Best meal in Tobago

My wife and I visited last Friday for our final evening meal in Tobago. We saved the best for last. Great food, intimate setting, and wonderful owners who make you feel like you are having dinner at home with friends.

We highly recommend eating at Salsa Kitchen in Scarborough. The food was excellent, fresh, and cooked with love. We had curry lobster and scallops, shrimp salsa, garlic bread and another seafood tapa. VERY IMPORTANT call in advance and make a reservation for this restaurant or you may not be served- because it is small. We recommend this place highly for... More

This was our second attempt at eating at Salsa, the first time we struggled to find it - it's not well signposted. On the evening we ate there it was a quiet night with only one other table of 5 or 6 people. There's not much of a view from the restaurant and the area feels a bit dodgy (we... More

Dear TimeZoneHopper, we are so happy that you enjoyed the food that we prepared for you, but I have some concerns, my hibiscus, orchids, heliconias, bananas, diffenbachia, crotons, bougainvillea, ferns, bromeliads, basil, thyme and all the others feel really sad that you did not appreciate their beauty and that you wanted another "view". You were "locked in" ? Did you... More

Went on a Saturday evening. The place was quiet as the owner, Paula, wasn't taking bookings due to being short-staffed at that time. I was welcomed though and had a selection from the menu. As before, I was very pleased with the food, quality and amount and I was able to chat with Paula [she is normally in the kitchen].... More

I enjoyed Salsa Kitchen. I had tried before to get a reservation in November 2012 before my husband and I got married but they were booked. We called a month ahead of time and got a reservation for March 2015. I am glad we got to experience it.After more than 2 years of waiting expectations are high. The atmosphere is... More
