My husband, a friend and myself visited the restaurant for a quick dinner during the week. the food took quite a while to be served even though there were only 2 other occupied tables at the time. The soup and the sandwiches were good however. Standard quality.

There was nothing outstanding. Clearly this means that the server was competent. It also means that there was nothing to inspire another visit. When the cheesecake my cousin wanted was unavailable our server was knowledgeable but not pesuasive for an alternative. We both had the red velvet cheesecake which I had selected from my return trip to the showcase.

Ordered grilled mahi mahi, grilled cassava and side salad to go. Service was good, atmosphere is always inviting. The mahi mahi was excellent and the cassava was ok. I purchase mainly lunch items when I visit and the quality is always good. I couldn't eat the meal in one go so I guess the portions served are ok.

I visited this morning for the first time for breakfast. Great friendly staff, clean place and the food was so delicious! Pretty affordable too. Next time I'll try their lunch.

Visited recently with my girlfriend for a lazy Saturday breakfast. Although it was packed, (mainly couples and young families), service was prompt along with the meals. The food was simply presented but came hot and made me feel like I was having breakfast at home but minus the work. Overall an enjoyable experience.

I've been coming here for years. I love their sandwiches and cafe lunches. My absolute favorite is the stuffed chicken great which comes with a side salad and goes so well with mashed potatoes. Recently visited with my mom for lunch and had my usual. Mom had the salmon which was good. Be advised that this is local and not... More

The cakes I ordered were for my nieces' and nephews' birthdays and they all wanted something specific but once i explained what they wanted, Nichossa came through every single time. From order to pick up was great, the prices were reasonable and taste was excellent down to the last crumb. During pick up I would also have lunch was was... More

I was staying in Trinidad for carnival 2015 and the friends I was staying at took me to Nichossa for lunch. I had the maracas wrap which I can honestly say was the best wrap I have ever had! The service was warm and welcoming and very prompt and the desserts to die for. My only complaint is they don't... More

I have had this meal on many occasions and I am never disappointed. The fish is very well done and there is no beating that tangy tamarind sauce. Whether the sides are grilled cassava, fried plantains or sweet potato fries, Nichossa's chef is always on top of his/her game.
