Amazing food, wonderful atmosphere and such friendly staff. If you're staying around these parts then do yourself a favour and get along for a real taste of Tobago.

Visited here with a group of friends. Loved the ambience and personalized touch - from the decor, to the food, to the service. Each dish was prepared to perfection, with an unexpected twist in flavour. Especially loved the garlic bread, lamb and pork. Will definitely return.

Once upon a time, a most charming couple called Ian and Paula decided that Tobago's array of ethnic food was missing something. Tapas! A little gem of a restaurant, small in size and plates but big in taste! Somewhere in a Scarborough neighbourhood hidden away from it all, Salsa Kitchen takes you back to Spain but injects some Caribbean flavour... More

First impressions are lasting... as I arrived at Salsa Kitchen I was immediately in love with the ambiance. The lighting, the lush foliage, the little details in the decor, the rustic rough-round-the-edges finish. Before the first plate arrived we knew we had chosen well... the scent of Paula's cooking made its way from the kitchen to our table and it... More

After many years I finally made it to Salsa Kitchen and it more than exceeded my expectations. The perfect home style cosy friendly Caribbean atmosphere and vibe, married with a variety of flavourful dishes. The lamb Caribbean, pork and salsa shrimp were the perfect bites. Ian, Paula and Ivana-Sol were gracious hosts and I wish them well. Great quality, perfect... More

Visited here twice during our holiday. Owned and run by a couple with the gentleman hailing from UK. Very friendly - only 6 tables. Limited choice of menu which consists of "tapas" - small dishes. The suggestion is that 3 per person will do - and we'd agree. Some very tasty food on offer - not cheap but definitely worth... More

Although hidden away and not in a great part of town, the owners have created a cute little terrace with good ambiance. The food is really good but I would say a bit overpriced (hence 4 rather than 5 star) definitely a must try whilst in Tobago and the lamb is amazing

If you like tapas you must try Salsa Kitchen! There's a limited menu but it might include lobster, lamb and duck. It's impossible to label any one cooking style but the result of recipes picked up on travels around the world is an amazing foodie cocktail. There's a limited wine selection (red or white) but do save some space for... More
