Laid-back, enjoyable breakfast of saltfish, eggs, bacon, toast and an awesome currant pastry at this centrally-located coffee shop, near a beautiful little waterfall

They only do the BBQ on a Saturday night when then they advertise a steel band but which is actually one guy and his music machine but he was very good.

We visited this charming little place for dinner and we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent, given we're veggies it can be hit or miss. Music, drinks, and a show, although we waited for dinner to start longer than expected, it was well worth the wait. The owner/servers were very accommodating and friendly. Would certainly recommend this place for coffee,... More

Great night of music and dancing. We didn't eat but it looked good. They tried to teach me to dance Caribbean style, great fun but not very successful. Great evening.

My wife and I went to the Saturday evening BBQ. Good food on a charcoal BBQ with a few beers for TTD200. We went the following week with our daughter and her boyfriend. Same food on a Gas BBQ and perhaps a few more beers and an ice cream for TTD700. Felt ripped off.

OMG the coconut bake, don't have toast and do have the coconut bake, I'm not sure any breakfast will ever be the same without it.

Had a one hour pitstop here while passing through Castara and I can honestly say they made the best iced coffee/cafe frappe I have ever had! That's coming from someone who lives in London and has coffee all over the place. We had several! Lovely little spot, very friendly staff and we would revisit any time! Highly recommend!

Visited it, since it was the only open facility in Castara at about 11:00 Am. A simple bar, as about 10.000 similar bars around the world. Serving some basic snacks and sandwiches. Was promised to get a real espresso and after asking twice whether they really have an espresso machine (and positively answered), we got some dark brown liquid.

Toured over lot of Tobago and could not find a better place for breakfast which was on our doorstep. If you are touring do not pass. You will be set up for the day!
