Restaurants & Eating Out

These listings provide details of 130 Tobago restaurants, cafés, take-aways and other dining outlets where visitors to Tobago can find a bite to eat, day or night. Please note that whilst restaurants and dining spots are numerous in the more-populated south-west of Tobago (regions 1, 2 and 6), they are far less frequent in more rural parts of the island.

Our listings are grouped by the standard geographical regions that we use throughout this site. Having identified eateries of interest, why not use our interactive satellite map to see the exact physical location of every Tobago restaurant, café and dining spot listed here?

We recommend that you use the filters in the adjacent blue panel to switch on just the type of dining establishment that you are interested in.

Your opinion is important to us, so please add your vote for every Tobago restaurant, cafe, take-out of dining establishment that you have used in the past year. It's as easy as clicking on the establishment's RSR icon and then selecting your vote.

Shepherd's Inn, Old Store Bay Road, Crown Point

Shepherds Inn is a cosy and friendly hotel conveniently located in Crown Point. The hotel’s charming Betsy’s Hope Restaurant is in a charming covered-pagoda-style restaurant that overlooks the swimming pool and cabanas. It almost feels like dining outside, with the benefit of a roof. The restaurant is open to both the public and resident guests. It has undergone several changes since opening, in early 2015, but the efforts of a new chef are making it a serious contender on the local dining scene. The cuisine can is an interesting fusion between local and international. It is a great place for a drink, even when not dining, and there is normally always live entertainment on Thursday evenings.

Café Coco is owned by the Coco Reef Resort and located just a short distance behind the hotel, in Store Bay Road (first left turn from Pigeon Point Road). The café seats up to 200 and is ideal for wedding receptions and similar functions. The restaurant is, however, sub-divided into a number of smaller, very attractive, areas to ensure that patrons are never overawed by the size. The restaurant undoubtedly boasts Tobago’s nicest décor. The cuisine is perhaps best described as international grill, which seems rather at odds with the sumptuous decor. Well worth a visit. Open daily from 6:30pm.

Trinbago Curry House

Robert Street, Canaan

The Trinibago Curry House seems to attract hugely varied reports from customers, with some visitors loving their offerings and others the opposite. They are only open for lunch and specialise in filled rotis. Previously located in Pigeon Point Road, the business relocated to Robert Street (opposite Stumpy's Emporium) in Canaan in early 2018.

It may not be the most romantic of venues, but prices are reasonable and the quality adequate, although friendly service and smiles are invariably sadly lacking.

Bake My Day

Bake My Day is a small bakery selling cakes and cafe from a smart new unit tucked away in a corner of the new Shirvan Plaza. In addition to the cakes and bakery products, they also offer a good range of baguettes, sandwiches and light meals. Ideal for light lunches. We were initially impressed with the look of the place. However, when charged TTD$100 for two slices of what turned out to be quite mediocre cake, we were left with a very sour taste in the mouth. They are open from 10:30am to 6pm every day except Sunday.

Cafe Cream Cheese Yogurteria

Orange Hill Nature Ranch, Orange Hill

The Orange Hill Nature Ranch is well-known for its wonderful goat cheese and yogurt. Although only minutes from the busiest parts of the island, the journey is well worth the short drive and you will feel that you are in a different world because the ranch is located on an abandoned sugar cane estate. German owner, Josefa Patience, single-handedly manages her goat herd and will be glad to show you around. Afterwards, you can visit the delightful patio where Josefa operates Café Cream Cheese Yogurteria. Spoil yourself on her wonderful selection of fresh coffee and home-made savouries and sweets. Well-worth a visit. Open 11am to 6pm daily.

Patino's Restaurant & Bar

Enchanted Waters, Shirvan Road, Buccoo

In our experience, Patino’s Restaurant & Bar at the Enchanted Waters hotel is capable of great dining. However, performance is astonishingly erratic and even on the same evening, some patrons can report a great experience and others a dreadful one. The same applies to service, with exceptionally slow service (even for Tobago) being a common complaint. We further understand that the hotel and restaurant have been facing financial issues for a few years now and it is difficult to establish whether the restaurant is open or closed.

The charming Bingi, and his lovely wife Hazel, are two of the best ambassadors for Castara and Tobago. Located beside the main Northside Road immediately before the turn down to Little ‘Heavenly’ Bay in Castara, what first appears to be a shack turns out to be a veritable store house inside. Apart from the usefulness of this little mini-mart, Hazel is a wonderful cook and is particularly noted for her bread. There is no set menu or hours of operation – just ask Hazel what she is cooking and when, then put your name down. You are welcome to eat on their small veranda, but most people take the food back to their accommodation. Try them – the food is great and the interaction with Bingi and Hazel will always bring a smile to your face.

Cuffie River Nature Retreat

Runnemede Valley

Based on frequent stays and visits to the fantastic Cuffie River Nature Retreat over the past 15 years, I can only repeat what we say in our review: owner, Regina, produces the best Caribbean cuisine that I have every experienced. She turns local foodstuffs that I would never consider elsewhere into gastronomic delicacies. Reservations are required for dinner or lunch. High tea and refreshments available. We strongly recommend booking a morning nature tour (any day except Saturday) with the hotel, followed by a leisurely lunch. Frankly, I can't think of a nicer day out. Very highly recommended.

Their opening hours are also a little more reliable than other eateries in the village, who often appear to open and close on a whim. Marguarite’s is open for dinner every day and for lunch throughout the winter high season months. In addition to the normal local fare, they also offer excellent fish and chips and home-baked pizza (24-hour notice). They don’t have an alcohol licence, but you are welcome to take your own beer or wine (but not spirits). Maurgarite's is as good as it gets in Castara. Highly recommended.

The Sunshine Restaurant & Bar will be of interest to holidaymakers touring the island and/or the Bloody Bay area. The bar is open throughout the day and on most evenings and is very popular with the locals. The restaurant built an excellent reputation under the management of previous owner, Vaness. The restaurant-bar then closed and was eventually re-opened by her daughter. Vaness has now opened another establishment, under her own name, right next door.

Vaness

Bloody Bay

Vaness is owned by a lady of the same name. She previously owned and ran the adjacent Sunshine Restaurant, which is now run by her daughter. Go figure!!! Vaness cooked us the best crayfish we've ever had on our last visit. Recent reports indicate her excellent reputation for great seafood dishes continues.

Bird Watcher's Restaurant & Bar

Main Road, Speyside

The Bird Watcher’s Restaurant & Bar is located on the sea-facing side of the road, immediately adjacent to the main North Coast Road as it passes through Speyside village. They are open during the day and offer standard Creole food. Their macaroni pie was particularly good. The location may not be as interesting as their main competitor, Jemma’s, just up the road, but the Bird Watcher’s is not as touristy, the cooking of higher quality and the service friendlier and more efficient.

Blue Waters Inn

Batteaux Bay, Speyside

The Blue Waters Inn occupies a stunning location in beautiful Batteaux Bay near Speyside. The hotel’s Aqua restaurant and bar are open to the public for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with drinks and bar snacks being available from noon to 10pm daily. The hotel has undergone a major remodelling and refurbishment in recent years. The Blue Waters has always been one of our favourite places to stop off for lunch when doing circular tours of Tobago.

Jemma's Seaview Kitchen

Main Road, Speyside

Jemma's Treehouse, or Jemma's Seaview Kitchen to name it correctly, is a restaurant that has become more of a sightseeing feature than a place of culinary excellence. The restaurant is somewhat incongruously positioned in, and around, a seafront almond tree. It offers great views of Goat Island. All the bus tour parties tend to stop here and it can become extremely busy and the vibe is very touristy, but many visitors love the experience. Closed Saturdays.

Kings Bay Cafe

Delaford/King's Bay

Located on the main Windward Road just before King's Bay, the King's Bay Cafe established itself as one of Tobago’s most popular lunchtime venues. Sadly, the American-British owners Michael and Joanne left Tobago in 2014. The café eventually re-opened with a new local owner. The nature of the café has changed dramatically and this small restaurant appears to have lost its appeal to visitors touring Tobago.

Redman Simple Restaurant

Main Street, Speyside

Redman’s Simple Restaurant is located beside the main road through Speyside village. The ‘simple’ modern building may be unprepossessing but owner, Maria, always offers a friendly smile and great service and the creole home cooking always seems to attract positive comments. They are often also open for dinner on Saturday evenings, when other nearby touristy restaurants are closed. Well worth trying.

It is open for lunch and through the afternoon and has received such excellent reports that it has become very much the “go to” place in this end of the island. Get there early though; there are only a few tables and it gets pretty busy. Big helpings of tasty, fresh local food at affordable prices. Open from 11am to 3pm daily, but closed on Mondays.

Blue Crab Restaurant

Main & Robinson St, Scarborough

The Blue Crab has long been recognised as Scarborough’s premier lunchtime dining spot. Popular with local politicos and business owners, owners Alison and Kenneth always offer a friendly welcome. The cuisine is distinctly Caribbean, but far above the basic standards of most local restaurants on the island. Well worth a try if you are in Scarborough around lunchtime. They are normally open for lunch from 11am-3pm, Monday to Friday and dinner on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings, by reservation. It is always important to ring and reserve first.

Café Havana Bar & Restaurant

Café Havana primarily caters for guests staying at the Bacolet Beach Club and adjacent Half Moon Blue hotels. However, it is does accept non-residents for lunch and dinner. The setting and ambience are lovely, and we have had some great meals there, but also a terrible one. Service can be similarly erratic. The biggest issue, however, is the exorbitant prices.

Italian owner, Marcello, and his Trinidadian wife, Indra, are an affable duo with just the right manner and approach. They do a grand job providing authentic, simple, Italian dishes at very affordable prices from small café-type premises just off the Claude Noel Highway near the Gulf City Mall. The cuisine is an interesting Italian-Trini fusion and they serve a traditional British style roast beef dinner on Sunday evenings (last Sunday of month during summer months). They are open from Tuesday to Sunday from 5pm to 10pm.

Magdalena Grand

Magdalena Grand, Tobago Plantations

The Magdalena Grand Beach & Golf Resort is Tobago’s largest resort hotel. Resident guests and the public can avail themselves of two restaurants, a grill and a small café serving coffee and pastries. We can thoroughly recommend all these restaurants.

Pembois Restaurant & Terrace is the resort’s main restaurant, offering both indoor and outdoor seating on the pool terrace and serving breakfast, BBQ lunches and dinner buffets. Entertainment is provided on Wednesday and Friday evenings during the busier winter months. Although reservations aren’t always essential, it is best to check with the hotel as this restaurant is closed on one or two evenings per week (normally Tuesday and Wednesday).

Kali’na Restaurant is the pièce de résistance of the resort. This is the hotel’s fine dining restaurant and whilst hugely expensive, you are unlikely to be disappointed. Some of the very finest meals we’ve ever enjoyed on Tobago have been in this restaurant. Reservation is essential. This restaurant is open from 6:30pm to 10:30pm from Tuesday to Saturday.

As the name suggests, the Salaka Grill is a more casual restaurant housed in a covered pavilion beside the pool and sea. The hours of opening vary, so always check first.

Rena Chatack Roti Shop

Milford Road, Scarborough

A firm lunchtime favourite with locals is Rena Chatack Roti Shop in downtown Scarborough. This small roti is located on the ground floor at the side of the red TLH/UTT building opposite the Scarborough Esplanade. Many people rate the filled rotis, buss-up-shot and curries to be amongst the best in Trinidad & Tobago. They are open from 11am to 3pm, but it is best to get there well before noon, as they get VERY busy and things can run out. There are a couple of tables to eat in, but the environment is not best suited to dining, so we only recommend as a take-out.

The Salsa Kitchen Tapas Restaurant isn’t the easiest of places to find (unless you use our location map) and the premises are unprepossessing and less than obvious, but believe you me, once you have covered these hurdles you will be in for a treat. This very small restaurant serves Venezuelan-style tapas and fresh pizza. Ideally, go in a party of 4-6 people where you can order a plate or two of every dish and then mix and share. What flavours! All the cooking is done by owner Paul while her partner, Iain handles front of house. They normally open Tuesday to Sunday from 6pm-11pm, but advance booking is absolutely essential.

Shore Things Cafe & Craft

Shore Things Café & Craft is a lovely bright cafe with a cosy sea-view veranda where a constant stream of bananaquits and other colourful local birds come in to enjoy the well-stocked feeders. The cafe is perfect for a drink and snack or lunch and their cakes and desserts are dreamy. Fresh bread, salad, whole wheat pizza, decadent desserts plus local crafts. This is our personal favourite lunchtime retreat in the southwest of Tobago. They are open Monday to Friday, from 11am to 6pm. They also tend to open on slightly reduced hours on Saturdays during the busier winter months. Shore Things is also a shop, selling locally-made handicrafts, art, jewellery and music.

Shutters On The Bay

Blue Haven Hotel, Bacolet

The Blue Haven Hotel is a 55-room luxury boutique hotel situated beside beautiful Bacolet Bay and beach. Although primarily catering for resident guests, the hotel has two restaurants and a bar that are open to the general public.

Shutters on the Bay is the hotel’s formal dining room. Located in an attractive colonial-style villa beside the hotel, with immediate access from the car park, the restaurant serves breakfast and dinner. The cuisine can best be described as a fusion of international with West Indian ingredients and spices. The menu changes daily and whilst the choice is limited, we have enjoyed every meal there.

The hotel also owns and runs the No Problem beach bar on the sands of adjacent Bacolet Bay beach. The café is open from mid-morning until late afternoon for drinks and serves light luncheons from a limited, but enticing, menu.
