My husband and I stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. The server explained that since it was Sunday the menu was limited then proceeded to tell us our choices. I had the BBQ chicken, callaloo (sp?), and green salad. Everything was wonderful, especially once I added a bit of the hot sauce provided. My husband had the green salad, callaloo,... More

We went to this restaurant for dinner after a reference from one of the residents of Trinidad. The food isn't Delicious, however the price was okay, so it was worth it. We ordered the fish and chips, and chicken and chips. The fish was freshly made, however, the chicken was lukewarm, which made it not that enjoyable. I commented to... More

Great seafood joint on Ariapita Avenue. The seafood creole is great stuff. The bartender is good for chatting to and makes some lovely drinks if asked to make off the menu.

Nice outdoor seating, friendly staff, the food could pass but the owners of this restaurant and other should be charged for overpriced menus in Trinidad.

It was the fresh air, but not good when the street has traffic. The fumes would be a problem, love the Saturday Soups and Friday Night Lime(Party)!

250 dollars for 2 main course meals: plus 4 beers led to a 400 d ollar bill, excessive taxes and service charges: a scam. Then what did we get on our plates: 76% white rice, a small heap of cheap vegetables (maily carrots) and a piece of fish of a not very generous measure. Cheeky service. This was our first... More

I made two stops at the Sweet Lime as my guesthouse was just down the street. The first time, I was underwhelmed by the fish and chips I had for dinner, and taken aback when the server pointed out that the 10% tip that had been automatically charged to my bill didn't actually go to her, so if I wanted...

Very tasty and even better at a reasonable price. You can order the jerk or regular bbq chicken and then add hot pepper to your liking. It comes with a side dish and a green salad. The menu is vast and rhe staff is welcoming and ready to assist. Most enjoyable meal.
