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

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

Excellent Food, modern, peaceful ambiance, and friendly staff. Situated in a lovely tucked away part of Port Of Spain.

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!!!

I dined here for the first time a couple of weeks ago with my Husband and our friend. I was definitely impressed with the wonderful service and the attention given to us by our servers. I loved and really appreciated the fact that the place was not crowded and you really get that intimate experience that so many Trinidad restaurants... More

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.
