Had reservation for dinner with friends at 7 pm on a Monday and were the first ones there. The menu and wine list are superb and the steak offerings were great. I had the lobster bisque and pork chop, medium well and it was tasty but dry; another had the oysters and said that it was very good- as good... More

Food is good but expensive. Great for an occasion. Portions of sides are large so can easily be shared.

The Service was great from being greeted at the entrance to being seated. The service was very good, and ambience was nice. We sat by the window near the water and had a good view of outside. The food was good, the rib-eye we had was superb, the salmon was cooked well too. Wine list was extensive and also varied... More

I am a Primer for the longest while...It is the most consistent and hifh quality Restaurant in Trinidad, maybe the region. It is on par with ANY steakhouse I have ever been to, and it actually puts Smith& W, Ruths Chris, Palm and Capital in its backpocket. It is rivalled only by BLT steak and Mortons in my book.

I recently went there for my birthday with my bf and the food and the service was superb. Truly one of the best restaurants in Trinidad but it's a lil on the pricey side

This is my favourite restaurant for absolutely special occasions and it holds its own even compared to Michelin starred restaurants I've been to abroad. Hands down the best steak in the region. The seafood is always perfectly done and the desserts are delightful. The staff is friendly and the wine selection is very good. I've been going to this restaurant... More

Is out of this world. A must have. Enjoyed the filet. Was cooked just right. Medium rare and crunchy on the outside. Yum yum. It was a nice setting inside and the staff was not the friendliest, at least I didn't think so and not quite so helpful. Since my husband is a steak kind of guy, we went, but... More

Daughter and Son in law took me last week, and although I have been before this time was superb beyond words. The chef did a vegetarian meal for me- in a Steakhouse- and it was marvelous. The others had steak and lamb and was excellent and the service was unnoticeable yet perfect-no complaints here at all.
