Tobago offers a large variety of different cuisines all around the island. A few of our personal favourites are:
La Tartaruga in Buccoo; an Italian restaurant offering a choice of al fresco dining on their covered terrace or in their indoor restaurant. They have a wide selection of fine Italian cuisine: homemade pasta, pizza, fish and rock lobsters, in-house desserts and Gelato. A full vegetarian menu is available.
The restaurant owner, Gabriele, also holds an award winning wine cellar bringing the glory of Italy’s famed wine regions to the tranquil shores of Tobago.
Equally as inviting and Italian is the Ciao Café located in Scarborough. The small café in the busy town centre is great for an Italian espresso and wonderful home-made ice cream – a perfect cooler from the bustling market streets.
The Watermill Restaurant, along Shirvan Road. The restaurant itself beautiful with a pond abundant with fish, and their cuisine is exquisite, their speciality being creole cuisine.
The Fish Pot down in “the village” in Black Rock: with a daily menu that changes according to the catch of the day, it specializes in fresh fish and seafood, paired with outstanding sides. For the serious carnivores, The Fish Pot menu includes beef entrees including a steak sandwich, steak and fries, and a homemade hamburger with cheese.
Out at Speyside there’s the famous Jemma’s treehouse restaurant. A restaurant built as part of a large tree with a magnificent view over the sea front and on Goat Island.
The Kariwak Hotel at Crown Point also does a great Sunday breakfast buffet with fruit, cereals, yoghurts, omelettes and fresh local fish, with coffee, tea and hot chocolate.
