If you are looking for a steak house with quality meat, this is the place for you. The menu has a great variety of steaks that are well prepared and service is good. They also have a long wine list with quite high prices. But considering the prices - 4 people had one course dinner and few beers, we were set back £175 or $275 - I am unsure if it's worth that much, mostly after visiting the sister restaurant Buzo which offers great food and service for much lower prices. The Prime I think is priced mostly by its location, it being in the BHP Billiton Building and right next to the Mariott Hotel, but you have few other places in Port of Spain which are just as good and for less money.
Nice to try once or on occasion.

What can i say, prime has great food, it is obvious all their meats are imported and you can get the best of the best but with that said it does have a local flair. This restaurant is modern and is great for business dinners. The wine list is great and i feel that for approx 300usd which is 1800ttd for a couple although one of the higher prices restaurants in trinidad it definately is worth a trip.

If you are visiting Port of Spain and looking for a steak house atmosphere(linen table cloths, good steak menu, good wine list), this place is for you. But it will "set you back" a few bucks. Dinner for 2 persons, bottle of wine, cocktails, etc, will cost about $250 US. You can cut the cost by eliminating the bottle of wine and requesting the "house wine". But the wine list is extensive and interesting.

The food portions are generous and well presented. The service prompt and responsive. Car parking is not an issue..front door parking.

I would recommend this restaurant It is similar to McCormick & Schimicks in the US.

Good food, good service, quality surroundings (although modern rather than cosy and romantic). Ideal for a business dinner or a special family occasion.
