Consistently enjoyable

My husband hosted a small business dinner here again this week. As always, the food was delicious and the service excellent. This is an expensive choice, even for Trinidad, but one can always be sure of a great steak (not an easy item to find on the island!) and efficient and pleasant attention... read more

I've had dinner here twice and I can say with certainty that I won't be going again. Don't get me wrong, the food is good, but at best it's okay, not superb. I've done Michelin star restaurants that were cheaper-priced with way better service and selection, so I don't think it's worth my time (or palette) to pass by again.

My husband and I went to Prime for our Anniversary and it was a top of the line event. We were greeted at the door by a friendly hostess and each person we passed welcomed us to prime. They had placed fresh flowers on our table in honor of our event. We started out with cocktails and a lovely starter... More

I visited for the first time for my sister's birthday and I think I'm hooked. Natalie, Robert and the rest of staff that we came into contact with was more than welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Wonderful experience. Kudos!

Prime was the perfect location to celebrate our anniversary. We arrived 30 minutes early, and were immediately accommodated and escorted to a nice table with excellent ambiance and view of the outside water feature. For starters we ordered: Calamari and the waiter suggested the Panco Crusted Lobster bites. The calamari was a bit spicy for my liking, but the lobster... More

Those were the words of my guests, who seemed to have had in their words a mediocre experience (not bad) at Prime twice in the last 5 months. This visit was anything but. We had a couple of new 'amuse bouche' items compliments of the chef, these are items which will form part of the new menu ( I agree... More

I have been a Prime customer for many years. However the manager Debra took it up several notches with this years Mothers Day brunch. Best in Trinidad. Keep it up Debra and staff!!!
