“Best meal of our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2013 via mobile

We were searching for good, authentic local food for our last night on the island, after finding a lot of touristy options, many of which seemed watered down or over priced. On a whim, we stopped at Food4U and WOW, did Derrick deliver! His artistry and passion for food shines through, with the best, nuanced calaloo soup we've had (which is saying something, as two of us have Trini roots) and tasty fish broth soup for starters, followed by our delicious mains of curried crab and dumplings and fish in an amazing creole sauce. We finished our meal with a light and tasty sweet potato cake, which Derrick plated uniquely in honor of our visit. We had a chance to chat with him and ended the meal with an entertaining surprise. Had we found this place earlier, we would have been regulars during our stay. No doubt we will be back. Thanks so much for an unforgettable meal, Derrick!

“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2012

Local food at its best. Including a fresh Coconut right from the tree at the end. Liked it very much and we would go there again. Picks you up with Taxi from any where.

“Food4U was brilliant - warm, friendly Tobagonian hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2012

We went to Food4U when it had just opened up, in summer 2012. Derrick, the owner, treated us so well, it was one of the best meals we had all holiday; not simply because of the food, (which was lovely) but because he was so sweet, and hospitable. We got a song at the end of the night, and his dad even drove us home. It felt less like a restaurant and more like going to a friend of friend's for dinner.
It was so refreshing, after two weeks of eating at all the hotels and tourist restaurants.
Don't go to Tobago, without payng him a visit. (And ask him to sing you a song!)
Thanks Derrick,
Lucy and Nico
