Zanzibar by the Sea
Home from home with an exotic twist
Sporting a bar-friendly menu filled with fun, easy food options, Zanzibar by the Sea is a great place to eat if you’re after relaxed dining. The restaurant’s brightly-coloured décor and its flock of friendly, laid-back staff ensure diners feel at home, however, with dishes such as seafood chef canoa (a mixture of succulent shrimp, calamari, mussels, scallops and pineapple chunks served in a pineapple canoe) available, you’ll never forget you’re dining in the sunny Caribbean!
Western Main Road, Peake Yacht Services
Richard's Bake & Shark
Traditional Trinidadian fayre
Named after a very popular street food sold in Trinidad and Tobago, Richard's Bake & Shark is situated on Maracas Beach and is the locals’ favourite place to get this local delicacy. The restaurant offers this Trinidadian staple - flakey, batter-dipped, deep-fried white fish, stuffed into a soft yet crunchy bun, leaving individuals to add their own toppings of mustards, chutneys, chopped tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and even sliced pineapple. Make sure you wash yours down with another Trinidad treat: bottles of Angostura's Lemon Lime & Bitters.
N coast road, Maracas Bay Village Trinidad and Tobago
