I am rarely disappointed by service, as I like leisurely eating, and I am even less likely to write a critical review, but feel I have to in this case. We went at lunchtime, and despite booking no table was ready for us and it seemed an ordeal to get set up. We were told that some things were off... More

My family and I went to have a getaway lunch from the busy city and crowd. When we arrived it was not what we had expected but decided to dine anyway since we know of the quality of the food on previous visits and we were all hungry. We were greeted with a waitress after 10mins of seating and then... More

What can I say? The effect of dining by the Sea right over the water. Beautiful. Prices are but high but the food is fantastic. Same owner as the sails restaurant at power boats. Recommended!

Been here several times - last times in March 2014. We always ask for a table outside. Situated in a marina you would think fish would be the big thing, but actually we go there for meat - filet Mignon and rib eye - and those are really good, cooked as you ask for. Sides (vegetables) could maybe be a... More

With new management this place is shining! I have been here four times in the las three months and the food is incredibly good and hands down the best in Port of Spain, forget Buzo, this is a true restaurant with a delicious cuisine. Make sure to try the seafood melody (for two) or the red snapper which are both... More

What a lovely place to have dinner with someone special. It is very quiet, romantic. You have a view of the Marina. A choice of indoor and outdoor dining. The food was absolutely delicious, portions were just the right amount not too much and not too little. I would definitely recommend this to anyone both local and tourist to try... More

This quaint little restaurant on the waterfront is simple and comfortable, although it could use some updating. It carries a nautical ambiance and has a clean decor. The menu is uncomplicated with some variety, but not very descriptive about the dishes on offer. It was a little surprising that meat was such a focus on the menu rather than seafood... More

My boyfriend and I went to the Lure for his birthday and it far surpassed our expectations. The food was great, the prices were good as well but the service was the best. Nicole was our server for the night and she was pleasant and made us fee like we had known her for a long time! We got to... More

twenty years travellling to trinidad and found this place by accident, probably the best outlook sat at a table by the water in Chaguaramus. Service is very good attentive staff and best of all the food is delicious.
