“"Beautiful views, yummy food, great service!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

First visit to this restaurant that was recommended by friends and it certainly lived up to their reviews. We arrived just as they opened and we were welcomed by two friendly owners. There were 8 of us in our party and we were soon seated and eating the yummy fresh food..(the chocolate brownie finished us off perfectly)!
Service was very quick especially as we were a big group and didn't make a reservation.
Views were amazing!!

Definitely worth the trip!!!
Thank you!!!

“My favourite restaurant in Tobago!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Just got back from having a fantastic lunch at King's Bay Cafe. Have eaten here before and can safely say it is now my favourite restaurant in Tobago. We arrived just before they opened but were still made to feel welcome. We were a party of 8 and we all agreed on how nice the food was and genuine friendly service. The views from the open terrace where we ate were amazing have your camera ready! Definitely worth the trip!!!! Thank you :-)

“First rate restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

I find that I am adding to the long list of rave reviews for this restaurant, which shows its consistency in providing the very best. The four of us stopped yesterday and found everything to be outstanding; the food (our fresh tuna was perfectly cooked and seasoned as well as the cheeseburger), the hospitality from Chef/owner Mike and his wife Joanne, the very reasonable price, and of course the breathtaking view of King's Bay in Tobago. The coffee and brownie dessert were also delightful. Thanks for a wonderful time. Loy and Mike from Boston.

“Best restaurant in Tobago”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Kings Bay Cafe is a little jem. Run by a lovely American/English couple. Friendly Mikey and Joanne have lots local information to share with visitors and can direct you to some of the special near by beaches, great for snorkelling, I saw a turtle (!) at Pirate's Bay, Charlotteville.
Really great view from the terrace which had a refreshing breeze to cool us down.

Food: Super. The home made Beef Burger is my favourite, but the Fish, and Lamb, .. oh and the Chicken were all great! And if you have room there was even a home made chocolate brownie. We went for our anniversary and had a special heart shape one which was a lovely touch. Food is cooked using a Western meets Caribbean style.

I have the Pepper Sauce,again home made, and home grown they said now back in England, to remind me of the Tobago flavour I miss so much!

oh.. and we had our 2 year old son and were made to feel very welcome, he was supplied with a high chair, an extra plate to share our food,special plastic cup,and crayons to draw a picture (which they then put on their "wall of fame").

One thing, No alcohol sold there, but you can bring your own or purchase in the bar next door and drink it with your meal.

I know lots of people say good if you driving around the island, but we caught a bus and just got off at the Delaford stop, very easy.
