I knew that I had to experience Table for Two after seeing the great reviews on Trip Advisor so while planning my mini break to Tobago, I contacted Elpheth who thankfully was able to accomodate my husband and me. After filling out the e-form on the website and liaising with Elpheth via email, everything was set. I will admit though that I was a bit nervous as my husband who loves his meat, and knowing that the menu would be vegetarian, I wasn't sure how he'd react.

Finally the night of our reservation came. Elpheth's directions were easy to follow and Table for Two's pretty simple to find. We were greeted by our gracious hostess/personal chef for the evening and Venus, the cutest, friendliest little doggie. My husband and I were seated on the balcony overlooking the sea, with softly lit candles and our interesting menu on display. The cool night breeze coupled with the soft music in the background created such a serene and romantic ambience. We both went with an open mind and from the moment we arrived, we were blown away.

I love vegetarian food but when you can get my husband to enjoy a meatless meal as much as he did, you have a winner! Elpheth's dishes were thoughtful, healthy and delicious. We were so excited for each course as we tried to guess what the ingredients making up the dishes were. Between each course, we were given interactive exercises with the goal of connecting with each other. There are no words to describe how truly beautiful this night was.

At the end of the evening, my husband and I felt like Elpheth was a dear long time friend. Elpheth is extraordinary and you can tell from just meeting her, that she is as genuine as they come. When we were leaving, we were give a little goodie bag to remind us of one of the most unforgettable experiences we've ever had.

I would recommend Table for Two to any one (or two:)) wanting to partake in a unique and soulful experience.

Thanks again Elpheth.

My brother joined me for a few days in Tobago and I roped him into going with me to Table For Two. I had wanted to experience the uniqueness of the evening as it had been described to me in general terms by others, but traveling alone does not readily allow for 'couples' events, so the timing of his visit was perfect. Elspeth said we were the first brother-and-sister pair...and the evening worked perfectly! Although out of his comfort zone to be doing something like this with a sister, my brother allowed himself to be comfortable with the evening as Elspeth designed it, so it was fun for both of us. I can imagine it would be a terrific way to 'bond' with a romantic-other as the location, the creative and welcoming space created by Elspeth (and as described by other reviewers), Elspeth's attentive and quietly efficient presence and the fabulous food are all very conducive to an evening of intimate sharing and one that could readily take relationships to a deeper level. AND I can attest to the fact that it WORKS for non-romantic and in our case, specially-related twosomes as well.

This review has been long in coming but the fact that I am writing it now and am still excited stands as a testament to the "Table for Two experience".
My wife's birthday is mid October and I started contacting Elspeth EARLY, since I had to plan our children. Chef E was most giving of her knowledge about what we could do with our time alone in Tobago to make the weekend memorable. This included ideas on where to stay and other places to go to. Those suggestions turned into Lillibet's in Castara (with the fabulous view) and Healing with Horses in Buccoo in addition to the Blue Food Festival which i found through other means ;-) We are not 'touristy' so the community vibe of these places was perfect; we also got our orders in early enough at the mud oven in Castara (heavenly).
Back to Table for Two. When we finally got there, we were blown away by the thought that our host put into our evening. To say our meal was catered specifically to us would be downright disrespectful of of the energy put in by Elspeth. More than a meal this was an experience that saw food and activities create a place and space for us to reconnect on a very real level, which is sometimes quite hard to do when everything trying to make us focus more on the children and work than ourselves. When we find that happening lately, one of the things we do is play a video created by Chef E (cooking up great memories and fabulous food) of our special evening.
One problem though, It was so good I do not know what to plan this October (- _ -)
Bless you Elspeth

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.

I surprised my fiancé for his birthday with dinner at TFT. I must say, Chef E is simply the perfect hostess. I didn't know what to expect but it surpassed all I could of thought of. She went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable. The atmosphere was perfect, intimate and romantic. The sounds from the ocean, the calming background music all contributed to us having such a wonderful night. The food was delicious, healthy and presentation was spot on.

From Dominic and I, we thank you Chef E.
