RSR Castara Retreats Restaurant
Tel: 766-1010 / 3
Expensive for what is offered. Top ratings in our RSR poll when first opened, but frequency and nature of votes has fallen dramatically over past 18 months. Votes now less enthusiastic, or negative. This mirrors local opinion which changed from positive to negative, following alleged reports of food hygiene issues.
RSR Cuffie River Nature Retreat
The best Caribbean cuisine that I have ever tasted. Reservations are required for dinner or lunch. High tea and refreshments available. We strongly recommend booking a morning nature tour (all days except Saturday) with the hotel, followed by a leisurely lunch. Frankly, I can't think of a nicer day out.
RSR Boat House Restaurant
Depot Road, Little Bay, Castara
Wednesday night is music night. $TT200 per person for entertainment centred around African drums and sometimes steel pan. Hugely variable catering. Closed Saturdays.
RSR Cascreole Bar & Beach Club
Castara Main Beach
Should be a local gold mine given its stunning location on Castara's main beach. Sadly the opposite is more the case. Very mixed reports. They are undoubtedly capable of producing a good meal, but erratic service and opening mean that visitors tend to opt for more reliable local alternatives.
RSR Clay Kitchen
Castara Bay Road No 2
Menu a little more varied than other establishments in the village and Rebecca is undoubtedly a good cook. We are therefore surprised by the relatively poor RSR votes this restaurant attracts. They hold regular late-night entertainment, with associated disturbance to local visitor accommodation properties. Perhaps this is the reason that the holiday market haven't taken the establishment to heart?
RSR Coffee Shop (Cheno's)
Main Road, Castara
The Coffee Shop, or Cheno's as it is more commonly known, has become THE place for holidaymakers to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. The catering is modest, but this is more than offset by the warmth of welcome, in a village not known for smiling staff. Well done, Chino!
RSR D'Almond Tree (Vera's)
This establishment is something of a contradiction. The cold, unappetising rotis and owner's surly, rude manner has always left us unimpressed. However, we accept that many visitors enjoy the place. Perhaps this has more to do with the location than the cuisine or service. So, don't be put off by our comments. After all, you have little choice for lunch in Castara.
RSR Eula's Restaurant
An unauthorised shack (upper floor added since photo taken) built on THA land at Englishman's Bay and operating despite eviction notices. No running water or drainage. Eat at your own risk! WARNING: The family running this cafe have numerous criminal convictions and are alleged to be responsible for most of the crime against tourists in the Castara area. Befriend and berobbed! Avoid like the plague!.
RSR Golden Flower
Main Road, Moriah
Golden Flower is a small local restaurant located beside the main road in Moriah village.
RSR L & H Sunset
Castara Bay Road, Castara
Located above the Grocery shop, next to the Fishing Cooperative. Upstairs dining patio. One visitor describes it as offering the best basic menu in Castara at the best basic price. Visitors may rightly find the take-it-or-leave-it attitude off-putting and feel more inclined to dine somewhere more hospitable (not easy in Castara).
RSR Marguarite's Local Cuisine
Main Road, Castara
Located next to the school at the start of the village centre. Very good food. Fish & Chips and excellent home-baked pizza. Take-away service, with delivery. No alcohol licence, but you can take your own beer and wine, but not spirits. Maurgarite's is as good as it gets in Castara. Open for lunch and dinner.
RSR Sunshine Restaurant
Described by one visitor as "delicious, hot and very reasonable". We enjoyed a fabulous Crayfish dinner there in 2007 - as expensive as lobster, but just as good. Service was friendly and welcoming. The restaurant closed for a year or two, but is apparently open now.
Vaness is owned by a lady of the same name. She previously owned and ran the adjacent 'Sunshine Restaurant', now operated by her daughter. Vaness cooked us the best crayfish we've ever had on our last visit. Recent reports indicate her reputation with seafood continues.
