The food at ‘Franks’, as it is known locally, is fresh and fabulous - the chilli garlic buttered lobster is second to none. We came here in the quiet season so whilst open at lunchtimes you need to call up to ensure they are open...More

You have a choice of chicken, fish, shrimp or lobster. They serve beer, it’s right by the sea and it’s very friendly. So what’s not to like. Good solid local food. Getting lobster for TT300 is pretty good and it was well cooked.

It's an unassuming restaurant without much style BUT do go for the lobster. It's delicious, simply cooked with a tasty chilli, garlic butter, with Caribbean sides. Goes well with the chilled white wine. Friendly service and one of the few restaurants in Speyside that is...More

Friendly staff and owner. A limited menu with a local flavour but really good food to get a taste of Tobago. All reasonable priced and quickly prepared.

We had read a review stating Birdwatcher's do the best lobster on Tobago, and decided to give it a go, despite the somewhat uninspiring room and view to the car park. We were blown away! This is not only the best lobster on the island,...More
