I am a 'local'... in a sense, I am a Jamaican living in Tobago with my Tobagonian wife for a little over a year. I had tried a few restaurants but it was coming up to our 1st anniversary and I wanted to do something extra special. I decided to choose from the top places in Trip Advisor. Very close to the top was this unique gem, the concept of a restaurant just for 2 people immediately piqued my interest and it was all I expected and more.
Upon arrival I was expecting to pull into a business place but I soon realised that it was nestled in the home of Elspeth, our amazing hostess for the evening. The setting was a private little balcony facing the ocean, with the night sky and stars as the ceiling. The setting was intimate and peaceful. Placed beside us was the custom themed menu board, based on my previous conversations with her. It outlined the many courses of meals and activities planned for the night. This is where the surprises came in, the evening was planned with activities that allowed my wife and I to bond and deeply discuss the far reaching effects of our love.
Each course of the meal had its theme and related activities. Elspeth was only around when she was serving food and would only come when we summoned her with a cool little 'bell soundy thingy' (please forgive me for forgetting its name). At the end she further surprised us by making a video of us verbally expressing our love to each other, while using symbolisms of items in the setting... it was beautiful.
Another reason I chose TFT was because my wife and I are vegetarians. I have experienced exotic vegetarian food at restaurants in Jamaica including raw food dishes but haven't found anything like that in Tobago. This however was the closest I had gotten since leaving home. Elsphet prepared a nice eclectic selection of vegetarian/vegan dishes and unique flavours that you wouldn't find anywhere else in Tobago.
I would HIGHLY recommend this for someone looking to have more than just food but an unforgettable experience.
