“My Clare day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

So I decided to have a family lunch at The Verandah. The day was rainy, we had just been wed and Clare and I had decided to eat at this restaurant that we had never visited before. Mrs. Viera was always hospitable with a phone voice that made one feel always welcome.

.On arrival the staff treated our small party of eight as though we were the only customers there. Met at entrance my 84 year old mother was treated as a special guest with staff helping her navigate the wet staircase on that rainy day. There was nothing we needed that they could not provide, umbrellas, towels and a room for our celebration that did not humbug other patrons

This renovated old house has a wide verandah allowing for open air seating a garden adding to the ambiance and a menu that I would describe as TriniMetro. No time to explain the conjunction except to say it was tasty.

Anyone interested in a peaceful relaxing meal with exceptional service must eat here. Mrs Viera takes a personal interest in the guests’ experience at the restaurant. Her staff emulate her efforts to provide a welcoming and hospitable experience. Invest your time in a wonderful meal and do pay close attention to their opening hours. Have a great time. Clare and I certainly did and will do so again.

“Our favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013 via mobile

This is our favorite restaurant for dinner - and plan carefully - while they are open for lunch all weekdays, they are open for dinner only on Thursdays and Saturdays. The food is excellent, the service great. We love it and recommend it.

“Nice little getaway restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

Nice relaxing restaurant from the hustle and bustleof Port of Spain.

The food is excellent, lots of local dishes.

There is a little wait on the food though so it's a great place to relex with friends or connect with loved ones.

“Great Venue and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2013

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel when their own was full. It was very friendly and the staff were very helpful. We ate in the courtyard - lovely ambience and very quiet apart from the croaks of the tree frogs! The menu was a little limited but the choices suited us and the food could not be faulted.It was maybe not the cheapest of place to go but was well worth it
