We arrived just before closing time for lunch after receiving a recommendation from the woman at the information desk at the port. Alison was welcoming, funny and warm. Her husband is a superb chef who is equally as welcoming. This is hands down the best restaurant experience we had in Tobago. The food was excellent and the service even better.... More

Private restaurant even in the middle of the busy capital. The meal usually comprises several dishes which come together with surprising flavours. Great for eat in or takeaway. Wonderful for a business lunch or for no occasion at all. It is a family- oriented business which further gives you that homely feeling- going the extra mile too just to ensure... More

Bored of the food in our nearby hotel we gave this place a try. Like other restaurants on the island you feel like you're eating on someone's patio! Just a handful of tables - yet service was painfully slow. Food was OK but expensive. Worth a visit as there are few alternatives in Scarborough but not special considering the price.

Our waitress (Juliet) made sure that we were very well looked after on our visit. She was very attentive and friendly. We were served lovely home cooked food. It was a 4 course set menu and we were asked if we had any food allergies when we booked. It was a very quiet evening when we went - my husband... More

This restaurant does not regularly open for lunch and dinner. I spoke to the manager and he seemed very relaxed as to whether they would open or not. As you need to arrange a taxi to and from this restaurant you take a chance that you could turn up and find them closed. We decided to have dinner at an... More

Blue Crab is above the hustle and bustle of busy Scarborough. Here you can eat on the verandah where a gentle breeze wafts through. The food is good and the staff are very welcoming.

Set four course meal with a choice of fish, shrimp. or chicken main. Each course was super tasty and as for the bakes, I could have eaten a dozen! Beer and wine cold and good.

There was no printed menu but we were given a description of the dishes on offer that day and choose the chicken stew. It arrived promptly with a little mound of rice, peas in coconut sauce and fried plantain, all absolutely delicious. This was easily the best meal we had in Scarborough which doesn't have a lot of restaurants. You... More
