This was a surprise to me. Very quiet and peaceful, the service was painfully slow, but perfect if you wanted a romantic meal for two, which we did. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. The accompanying wine complimented the meal well.

I saw an article in the newspaper recently about Joseph's. The writeup was so good that I decided to give them a try. After all my only experience of Arabian food in a restaurant was many years ago at a place called Ali Baba's in shoppes of Maraval. So in the restaurant and hotel industry first impressions go a long... More

Excellent Mediteranian food in Trinidad. Good atmosphere, friendly staff & greeted by Mr. Joseph. It is Monday night and main dinning room was set up & reserved for a private function. Try their mixed kabob with mezzeh appetizer. Lots food, make sure you go when you are hungry.

We visited during lunch time, the restaurant wasn't very busy and we wondered if it was open! The manager greeted us and assured us they were serving lunch. We ordered mushroom starters and chicken kebab. It was good, the Middle East salad was really tasty! A lovely atmosphere and worth the money.

I visited Joseph's for the first time, during Restaurant Week. We were a party of 7, and my expectancy was fulfilled. Food was delicious, and service was quite good, except that there were too long intervals between courses. I accepted that, due to the fact it was restaurant week, and the place was teeming with patrons. I will return to... More

Joseph's restaurant is a little gem tucked away in maraval. The ambience is warm, welcoming and relaxing and the staff are always friendly and helpful. The menu had a wide variety of dishes to choose from but i always opt for the traditional meze plate. This assortment of small Lebanese dishes including kibbi, hummus, tabouli and kebabs to name a...

I heard some mixed reviews about it, some people not knowing what kind of food was served there. On arrival, you could tell everything was professional and well set up. Food came as soon as a small group was seated, excellent mediterranean starters like kibbeh and hummus. After the quick presentation, we had a choice of chicken, lamb or fish... More
