Arriving at the Arnos Vale EcoLodge which is one of the Table for Two venues was an adventure in itself. Arnos Vale climbs one of Tobago’s many luscious hills bedecked in emerald green attire, glistening with diamond droplets of tropical rain. A steep hill incline with rustic paths our drivers task was complete when we reached the entrance to this unique dining location. Upon our arrival Elspeth introduced herself and her softly spoken words were soothing to our ears. A feeling of recognition rested easily on all three of us. This was going to be a night to remember. We were guided down a tropical path to two small cottages in candy coloured paint almost gingerbread in their appearance. Along a wooden deck our evening began. We were guided to our own personal dining space resplendent in its simplicity & vibrant colour. Local fabric tablecloths, low lighting and vanilla coloured shutters are sprung open by our host who politely asked if we are bothered by the wildlife. If this is the wild life then I am all for it! The fairytale aspect of this dining experience is not lost on us, we have arrived at Table for Two. A gentle explanation of the evenings events is given and the dining experience is explained. Let’s make no mistake - this is an experience and one I might add that we will cherish forever. 6 courses of vegetarian cuisine & neither of us are vegetarian. However, as the literature says postpone your preconceptions and be ready to take a journey of discovery. My husband and I are lovers, of Tobago, of good food & I like to think each other. But it is a rare bird that fluttered into our evening to remind us why we love each other, what makes our union so unique and why the universe really does have a plan for us both. Elspeth is not only a chef of quality, she has been given a gift & is happy to share it with us. I can truly say without doubt after 17 years of marriage, this was probably one of the most romantic & insightful evenings of our relationship. Truth,courage,love,abundance,peace,release. We were reminded are what make our own personal union unique. With respect for our evening, the rest is between our host & the stars above. As the rain hit the wooden roof, in the forest of its making and the tiny lights twinkled lighting our exit, Table for Two will forever remain our own little piece of personal heaven.
