Well, we was really hungry after a long day on the boat, lazy snorkeling, having fun etc etc. So we decided to stay in Buccoo and eat, instead of going back to Crown Point for dinner. Yeah an Italian restaurant, claiming to be the best on the island. Hmm, mediocre is closer to our conclusion! The dinner was not bad,... More

I don't know that it was worth the effort and time to get there from Mt. Irvine. Pasta dishes missed a little umph though the desserts were lovely. Wine selection was excellent as was the duck pate. We did have to wait over 15 minutes for someone to bring us menus and take our drink order so that was a... More

EXCELLENT food and very personable service. Chef Gabrielle and his crew were wonderful. An incredible selection of wines for such a small place.

We stayed in Tobago for two nights recently and had dinner at La Tartaruga on one of those nights. Delicious! We enjoyed the touch of a couple of amuse bouche type bits before our main courses arrived, both of which were very tasty - I had the arrabiata and my husband had the puttanesca. For dessert we shared an affogato... More

This restaurant is very interesting and a must for Italian food appreciators. Chef is very friendly and food is really good. I loved taste of the bruschetta specially. Prices are a bit over, but kind of worth it.

This was a really nice Italian restaurant ran by a delightful Italian Chef. The food was excellent and the Chef brought the food to our table and explained how each dish was prepared. Nice setting and I really cannot wait to go back and have some more of this rather delicious food. Our wine was corked but it was expertly... More

Food was FANTASTIC...The ingredients were fresh which added lots of flavour and you felt that homely vibe because the chef/owner personally came out and chatted and told you about the food and even gave us tastes of what he was trying. I would definitely eat here on my next trip to Tobago.

Just came back from this little restaurant, wow! The food is excellent, the owner and bartender both spent time talking to us, making you feel right at home. The pumpkin and grilled shrimp soup was superb. Overall the food is excellent, prices not too expensive and great ambiance. Only disappointment is that they only open for dinner - no breakfast...
