Outstanding menu, very attentive service and an incredible wine list. Any foodie would love it. The beef medium rare was as good as anywhere in the world.

Prime is a nice restaurant. Not the best strak you'll ever have but the best you'll have at Trinidad and Tobage. The wine options are good. The service needs to be improved as frequently we needed to start staring at the waiter for him to notice us and came down to take our orders.

Went for a romantic dinner with my wife and ordered a Mojito. What came back was a mix between Mojito and Margarita, not impressed. The food was lovey, but the AC is set to artic setting. Even with a shawl it was freezing inside. As a consequence , the food cooled down too quickly ruining the experience. Please adjust the... More

This restaurant was disappointing. The quality of steak was poor. It was not prepared well and definitely not worth th price. They are overpriced and I would not recommend anyone to spend their hard earned money at this place.

I often visit this restaurant, however, I ordered the lam on the menu and asked to have the sauce changed from a wine sauce to bbq. I do not consume alcohol at all. When the lamb came, of course it had the wine sauce. Our waiter, who was very polite told them runner immediately about the wine sauce issue. The... More

Let's toast to a restaurant with a decade of experience delivering fine food, service and wine! I have been entertaining my business colleagues, friends and family here that long without disappointment. When asked, where can you dazzle them for a great meal experience for that business deal or special occasion in the most outstanding atmosphere. The answer that comes to... More

I dont think I can recommend this establishment due to its unwarranted prices especially when Fiesta Plaza is so close by. The food quality is to be expected from so called up end eating locations but wow those prices! Not warranted at all.

My husband and I went for dinner on the 19th December for dinner. We chose Prime as we have dined here in the past and had a great experience. Last night however was very disappointing and I wish I had gone with my initial instincts and left! The hostess was great. Very welcoming and we also had a very nice... More
