Cruising for Crab

It was a rainy day so we went to Scarborough to see the museum and the market. A big cruise ship had just come in, so everyone there asked us if we were off the boat. LOL. We had researched the Blue Crab and just as we were standing outside, trying to decide if we were actually hungry or not,... read more

We stopped in for lunch and even though they had a private party that reserved a large part of the restaurant, they were able to accommodate us - and I am so happy they did! Although we had a limited menu (2 choices - fish or chicken), the food was very well prepared and tasty (my husband and I both... More

This restaurant is family owned and yes I am related to the owners, my sister and brother-in-law... I wouldn't rate it a 5 star if I didn't believe the service and food weren't excellent.. because you would visit and find me untruthful... It is a great place to eat with fresh good cooked daily.

If you are looking to enjoy some local cuisine prepared in a gourmet fashion, and a comfortable atmosphere; this is the place to visit. Annette and Kenneth (with chef- Kenneth Jr) have a lovely open-air restaurant in the veranda of their home nestled in the heart of Scarborough, and they treat you like family while you are there. My boyfriend... More

This small family-run restaurant in the middle of Scarborough offers good freshly cooked food at a reasonable price. When you arrive you could be stepping into someone's living room. There is a four course menu offered - the soup and salad are set and you are given a choice for the main course. We had a delicious crab soup served... More

My partner and I had seen a free supplement in the Independent about Tobago. The restaurant had a very good write up. We decided to check it out on our annual trip to Tobago. The restaurant was quiet on the evening that we visited as Sept is out of season. Our waitress was v friendly and polite. We had crab... More

I went there for a breakfast meeting and honestly I was not impressed. While all the standard for a restaurant was average, there was nothing that blew me away about this restaurant.
