Description: A brightly coloured gem of a spot well known for fresh foods, friendly service and great views in a setting of locally made handicraft, art, jewellery and clothing. We are nestled in the village of Lambeau near to Scarborough Tobago. Our decor is that of a rustic and handmade finish with a natural atmosphere for those that enjoy the beauty of nature.

Like so much in the West Indies, there are hidden gems tucked away in unsuspecting spots. Step into this humble looking building and find local treasures worth taking home: pretty local paintings, historical, children's story and cookery books, cards, and even a book exchange. A few steps to the left and the sweetest restaurant. Take a seat besides the cat basking in the shade, find yourself soothed by the tumbling waves and kick back to enjoy delicious local fare, made to order. Giselle and her team took time to explain and answer all our questions with enthusiasm in laid back Caribbean style. We ordered so much it was time to lime the afternoon away. On a side note, being originally a Brit I loved the carved wooden 'loo' sign, classic! And the artistic fabric covered roofing overhead. Check out next door's 'Being with Horses', that too a very special Tobago experience. You'd be mad to miss out on Shore Things, its a gem!

Absolutely loved the dining room nestled in lush vegetation, overlooking the sea. Scores of birds, gentle breezes and a wonderful lunch menu. The food was all amazing. Loved the shrimp crepes and Coconut cream pie.Thx to Giselle and her crew.

We discovered this out of the way place about 6 Tobago vacations ago. In our experience, there is no better lunch in the world. The food is fresh, beautifully prepared and artfully served in a simple yet friendly, relaxed setting that will make you want to linger. The sea just below your feet, the birds just beyond your fingertips, the chickens milling around the grounds and the occasional iguana in the fruit trees all add to the experience. Their fresh fruit juices are spectacular and their deserts just scrumptious.

Almost every time we go to Pennysavers for groceries we stop at Shore Things for lunch on the way home. Top the day off with a hike in the mountains or an afternoon at the beach and follow that by grilling the catch of the day bought from a fisherman at the pier on way home. Then enjoy the feast with your favorite cold drink as you and your love sit and watch the sun go down into the Caribbean. It just doesn't get any better than that.

It's always so nice when you drop by and linger a bit...the chickens are still there, it's been a little too wet for the iguanas, though we did see a largely pregnant one the other day..so there is hope for the future.
thanks for the review and see you soon...

Always have a wonderful time at this quirky little restaurant/gift shop. The setting is lovely, seating on the verandah with a view of the sea, surrounding garden and active bird-feeder. All the items on the menu are delicious - a really great place for lunch - save room for one of the delicious desserts! Service is friendly and attentive. Owner, Giselle, is a delight. Don't miss this place!
