Consistently great service

I love this place! My bf and I visited two weeks ago with his brother from out of town for dinner. The service was top notch as usual. The night we went, there were 2 very large tables and our waiter was nice enough to prompt us about ordering so that our food was not delayed behind the large... read more

As the name suggests - this is a premiere restaurant - fine food, fine service and fine dining room too! Located at the BP Billiton building adjacent to Movietowne the restaurant has parking and security

Prime is arguably the best restaurant in Trinidad. The dining room is decorated in tasteful dark hues, but with large windows overlooking the fountains outside. The menu is classic grill, and perhaps a tad unimaginative. Nonetheless the food is superb - the scallops were divine, and the steak was cooked to perfection. Service was quiet and professional. The wine list... 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
