I came across Table For Two, while I was searching for something "different" to do for my husband for his 45th birthday. Tired of the run of the mill fancy restaurants with their rack of lamb, steak, lobster and the like, I thought...aha! Tobago! We got married on the beach in Tobago 16 years ago, so I thought that it might be interesting to search for restaurants in Tobago, just for a change.
I am big reader of reviews for anything, so there Inwas reading up on a few Tobago restaurants, when up pops "Table For Two". The name alone intrigued me but I was absolutely blown away after reading at least 20 reviews. I immediately sent Elspeth an email telling her that I would love to surprise hubby by hopping over to Tobago just to have dinner and the experience at her restaurant. I held my breath awaiting her reply which miraculously was positive and came through in about 5 mins. Boy, the excitement!! Elspeth was along for the ride from the get-go and we communicated quite a bit via email.
Let me just say that Table For Two did not disappoint. It was amazing!! From the moment that I finally met Elspeth, I felt her warmth. She went over and beyond to help to make the surprise for my hubby an incredible success! Needless to say, he was in shock! The dinner and experience was something that I think that was pure genius on Elspeth's part and she seemed to be as excited about pulling off the surprise as I was. She even liaised with a friend of mine who she knew would be picking us up at the airport, to ensure that everything went smoothly. And it did!
The food was simple, delicious, healthy and more than enough. In between each course, there were activities that Elspeth had us do, which made the experience what it was...Incredible! I just have to let you know that the experience lives on, even after the dinner and still continues a week later (we were there on Sunday, March 1st.) Elspeth really puts her heart and soul into making Dinner For Two a memorable experience for all who are lucky enough to try it. My husband and I felt ourselves truly exhale, as we sat at the table and looked up at the moon and the stars in the sky, while hearing the gentle lapping of the waves just below the balcony. Surreal!!
Thanks doesn't seem like enough, but just know that once you've met Elspth and experienced her spirit, you've made a friend.
