“A jewell”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2011

If your idea of a holiday is to stay in a smart hotel with all the modern facilities of that of a large chain do not come here, but if you are looking for the most wonderful tobagan hotel with delicious food served by the friendliest attentive staff then the kariwak is the place
for you. This small hotel was created 29 years ago by Mr Mrs Clovis whose vision was to create a holistic, relaxing intimate hotel and boy have they succeeded. My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary here , and could not think of a better place we stayed for nine nights and had no complaints whatsoever. The rooms are air conditioned with separate wc and shower area, beds are firm made daily with white cotton sheets, pillows are plump and comfortable . Bedside lamps cater for the evening read. There are no tea/ coffee in rooms but an insulated jug which will be filled on request by the kitchen, chilled water is also available in the reception/ bar area free of charge. The open air dining room is ventilated by ceiling fans and allows the ambience and tropical birds to entertain you, watch the sugar they love to peck at the crystals. The food is very imaginative with flavors that bounce off the tongue, an example of a dinner menu would be a homemade soup, followed by a simple salad, a main accompanied with various vegetables and rice, a desert or homemade ice-cream , freshly brewed coffee or try the kariwak spiced tea a homemade blend of herbs and spices. Breakfast is equally delicious, flying fish, Fresh fruit, omlettes, homemade bread,muesli, yoghurt to name but a few choices. Unlimited tea or coffee is served on request by chatty, professional ladies. Cynthia Clovis visits every table morning and evening checking that all is ok and just to have a little chat. The pool area is surrounded by tropical palms and plants offering shade when required ,the pool is small but as the hotel only has 24 rooms , it will never become overcrowded. The kariwak offers everything to make a visit to Tobago memorable.

“Great Lunch! So yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2011

This is a favorite for our group. We enjoy eating here every time. Had a quick lunch here one Sunday and it was perfect. Our server Suzette was so nice. A couple of us had some sandwiches and they were phenomenal. The others had the hot lunches of stewed chicken, callaoo, macaroni pie, rice, vegetables etc and they loved it. The chef really has a wonderful hand. Everything has an interesting flavor that makes you want to eat more. Prices are comparable to anywhere else in Tobago and with service and food like this I recommend it to anyone!.

“A good spot for lunch .......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2011

Came here for lunch with family and friends. Kicked off with a knock-out rum punch! Followed on with grilled fish and salad. Just the right quantity for a lightish lunch. Hub had a spicy beef curry which he enjoyed immensely.

Took a tour round the gardens as they grow a lot of their own salad, herbs etc. Pretty place with the restaurant being situated in a thatched bamboo semi open-air wooden construction. Cosy and welcoming yet serene and tranquil.

Definitely worth a lunch stop.

“excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2011

We stayed at Kariwak and found the food to be excellent. The breakfasts are outstading with tons of fresh fruit, homemade yogurt and granola and interesting main dishes every morning. We had dinnner once, a fixed price affair that was excellent and fairly reasonlbly priced for 4 courses- about $30. We probably should have just had dinner there every night but wanted to explore- we didn't find anything better. Dinner service is slow, but comparable to some of the other restaurants we ate at- they don't want to rush you.
