -... More

We were the only customers as it was low season, and Frank, the owner, entertained us with stories about the history of Speyside and about it's various colorful citizens! The food was excellent, we both had the shrimp which was cooked creole style. No dessert was available, but it was a very cool experience!

A pleasant little restaurant serving typical Caribbean fare. It is best to book and tell them what meat you want so they can get it in fresh. The service is good and the food is well cooked and presented. Service was fine and the staff very friendly. The cost of the meal was very good value and makes a change... More

I decided to try a new restaurant in Speyside and came across Birdwatchers. The meal was mediocre, but what made it worse was the extremely slow service. Our meal took close to 45 minutes to be served and it was not even warm. A very small piece of macaroni pie, callaloo, rice and a piece of chicken (either thigh or... More

The lobster is recommneded but as we were eating later we opted for... More

Great local food ...fabulous lobster and really welcoming staff...a real find! Get away from the over priced pap they serve you at local hotels (mentioning no names!!) and get some good home cooking. Totally recommend it
