My sister and I had dinner here last year and were very satisfied with the meal. The place is beautiful, very rustic and we had a table overlooking the Buccoo Bay. What a view! It was a Sunday so towards the end of the evening we could hear soft steel pan music wafting on the ocean breeze from the Buccoo... More

Oh what a disappointment from last year! The place looks run down, the food was only OK the service average. Apparently there has been a change of ownership. There are a few other decent restaurants near so avoid this one until you read they have got it together.

We are indeed sorry to hear of your less than satisfactory return visit to our facility, and though the points you have made regarding the conditions are debatable,as there have been improvements effected to the overall restaurant facility with a major overhaul to the operations therein. The ownership has not changed , the management has, with a primary focus on... More

I went here and was disappointed. There was no parking available. Although the rustic setting was a nice plus, the tables were rickety. The food was ok but nothing to die for. First and last for me.

Reservation made days ago, stressing it was my fathers 70th birthday and I wrote the details in their diary. Arrive no reservation, terrible service, no apologies, waiter didn't understand anything, food was OK but they sent appetizers and main courses at the same time ... disaster. Manager only came out once. No wonder there were no other diners ... would... More

My daughter who lives in Tobago, booked a table for 6 people last night for my 70th birthday celebration. When we arrived, they had given the table to another group, so with our help made up a new setting, using odd tables and chairs. It then went downhill very fast, the waiter was absolutely useless, he finally took our order... More

This was supposed to be a rustic restaurant on the sea with good food... Instead it was downright grungy. Old unmatched furniture. Disorganized, and dirty. We took foreign guests with such deep regret by the end of the evening. One flustered waitress alone serving. Not enough cutlery or glasses for our table of 12. Glasses sticky. Lamb was raw, wine...

My family and I visited this restaurant for dinner, the place was quiet as only 1 couple was there. The server took extremely long to bring our drinks and the food that was ordered. However, the food was very tasty! They serve mainly seafood and they do not have vegetarian or options for children. The place is outdoor and near... More

The restaurant is very simple and overlooks the fishing boats which come in every night. The food is excellent with generous portions. I recommend the ceviche appetizer and the nylon pool main course. They also have a Venezuelan dessert which is great

I was disappointed with the restaurant. Because of the great reviews I had high expectations. The restaurant is in an excellent location overlooking a quaint fisherman's dock. Nice Seabreeze and open air styling. The decor of the restaurant was also fishy. Old tables and chairs rickety and scratchy looking greeted me. I'm a big girl and I wasn't too sure... More
