“Loved food 4 u”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

Chef Derek is one of the sweetest, kindest restaurant chefs I've ever met. His food is super tasty, and his post dinner rapping was amazing. We all felt at home in his restaurant and would go back for another meal in a heartbeat. Thanks Derek for a great night!

“INCREDIBLE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

I absolutely love Caribbean food, so this review might be a bit biased. That said, this was some of the best food that I have ever had. I had an incredible fish dish and delicious soup appetizer. Derrick is a dream, so kind and so talented. If you are visiting Tobago, do yourself a favor and try Food4U.

“Awesome experience, great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

We picked Food4U because of the Tripadvisor reviews, and are very glad we did - it was the nicest food we had on T&T, and the best experience too!

On the day, Derrick had been busy putting up new decorative fencing around the place, and was a little bit flustered - he didn't have any waitstaff on call for the evening, and so he was the head waiter, the bus boy, the chef, and the entertainment. Of course, that meant that there was a lot of waiting between courses; not really a problem, of course, but it was the only letdown in what was otherwise one of the finest restaurant experiences I've had.

The food was absolutely awesome and very well presented to boot. Derrick is very knowledgeable about the food he makes, and is very happy to share ideas and feedback - and even offers to teach you make some of the dishes, if you want.

Really, I could wax lyrical for thousands of words here, but let me be brief, for once: If you're in Tobago, don't miss Food4U. If / when I make it back, I'll certainly come and pay Derrick another visit!

“A Fabulous Tobago Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Derrick, the chef and owner, has got something really good going on here. He works hard at making your experience an authentic one. The food is local and very tasty. The atmosphere is quaint and simply lovely and Derrick is always thinking of you, his client, and improving on all aspects of your visit. The guy not only cooks well but he provides his own voice as a source of entertainment.. now how can you not like all that!!!!! Thanks Derrick.. we Canadians miss you already.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

We met Derrick (owner/chef) at the beach. He was doing a bit of marketing on his day of. He was such a nice person that we decided to book a table for 6. We did not expect what we got: incredible food, really nice music, local decor, super service despite the fact that Derrick's waitress didn't show up that night. It was raining so Derrick graciously sent his father to pick us up. That man had us laughing all the way there and back. The food was the best I've tasted on the Island. It took a little longer than expected due to the circumstances but was well worth the wait. To close the evening, Derrick proceeded to sing an improv song apologizing for the delay. That was the cherry on the sunday. We got home simply delighted by the whole experience.
