Great food - even better view

Great food - like many places in Tobago you just choose your protein and it's served with whatever vegetables they have prepared that day. I had pork and fish which were both superb. This place isn't much to look at from the road - however the view is amazing with a panoramic view looking over... read more

My wife and I had lunch here last week. One dish on offer - a simple and delicious Chicken Pilau with Potato Salad. On a bend high above the water the Kings Bay cafe would be easy to miss and drive by, but if you enjoy local cooking of a simple style in a basic restaurant then do stop and... More

This is a tiny shack in Delaford with astounding views across the bay (unfortunately not when its dark!!). It is clearly not a touristy spot and more a local's restaurant but nevertheless is very welcoming for visitors. It is very basic but the food is cooked specially to order and is excellent quality. The baked chicken leaves Kentucky Fried at... More

Kings Bay Cafe is one of the most delightful experiences in Tobago. Tiny, with a simple menu, the view from the balcony over Kings Bay is second to none, and the interaction with the owners is warm and welcoming. Despite the limited, homely menu, this is a place worth the drive. However, on the day we went the owners were... More

We had lunch because of some good reviews on tripadvisor. I would say not too bad. Lady who served was very kind and helpful. Views are ok. I would not recommend this place to anyone, I am sorry. Wish I could do better than that...

The restaurant is perched above a cliff with a great view of the bay. The menu is pretty much fixed as to what is prepared on that day and they do deliver a sizable portion of food. The fish plate on that day was Tuna and it was really good, prepared with a tomato sauce it was reminiscent of a... More

We went to King's Bay Café already two times and both times were amazing. The food is fresh cooked and the service is very kind and friendly. They have a superb garlic sauce and grilled bread. I will recommend this place, absolutely.
