I could not recommend breakfast by Ria highly enough!!! In the 5 months I spent in Castara I frequented Ria for breakfast many times. I’m a sucker for a good full English breakfast and Ria does it to perfection. The coffee is fantastic too. If...More

It was really good but not enough meat on that chicken! Fish was fine. Loved the “provisions” (side dishes).

Sherma's Cafe and Bar serves local food that leaves you satisfied. I bought lunch for TT $40 that was truly delicious. 'Good Tobago food' as we Trinis (people from Trinidad and Tobago) like to say - thin dumplings, stewed fish, macaroni pie, provisions; yam, sweet...More

Shirma's is the place for great food by the locals, for the locals and with the locals - at almost 1/2 the cost of the other places! Tasty choices of very well prepped and cooked fish or meat with genuine local sides - if you...More
