I will never eat here again!...I took some co workers here on the Friday of restaurant week and I ordered the seafood speciality entrée...everything was over cooked....the squid was inedible..it was like trying to eat rubber, I told the waitress who nodded to me...and that was the sum total of their response...no other communication....when I got the bill, I proceeded...

My compliments to the Chef! I can remember when was the last time I really enjoy so much eating outside. From presentation to taste! The menu has many options, the cuisine of Peru, Mexico, Brazil and Italy stand out. We had Pollo Milanesa, Vegetarian Alfredo Pasta (custom made), Raviolis Fritos, and Veg Burger, side orders of mash potatoes, french fries,... More

I visited the one in chagauramas with the sea view it was breath taking. This restaurant has great service, food and view. The one in movietowne Plaza is nice as well But doesn't offer the view, I suggest visiting the one by the sea for lunch you won't regret and the one in Port of Spain for dinner and a... More

Decent food. Some burgers are very decent, specially if you are hungry. Bad service as usual in Trinidad (occasionally you'll find a server who is a little nice, but just a little, don't spect to much) Decor definitely needs an updated!!

Ok... Review for Chagas branch at Peakes Marina. Good a certain part of day...for coffee/'drink and cool breeze. Early evening 6pm, head banging corruption for music. Could not find the appeal in ordering our meal with my friends. We all left as exploding senses made it not a fitting ambience. For a good night out for a drink the bar... More

It was my sister's birthday and we went there to have lunch and celebrate. Lyn was out waitress and she was just amazing. The front receptionist seated us in less than a minute, and then came Lyn - all bubbly and full of personality! You know you can tell someone who is faking it, she definitely didn't! It wasn't even... More

I am impressed with Zanzibar's Food menu. (Dinner at Chaguanas Branch). I needed a change from the Ruby Tuesdays and the TGIs and Zanzibar turned out to be the ideal fare. The food was delicious and the prices were surprisingly reasonable for the quality of food. My special drink is the Caribbean Zangria. The ambience is fun and welcoming and... More

This place is exactly average. Decor, food, service, drinks, presentation. If you have 1hr to kill before a movie pop in. The experience was neither bad nor good...put it this way the best thing was the french fries!

The food was good, the service not good. We sat outside which was very pleasant. Two of the three of us ordered starters, one came, the second was delayed. It came at the same time as the two entrees with the excuse that it is made fresh. I hurried through my starter so as not to have my colleagues waiting,... More
