“Jemma's great for our college group”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Our tour guides (Yes-Tourism) had arranged for our group of 19 students and 3 faculty to have lunch at Jemma's, where we enjoyed an open-air second floor section reserved for us. Having just returned from a glass bottom boat and snorkeling and hiking excursion to Little Tobago, we were all hungry. We were served family-style with generous portions of local cuisine, including dasheen, callalou, doubles, chicken and fish, and more. Even our strictest vegetarians were satisfied. After lunch, we enjoyed a stroll on the beach and perused a few shops in the neighborhood and taking photos, all the while gazing across the bay to the islands where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean in reef of volcanic variety. Jemma's is a local icon that travelers to the northeast end of Tobago should not miss.

“It's ok”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I ate here because I wanted to experience what everyone was talking about with it being so good. It turned out to be nothing that I would rave about. But maybe as a local I have had better and at cheaper prices too.
Everyone has different taste though, so try it for your own experience.

“Don't miss it”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Great. A must see.

Fabulous position - get there early or late to ensure a sea view table up the top.

We had lunch and decided to blow it all on a lobster. We ordered one to share - but someone who had made a phone order for the same meal didn't show up and they gave us 2 for the same price! The food was delicious - cant say more can you.
