Heap and cheerful.

A welcome beer after the walk into Speyside. It's not posh and Frank doesn't approve of you only having one drink! I should think it has a good atmosphere when the band is playing.

We ate twice still this restaurant recently. The chicken and fish were very good. I really like their sauces for they are a nice blend of spices. Even their salad dressing is unique. I have had previously, the best lobster dinner ever (on Tobago) here. I remember when they were first starting and the food has always been delicious. I... More

Frank who runs the restaurant will be only too happy to get you a cold beer, absolutely fresh lobster strait from the sea and acquaint you with the name and species of the birds flying through the trees just outside this most authentic of Caribbean cafe experiences, and he takes credit cards!

When we travel in the Caribbean , we always try to allow LOTS of time for everything. Not everyone rushes around at a fast pace. We don't expect speedy service anywhere. However , this place was a bit ridiculous. We didn't order anything special...just their regular lobster lunch and a couple of Carib beers. We got the beers right away.... More

There were plenty of birds in and around the restaurants, probably because the staff put out fruit for them The Bananaquits, mocking birds and grackles are cheeky and it is unwise to leave food on the table while you are getting something else.

We chose this spot due to Jemma's Tree House being closed for the holidays. The wait was over 50 minutes, the service was piss poor. I had to remind them of our order more than four times even though I placed the order before we were seated. The food finally arrived and it was colder than a dog's nose. We... More

We called in to the Birdwatchers after a recommendation and were extremely pleased that we did. The waitress was very helpful, she even took the trouble to explain why other diners meals were ready before ours, her customer services skills were outstanding. The menu isn't extensive but all the food we saw coming from the kitchen looked lovely. Our choice... More

We had lunch here last week after driving the length of Tobago's east coast road. It seemed like the liveliest restaurant at around mid-day. There were other people eating in the restaurant and we observed that the portions were huge so we shared 3 meals between 4 of us, this makes it better value for money. The waitress obliged us...
