We read about this restaurant in advance of our trip to Tobago (for our honeymoon) and heard some great things about the food. We can safely say that we were not disappointed! Some great local cuisine and one of the best meals had on our trip around the Caribbean. The real highlight was how welcome we were made to feel... More

T&T had a restaurant week in September. I used it as an excuse to visit this restaurant I had yet to try. A set meal at a reasonable price didn't disappoint at all. The crab soup was wonderful, followed by crab and fish cakes, then a coconut ice cream. The whole meal was delicious, and reasonably priced. Wines came by... More

Our family of 5 spent spring break on Tobago. We read about the Blue Crab and called to make reservations (a must b/c they only serve dinner on certain days). The owners, Allison and Kenneth, are just fabulous people. Allison made us feel immediately welcome and told us she "does the talking" and her husband (Kenneth) "does the cooking." Both... More

We had visited the Blue Crab in 1988 and on this return to Tobago went for an evening meal. We were warmly welcomed by Alison (still the owner and chef together with her husband). All the food was freshly prepared and cooked. The kingfish was outstanding together with the cassava and pumpkin salad. We had a non-alcoholic fruit punch with... More

First check the opening times it appears to be only open weekday lunchtimes. The atmosphere was very welcoming,the service friendly but slow. Serves 'authentic' local food The quality was very good but the menu choice was far too limited. Very disappointed there was no crab.

If you enjoy fish, the Blue Crab serves a great dinner - a set menu with a choice of fish, at a very reasonable price. Good service, and very friendly staff.

Ring to reserve a table for dinner (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) you won't be disappointed if you favour seafood. Great rum punches for aperitif followed by fish tea - a wonderful fish consomme with king fish and okra, then salad. We were then given a choice of crayfish, shrimp or king fish - all cooked to perfection. We couldn't manage a dessert. It... More

Unlike the previous reviews, the service when my friends and I visited was quite quick. Possibly because we were the only ones in the restaurant. We also enjoyed our meals, which covered the range of their small menu. The price was right and the meal hit the spot.

What can I say that is positive.... Fish was overcooked - not surprising as it took nearly 2 hours to arrive... Wine undrinkable Good rum punch
