Average and identical breakfast.

La Havana Cafe staff were somewhat hospitable. The food was average but not bad although, it can do with more variation to their menu as the breakfast everyday is basically identical.

I'm surprised this place doesn't have better reviews. I loved the atmosphere, nestled amongst the trees in the hills of Scarborough, and I thought the atmosphere was perfect putting a different spin on the typical West-Indian vibe. The Rum swizzle was mixed well and strong, the callaloo was modern but of the tastiest I've ever had, fish was delicious, and... More

Food was tasty, but the menu needs to e a bit more varied. Its the usual most restaurants have: chicken n chips, burgers, etc. Was looking forward to some creole food and more indian delicacies. A lot of sea food, but we were allergic to sea food, so food choices were a bit limited.

There are better options on the island for fine dining. This might be considered strictly if in the area. The setting is nice and the food just ok.

We ate lunch here twice. Pleasant restaurant with ok views. Beef roti excellent. On both occassions the credit card machine wasn't working so we had to pay cash which was annoying as we rarely carry cash around and it left us short. The service was adequate and as it was quiet on both visits it didn't spoil our lunch.

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Although a little quiet as it was off-season, the atmosphere was good and the food excellent. Definitely recommend it!

Went for a casual evening to have some wine and meet up with friends. My glass was empty for over 30mins and no one came over to ask if we wanted another drink. When we did ask for another glass, I felt as if I was begging for service. They need to learn how to up sell what the restaurant... More

Ate here most days when staying at the Bacelot Beach Hotel and as the title suggests, the food was extremely good. Every dish was cooked to perfection although for Tobago, it was a little pricey. However the service was OK at best. Bar one or two staff, all others couldn't muster a smile between them which made you feel you... More
