Okay Experience

Went there for a family lunch celebration. While we got there on time, they were not ready. In fact, they seem to have been still doing preparations for lunch after coming off of breakfast. I have no problem with this, just don't confirm the reservation if you know you will not be ready. That's... read more

The scenic drive to the Lighthouse is part of a worthwhile wonderful experience. The menu is not lengthy but there are choices most would enjoy including vegetarian options. It's a friendly laid back restaurant with tasty food and drinks and romantic ambiance for dinner.

I went here for dinner with 2 kids aged 7 and 8. The kids meals are a great value, with the chicken tenders quite nice, lightly battered and not greasy and quite a sizeable portion. The adult burger is also a good value, where is the size is comparable to local sports bars burgers, with a generous portion of fries... More

I ordered the BBQ Ribs, it was cold and tasted recooked. The fries cheap, frozen McCain bag fries. The BBQ sauce tasted like cheap store bought BBQ sauce which was dumped onto my Ribs. The Ribs were the already cut, processed type. The service was good. But the food for the price, leads a lot to be desired. My partner... More

The dinner was very tasty but portions were a bit small. Not sure if they were thinking of transitioning to fine dining with the size of portions and prices. Nonetheless it was good.

Lighthouse Restaurant serves a great dinner buffet every Thursday. We got there at 6:30 pm and so we were a bit too late for the usual spectacular sunset but there were still some beautiful colours in the clouds. The service has definitely improved at Lighthouse so if you were put off by poor service in the past give them another... More

6 of us went for dinner and the view of the marina is lovely. The potions are very good no complaints but 3 of the fish dishes the potatoes were all cold but the fish was wonderful. My chicken special was on the dry side. I would try again just for the view.

We arrived at 12:30pm, we had a lot to catch up on so we were talking and talking. Keisha our waitress left and did not say a word to us, so we had to ask for help when we needed service, we were told that Simon would be our waiter, Simon seemed not to understand our request for a glass... More

This restaurant has a cosy laid back appear. But its drinks prices are steep. I wouldn't order another beer there as the prices are super inflated compared to average inland prices. For example, a Guiness at this restaurant goes for about three (3) times the average retail inland TT $15 price.

The ambiance here is great, especially for the kids. Very nice view of the marina. They have a very affordable lunch menu. However, service is very slow. The restaurant was almost empty and we still had to wait quite a bit.
