“Best steak I've had in a long time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

This was our first experience at the Sunset Grill inside the Cher-Ae Casino in Trinidad. My brother & sister-in-law had eaten here before and recommended it. We were so pleased from the moment we were greeted by the hostess, taken to a great table with an excellent view, taken great care of by our server and absolutely enchanted with the entertainment for the evening. For a Friday evening, it was rather quiet, so we got to personally chat with and be serenaded by Michael Dayvid, who is a very talented singer/song-writer. The food was superb! My steak was perfectly done, and the grilled veggies were exactly, if not more, than I had hoped for. There were 6 of us for dinner and everyone agreed that the meal was excellent. We highly recommend this restaurant -- and also were happy to find an entrance that didn't take us through the casino and the usual smoke.

“What a View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

There were three of us for dinner on 1/2/2014. It opened at 5:00 pm and it was just in time to see a fantastic sunset. Our food server was very attentive and very polite. We all had the "early bird special". There were three, but we decided to have the fresh rock cod. It was lightly battered and fried. Crisp on the outside and tender and moist on the inside. It could not have been done any better. It came with two sides and a small dessert. All for $20. The monies were well spent. We have had dinner there before and will eat there again. We highly recommend this restaurant. Could not be happier with the food and the view.

“Food getting better & better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Having eaten here several times before, I wasn't expecting much but this meal was exceptional! We had some 'casino cash' to spend so decided to have dinner at the Sunset. They seated us by the corner window with the view of Trinidad Bay. Our server was Riley-great service, attentive. Got the prime rib (early bird special, no kidding!) that came with garlic potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and sautéed zucchini & yellow squash. Liking a more well done piece, I ordered the end cut-it was AMAZING; well seasoned, tender and just enough fat. Vegetables cooked al dente and the popovers (Yorkshire) were seasoned not plain. The au jus was the most flavorful I've ever had anywhere so I asked if they could save it along with my doggie bag. My only complaint? Why didn't they add my popovers?? I was so disappointed when I ate my leftovers for lunch the next day and it wasn't there. Oh well, everything else was great and that's more than OK with me.

“What a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

The setting is just wonderful. A beautiful view over the marina and anchored boats right around sunset. The service was very good right from the start. The wine that my wife chose was a bit too tart and Ashley, our waitress was very gracious and offered another, which was very nice
My seafood alfredo was great and my wife's salmon perfect.
An overall nice dining experience in the north coast area.

“What Happened?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

This has been a pretty acceptable place to eat, and the quality of the food served was still good, but no one was there. The first and foremost thing I noticed was that the prices have gone way up. I was a little put off as I assume the restaurant is partially subsidized by the Casino. I guess I am not a fan of any casino eating. I could hardly enjoy my meal because I couldn't take my eyes off the prices. I had wanted to eat some place else, but was overruled by my eating companions.

The meal was very good in spite of my troubles about the upcoming bill. I had Ahi tuna and it was actually excellent. All eating enjoyed the food, it's just the prices were such a turn off I doubt that I will consider returning.

I realize this is a late reply, but I am new here and am actively responding to the old reviews. I am sorry to hear about your experience with us and I agree with you about the pricing getting out of hand. This is something that has been looked at and adjusted. The menu is vastly better and the prices are more reasonable. We have hired a new Food and Beverage Manager who is going to bring many exciting changes to our restaurant and make Sunset Restaurant a venue worthy of the view. We have been working hard with our staff and management and hope, given the chance, future experiences with us will be above reproach.
