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

We did reserved for dinner nice foot, but V-E-R-Y slow going cooling. In 2 hours we did only get soup and salad, and when 4 customers claimed they were thrown out and therefor we left too. The 1 Star is for the funny moment, and the owner did not treat the customers very well.

We went to The Blue Crab for both lunch and dinner. Alison gave us the most fantastic feeling of warmth and welcome and Kenneth cooked some terrific food. Price, service, quality 10 out of 10! If you are staying in Bacolet the restaurant is a 20-30min walk and well worth a visit. This is a little gem and we thoroughly... More
