On my second trip to Tobago, I was adamant I had to try this restaurant as I saw it was top of the list of ratings. However, I was left disappointed. Food was alright, nothing spectacular. I ordered a tuna burger and it was so tiny! The view is great though, but still... not filling!

It is August 2, 2014. I just chatted with the owner, a pleasant chap, and he told me to expect the restaurant to be open in about a month. I recommend that you call to be sure it is open before you make the drive, although the drive is a valuable experience in and of itself.

I reviewed King's Bay Cafe in April. My review was responded to by the owner. I wish to give further information in regard to my review. When our party of four approached the Cafe, a man was sitting on the front stoop talking to another man. We said we had come to eat, and he responded that they were not... More

My good friend Steve Willis took us to see Mike at Kings Bay Cafe. He told us the food was fabulous. He wasn't wrong! The owner Mike is a great guy and above all a chef with a 'passion' for cooking. I had the best tuna steak I've ever had, freshly caught that morning from local fishermen. Its a small... More

We went for my girl friend's birthday lunch and just as we got there disaster struck: she had a flat tire. When we tried to get the nuts loose to change it, they were locked on tighter than a nun's you-know-what. I went in to apologise to the chef/owner for being late for our reservation and explained why. Not phased,... More

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. We do have in our description that it is recommended that you should call before you visit us. We were closed due to situations out of our control.

We put this place in our saves on trip advisor before arriving in tobago as it had great reviews, we called in mid afternoon during a drive around the island, we were lucky enough to get a table on the veranda which has spectacular views across the bay. The food served is home made and cooked to order. We had... More

Having recently returned to Tobago we headed straight to the Kings Bay Café in Delaford to sample another fantastic lunch which was a fresh fillet of Tuna locally caught and landed in the bay below the café that morning. Can't get fresher than that. It was perfectly cooked by Mike the owner/chef. This time I brought two friends along who... More
