Despite the location being out of the way and lonely, I would recommend because of the food and service that I got for my birthday. The taxi charged us $140TTD so its best if you have a vehicle. Also call to reserve since they open...More

Great setting by Buccoo Bay, especially when they play the steel pans down below on a Sunday evening. Fortunately the food is as good as the views and sounds, even if the prices are rather high. Some unusual fusion food with good use of spices...More
