We ate at Caribbean kitchen 3 times and always had a very tasty meal. We particularly enjoyed the jerk chicken and fish of the day, the potato wedges, and had barracuda for the first time. The view is stunning and the cocktails delicious, both non alcholic and alcoholic. The desserts are also delicious and the staff very friendly. The restaurant is a little more expensive than eating in Castara, but the food we had was nicely presented and worth it. It is great to have a restaurant at Castara retreats and to not have to walk down to the village every night. it does get quite busy, so best to book a table.

Situated in Castara Retreats, its a no brainer that you have to eat here at least once during your stay.
You may need to book as it gets busy (busy for Tobago, that is!)
Spot on food and a constant supply of cold beers and cocktails, not much more you want right?! well wrong..... you get great service as well!

Its not the cheapest place, but your on holiday right, so do it at least once and you will enjoy some freshly cooked local food, with all the smells and tastes of Tobago.

We had a few different dishes and all were ace! from local caught fish of the day (that morning from the bay you can see from your table) to jerk chicken, which is a huge fav of mine and it was on the nail!

The staff helped with everything and were always on hand for top ups etc, so I personally couldnt fault the place.

To be honest im getting hungry just writing this review! so if your planning to head to Tobago, do it as soon as you can and have a ball!

First time.... everything was fresh!
Fresh passion fruit juice, freshly caught fish... everything was cooked with love. The view is breath taking! Definitely recommend reserving a table for around 5:30 in time to catch the amazing sunset !
Also really recommend the catch of the day as well as the chocolate mousse and pineapple cheesecake! Oh, and passion fruit mojitos.... definitely number one in Tobago!

We stayed at the Retreats and this restaurant on site was one of our favourites at Castara. The views are amazing and perfect for sipping cocktails and watching the sun go down. Staff were friendly and the food was consistently good - we particularly enjoyed the Jerk Chicken/fish and the lovely veggie sides!

The location's wonderful, right up in the trees with lovely views. There are no fewer than five main course options for vegetarians. We tried three between us and all were really good - home-made pasta, home-made veggie burgers and potato wedges, and an aubergine dish. Killer cocktails!
