The Verandah is a favourite of mine especially for business lunch. The menu usually has one of fish, chicken, meat or vegetable making choices easy and quick, along with the service. I can guarantee a tasty meal and a lunch in 45 minutes.

The ambiance here is very relaxing and enjoyable for lunch as the building is an old fashioned home with many open doors and windows. The food is very good with a gourmet style Trinidadian menu. The fish of the day special of encrusted Mahi Mahi was a delicious entree and the Caramel Flan is good for desert. Their Tamarind juice... More

Food is very good in this family-run restaurant. The bar has a fantastic collection of rums and whiskies. Dont miss the catch of the day. Home-made ice creams are a must for dessert lovers. Prices are more than reasonable and hence value for money is excellent IMHO. I recommend it and will come back

Charming old time Woodbrook type of house with wooden floors, large open windows, an old time veranda with lots of plants, makes you feel at home immediately. Service is excellent, food is a bit limited but also excellent, tasty and lots of it. What they do they do well and it's very satisfying. I would say this is the best... More

Quaint old Trinidad house location with limited tables - creating a relaxed intimate atmosphere. Limited but good menu and good service. Only open occasionally for dinner so one needs to check! A favourite lunchtime venue for business people - and the place I took my now wife on a first date!

Ate at The Verandah last night. So far, this is the best dining we've had this trip. A handwritten menu, hospitable hosts and a great location near other establishments, we loved the dinner. We enjoyed a tomato based lentil soup to start followed by grilled shrimp and a crusted chicken stuffed with crab. Add a few rum and tonics and... More

Mrs. Viera was always hospitable with a phone voice that made one feel always welcome. .On arrival the staff treated our small party... More

This is our favorite restaurant for dinner - and plan carefully - while they are open for lunch all weekdays, they are open for dinner only on Thursdays and Saturdays. The food is excellent, the service great. We love it and recommend it.

Nice relaxing restaurant from the hustle and bustleof Port of Spain. The food is excellent, lots of local dishes. There is a little wait on the food though so it's a great place to relex with friends or connect with loved ones.
