“Hummingbirds and Marguritas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

I loved staying in Tobago in the little fishing village of Castara. It's a gem. I discovered the Castara Retreats but sadly they were full up- tip book up far in advance it was wonderful. However we decided to go and check it out for morning coffee. Will was in charge of the Restaurant/ bar that morning and made us feel like VIP members of the family. We were looked after so well we were still there late into the afternoon trying the perfectly mixed cocktails and watching the Hummingbirds- they can get very rowdy. Will introduced us to guests as they arrived and looked after everyone beautifully. It was such a great bar we returned several evenings for cocktails at sunset. When I saw the pictures on here it makes me want to go straight back now. Will can you mix me up a nice....your choice I know it will be good!

“Best place in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

In the village of Castara this is the best place in town. The amazing views will stay with you for a long time. The menu is surprisingly international and varied with excellent use of local fresh ingredients from freshly caught fish to the remarkable hand made pasta. However what put this place on the map is the professional yet friendly service of William, from London, who will make feel you welcome and ensure you will have a great experience. His bar is surprising well stocked so this is place is for after hours drinks too.

“Excellent "International" Cuisine in Castara”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

This is the only restaurant I found in Castara that actually serves you a printed menu with numerous options for a three-course meal. It is pricey compared to the other village spots, but the food is delicious, fresh, and local. Highly recommended!

“Nice restaurant with wonderful view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

Good food, nice eco-friendly image, wonderful view from the hill-side and near the beautiful bay of Castara. We stayed by with car, it can be tricky to park it in the small parking spot. Connected to the hotel Castara Retreats
